Rex Burkhead worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday, per Field Yates. The veteran back has familiarity with Josh McDaniels from his time in New England.
Fantasy Impact: Burkhead spent the last two years as a Houston Texan and primarily found himself in a third-down back role. Burkhead excels in pass protection and could be a valuable asset next to Jimmy G, who is not the most mobile QB. While a Burkhead signing may be beneficial for the Raiders’ offense as a whole, the player himself is not a fantasy-viable player heading into 2023.
