  Patriots | Damien Harris listed as questionable    Fri Oct 30, 04:14 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Patriots running game was getting on track at times against the 49ers, but Harris coming into this game banged up plus the recent offensive woes makes him only a desperation play this week.

  Patriots | Damien Harris held in check    Sun Oct 18, 05:03 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris rushed for 19 yards on six carries against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also caught one pass for 14 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Harris dominated the work in the backfield before the Patriots unscheduled bye, but he just blended into the mix against the underrated Broncos run defense. He'll need to pop with some big plays or scores on our benches if we'll consider him again, and he's not an essential hold.

  Patriots | Sony Michel headed to IR    Mon Oct 5, 04:43 PM

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (quad) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list on Monday, Oct. 5.

Footballguys view: The move to IR means Michel has to miss at least three weeks before he's eligible to return. The Patriots move forward with James White and Rex Burkhead. Plus, the Patriots activated Damien Harris (hand) off the Reserve/Injured list to replace Michel on the roster.

  Patriots | Damien Harris lands on IR    Mon Sep 7, 05:49 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 7. RB J.J. Taylor was signed from the practice squad to replace Harris on the roster.

Footballguys view: Harris has talent, and Fantasy GMs are excited to see him get a larger workload, but something always gets in the way. He was looking like a potential starter in camp before this finger surgery. Now, Harris will have to wait until Week 4 at the earliest to return to the field. The Patriots move forward with Sony Michel and James White as their top two backs.

  Patriots | Damien Harris still on the mend    Mon Sep 7, 01:36 PM

  Patriots | Damien Harris has surgery    Thu Sep 3, 09:22 AM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (finger) recently had surgery on his pinkie finger, which will keep him out a few weeks.

Footballguys view: Ah, just like a soap opera, these are the Days of The Patriots Backfield. Harris has talent and could be a starter in this league but he's banged up and buried on the depth chart. The Patriots will once again (always?) use a combination of three or four running backs (Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead) in 2020.

  Patriots | Damien Harris still receiving bulk of No. 1 reps    Thu Aug 27, 06:56 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris continued to receive the majority of first-team reps even with RB Sony Michel back at practice Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: Harris has a good chance to open the season as the lead back, but the ceiling is low for that role with James White and Rex Burkhead getting passing down work and Cam Newton getting a big share of the short yardage rushing touchdowns.

  Patriots | Jarrett Stidham out with teammates    Sun Jul 19, 01:15 PM

New England Patriots QBs Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer have been working out with teammates this past week. WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Gunner Olszewski, RB Damien Harris and TE Dalton Keene were among the players participating in the workouts.

Footballguys view: Cam Newton was working out with Patriots free agent signing Damiere Byrd, who was his teammate in Carolina, and last week worked out with Sanu and 2019 first-round pick N'keal Harry. Stidham has a longer tenure with the team, and his familiarity with the offense and roster will be his best bet to win the starting job over Newton.

  Patriots | Bigger role for Damien Harris?    Sat Jul 4, 09:17 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris has a 'great future' with the team, according to running backs coach Ivan Fears, and Mike Reiss of ESPN.com believes Harris 'is a good bet to take a significant leap in 2020.'

Footballguys view: Harris should have a larger role this year, but how much will that role be worth? The addition of Cam Newton brightens the outlook of this offense, but Harris is just a late round flier at best. It's not crazy to take him ahead of Sony Michel if Michel opens camp on the PUP list after offseason foot surgery.

  Patriots | Damien Harris may be busy at camp    Sun Jun 14, 01:21 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris could receive a lot of snaps during the early part of training camp because RB Sony Michel (foot) will be recovering from foot surgery.

Footballguys view: Bill Belichick might have drafted Harris in the third round last year knowing the Michel's ability to play at a high level was winding down. Harris is a solid all-around back, but probably won't pull away from Rex Burkhead if Michel's return is delayed. The Patriots offense doesn't seem like a good place to mine for fantasy gold this year.

  Patriots | High marks for Damien Harris    Fri Apr 10, 11:08 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris 'did everything right behind the scenes' in his rookie season, according to running backs coach Ivan Fears.

Footballguys view: We still believe that Harris can make it as a starter in the league. The Patriots use a RBBC that Harris will try to be a part of in 2020. We'll keep holding onto his stock in dynasty formats.

  Patriots | Damien Harris nicked up    Wed Aug 14, 01:36 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (hand, wrist) has been dealing with a minor hand or wrist injury.

Footballguys view: Harris has had a 'meh' kind of training camp according to some reports. The rookie from Alabama has a well-rounded skill set and can be a factor on all three downs. However, he's not pushing Sony Michel for the starting job as some had predicted before the start of training camp.

  Patriots | Quiet camp for Damien Harris    Mon Aug 12, 04:09 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris has not seen many reps during training camp, according to the Boston Herald's Kevin Duffy, who adds it is 'pretty clear' Sony Michel is the 'No. 1 RB on the team right now.'

Footballguys view: Harris is a talented rookie and has a good all-around skill set. Michel is more dynamic as a runner and reports indicate he's the main man for the Patriots. Harris will have to work as a backup and wait for his opportunity if Michel is healthy.
