RB Mike Gillislee
DT Malcom Brown
OT Marcus Cannon
OL Cole Croston
WR Chris Hogan
DE Cassius Marsh
CB Eric Rowe

Related players: Dion Lewis, James White, Rex Burkhead

Fantasy Impact:

Gillislee had been losing carries to Lewis over the last few weeks. Lewis owners will have one less back to worry about stealing work against Denver tonight. White should be the main pass-catching back with Burkhead mixing in everywhere.

Scouting Report

Week 12 vs. Miami Dolphins

Patriots backfield touches over the past two games: Dion Lewis-28, Rex Burkhead-22, James White-10. Lewis has also received the most consistent usage with 14 touches in each of those two games, including usage near the end zone, having scored twice. The Dolphins are above-average in aFPA vs. RB rankings, but as a 17-point favorite with the highest implied total of 32 points, this is a good projected game script for Lewis. Consider him an RB2 this week.
