Rex Burkhead takes most snaps of Bengals backs

Former Husker Rex Burkhead is making a name for himself in Cincinnati. On Sunday, he took more snaps than usual starter Jeremy Hill.

Fantasy football players may want to take note of the emerging Burkhead. He took 38 snaps in Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Ravens, compared to 37 for Jeremy Hill. Burkhead totaled five carries for 29 yards, and had two receptions on as many targets for 19 yards as the Bengals spent most of the game playing catch up.

Several of those snaps came down the stretch as the Bengals attempted a comeback. On Cincinnati's final drive, Burkhead took three consecutive handoffs for 17, 7 and 4 yards, respectively.
