2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
In quiet fashion, Burkhead posted a solid 2017 season as the No.18 ranked running back in terms of fantasy points per game. His 10 fantasy point per game was higher than Christian McCaffrey, Tevin Coleman, and Lamar Miller, and he scored the same number of total touchdowns as LeSean McCoy - on 252 fewer touches.

The addition of first-round selection Sony Michel will no doubt cut into the value of Burkhead in 2018, as one would assume that Belichick and the New England front office will look to feature their new prized running back. Despite this fact, Burkhead will continue to have value as the primary goal-line back and could be a steal if Michel continues his trend of fumbling issues dating back to his time at Georgia or has trouble recovering from his knee procedure.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Burkhead dealing with slight tear in knee
Could've played tonight if it were a regular season game
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 16, 11:28 pm

New England Patriots
More clarity: Rex Burkhead is dealing with a slight tear in his knee, but it’s been deemed a minor injury and something he’ll be able to play through. Since it’s the preseason, maintenance takes the priority over everything else. (Jeff Howe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Burkhead has missed the last few practices with an undisclosed injury and Howe reportedly earlier that he likely would've played in Preseason game No.2 if it were a regular season game. The "tear" associated with a knee injury doesn't sound good but it appears this is something the Patriots feel comfortable with Burkhead playing through this season.


Injury Burkhead, Britt, Michel not expected to play
Will miss pre-season Week 2 due to rehab/injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 16, 7:00 am

New England Patriots
While some might not play due to coach’s decision, the following are among those not expected to suit up vs. Eagles for injury/rehab reasons: WR Kenny Britt, RB Rex Burkhead, OT Marcus Cannon, CB Duke Dawson, DE Trey Flowers, CB Ryan Lewis, RB Sony Michel and ST Matthew Slater. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Burkhead's injury is a mystery for now and with the Patriots being tight-lipped, it might be difficult to get clarity in the near future. Jeremy Hill has been limited in practice this week so it's unclear how much playing time he will get this evening. Tom Brady is expected to play the majority of the first half.


Injury Sony Michel suffers knee injury
Requires procedure, will miss pre-season
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 4, 3:00 pm

New England Patriots
Sony Michel suffered a knee injury that concerned the team Wednesday, source said. He still isn’t at practice. Further details w/more clarity: Michel’s knee injury requires a procedure that’s expected to keep him out of preseason, and perhaps even into the start of the reg season, per 2 sources. So not a major sigh of relief, but the expectation is Michel should contribute this season. (Jeff Howe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The injury happened on Wednesday and it appears will sideline the Pats rookie running back for the time being. The procedure was to drain fluid from the knee. The Patriots are notorious for keeping a tight lip on injury situations so it's hard to predict when Michel will be ready for action. While this is a big blow for his fantasy stock, the Patriots have a stockpile of running backs including Rex Burkhead, James White, Mike Gillislee and Jeremy Hill.
