Summary

Last season was another in a long line of "could have, would have, should have" missed opportunities, as Rex Burkhead saw half the season go by while he was on Injured Reserve with a neck injury. It was the second year in a row that people had high expectations for Burkhead, but he didn't fulfill because of injury. With James White and Sony Michel in the backfield, it's hard to see him as a big factor but he did come up huge with a game-winning touchdown in the AFC Championship game. The Patriots will continue to use runs more and more as Tom Brady ages, especially with the loss of guys like Rob Gronkowski, but barring injury, Burkhead seems like a rotational back, someone who will spell the main backs but not get a ton of run.
