Fantasy football Week 4 running back sleepers: Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots
Rhamondre Stevenson has established himself as a solid option in New England’s backfield, seeming to have turned it into a true 50/50 split with Damien Harris. They’ve even split the pass-catching work too, as Stevenson has out-caught Harris by only one catch.
The Patriots may have to rely on a one-dimensional offense this week if Mac Jones is out with an ankle injury. This should mean plenty of Stevenson against the Packers. If you’re looking for volume at the position, Stevenson is all but guaranteed 12-15 plus touches.
Fantasy football Week 4 running back sleepers: Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears
Khalil Herbert is good. If you followed my advice last week and started him as a sleeper, you probably won your matchup. All it took was a David Montgomery injury for Herbert to erupt. In fact, through three weeks, he’s the RB9 on the season in total fantasy points.
Even if Montgomery plays this week, the Bears face another bad run defense in the New York Giants. Herbert should have standalone value after going 20-157-2 last week. Herbert is simply better than Montgomery and should be in your lineup this week.
