1.) Rhamondre Stevenson

It seems as if Stevenson has been a disappointment this season in terms of fantasy football. After having a strong 2022 campaign, he has been part of a Patriots’ offense that up until last week against the Buffalo Bills could not get anything going.

Stevenson being on this list could be a surprise, seeing as how the last three weeks he has had no more than 10 carries in a game. The Patriots are traveling to Miami to take on the Dolphins, going up against a defense who is giving up on average 112 rushing yards a game.

New England may want to stick with the run game to keep the Miami offense off the field. In their last meeting, New England only had 88 rushing yards against the Dolphins. Stevenson was able to get 15 carries in their last matchup, but only managed to get 50 yards while adding on a touchdown. Even though he could be a risky option, this could be a high risk-high reward move.
