Dion Lewis the new face of the Pats' backfield?
RB rattles off 69 rushing yards and 51 receiving yards in Pats' debut

New England Patriots
Fantasy football owners generally know that New England Patriots running backs can be a shaky investment because of the way coach Bill Belichick often rotates them and alters the game plan on a week-by-week basis. But Thursday night's season-opening 28-21 win against the Steelers at least provided some clarity as to how the coaching staff views part of the depth chart. Dion Lewis, who hadn't played in a regular-season game since 2012, is now the clear-cut top option to fill the void created by Shane Vereen's free-agent departure. Vereen played 52.9 percent of the offensive snaps last season as the team's top "pass-catching" back, which is a high total that reflects how the Patriots regularly spread the field and rely on their backs as pass-catchers and in blitz pickup. That was the plan in Thursday's opener, as Lewis played 46 of 61 snaps. Brandon Bolden was sprinkled in at times (14), while James White played one snap, the kneel-down right before the half. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: LeGarrette Blount owners best make sure, if they haven't previously, to secure Dion Lewis after last night's impressive performance. The Patriots' RB situation is always a nightmare for fantasy owners but these two appear to be the two top dogs... for now.

FFToday's Take: This is somewhat a surprising move considering LeGarrette Blount is suspended for Week 1. The Patriots will likely lean on Brandon Bolden, Dion Lewis and James White against the Steelers Thursday night.

HC: James White can play all three downs
Hoping to hold off challengers to replace Vereen

New England Patriots
Pats HC Bill Belichick commented on a few players. On RB James White: "A guy who can really play on all three downs, quality guy, smart, team oriented." (Ben Volin on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Beantown-on-Beantown crime continues. Earlier in the day, ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reported Travaris Cadet was one of five players "building positive momentum" in the early part of training camp. Granted, it's questionable what a recommendation means from Belichick when it comes to his backs, but his mention of "three downs" is notable as White tries to hold off Cadet and Dion Lewis for Shane Vereen's old passing-down/third-down role. White is a worthwhile flier in the later rounds of PPR leagues.
