Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Mostert out, McKinnon gets the nod as the next man up again. He'll be involved as a receiver out of the backfield, but based on his usage over the past couple of weeks, we can't expect him to see the majority of the carries. McKinnon can be viewed as a low-upside RB2 this week.Brown was hobbled last week and just missed on connecting on a big play that would've made his fantasy output look much different. While he hurt fantasy managers that took the shot on him last week, he's still worth rolling back into your lineup this week. Assuming that he's fully healthy, Brown should be viewed as a solid WR3 with top-20 upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What happened last week after Raheem Mostert went down with his high-ankle sprain? McKinnon played the most snaps (23) but it was the rookie Hasty who out-carried him 9 to 6. Kyle Shanahan said after the game that Hasty had fresh legs, so they wanted to give him a run. What's the plan for this week with Mostert out? Well, that's up in the air, as Jeff Wilson might be able to come back from his calf injury. For now, we'll plan on Hasty and McKinnon forming a 1-2 punch. The good news is that the Patriots opponents have run the ball 48.3 percent of the time, which is the fourth-highest mark in the league. The bad news is that their opponents have run a league-low 58.4 plays per game, so it's amounted 27.4 running back touches per game (23.0 carries, 4.4 receptions). While their secondary has struggled a bit with all the losses this offseason, their front seven has done a great job holding running backs in check, as the 0.71 PPR points per opportunity ranks as the third-lowest in the league. It's limited opposing running backs, as just one running back has totaled more than 12.1 PPR points against them, and that was Chris Carson who racked up 108 total yards and a touchdown on 20 touches, something we can't anticipate for either of these backs. I thought Hasty looked good against the Rams last week and did nothing to receive less work, while McKinnon has averaged just 3.14 yards per carry since he was forced into a bigger role. My guess is that Hasty winds up with more carries while McKinnon gets most of the passing down work, but we've never seen this combination before. For now, I'd treat Hasty as a risk/reward RB3/flex-type play who has a lower floor than most. McKinnon should offer RB3 numbers and is likely safer, though he doesn't offer the upside that Hasty does. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots are 5th against fantasy running backs, but McKinnon should regain his flex position with Raheem Mostert out with a high ankle sprain.
