December 11, 2018
Develin scored a two-yard touchdown on his only carry in Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins.
ANALYSIS
The fullback has scored in two straight games and has four TDs over his last four contests, despite logging only six carries in that span. He'll remain a risky TD-dependent fantasy roll of the dice this weekend against the Steelers.

Given his limited touches in the Patriots' offense, Develin's fantasy value remains limited. That said, his versatility and blocking are valuable assets to the ground game. The fullback played in 30 percent of New England's offensive snaps in 2016, en route to logging three receptions for 18 yards.
Given his limited touches in the team's offense, Develin's fantasy value remains limited as the team's starting fullback. That said, his versatility and blocking are valuable assets to the Patriots, and Develin's healthy return to the mix in 2016 should be a boost to the team's ground game this coming season.
Develin will return as the Patriots' starting fullback, but it's a role that carries minimal fantasy value, after he recorded just nine touches during the 2014 regular season.
Develin, who played in all 16 regular season games for the Patriots in 2013, doesn't see enough touches in the team's offense working as a fullback to be much of a fantasy factor.
Will try to stick with the Patriots as a fullback, but that's not really a fantasy-friendly assignment in the team's current offense.
