When you put on the film, Damien Harris really impresses. While he only had 137 carries last year, he averaged exactly 5 YPC and PFF absolutely loved him. Unfortunately, the injuries are certainly something to still be concerned about and the offensive structure around him automatically puts a cap on his fantasy output. With Cam Newton at QB, Harris has little to no chance of finding the end zone with any sort of regularity. Of his 137 carries last season, Harris only had 6 in the Red Zone, while Newton had 42. Harris can be a fine depth piece for a roster, but fantasy managers that are hoping he turns into something more than a RB3 might just find themselves disappointed yet again this season.Oh man, what an absolute mess of a situation here in Houston right now. Deshaun Watson seems intent on never playing another down for this team, which means that we're going to see one of Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, or Jeff Driskel at QB in 2021. That's automatically a significant downgrade for this offense and it carries a trickle effect to every position group. On top of that, the RB room is extremely crowded and none of the names are really ones that should get you excited. At the time of writing, the Texans have Johnson, Mark Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, Rex Burkhead, Dontrell Hilliard, Buddy Howell, and Scottie Phillips all on this depth chart. If Johnson was essentially the lone back again this season, he might be worth drafting in fantasy drafts. However, with his age and the state of the offense around him, it's probably best to let someone else try to make it work with the veteran RB. My Very Early Projection: 163-669-4 rushing & 45-383-1 receiving.

What's the best-case scenario for Harris? Didn't we see it last year when Sony Michel went down with an injury? Not only is Michel healthy, but the Patriots also decided to draft Rhamondre Stevenson in the fourth round of this year's draft, which just adds another body to the mix. I like Harris as a player, but as someone who topped 16 touches just twice last year with little competition and no role in the passing game, you should aim higher for your RB2/3 option.I think most people would admit that Johnson looked much better than expected in 2020, totaling over 1,000 total yards and eight touchdowns in just 12 games. That's the good news. The bad news is that the Texans are a team that legitimately might lose every game in 2021, as they've been stripped down and look like a roster of replacements. They've also added Mark Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, and Rex Burkhead to the backfield, which presents all sorts of issues. If Deshaun Watson were going to play, we'd dig into this backfield a little deeper, but with Watson out of the picture for the foreseeable future, this is not a backfield you want to be associated with.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
NFL reporter Mike Reiss says, "I see Damien Harris as the RB1, and it's pretty decisive." What has that ever meant in the Patriots offense? Patriots RB coach has been hyping Damien Harris for TWO YEARS now. He has a chance to move up a tier, but I can't see myself drafting him before the 8th round. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Harris showed flashes of fantasy relevance when he started last year, but New England is an offense in flux and Harris is a low-end RB3.Johnson's value is going to depend on whether DeShaun Watson can play this year, Johnson figures to be a low-end flex option on an offense that may have Tyrod Taylor behind center.

Line upgrades + skill upgrades + Cam return signal more explosive, power-based O -- team reportedly interested in adding RB competition though.Phillip Lindsay + Ingram + No QB + Gross overall offense = no, thanks.
