News: 7 days agoStevenson (knee) rushed nine times for 46 yards and didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 36-13 win over Tennessee.
Spin: Stevenson was slightly outplayed by Damien Harris (neck), who had 52 scrimmage yards and a touchdown on 12 touches. The pair of running backs should continue to split carries in Week 13 against the Bills, though it's possible the Patriots will fall behind after playing from ahead for the past few weeks, in which case receiving back Brandon Bolden could carve out a larger role.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Patriots selected Stevenson in the fourth round of April's draft. If you're a fan of elusiveness, tackle breaking and post-contact production, Stevenson is your guy. The Oklahoma product is oversized at 6-foot, 229 pounds, but is still quick and shifty. Granted his sample size is very small (165 carries, 34 targets over 19 career games), but Stevenson's 4.8 YAC and 2.9 forced missed tackle rate during the span are both tops in this year's class. As if that wasn't enough, Stevenson averaged 12.8 receiving yards after the catch (RAC) on his 28 career receptions, which is fourth-best in this class. On the other hand, Stevenson is one of the oldest backs in this class (23) and doesn't have a clear path to short-term touches with Damien Harris, J.J. Taylor and James White in the mix. Stevenson is worth drafting in dynasty only.
