Mike Tagliere

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.The Steelers have already said that if James Conner is healthy, they want him to be that "lead back" that Mike Tomlin has always leaned on. They also said they believe Benny Snell can be that guy if something were to happen to Conner. That doesn't mean McFarland will be chopped liver, but it does mean he's not going to be a 10-plus touch running back without injury. I've compared McFarland to Chris Thompson, which would make sense based on the Steelers' comments on the power running backs. If he gets 6-10 touches per week, he has enough explosion on a per-play basis to make an impact at times, but nothing you want to rely on consistently.
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.Anthony McFarland Jr lands in a strange spot. The Steelers backfield is still technically James Conner's, but Benny Snell, Jaylen Samuels and Kerrith Whyte all remain in the picture and that makes things very messy for their new recruit. McFarland would be a sensational RB2 on limited carries but will struggle for consistent work in his first season, especially given his issues with pass protection.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Anthony McFarland has shown the juice to be a spark plug for an offense that could develop into a full-time starter down the road. With James Conner and Jaylen Samuels ahead of him, it's unlikely that we see McFarland have much fantasy football relevancy in 2020, but he could be a great plug-and-play option if James Conner were to go down with an injury again. If I'm the Conner owner in Dynasty, I'm making sure I don't leave my draft without McFarland.
