RB - NE
Week 7 Outlook
Damien Harris rushed six times for 19 yards and caught a 14-yard pass in the Patriots' Week 6 loss to the Broncos.
It looked like Harris could receive a big workload with Sony Michel (COVID) and J.J. Taylor both inactive. However, the Patriots fell behind early and Harris was game scripted out. It's always risky trusting a Patriots RB for fantasy purposes, but Harris should remain a high-end RB3 in Week 7 against the 49ers.
Damien Harris ran 17 times for 100 yards in his 2020 debut on Monday night against the Chiefs.
New England had to lean on the run without Cam Newton. Aiding Harris' workload was the placement of Sony Michel (quad) on injured reserve. Harris virtually filled the Michel role, as he wasn't targeted at all in the passing game. Still, he looked productive as a runner and even busted a long run of 41 yards in the second half. He's a high-end FLEX in Week 5 against the Broncos.
The Patriots activated RB Damien Harris off the injured reserve Monday. He is eligible to play Monday’s Week 4 contest against the Chiefs.
Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
New England Patriots running back Damien Harris returned to practice on Wednesday.
The Patriots now have a 21-day window to activate Harris from injured reserve. There is a bit of a logjam at the position with James White returning to the team and J.J. Taylor seeing an extended role in Week 3, so fantasy managers may be forced to continue to wait for Harris' 2020 debut.
The Patriots placed RB Damien Harris (hand) on the injured reserve. He will miss at least three games.
Harris had surgery on his injured pinkie and was placed on the 2020 version of the injured reserve that allows a player to to return after three weeks. The Patriots signed JJ Taylor off the practice squad in a corresponding move. Harris will look to fully recover from a broken pinkie and return at some point during the season. Sony Michel and James White will lead the Patriots’ backfield while Harris is sidelined.
