Faulk appeared in eight of the team’s 16 regular-season games. He was inactive for eight games. He finished with 145 yards on 51 carries (2.8 avg.), playing primarily on third down, or passing downs (he had 260 yards receiving). He is coming off a season-high 51-yard rushing performance vs. the Jags, but based on the way the Pats have used him, he isn’t suited for a full-time role. However, Bill Belichick said he’s one of the team’s most productive players on a per-play basis.
