The Patriots have downgraded RB Rex Burkhead (foot) to out for Monday night's game against the Jets. That can only help the touch outlook for James White and Sony Michel. Each is worth RB2 consideration for Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. It's the same boat Burkhead was in last week before missing the Giants game. He shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Giants. Rookie RB Damien Harris is a healthy scratch again, so RBs Sony Michel and James White should be busy with the Pats 16.5-point home favorites.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is not expected to play against the Giants tonight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's a tad surprising after Burkhead put in a full practice on Wednesday. We're expecting him back for Week 7. Sony Michel and James White will again dominate backfield work for New England in a mouth-watering spot as big home favorites.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He was a full-go in Wednesday's practice, so there's a good chance he returns for this one. Still, Burkhead would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups after getting just 1 touch last time out.

Injury Predictor

Burkhead topped his previous high for touches by just 3 in his 1st Patriots season, but he did so in 6 fewer games than he played the year before. A rib injury cost him 4 weeks in the middle of 2017, and then a knee sprain claimed the final 2 regular-season games plus New England's 1st playoff contest. Burkhead had otherwise enjoyed a clean record -- on very limited touches -- since an August 2014 MCL sprain. He re-signed with the Patriots this offseason and will fight for touches in a perennially crowded backfield. Sony Michel figures to challenge the red-zone role that accounted for all 8 of Burkhead's TDs in 2017.
