Another Patriots RB fantasy mess

The New England Patriots released their depth chart this week and as one might have guessed, their running back situation is one to avoid in fantasy football again this season.

Many speculated that Dion Lewis was going to get cut this year, despite the fact that the Patriots are 17-0 with him in their lineup over the past couple of seasons.

Now? He’s atop the depth chart. The Patriots listed Lewis and James White as the two starters at running back. Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden are listed as running with the two’s.

What’s funny is that the guy they brought in to start, Mike Gillislee, is sidelined with a hamstring injury. So, when he’s healthy who the hell knows what this depth chart will look like. And it’s the Patriots so this chart could be completely flipped by Week 2.

So yeah, avoid this at all costs unless it’s the last two rounds of your draft.
