Coach Bill Belichick expects to see marked progress from Harry in the wideout's second season with the team, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. It's notable that none of the Patriots' 10 selections in last week's draft were wide receivers and it's clear that the team is looking to see more production from Harry -- last year's first-rounder -- as well as veteran Mohamed Sanu, who was slowed by an ankle issue in 2019 after arriving in a trade with the Falcons. Given how much hype there is surrounding this year's rookie pass catchers, Harry could be flying a little under the fantasy radar after a quiet initial campaign of his own. If the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is able to continue to build on the rapport he established with quarterback Jarrett Stidham last year, an uptick in production is a likely outcome for Harry, who is in the mix for plenty of snaps this season, along with Sanu and top pass-catching option Julian Edelman.
Harry is a candidate to see an uptick in production this coming season, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. As a rookie last year, the wideout caught 12 passes (on 24 targets) for 105 yards and two TDs in seven regular-season games. An ankle injury the No. 32 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft suffered last August landed him on IR, and Harry therefore didn't make his regular-season debut with the Patriots until mid-November. Still, there's a reason the team made the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Arizona State product the second wideout taken last year. When healthy, Harry's size and ability to make contested catches give him upside in the red zone. Though he won't be catching passes from Tom Brady this coming season, Harry will no doubt look to build on the rapport he built with quarterback Jarrett Stidham before getting hurt. Unless the Patriots add further depth at wide receiver, Harry's path to playing time is fairly clear, given that he's clearly one of the team's top three options at the position, the other two being veteran pass catchers Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu (ankle).
Harry logged 12 catches (on 24 targets) for 105 yards and two TDs in seven games during the 2019 regular season. Harry, who the Patriots selected 32nd overall in last April's NFL Draft, had his rookie season stalled when he began the campaign on IR due to an ankle injury. As a result, his impact in the team's passing game was modest, but down the road, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder has what it takes to develop into a dangerous red-zone weapon for the team, and his role is bound to expand in 2020. Who Harry will be catching passes from then is to be determined, however, with QB Tom Brady eligible for free agency this offseason.
Harry caught three of his seven targets for 29 yards and rushed for nine yards on one carry in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Dolphins. The No. 32 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft -- who began the season on IR with an ankle injury -- finishes his rookie campaign with 12 catches (on 24 targets) for 105 yards and two TDs in seven games. Heading into the playoffs, Harry will serve as the Patriots' No. 3 wide receiver behind Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu. Down the road, the 22-year-old should continue to grow into a larger role in the New England offense and with his 6-4, 225-pound frame, Harry has the potential to develop into a dangerous red-zone weapon for the team.
Harry was on the field for 37 of a possible 73 snaps on offense in Saturday's 24-17 win over the Bills. In the process, Harry -- who was out-snapped by Mohamed Sanu (70) and Julian Edelman (52) -- carried twice for 18 yards and caught two of his three targets for 21 yards. Though volume could be an issue for Harry in Week 17 and the playoffs, the rookie is at least getting more consistently involved in the team's attack and at times has displayed flashes of his potential to develop into a useful red-zone weapon for the Patriots.
