N’Keal Harry returns to Patriots practice for first time since IR designation

Patriots WR N’Keal Harry is finally back at practice for the Patriots after landing on injured reserve in September. We break down the fantasy football implications and his timeline to return.

The New England Patriots are back at practice following some time off after Week 6 Thursday Night Football, and they have a forgotten face back in the mix. Wide reciever N’Keal Harry, the team’s first round pick this past April, was back at practice on Tuesday for the first time since being placed on injured reserve in early September.

The return designation allows teams to return two players placed on injured reserve during the regular season. Harry is eligible to practice this week and next week, and can play in Week 9.

Fantasy football analysis, Patriots WR N’Keal Harry

The Patriots are already in a solid position at wide receiver, with Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon leading the way. Phillip Dorsett is working back from a hamstring injury, and Jakobi Meyers impressed in place of Dorsett last Thursday. The team’s lack of a playmaker at tight end means more opportunities at wide receiver, but Harry has an uphill climb for fantasy relevance in 2019.

Harry is a great keeper and dynasty option, but he’d be no more than a deep stash in single season leagues.
