Fantasy Football analysis: Patriots RB Damien Harris

Harris continues to have a role in this backfield, splitting time with Rhamondre Stevenson. He has 24 carries for 119 yards and a touchdown through two weeks, while also have four catches. This suggests Harris is a key part of the game plan for New England, even if there’s some concern about Stevenson getting hot and taking over the lion’s share of the carries at some point. For now, Harris is going to get significant work.
