While there wasn’t necessarily a target date set for Stevenson’s return to the starting lineup, fantasy managers would likely be disappointed if he were unable to get in at least a limited practice at some point this week. Starting off the week as a DNP is both not a good start and not something you need to worry about just yet, so treading lightly with him and playing the situation by ear will be key heading into the semifinals of your league’s fantasy football championship. In the meantime, RB Ezekiel Elliott can be trusted to shoulder the load for the Patriots while Stevenson is out as he’s been doing. Zeke has played just under 90% of snaps over the past two games in his absence and will be the obvious preferred start if Stevenson is ultimately unable to go. If Stevenson plays, Elliott would likely be relegated to low-RB3/high RB4 production.
