Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
At this point, none of the Patriots RBs are really worth looking at from a fantasy perspective. With the way this offense is looking right now, scoring opportunities simply are not there. White should be seeing way more targets out of the backfield than what he's been getting, which makes him a risky FLEX play at best in Full PPR leagues. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
This backfield is a mess, we already knew that. It's only going to get worse if Michel is activated off the IR/COVID list this week, though I'd suspect one of him or Harris would be inactive. But one touch for White last week? What are they doing? White has had a semi-consistent role in the offense, which is why Week 7 was such a surprise. The Bills opponents have run the ball 43.5 percent of the time, which ranks as the 12th-highest mark, but we know Newton will steal some of those carries. The 113.9 fantasy points they've allowed on the ground ranks as the fifth-most in the league, while the 49.1 PPR points they've allowed through the air ranks as the sixth-fewest in the league. Expect the Patriots to try and run the ball quite a bit in this game, as three of the last four opponents the Bills have totaled at least 97 yards on the ground against them with running backs alone. For now, we'll assume that Michel remains out and play Harris as a low-end RB3 option who should net at least a dozen carries. We have to shake off White's big fat zero last week, as he's had a stable role in this offense for a while, but the matchup is not ideal. Consider him a low-end RB3/flex option this week. As for Burkhead, he's had a bigger role than most realize, totaling at least 47 yards in 4-of-6 games, but he's still not someone you should trust more than an emergency RB4 with everyone healthy. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots offense has been awful the last 3 weeks, White is a low-upside flex option.
