Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
The New England backfield just got a lot messier. The Patriots activated Sony Michel ahead of their Week 10 game against the Texans, the team that has given up the most total rushing yards (1,507). This should be a smash spot for whoever leads the team in rushing attempts. I have to lean with Harris given his usage in recent weeks, but it wouldn't be surprising to see New England pivot back to Michel, either. The running back who leads the Patriots in carries will finish as an RB2/FLEX option; it's just a question of whether it'll be Harris or Michel. Behind those two, White seems to have been phased out of his offense, and he shouldn't be on your fantasy radar. Rex Burkhead gets enough goal-line work to be a viable FLEX option, but he's touchdown-dependent, and Michel's return could limit his red-zone usage.

The Texans are 31st against fantasy running backs, Harris should be a RB2 with upside on the road in a terrific matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What makes Harris' production on the ground that much more special is the fact that he's done it while seeing eight-man defensive fronts on a league-high 43.5 percent of his carries. No other running back in the NFL is over 34.0 percent. Teams know it's coming and they still haven't been able to stop it. Running backs have averaged 30.8 PPR points per game against the Texans, which ranks as the third-highest number in the league. It certainly helps that they've averaged a ridiculous 27.9 carries per game against them. Not touches per game... carries. They've faced more carries than 19 teams have seen touches to running backs. When you combine that with the 5.53 yards per carry they've allowed (just one other team is above 4.88 yards per carry), you get a massive 22.8 fantasy points per game on the ground alone. That's more than 15 teams allow to the running back position as a whole... in PPR formats. Think about that. They've allowed 204.9 fantasy points on the ground, while there's been just one other team (Lions) who's allowed more than 168.8 fantasy points on the ground. All in all, the Texans have faced a league-high 31.9 running back touches per game. They've now allowed 1,715 total yards to running backs, which is 95 more than any other team. Harris has earned the right to be started as a solid RB2, though his lack of passing game usage makes him gamescript dependent and presents volatility.Over the last four games, Elliott looks like a shell of his former self. It's not all his fault, of course, as he's lost his starting quarterback and starting left tackle on the offensive line. In those four games, he's combined for 208 yards on 61 carries (3.41 yards per carry) and 12 receptions for 65 yards. He hasn't scored in that time, either, leaving him as the RB31 over that span, behind guys like Jerick McKinnon and J.D. McKissic. To be fair, his last two games were among the worst you can have as a running back against the Eagles and Steelers, but he's no longer the must-start RB1 you drafted. If you're looking for touchdowns against the Vikings, you might not find them. On the year, they're tied for the league's lowest touchdown output to running backs (5). While their pass defense has been bad, they've been a stout unit up front from an efficiency standpoint, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity. The two running backs who were able to total more than 75 yards on the ground were Derrick Henry and Jonathan Taylor, who both totaled 26 carries. As a whole, they've allowed 135.2 total yards per game to running backs, which isn't great when you see that Pollard has been getting 35 percent of the touches over the last four weeks (and has been more efficient). That may've had something to do with Elliott's hamstring, but it brings on some additional risk. Elliott should be considered a middling RB2 who needs to find his way into the end zone, but I'm one who believes the bye week came at the perfect time for him. Pollard has at least eight touches in each of the last five games, so he can be played as an RB4 in a pinch, though it is a tough matchup.
