Marlon Mack rushed for 126 yards and scored two touchdowns (1 rec) but only 24% of Yahoo fantasy football owners started him, despite being over 50% owned.

85% of Yahoo started James White, who scored two receiving touchdowns for the Patriots. Rookie RB Sony Michel exited with a knee injury and it looks like Kenjon Barner will share the backfield with White in Week 8 against the Bills.
