Welcome back to practice, RB Rex Burkhead. Burkhead (neck) is eligible to play on Dec. 2 vs. Vikings. This means Burkhead takes the Patriots’ second and final designated to return IR spot. (ESPN - Mike Reiss)
FFToday's Take:Good news for Burkhead, who has struggled to stay healthy as a Patriot. Owners of Sony Michel and James White have a right to be less excited, as both players have repeatedly shown they can deliver RB1 production when there isn't a third chef in the kitchen. Assuming Burkhead returns, he is a decent bet to ding the value of Michel slightly and steal enough work from White to make him more of an RB2. Burkhead is easily worth a stash if owners can find the room.
