Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 9 vs BAL (4 / 18 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Burkhead played a bit role even with the Patriots playing from behind, but wasn't able to do anything with his limited touches. He remains a 4-8 touch player for now.

2019 Week 3 vs NYJ (11 / 47 / 1 rush, 7 / 6 / 22 / 0 rec)

With James White out on paternity leave and Sony Michel struggling, the backfield was the Rex Burkhead show. While all his catches were pure dumpoffs, he did get some traction on the ground, including a short touchdown. James White will obviously eat into his passing game touches going forward, but if Sony Michel continues to struggle and the Pats keep Damien Harris on ice, Burkhead could easily have a 10 touch floor in most games.

2019 Week 2 vs MIA (5 / 21 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 47 / 0 rec)

Similar to James White, Burkhead's role is going to be highly volatile as long as other RBs and WRs are healthy. He can do it all, but isn't the main option in the running or passing game, so a handful of touches per game will be the norm.

2019 Week 1 vs PIT (8 / 44 / 0 rush, 8 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)

Surprisingly, Rex Burkhead was active, playing a healthy complement of snaps and logging 13 touches after being hurt most of last year. He played in 2 RB sets with James White, as well as some single RB sets in both the pass and run game. It's very clear the Patriots value his versatility, and he'll have a role health permitting.
