New England Patriots DFS Spin
Rhamondre Stevenson is in line to start in Week 15 against the Colts. When Harris missed Week 10 with a concussion, Stevenson handled 24 touches and totaled 114 yards and two touchdowns. The Colts have played well against the run this season, and Stevenson could be bottled up, even with a full workload. However, Stevenson ranks RB12 in NFL Next Gen's success per attempt metric and fourth in Pro Football Focus' elusive rating. He looks capable of ripping off consistent chunk gains even in a difficult matchup. Stevenson profiles as low-end RB1.

Colts C Ryan Kelly has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Patriots. Kelly spent 10 days on the reserve/COVID list but returned to practice this week. His Week 15 absence is due to a personal matter. With Kelly out, Danny Pinter will start at center for the Colts.
