2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
A special teams ace who flashed some talent last season in spot play for the Cincinnati Bengals, Burkhead joins the crowded Patriot backfield along with Mike Gillislee, Dion Lewis, James White, James Develin, D.J. Foster, and of course, Brandon Bolden.

Despite having only 97 career carries, Burkhead owns somewhat of a cult following with fantasy analysts, with the hope that the former Nebraska Cornhusker will emerge as the every down back for Bill Belichick. The more likely scenario is Burkhead will continue to be a fixture on special teams and work in periodically at running back depending on the matchup. He's worth a dart throw late in the double-digit rounds of your draft.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Gronkowski, Amendola back at practice
Rex Burkhead sits
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 20, 1:00 pm

New England Patriots
TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) is present at practice today, as are LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) and WR Danny Amendola (concussion/knee). (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This confirms that Gronk's goin injury last week was minor. He should be good to go in Week 3 barring any setback. Amendola's presence will likely put a dent in the fantasy value of Chris Hogan who is dealing with a knee injury. Rex Burkhead (ribs) missed practice Wednesday.


Injury Amendola ruled out for Patriots
Pats to feature RBs in the passing game?
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 15, 3:00 pm

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots will be without starting linebacker Dont'a Hightower and top slot receiver Danny Amendola for Sunday's road game against the New Orleans Saints, as the club has officially ruled them out with injuries. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Amendola out, Chris Hogan and Brandin Cooks should be Tom Brady's top wideout targets. Belichick may opt to use his running backs (James White, Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis) more in the passing game as newly acquired Phillip Dorsett is the only other healthy receiver on the roster.
