OL Isaiah Wynn questionable to return
Look for Damien Harris and Brandon Bolden to take over most of the carries, although the Patriots might start throwing the ball more if they keep falling behind against the Dolphins. Miami is up 17-7 as of this writing and the Patriots haven’t shown any signs of being able to slow the Dolphins down. New England is still fighting for seeding in the postseason.
Stevenson has been a crucial part of New England’s running back rotation and has become a viable flex play even with Harris healthy. This is a tough blow for managers who are still in meaningful fantasy action this week if they started Stevenson, especially with the game script trending against the Patriots running the ball.
