Rhamondre Stevenson was one of the top running backs (RB2) in fantasy with Damien Harris out in Week 10. Harris couldn't quite clear concussion protocol in time, allowing Stevenson to step in as the New England Patriots' top back.

Damien Harris Injury Update

The latest on Harris is great news for his managers, and bad news for Stevenson.

Harris was upgraded to limited at Tuesday's practice. The Patriots have a quick turnaround with a game on Thursday night, but Harris could clear protocol in time after being questionable ahead of last Sunday's game.

Prior to being knocked out early in Week 9, Harris operated as New England's clear RB1. He averaged 14.8 attempts over the first eight games and produced with 517 yards and 6 TDs.

Stevenson, meanwhile, saw just 6.3 attempts over that span, which makes it hard to consider starting him in Week 11 if Harris is back. Should Harris sit, Stevenson is a no-doubt play after turning 24 total touches (20 rushes plus 4 receptions) into 114 yards from scrimmage and 2 TDs last week.

Whichever player gets the starting nod will be in position to feast against an Atlanta Falcons defense giving up the third-most PPR points per game (28.86) to RBs this season.
