The New England Patriots are preparing for their Saturday night contest against the Indianapolis Colts with several injuries on offense. Quarterback Mac Jones and running backs Damien Harris and Brandon Bolden, as well as a couple of offensive linemen, have popped up on the team's injury report. Patriots halfback Rhamondre Stevenson, who has worked in tandem with Harris, saw his fantasy football stock rise after the recent update on Harris.

The Patriots will have to take on the Colts without starting running back Damien Harris, who was a limited participant all week but was downgraded to out with a hamstring injury. While this hurts New England's overall outlook, it's a boost to Rhamondre Stevenson's fantasy football value.

Stevenson has had a solid rookie year for the Patriots, as he has carried the ball 100 times for 429 yards and three touchdowns. In the last four weeks, Stevenson has recorded at least 20 carries twice and has scored double-digit PPR fantasy points three times since Week 6.

The Patriots rookie will likely lead the backfield alongside Brandon Bolden with Harris sidelined. The Colts have been a stingy defense to running bacs in fantasy football, as they have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing runners.

Still, the Patriots' main objective is to be a run-first team. It wouldn't be surprising to see the team lean on Stevenson with Harris out. That's good news for Rhamondre Stevenson's fantasy football stock heading into Week 15 against the Colts.
