The Patriots wasted no time letting you know they have zero issues with Harris, who racked up 17 carries in his first game of the season. It should be reminded that Sony Michel hadn't had more than 11 carries in a game to this point. It should also be reminded that Harris racked up 100 yards on the ground, something Michel has done once over his last 20 games. The Broncos have allowed just one rushing touchdown on 88 carries this year and have been a funnel defense for the most part. The 0.59 PPR points per opportunity they've allowed to running backs is the lowest mark in the league, as no other team has allowed less than 0.64 PPR points per opportunity. The Broncos and the 49ers are the only two teams in the league who've allowed less than 0.68 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, highlighting just how bad this matchup is. The good news is that the Broncos aren't blowing anybody out, which is allowing opponents to stack up touches. The 88 carries through four games ranks as the 15th-most in football. We can't forget that they've lost two defensive tackles to IR this season, too. It's not a smash spot for someone like Harris, who's exclusively a two-down back, but he should net enough touches to get into low-end RB3 territory. White went right back to his heavy usage in his first game back, piling up 40 snaps to Burkhead's 27 snaps. Unfortunately, the 1.09 yards per target the Broncos have allowed through the air is the second-lowest mark in the league. This matchup requires volume, which is something we can't guarantee for White or Burkhead. If you're playing one it's White, though he should be considered a low-upside RB3 for this game. Burkhead falls into the RB4 territory after losing his pass routes to White.

James White totals one touch in loss to 49ers

James White caught his only target for a gain of three as the Patriots fell to the 49ers 33-6 in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

White was a non-factor even with the Patriots in comeback mode all game. New England's offense is broken ahead of a Week 8 matchup with the Bills. White should remain on fantasy benches for that one.
