He received a decent workload in Week 4, and made the most of it by racking up 100 yards on 17 carries. He has far more upside than that and if he can emerge as the Patriots' top back, he could be a borderline RB2. Take a look inside. Of course, the decision about Patriots RBs isn't just about targeting Harris or Michel. Said blocking lanes weren’t around last year, and Michel struggled to efficiently move the ball on the ground. He played a total of 10 snaps, with five of those coming on offense. Historically speaking, Bill Belichick usually keeps his rookie backs on the bench before increasing their workload in Year 2. DRAFT STRATEGY AND RANKINGS TIERS:  Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST, Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST. However, 2019 third-round pick Damien Harris probably won’t just go away.
Right now, Michel is dealing with a foot injury that kept him sidelined for a majority of the offseason after surgery. The interior offensive line should be better with a healthy David Andrews, and Michel could serve as a solid proven commodity at the position.

Damien Harris Fantasy Outlook: Can Harris emerge over Sony Michel in a crowded Patriots backfield? By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 15th 2020, 10:02am EDT. Meanwhile, Miller was picked up late in the offseason by the Patriots after missing all of the '19 campaign after a preseason ACL tear. Damien Harris, meanwhile, recorded just four carries as a rookie. Harris, meanwhile, slipped to the 87th pick and will come off the board in the mid-to-late rounds of most fantasy drafts. With another year of experience in the system, Harris should have a chance to emerge in a bigger role. The 2019 usage, or lack thereof, for Harris was puzzling to say the least. He played through the maladies, but that caused his yards-per-carry average to plummet from 4.5 as a rookie to 3.7 last year. He's the clear-cut handcuff to Sony Michel who's been extremely inefficient. Required fields are marked *. He has two years of experience in this offense, and he’s exactly as good as his blocking. Harris' numbers and lack of playing time may scare some off, especially considering the other members of a deep New England backfield. White's floor should hypothetically be higher than both Harris' and Michel's, so if you need a safe pick, don't be afraid to choose White. He was productive in the red zone, racking up 20 TDs in his final two seasons, and had a career yards-per-carry average of 6.4. Harris had a productive four-year career at the University of Alabama and had once been considered a potential first-round selection. Harris definitely looked the part of an NFL runner during his time at Alabama, and early reports out of camp imply that he’s ready for a bigger role this year. New England’s receivers and tight ends leave a lot to be desired, and there is a very real chance White finishes behind only Julian Edelman in targets. However, that is hardly a kiss of death to his promise for the future. We are working with them to enable your sports experiences again as quickly as possible. During his college days at Alabama, Harris was a consistent back that split carries but always produced. The passing work, meanwhile, will almost assuredly go to White and Burkhead. Michel and Harris should handle all of the early-down work, with Rex Burkhead occasionally coming on as a change-of-pace back. He did recently return to the practice field and the Patriots seem to be confident that he will be ready to play Week 1 vs. the Dolphins, but there are two things worth wondering about that. Damien Harris' fantasy football outlook points to sleeper potential in 2020. .Michel's biggest problem is his consistency. Damien Harris: Harris started the 11-on-11 reps by tearing through a gaping hole on a simple dive play and going untouched for what likely would have been a touchdown.

He didn't have a 100-yard rushing game in '19, and nearly half of his TDs came in one week. The only exception to this rule is Michel himself, but that only happened because Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead suffered serious injuries.
By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Wed, Aug 26th 2020, 6:56am EDT. Michel recorded 247 carries on the season, 180 more than the next-best player on the team (James White, 67). The New England Patriots typically have a crowded backfield, and 2020 should be no exception. Despite his first-round draft pedigree, Sony Michel is not a special talent. Your email address will not be published. White's potential in standard formats is a bit trickier to calculate, but he's two spots behind Michel as the RB38 in ADP right now. Who will come out on top, and what can fantasy football owners expect from this backfield? On the year, he had four carries for 12 yards. However, Harris didn't live up to expectations as a rookie, barely seeing the field, and that's leaving many fantasy football owners wondering if he's a legit sleeper or just a late-round handcuff ahead of the '20 season.

Continuity could matter more than ever in this shortened offseason, and that could give the edge to Michel. It's also balancing how they compare to other role-playing backs on the roster. ESPN+ Fantasy Tools: Play Like an Expert, Even If You Aren’t. Damien Harris Week 6 Outlook - Broncos at Patriots. In 2013, Stevan Ridley finished the season with 178 carries, while LeGarrette Blount had 153 carries. Both questions have many potential answers, and that's what makes Michel a bigger risk than he has been in years past. Even then, White is only interesting in PPR leagues. As previously mentioned, Damien Harris hardly saw the field as a rookie. That's a price that most fantasy owners should be willing to pay, at least in standard formats. While the Patriots typically use one guy for carrying the ball, they haven’t shied away from using two runners when they have two capable backs.
