Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Damien Harris looked impressive last week against Miami. Aside from the costly fumble, he looked like a top-tier RB and he was producing like one too. He was top-7 in the NFL at the RB position in yards after contact with 68 and he carried a heavy workload for the Patriots. While there's talk from Bill Belichick about Harris being in the dog house after the fumble, Rhamondre Stevenson also fumbled. This is Harris' backfield - from a carry share perspective - and he should have plenty of opportunity in this game that figures to see the Patriots up big early on. Harris can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end RB2.Well, this isn't exactly what James Robinson's fantasy managers wanted to see. Robinson had only five carries in week one as opposed to Carlos Hyde's nine. The good news is that Robinson was targeted seven times and reeled in six of those catches...for three total yards. This offense in Jacksonville does not look like one that we really want to be investing in for fantasy purposes, but especially here in this backfield. Until we see Robinson receive the majority of the workload - like he deserves to - he can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end RB2.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The Patriots probably would be 1-0 if Harris hadn't coughed up a late fumble deep in Dolphins territory, preventing a game-winning field goal try. So, could Harris lose snaps to Stevenson, the rugged rookie who punched in five touchdowns in three preseason games? Er, probably not, since Stevenson fumbled early after a 9-yard catch (though it looked as if he might have been down when the ball came out) and only played five snaps. Harris, on the other hand, played 53% of New England's offensive snaps and had 23 carries for 100 yards. He also caught a couple of passes for 17 yards. Expect Harris to be the lead runner Sunday against a Jets defense that gave up 98 rushing yards to Christian McCaffrey. The Jets also let CMC catch nine balls for 89 yards, so perhaps there's room for the Patriots' designated pass-catching back, James White, to do some damage, too. It's possible Belichick punishes Stevenson for his lost fumble by deactivating him and using 5-6, 185-pound J.J. Taylor instead.I know a few Robinson investors who were nervous that Urban Meyer was going to use Carlos Hyde more than he should, and that's sort of what happened here. Hyde seemed to be Urb's preferred early-down guy, logging nine carries to Robinson's five. Robinson was used in more of a passing-down role. He out-snapped Hyde 47-25. But was that simply because the game script was negative for the Jaguars throughout? Will it be closer to a 50/50 workload split if the Jags are in a close game and don't attempt 51 passes like they did in the blowout loss to the Texans? I now share the concerns of those Robinson investors. I have J-Rob squarely in RB3 territory this week against a tough Denver D. Hyde isn't far behind him, in high-end RB4 territory.

New England should be in full control against the lowly Jets in this one, and that means plenty of Harris. He rushed 23 times in the opener and surprisingly caught two passes in the process. He should be in store for a massive workload in a great matchup - that's all you need for a strong RB2.J-Rob flopped magnificently in Week 1, logging just eight total touches (five carries) while playing behind Carlos Hyde. Yeah, definitely didn't see that one coming. Robinson's got a tough matchup with Denver in Week 2, and given the uncertainty of his workload, he's a mid-range RB3 with a rock-bottom floor. Proceed with caution, but look elsewhere if you can.

Harris could be in the doghouse after a costly fumble in Week 1, but he ran very well other than that one mistake and he should be a low-end RB1 against the Jets D, provided he does not have an early fumble that causes Bill Belichick to move in another direction early in the game.Carlos Hyde actually had more carries (9) in the opener, than Robinson had with (5). Robinson is a flex option in Week 2, but it is going to be hard to trust him if Hyde keeps seeing that much work in the backfield.
