It's something to keep an eye on for owners as Harris appeared to have a somewhat serious injury against the Steelers in Week 2. While what he said is good news, if he's unable to go it could mean a huge, potential workload for Stevenson. We'll hopefully know more Wednesday.
Montgomery, who injured his right knee Aug. 26 and surprisingly was active for the season opener Sept. 11, will miss at least four games by going on IR. Montgomery actually scored the team’s lone TD on Sunday as part of their three man RB rotation and played 21 snaps. More passing down snaps should now go to Stevenson and he should continue to be the back to own in an always-muddled Patriot running game.
It's a situation to watch heading into Week 1. If Monty is active and plays, it would most likely cut into Stevenson's fantasy production in the passing game and perhaps two minute drills. Montgomery is a risky play because of his limited role though.
The Pats are pretty deep at RB but those in dynasty leagues were hoping Harris had a path to more work in the near future. With Strong getting picked a couple of round earlier, he makes the cut with the injured Montgomery, and of course the two at the top of the depth chart - Damien Harris and Stevenson.
