Phil Perry: Go get Damien Harris on your fantasy team

In his Friday mailbag, Pat Perry of NBC Sports Boston was asked if Damien Harris would get an opportunity to play with the Patriots having issues running the ball:

"...don't tell anyone this," Perry wrote. "But I think you should go get Damien Harris in your fantasy league and stash him until he's back. He's eligible to return Week 4. Whenever he hits the field, it'd make sense for the Patriots to see what they have."

"Sony Michel hasn't given them anything a replacement back couldn't. There's a replacement on the roster who looked like more than that this summer. Harris caught the ball smoothly and hit holes decisively."

Fantasy Impact: 

Damien Harris is eligible to return from IR in Week 4. The Patriots deploy a handful of running backs weekly, but if Harris can show out in his return, goal line and early-down carries could be his. In a season with many prominent offensive players getting hurt, Harris could be a solid bye week fill-in or RB2.
