While it’s been a wild 2020, it’s always nice to be reminded that the world is still relatively normal. And what better way to remind us than a random Patriots running back going off? While some of you may have picked up Rex Burkhead after James White was announced as inactive (our thoughts go to the White family during this terrible time), none of you started him, right? If you did we would love to allow you to take a victory lap, as Burkhead lead the Patriots in targets (10), receptions (7), and touchdowns (3) while racking up 98 total yards in New England’s 36-20 win over the Raiders. Is he worth an add, or was this a one-week mirage? Check out the Patriots writeup to find out.
The rest of the league felt more normal, as the Cowboys and Seahawks provided the shootout we all hoped for (even while D.K. Metcalf made a gaffe for the ages), the Jets once again floundered with no help to be found for Sam Darnold, and Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler returned to their past dominance.

Typo on Derrick Henry’s summary:
“He then piled up 69 carries and two touchdowns” this should be yards instead of carries.
Pollard had -5 yards.
Thanks for what you do!
I had J. Wilson as one of my starters along with R. Jones going into Sunday. Not ideal, right? After losing Barkley and then Mostert, I was in a bind. Saw late Saturday night that J. White was out again. I dropped Wilson and snagged Burkhead cuz he was available in my 14-team, PPR league. Wow, did it pay off. Even better, I got revenge on my opponent who’d beaten me in last year’s final. Thanks Rex! I love you man!
Wow, nice work! I had to play Jeff Wilson in a couple deep leagues and was very happy, picked up Burkhead in one but didn’t pull the trigger on starting him. Congrats on the revenge!
How did TY Hilton do? I’m surprised he wasn’t mentioned at all
They just didn’t need to use him much, but he did well on his chances. With injuries now to Parris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr., they are starting to run out of receivers and Rivers may have to stop spreading the ball around so much, so Hilton’s stock could be on the rise. This is still a run-first team though.
