Rex Burkhead found himself as the primary running back for the Texans after Week 10 last season finishing as the #20 fantasy back from Week 11 to Week 18. At age 31, Burkhead will be among those battling for carries in the Texans backfield in 2022. He'll join veteran Marlon Mack as well as rookie Dameon Pierce. Pierce will have to earn his playing time as it could be mid-season before he has the opportunity to supplant both veteran backs. Burkhead has routinely been more of a complementary back throughout his career, contributing as a versatile option, especially as a short-yardage receiver out of the backfield. His 122 carries last year was a career high. At best he continues where he left off and keeps the rookie Pierce at bay while winning the snaps battle with Mack for the lion's share of the team's carries. In reality he will likely split duties in the early going before losing carries to the upstart rookie as the season wears on.
