Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Well I agree with what Cotton Jones is saying about everything being relative.   If I drop Rex, who am I gonna pick up?  The best RBs available in my league are the likes of Ivory, CJ Anderson, Smallwood, perhaps Ty Montgomery.   I could make that switch, but then those guys will just be buried on my bench and I don't consider any of them as potential league winners.   So I might as well stick with Rex knowing how that he has a better chance to be that lottery ticket than anyone available on waivers.   Now if I ever get into a jam and need the spot due to byes, injuries, whatever...then yeah, he's likely the first to go.

I'm afraid that this may be the case. Michel is running like Ronald Jones but the coaching staff think they have Saquon Barkley.

^^^^ I concur ^^^^ LMAO

 

Where are the NE Pats fans. What are the sentiments locally in New England about the backfield?

Congratulations.  A 600 year old butter knife worth millions is much better than a digital Swiss Army knife.

I can't tell if this dude is a drop because it's Michel's backfield or a hold because Michel might stink.

Can't tell either. I want to drop but who ever knows with the Pats. I'm deciding to hold for 1-2 more weeks to see what happens.

Unfortunately I think he will be a for sure drop after another game. Getting gordon and edelman back soon and he was already banged up and not getting much run. I think they use Michel in the former Blount role and White as the usual passing down/hurry up back.

The only plus I can think of is that the Pats lost both games they went away from him a bit. Maybe they’ll think of getting him more involved. Other than that, it’s pretty dismal.

I dropped him last week this time for a claim on Brieda and got him for 15 percent fab. I think his knee might be a real issue. But White is best pass catcher and might take over full duties. I saw him run through people to win Superbowl. I'm more interested in White than anyone. With Michel I worry he is a fumble away from doghouse. I think Bellicheck trusts White the most. And Burkhead took hindseat to Michel. Burkhead seems third in pecking order.

Meh. I think he's a hold, pending the size of your league and whats on WW. We still don't really know who the goal line back is and even though he wasn't being used a rusher I would take a few targets a game if that's how it plays out.

Sucks to waste a 5th round pick but at least I don't have to deal with all the uncertainty of holding and then the potential that he may have been a fantasy star later in the season after I dropped him.

He was last weeks drop anyway. 

Rest up, Burkhead! Heal fast!
