2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After missing the first month of the season with a knee injury, Burkhead spent most of his time on special teams coverage for the Bengals, getting just 33 offensive snaps compared to 113 on special teams. He's a capable pass-catching back, grabbing seven receptions on 10 targets for 49 yards, but as long as Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard are around, Burkhead is going to be limited to mop-up and change-of-pace duty.

2014

Burkhead is buried on the Bengals depth chart behind Giovani Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Cedric Peerman and rookie Jeremy Hill.

2013

Burkhead, a rookie out of Nebraska, will mostly be a reserve running back for the Bengals.
