That is lazy analysis from guys who don’t watch the game or don’t play fantasy. Patriots backfield is productive every single year. Why? Because they have one of the top offenses every single year so their backs always score a tonne of touch downs and catch a bunch of passes. You realize both Burkhead/Lewis finished as RB2s last year even though they didn’t start full season right? Both gave you near RB1 production on weekly basis as well towards end of the season and they were both incredibly cheap.
James white is not much of a factor. He comes up big in a few games sure, but the dion lewis role is incredibly valuable. Thats the role Michel plays.
Don’t be the guy that reads hot takes and makes fantasy decisions off of them. That’s a losing recipe. If you want to go with that route, that’s your choice but personally, I want a piece of patriots backfield anywhere I can get them. Especially right now when they’re cheap.
