N'Keal Harry, the 32nd overall choice this spring, is eligible to return from injured reserve after missing the first eight games. He returned to practice two weeks ago.
The story said Harry is a candidate to take over the X receiver spot for Josh Gordon. The Patriots have until Nov. 4 to activate him to the 53-man roster or he reverts to IR for the remainder of the season.
NE WR Phillip Dorsett - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 at Baltimore Ravens
Phillip Dorsett's 93% snap share in Week 8 was a season-high, and his 0.26 fantasy points per snap continue to pace Patriots wide receivers. Dorsett was targeted six times, catching three passes for 43 yards for a WR59 finish for Week 8, which lowered his season-long fantasy ranking to the WR39. Dorsett also leads Patriots wide recievers with a 12.6 aDOT, which makes him the primary deep threat in this offense.
Dorsett should see primary coverage from Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr, which isn't a reason to fade Dorsett, as Carr is allowing a 50% completion rate on targets into his coverage. Mohamed Sanu's increased integration into the New England offense should only help Dorsett because the combination of Edelman and Sanu should draw enough attention from the Ravens secondary to afford Dorsett plenty of single coverage. Dorsett is a worthy target as a WR3 this week.
