Damien Harris has a chance to earn a prominent role?

Jeff Howe of The Athletic believes rookie running back Damien Harris has a chance to earn a "prominent role" with the Patriots this season.

Fantasy Impact

Harris' off-season hype continues to grow as Sony Michel has not been on the practice field much this spring. Howe writes that Harris has had a "strong spring", so he's worth taking a flier on in best-ball drafts right now. The New England backfield will once again be a situation to monitor throughout training camp.

Damien Harris goes to Patriots at 87 overall

With the 23rd pick in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected Alabama running back Damien Harris.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots already have Sony Michel (drafted at the end of the first round in 2018) and pass-catching extraordinaire James White in their backfield, but they went out and added Harris anyway. Harris is a patient-but-physical runner who is more of a grinder than a home run threat, but his ball security and pass protection skills should allow him to contribute sooner rather than later for New England.
