[Rex] Burkhead juked linebacker Zach Cunningham with some fancy footwork on his final offensive touch in a short crossing route. He then ran past Cunningham and sliced through the Texans’ defense for the 22-yard score. Burkhead looked wide open on the play, but it wasn’t as if the Texans didn’t have anyone in coverage. Burkhead just handily beat Cunningham. It’s still entirely possible Gillislee takes over LeGarrette Blount’s old early-down running back role, but if you’re playing fantasy football, there should be serious concern that Burkhead will drastically cut into the former Buffalo Bills running back’s snaps. Burkhead is a versatile weapon who showed he can pick up tough yards on the ground and through the air Saturday night.Source: Patriots-Texans Film Review: How Does Rex Burkhead Fit Into Offense? | New England Patriots | NESN.com
