Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Harris will begin the year on injured reserve after having hand surgery, putting a dent in what was shaping up to potentially be a breakout season. There's still some long-term appeal with the young running back, but there's no reason to draft him as anything other than a deep bench stash with the hope of a breakout mid-year.Peterson signed with the Lions shortly after being released by the Redskins. Despite his advancing age, Peterson is coming up off two productive seasons with Washington and likely still has a little gas left in the tank. His role is entirely unclear, however, as both Kerryon Johnson and D'Andre Swift will factor in, and Ty Johnson and Bo Scarbrough are still on the roster. Peterson will likely be usable on occasion in fantasy but there's little reason to draft him in anything other than a bench piece.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's hard to believe Damien Harris out-carried Josh Jacobs in 2018 with the Crimson Tide. In his first season with the Patriots he was out-gained by Tom Brady, Brandon Bolden, Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry. It might seem bizarre but Harris isn't a special teams guy whereas Rex Burkhead a vital role there. Essentially, Harris needs an injury or a surprise RB release to gain a role this season. At this stage that seems unlikely enough to suggest Damien Harris shouldn't be on any redraft rosters, there's such a low chance he provides any payoff, especially given he starts the season on IR.After his surprising release from Washington, A.D. will now be on the hunt for a new role. He may still reappear in D.C. though a return to Jay Gruden in Jacksonville or an entirely new team are all possible. Don't drop him just yet.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Harris has been gaining some buzz recently, but until the Pats move on from Sony Michel, I don't see him receiving the amount of touches necessary for fantasy production. This is going to be an incredibly crowded backfield and it might just be one that I'm fine letting someone else in my league try to navigate. If Michel starts the season healthy, Harris could even end up back as a healthy scratch on this roster...AP has now signed with the Detroit Lions, which indicates that the team plans on utilizing a committee approach with this backfield. AP wouldn't have signed with the team if he wasn't going to be guaranteed touches, so this muddies the water for fantasy football. AP will see his 8-10 carries a game, but it's unlikely that you ever feel comfortable starting him this season. If you are forced into playing him this season, close your eyes and pray that he falls into the end zone. At this point, I may be comfortable letting someone else in my league try to navigate this backfield.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The 2019 usage, or lack thereof, for Harris was puzzling to say the least. When you draft a running back in the third round, you typically use him in some sort of role. Of the 22 running backs who've been drafted in the third round over the last seven years, Harris' four touches were the fewest. He's the clear-cut handcuff to Sony Michel who's been extremely inefficient. If that continues in 2020, we could see the Patriots activate Harris (who doesn't contribute on special teams) and use him as their early-down back.It's remarkable what Peterson's been able to do at 33 and 34 years old, compiling nearly 2,000 rushing yards over the last two seasons, but now 35 years old and in a new offense with tons of competition, it's hard to see him making a difference in fantasy football.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Recently had surgery on his pinky, and his Week 1 is now in question. Slightly down. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
*Update* The talk of training camp. Flashing as runner AND receiver. Makes this offense much more dynamic than Sony if he keeps this up. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
As of now, Harris can only be considered as a handcuff to Sony Michel who was largely inconsistent and inefficient in 2019. With reports of Harris standing out in practice, it wouldn't shock me if he took Michel's early-down role if last year's issues continue into 2020. He doesn't need to be drafted but is definitely someone to keep an eye on early in the season.Peterson once again finds himself in a starting role, albeit on what will likely be an underwhelming Washington offense. Expect rookie Antonio Gibson to see a decent amount of work, especially in the passing game but Peterson will still have value in standard leagues. He should also see the bulk of the goal-line carries.
