2019 Fantasy Outlook
Given the parade of talented backs that passed through Alabama the last few years, Harris' consistent production is impressive - he topped 1,000 scrimmage yards each of the last three seasons despite maxing out at 172 touches. He doesn't possess any one standout ability in the backfield, but instead profiles as the same kind of jack-of-all-trades that Rex Burkhead was intended to be for the Patriots. In addition to good vision and balance to find yards between the tackles and in traffic, Harris is an effective outlet receiver who gets extra points for his solid instincts as a pass protector. What he lacks is speed or a surprising burst that would allow him to escape NFL defenders on a regular basis. His spot on the depth chart in a talented New England backfield won't do him any favors to begin the season, but the rookie's snaps and touches should increase once he proves to Tom Brady and the coaching staff that he can be trusted to do his job in almost any situation.

Harris (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
Harris was limited at practice all week, and he'll sit out a fourth straight game, although only two were attributed to this injury. The Patriots' backfield remains deep with Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden.
