Stevenson rushed the ball 21 times for 98 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants. He added five receptions for nine yards.
Stevenson was the bright spot of the New England offense and was relied upon heavily to move the ball. As a result, both his carry and yardage total on the ground were his highest marks of the season, a performance highlighted by a long gain of 15 yards and a seven-yard rushing score. Though Stevenson was terribly inefficient as a pass catcher, he was heavily involved as a receiver and he did enough to top 100 total yards for the third consecutive game. The Patriots' offense is likely to continue to run through Stevenson, so he should remain productive despite the overall state of the unit.

Stevenson (back) isn't listed on the Patriots' Week 12 injury report.
Stevenson briefly exited the Patriots' Week 10 loss to the Colts, but returned to the contest and ended up parlaying his 46 (of a possible 69) snaps on offense into 20 carries for 88 yards and three catches on five targets for 14 yards. Following his team's bye week, Stevenson has moved past his back issue and is in line to pace New England's backfield -- which also includes Ezekiel Elliott (13 carries versus Indy) -- this weekend against the Giants.
Stevenson's back injury is not considered serious, and tests came back negative, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson briefly exited Sunday's loss to the Colts but returned to the game and finished with season-highs in carries (20) and rushing yards (88) on his way to 102 total yards. The Patriots have a Week 11 bye for Stevenson to get some rest, but there doesn't appear to be any concern about his availability the following week against the Giants.
Stevenson carried the ball 20 times for 88 yards and caught three of five targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 10-6 loss to the Colts.
The running back has found his stride from a fantasy perspective, topping 80 rushing yards and 100 scrimmage yards in back-to-back games, but Stevenson needed big volume to hit those numbers against DeForest Buckner and the Indy front seven as his longest gain went for only 10 yards. Stevenson will get a week to rest up during the Patriot's bye before facing a very vulnerable Giants squad in Week 12.
Stevenson (back) returned to the field for Sunday's game against the Colts, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.
Earlier in the fourth quarter, Stevenson was deemed questionable to return to the contest after he appeared to injure his lower back when he was upended by a defender on his 16th carry of the day, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. After getting checked out on the sideline by the Patriots' training staff, Stevenson was cleared to return for the team's next possession.
Stevenson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts after exiting with a back injury.
Stevenson carried 16 times for 76 yards and caught two of four targets for nine yards before he appeared to tweak his lower back in the fourth quarter, per Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald. The Patriots aren't yet willing to rule Stevenson out, and he'll continue to be evaluated by team trainers before a decision is made on whether he's fit to check back into the contest during the final quarter. Ezekiel Elliott is the next man up for work after Stevenson.
Stevenson rushed nine times for 87 yards and a touchdown while catching four of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Commanders.
Stevenson came in without a run longer than 15 yards this season, but he broke free for a 64-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to give the Patriots a 14-10 lead. Despite Stevenson's effectiveness, New England curiously went with a pass-heavy approach, as Mac Jones threw the ball 44 times for just 220 yards. Ezekiel Elliott had just 32 scrimmage yards on six carries and five targets, so Stevenson remains New England's primary backfield option heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Colts in Frankfurt.
Stevenson rushed 10 times for 39 yards and secured two of four targets for 11 yards in the Patriots' 31-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.
Stevenson turned in some serviceable production relative to his amount of opportunities, but New England's ground game wasn't too much of a priority as the second half unfolded and the Dolphins began to increase their lead. Stevenson outpaced backfield mate Ezekiel Elliott by three carries, but neither back figures to have a chance for a true game-breaking performance as long as the passing game continues to mostly be inconsistent and the division of labor in the ground attack continues to be deeply split.
Stevenson rushed nine times for 34 yards and caught all six of his targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 29-25 win over the Bills.
Stevenson watched Ezekiel Elliott power in a two-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter, giving New England's top two running backs two touchdowns apiece this season. They have worked in a near-even split on the ground over the past three games, but Stevenson remains the preferred option in passing situations. Stevenson showed off his receiving skills with three catches for 41 yards on New England's final drive, which culminated in Mike Gesicki's game-winning one-yard touchdown with 12 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Up next for the Patriots is rematch with the Dolphins, against whom Stevenson rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown back in Week 2.
