|If you're not interested in Damien Harris for fantasy, may I offer you...Damien Harris who doesn't score touchdowns?
Stevenson had his moments as a rookie in 2021, but he primarily served as a clone to Damien Harris, even matching Harris' 4.6 yards per carry on the ground. Both players finished with fewer than 20 catches, and with only five scores on the season, Stevenson just wasn't much of a weekly contributor outside of deep non-PPR formats.
Heading into his second season, Stevenson should pretty much be looked at as a handcuff for Harris. This scenario certainly has some value as he'd become a borderline RB1 without Harris on the field, but Stevenson just doesn't have enough standalone value to be enticing for fantasy this season.

Seeing reps in "James White role"

FFToday's Take: This has been discussed off and on throughout the offseason, especially since Stevenson himself admitted this summer that his primary focus was improving in the passing game. White recently retired due to a hip injury, so his usual staffs are up for grabs. Ty Montgomery appears to have the lead in the race to replace White, but Stevenson would likely be a relatively strong RB2 option if he could beat him out. It appears New England is willing to give him that opportunity over the final two weeks of the preseason.
|RB James White calls it a career|
Spent eight seasons with the Patriots

|James White. First class.
One of the most respected players in the NFL calls it a career after a significant hip injury. (James White on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: White spent eight seasons in the NFL, all with the Patriots. He injured his hip last September which derailed his season and started 2022 training camp on the PUP list. His pass-receiving chops made him a valuable asset in PPR leagues. As usual, the Patriots have a number of options at the running back position including Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, Pierre Strong Jr. and veteran Ty Montomery. Harris and Stevenson are the most fantasy relevant for now.
