Rhamondre Stevenson OUT Week 15; Zeke to reprise RB1 Role
2 months ago

The New England Patriots have ruled out Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) for Week 15.

With the arrival of first week of the fantasy playoffs here, fantasy managers will once again be without their stud running back Rhamondre Stevenson. He is still dealing with the high ankle sprain that he suffered a couple of weeks ago. Stevenson has yet to return to the practice field and it is unclear whether or not he will even be able to return this season.

 

For those fantasy that inserted Ezekiel Elliot into your fantasy lineups last week, you were not disappointed. Elliot turned back the clock last week and provided a performance that surely assisted in sending fantasy teams to the playoffs. The running back was eating all game long to the tune of 22 carries for 68 yards and seven receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.

 

As long as Stevenson is out, Elliot must be inserted into your fantasy lineups . Not only is Elliot the workhorse running the ball, but he is an asset in the passing game. The veteran will be needed in the receiving game this week so that the Patriots can try to keep up with the Chiefs and also try to control the clock with Elliot’s rushing abilities. Elliot could be in line for another Top 10 performance this week and has the shady Broncos run defense coming up next week.
