Patriots' Damien Harris: Limited playing time as a rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris logged four carries for 12 yards in two games this past season.

Per Jeff Howe of the Athletic, the 2019 third-rounder missed three games with a hamstring injury and was a healthy scratch 12 times. Harris' rookie season essentially amounted to a redshirt year and with Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden all under contract with the Patriots in 2020, the Alabama product doesn't have a clear path to abundant carries in his second season as a pro. That said, it's always possible that roster churn and/or future injuries could change that context, but for now Harris still profiles as a depth option in the Patriots' backfield.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Harris was limited at practice all week, and he'll sit out a fourth straight game, although only two were attributed to this injury. The Patriots' backfield remains deep with Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Questionable vs. Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Harris was out for last week's win over the Eagles due to the hamstring issue and could miss his second straight game. The 22-year-old may be inactive regardless of his health given that the rest of the team's running backs are currently healthy.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Harris sat out Sunday's win over the Eagles after being added to the Patriots' injury report two days ahead of the game. Even if the rookie running back is deemed healthy enough to play this weekend, he could still sit out against the Cowboys as a healthy inactive.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Unavailable Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Harris was originally considered questionable after suffering the injury at Friday's practice, but the team apparently didn't like what it saw Saturday. The 22-year-old was a candidate to be inactive if healthy, so his absence is unlikely to impact the offense.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Added to injury report Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Harris was a candidate to be healthy scratch Sunday in any case, but given that he wasn't on the team's injury report earlier in the week, it appears he injured his hamstring injury during Friday's practice. Heading into Week 11, the rookie is off the fantasy radar, so long as the Patriots' backfield trio of Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead remains healthy enough to play.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Returns to inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

The return of Rex Burkhead (foot) pushes the rookie back to the Patriots' Week 8 inactive list. In the event that Sony Michel suffers an injury down the road, Harris could factor in on early downs, but for now the 2019 third-rounder is off the fantasy radar.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Records four carries Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris logged four carries for 12 yards in Monday night's 33-0 win over the Jets.

Harris' Monday night backfield appearance didn't come until late in the blowout, but he did start off with a nice 13-yard run on his first NFL regular-season carry. The 2018 third-rounder isn't a fantasy lineup option for now, but if lead back Sony Michel misses time at any point this season, Harris would likely move into a meaningful role in the Patriots offense.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Making second career appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is listed as active Monday against the Jets, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Suiting up for just the second time this season, Harris may be a part of the game plan in the absence of Rex Burkhead (foot). That said, Sony Michel, James White and Brandon Bolden are all available, too, so Harris may be contained to special-team duty, as he was in his other appearance Week 3.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Sidelined again Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Giants.

In the event that Sony Michel suffers an injury in the coming weeks, Harris could factor in on early downs for the Patriots. In Week 6, however, the team will continue to roll with a backfield comprised of Michel, James White and Brandon Bolden.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington.

Harris won't suit up Sunday, even with Rex Burkhead (foot) out. In the event that Sony Michel suffers an injury down the road, Harris could factor in on early downs, but in Week 5 the Patriots will roll with a backfield comprised of Michel, James White and Brandon Bolden.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With James White (personal) back this week, the rookie is once again the odd man out on the Patriots' backfield. At this point, it will probably take an injury to either Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead or White for Harris to factor into the New England ground game.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Limited to special teams work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris was on the field for five special teams snaps in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jets.

With James White (personal) inactive Sunday, Harris suited up for his first regular-season game, but he didn't see any snaps on offense. With White on track to play Week 4, Harris could rejoin the inactive ranks this coming weekend. At this point, it will probably take an injury to either Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead or White for Harris to factor into the New England attack.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Suits up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

With James White unavailable Sunday, Harris will suit up for his first regular-season game as a pro. The rookie could see some touches working behind lead back Sony Michel, but we'd expect Rex Burkhead to be the player who absorbs the bulk of White's usual change-of-pace duties.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Harris is a scratch for this one, even with fellow running back/special teams ace Brandon Bolden out with a hamstring issue. At this point, it will probably take an injury to either Sony Michel, James White or Rex Burkhead for Harris to factor into the New England offense.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Harris wasn't on the Patriots' Week 1 injury report, so this goes down as a healthy scratch for the rookie back. The team's backfield against Pittsburgh will thus be comprised of Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and special teams ace Brandon Bolden.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

Harris, who didn't practice either Sunday or Monday, was dinged up in this past Thursday's preseason win over the Panthers, but his return to work Tuesday solidifies previous reports that his injury was minor. Harris is part of a deep New England backfield that also features starter Sony Michel, change-of-pace ace James White and the versatile Rex Burkhead. Even in that crowded context, Harris has earned a place on the fantasy sleeper radar, given the 2019 third-rounder's between-the-tackles running ability, as well as Michel's history of knee woes.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Likely dodges serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (undisclosed) seems to have avoided a major injury, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.

The rookie third-round pick was helped off the field by New England's medical staff during the second quarter of Thursday's preseason win over the Panthers. Harris had two carries for eight yards prior to his exit, after picking up 103 scrimmage yards on 18 touches the previous week. He's made a nice case for some type of involvement in the Patriots offense, but it isn't quite clear how Harris fits in behind Sony Michel and James White. With Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden also on hand, the Patriots can afford to take a cautious approach with Harris if his injury turns out to be a bit more serious than this early report suggests.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Forced out of Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris, who needed assistance from the Patriots' medical staff to get off the field after suffering an unspecified injury with about five minutes left in the first half, did not return to Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers, Erik Scalavino of the team's official site reports.

Prior to his exit from the contest, Harris logged two carries for eight yards on his five snaps on offense. At this stage, it remains to be seen if the rookie's injury is anything that might threaten his Week 1 availability. When healthy, Harris is projected to work behind starter Sony Michel, but even in that context, the 2019 third-rounder has been on the sleeper radar, given his between-the-tackles running ability, as well as Michel's history of knee woes.

Patriots' Damien Harris: Tears off two long runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris accounted for 80 yards on 14 rushes, while catching all four of his targets for 23 yards during Saturday's 22-17 win against Tennessee.

The stock rises on Harris, as the third-round rookie out of Alabama looked strong in his preseason debut with 5.8 yards per carry. Interestingly enough, he also demonstrated an aspect of his game that was largely untapped in college -- pass-catching ability. He gained eight or more yards on five of his 18 touches, while gashing the Tennessee defense for gains 17 and 20 yards on two of his final eight carries. As a potential No. 2 rushing option behind Sony Michel, Harris carries tremendous upside as a deployable red-zone threat, especially given that New England has finished fourth or better in red-zone trips in 12 of the past 13 seasons.
