FantasyPros
Aside from the fumble in week one, Damien Harris has been a revelation for fantasy managers. He's now third in the NFL in Missed Tackles Forced with 12, he's averaging 3.46 Yards After Contact/Attempt, and he's averaging over 4 YPC on 39 rush attempts. He's a phenomenal talent at the RB position and he's proving that he belongs in the conversation with some of the best runners in the game. However, despite those great metrics, Harris is still a risky investment for fantasy managers due to the offense that he plays in and the lack of pass-catching upside. The Patriots have always been known for rotating through their RBs and we could see that happen again here with Rhamondre Stevenson awaiting in the shadows for his opportunity. For the time being though, Harris is a rock-solid RB2 for your fantasy lineups. He comes with a very high floor and we know that the talent is there. He can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 for week three.This Denver Broncos offense could absolutely lead to a top-15 fantasy RB if one of them were to receive the majority of the carries. However, Javonte Williams and Gordon are entrenched in an absolute 50/50 time split. Williams saw 14 opportunities to Gordon's 15 last week and he finished with 74 total yards as compared to Gordon's 69 total yards. As of right now, there's no way we can trust either one of these players in our starting lineups as reliable contributors for week three. While they might see enough work to return RB3 value, there's no telling which option is going to find the end zone and push his way into the top-20. Williams can be viewed as a high-end RB3/FLEX play at best.
