Player Outlook
Harris was expected to compete for a reserve role in New England's backfield this season, but he did not make New England's initial 53-man roster. The Patriots have Rhamondre Stevenson as the lead running back and only Ezekiel Elliott backing him on the initial 53-man roster, so it's possible Harris could rejoin the roster before Week 1. Even if he does, Harris has an uphill battle for playing time, especially since he's a physical back like Elliott. He shouldn't get drafted but could carry appeal during the season if he's in line for meaningful playing time.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Records 16 carries this past season

    Harris finished the 2023 season with 16 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown and three catches for 58 yards in four games with the Patriots. Harris spent the bulk of his second year as a pro on the Patriots' practice squad, but he ended up working in a complementary role for the team down the stretch behind Ezekiel Elliott due to Rhamondre Stevenson being sidelined by an ankle injury. The 2022 sixth-rounder remains under contract with New England through the 2024 campaign, per Evan Lazar of the team's official site, and Harris thus will have an opportunity to carve out a role next season as an early-down power back option behind Stevenson. Whether such a gig translates into fantasy relevance hinges on where Harris lands on the depth chart in the wake of the Patriots' looming offseason moves in free agency and the draft.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Makes impact as receiver

    Harris carried the ball twice for 15 yards and caught both his targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Bills. The 2022 sixth-round pick helped set up a Bailey Zappe rushing TD in the second quarter with a 48-yard catch and run that got the Patriots into the red zone. Harris has seen his first significant stretch of NFL action over the last three games while Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) has been sidelined, and Sunday's catches were the first of his career. Over those three games, Harris has picked up 115 scrimmage yards and a rushing TD on 15 touches while backing up Ezekiel Elliott, a role he should fill again in Week 18 against the Jets.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Signed to active roster

    The Patriots signed Harris to their active roster from their practice squad Tuesday. Harris will join New England's active roster after spending the entire season on its practice squad. In his only appearance this season, the 23-year-old carried the ball four times for 25 yards and a touchdown during last week's loss to the Chiefs, and he could continue to serve as the primary backup to Ezekiel Elliott if Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) misses more time.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Back to practice squad

    Harris reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday. With Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) out again this past week, Harris saw action on seven offensive snaps behind Ezekiel Elliott and rushed four times for 25 yards and one touchdown in mop-up duty versus Kansas City.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Scores first TD of 2023

    Harris carried the ball four times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Kansas City. Seeing his first touches of the season while Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) remained sidelined, Harris plowed up the middle and broke free for a 16-yard TD in the fourth quarter for the final points of the game. His 25 rushing yards also tied Ezekiel Elliott for the team lead, as the Patriots' running game couldn't get much going until it was too late. Stevenson could return in Week 16, but if he misses a third straight game, Harris' performance Sunday might earn him a bigger role against a vulnerable Broncos run defense.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Up from practice squad

    Harris has been elevated to the Patriots' active roster from the practice squad ahead of Thursday night's game against the Steelers, Evan Lazar of the team's official site reports. With Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) out Thursday, Harris provides the Patriots with added Week 14 backfield depth behind Ezekiel Elliott, who is expected to be featured against Pittsburgh in Stevenson's absence. Harris appeared in five games with the Patriots last season but has yet to make his regular-season debut with the team in 2023.

  • Kevin Harris: Let go by Patriots

    The Patriots have waived Harris, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Ahead of training camp, the 2022 sixth-rounder had been looking to secure a depth role behind top back Rhamondre Stevenson, but now that Ezekiel Elliott is also in the Patriots' backfield mix, Harris is the odd man out. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, he could resurface on the team's practice squad.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Garners eight carries

    Harris rushed eight times for 10 yards in Thursday night's 20-9 loss to the Texans in the preseason opener. Harris saw fellow tailback Pierre Strong start the game before coming in during New England's second offensive drive. While Strong totaled 33 yards on his nine touches, Harris barely averaged over one yard per carry and was not targeted. The two are competing for backup work behind Rhamondre Stevenson and both should get more chances in next Saturday's preseason game against Green Bay.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Logs 18 carries in rookie season

    Harris finished the 2022 season with 18 carries for 52 yards and a TD in five games. As a rookie, the 2022 sixth-rounder saw limited action, with Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris handling the bulk of the Patriots' backfield duties. With Damien Harris slated to become a free agent this offseason, there could be carries available next season for Kevin Harris, as well as 2022 fourth-rounder Pierre Strong. Though Kevin Harris is no threat to overtake Stevenson as the team's top early-down option, the 5-foot-10, 225-pounder, who played his college ball at South Carolina, could potentially yield occasional fantasy utility in 2023, in the event that Stevenson misses time for any reason.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: One carry versus Bengals

    Harris carried once for three yards in Saturday's 22-18 loss to the Bengals. Despite Damien Harris (thigh) still being sidelined, Kevin Harris logged just four snaps in the contest, while working behind Rhamondre Stevenson (51 snaps), per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. Ahead of New England's final two regular-season contests, Kevin Harris is off the fantasy radar as long as Stevenson and/or Damien Harris are available.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Rushes for 19 yards Sunday

    Harris carried five times for 19 yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Raiders while logging seven of a possible 65 snaps on offense, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. With Damien Harris (thigh) out and Rhamondre Stevenson (43 snaps, 19 carries, two catches) working through an ankle issue, Pierre Strong (four carries, three catches) and Kevin Harris worked in complementary roles Sunday. Looking ahead, neither Strong nor Kevin Harris profile as high-percentage fantasy options down the stretch as long as Stevenson and/or Damien Harris are available.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Helps fill in for Stevenson

    Harris rushed eight times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 27-13 win over the Cardinals on Monday night. Harris ended up pacing the Patriots in rush attempts due to Rhamondre Stevenson's early exit with an ankle injury that first cropped up in the first quarter and was later aggravated shortly before halftime. Harris recorded a 14-yard touchdown run, the first of his career, during Stevenson's initial stint on the sideline, but he finished with 44 fewer rush yards than backfield mate Pierre Strong despite logging three more carries. If Stevenson's injury lingers into a Week 15 road battle against the Raiders and Damien Harris (thigh) remains sidelined as well, Kevin Harris figures to retain a complementary role, at minimum, in that game.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Doesn't play Monday

    Harris was among the Patriots' inactives for Monday night's loss to the Bears, Evan Lazar of the team's official site reports. With Damien Harris back in the mix, the 2022 sixth-rounder was the odd man out in the Patriots' Week 7 backfield, which was led by Rhamondre Stevenson, with Pierre Strong in reserve. Kevin Harris is thus off the fantasy radar until injuries hit the team's RB corps.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Logs three carries in season debut

    Harris carried three times for five yards in Sunday's 38-15 win over the Browns. The 2022 sixth-rounder suited up Sunday with Damien Harris (hamstring) out, logging 12 snaps behind lead back Rhamondre Stevenson (60 snaps), while fellow rookie Pierre Strong (one carry) saw action on four snaps. For now, Kevin Harris is off the fantasy radar, but if at any point the Patriots are without both Stevenson and Damien Harris, he could be pressed into an expanded early-down role.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Gets call-up from practice squad

    The Patriots signed Harris off their practice squad Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The sixth-round rookie out of South Carolina was unable to secure a spot on the Patriots' Week 1 roster, but New England thought enough of the 5-foot-10, 225-pound back to include him on its practice squad once he cleared waivers. With Ty Montgomery (knee) having since been moved to injured reserve and with Damien Harris (hamstring) looking unlikely to suit up Sunday in Cleveland, Kevin Harris looks like he could get the chance to make his NFL debut Week 6. Though Rhamondre Stevenson is capable of playing on both early downs and passing downs and is projected to take on a heavier role than usual this weekend, Harris could make for an ideal power-running complement when Stevenson needs a breather.

  • Kevin Harris: Joins Pats' practice squad

    New England signed Harris to its practice squad Wednesday, Mike Dussault of the Patriots' official site reports. J.J. Taylor was also re-signed to the practice squad after being cut a day earlier, giving the Patriots added backfield depth to turn to behind Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, Ty Montgomery and Pierre Strong, who are on the team's initial 53-man roster. Harris -- a 2022 sixth-round pick -- profiles a player that New England can groom on the practice squad.

  • Kevin Harris: Let go by New England

    The Patriots will waive Harris on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Though the 2022 sixth-round pick isn't in line to be included on the Patriots' initial 53-man roster, Harris is a candidate to land on the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Rushes for 54 yards Friday

    Harris carried four times for 54 yards (including a 33-yard run) and caught one pass for seven yards in Friday's preseason finale against the Raiders. As long as Damien Harris (who sat out the contest with an unspecified injury) and Rhamondre Stevenson remain in the mix, Kevin Harris doesn't have a path to steady carries. However, the 2022 sixth-rounder's chances of securing a roster spot may have increased Friday, with Ty Montgomery having suffered an ankle injury. Also in the depth mix in the Patriots' backfield are fourth-rounder Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Scores TD in preseason opener

    Harris rushed six times for nine yards and a touchdown while catching one of two targets for minus-2 yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason loss to the Giants. It would have been a forgettable NFL debut for the rookie sixth-round pick out of South Carolina if not for his three-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Harris notably saw the field before fellow rookie Pierre Strong but after J.J. Taylor. Even with James White having announced his retirement, Harris is still locked in a battle with Taylor and Strong to make the roster behind Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson in a deep New England backfield. He'll look to bolster his case in the second preseason game, Aug. 19 against the Panthers.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: New England selects in sixth round

    The Patriots selected Harris in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 183rd overall. If his health cooperates, Harris will be a steal for the Patriots. He's a 220-pound back out of South Carolina, where as a true sophomore he ran for 1,138 yards and 15 touchdowns in just 10 games while averaging 6.2 yards per carry. He suffered a back injury that slowed him in 2021, when he ran for just 669 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games (4.4 YPC), but the 2020 version of Harris is a no-doubt NFL running back and he can get back there with a little luck. Unfortunately for him, the Patriots' running back depth chart is at least four deep ahead of him with Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, James White and fourth-round 2022 pick Pierre Strong already present.
