Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Rex Burkhead played on 71 percent of the snaps in Week 1.

Huddle Up: He played 30 more snaps than Dameon Pierce, which could mean the rookie is having trouble with the playbook or blitz pickups. That also means Burkhead should be owned universally, especially in PPR leagues, as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3.

Houston Texans RB Rex Burkhead rushed 16 time for 47 yards and caught all six of his targets for 32 yards in a 23-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17.

Huddle Up: Burkhead was unable to replicate his monster outing against the Chargers, but he did log 22 total touches. He has managed at least 15 touches in four straight games, and the heavy workload gives him a useful floor.

Houston Texans RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.

Huddle Up: Burkhead received most of the work at running back with David Johnson sidelined and had a lot of success against the Chargers. He should see plenty of touches next week against the San Francisco 49ers and can be a flex option in most leagues.

Houston Texans RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 41 yards on 16 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15. He also caught one pass for six yards during the game.
SOURCE: Not available
Huddle Up: Burkhead was considered questionable during the week because of injuries, but he received most of the work in the running game. He likely will receive a similar workload next week but is only a possible flex option in deeper standard leagues.
