Bill Belichick notes this morning that Damien Harris is in a different spot this year compared to last year. Can compete for the top role now. Kind of a rare admission from Belichick. Indication of how Harris is viewed in the building.
Damien Harris' stock has been slowly rising this summer, as he went from RB32 off boards in Underdog drafts in June to his recent spot at RB29 with an ADP of 85.2. Bill Belichick rarely gives much away and it's tough to take what he says too seriously, but Harris is in a great spot to lead the Patriots in carries in 2021 with a fantasy RB2 potential. The 24-year old is 4for4's 30th ranked RB in half-PPR formats.
