Draft note
by John Paulsen
From Week 4 to Week 14, when Harris was relatively healthy and serving as the Patriots’ lead ball-carrier, he was the No. 27 fantasy back with 5.04 yards per carry. He had the No. 3 PFF run grade in 2020. Beat writer Mike Reiss says that Harris is the “surefire No. 1” option in the Patriots backfield, which should lead to around 14-15 touches with a (very?) small role in the passing game. James White, Rhamondre Stevenson and J.J. Taylor will vie for touches behind Harris.

NE RB Damien Harris - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Saints

Damien Harris is still the back getting the most work in the Patriots backfield, but as we saw in Week 2, New England isn't afraid to get James White involved in the red zone, vulturing touchdowns from Harris. That said, there is still plenty of work for Harris. He had 16 carries to White's five in Week 2, though the touches were much closer (17-11 edge for Harris). Harris is still a fine RB2 or flex option, though the Saints are currently allowing the third-fewest rushing yards through the first two weeks of the season, and that was against Aaron Jones and Christian McCaffrey.
