The New England Patriots will have a key player of their offense in the lineup on Sunday, as running back Rhamondre Stevenson reportedly is expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Stevenson had been dealing with an illness. 

Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott should form a solid one-two punch in the New England backfield.

Stevenson is listed as questionable for the Patriots’ Week 1 game, but he is expected to suit up.

Rhamondre Stevenson OVER 3.5 receptions

Stevenson has been an elite pass catcher for the Patriots, and I expect the team to lean on him in that department against a great Eagles defensive line. 

Philly has Jordan Davis, Fletcher Cox, Jalen Carter, Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat up front which should limit the running lanes for the Pats. The best way to get Stevenson the ball in space may be in the passing game. 

Last season, Stevenson had 88 targets and racked up 69 catches for the Patriots, turning those into 421 yards and a score.
