New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead rushed five times for 20 yards and a score and caught all four of his targets for a team-high 77 receiving yards Saturday, Dec. 21, against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Burkhead has now scored touchdowns in back-to-back weeks. It was his most impressive fantasy performance of the season, though RB Sony Michel led the team in carries and rushing yards. Burkhead remains boom or bust in the often unpredictable Patriots backfield.
