Rex Burkhead, RB (HOU)

Produces as pass catcher

Burkhead recorded 12 carries for 24 yards in Sunday's 28-25 loss to the Titans. He added three receptions on four targets for 42 yards.

Burkhead accounted for 12 of the Texans' 17 carries, but he was largely bottled up on the ground. On the other hand, he delivered an impressive performance as a pass catcher, highlighted by receptions of 20 and 14 yards. Burkhead emerged as a surprisingly reliable producer down the stretch of the campaign, totaling at least 65 yards in four of his last five contests. The Texans will likely address their backfield in some fashion this offseason, but Burkhead recently signed an extension to be back in the mix for the 2022 season.
