Fantasy Impact: Stevenson had told reporters earlier in camp he was expecting to agree to an extension with New England. The deal includes $17 million of guaranteed money. He figures to remain the lead back in what could be a completely new offense in New England under offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. The big question for his fantasy value will be how much of the third down work Antonio Gibson commands.

Fantasy Impact: Thornton, who was touted for his explosiveness heading into the NFL, has yet to show he can round out his game. According to Dakota Randall of Pro Football Network, he flashed early in OTAs but slowed down, struggling on Day 1 of minicamp before missing Day 2. Thornton is entering Year 3, and with the Patriots having a deep rotation of players trying to earn a roster spot this year, he could be facing a further potential slide.
