2020 Fantasy Outlook
The opportunity was there last year for Harry, but a trip to IR with an ankle injury saw him get off to a late start, and the Patriots offense has never been an easy one for rookies to pick up. In the end, Harry had only 24 targets for a paltry 8.8 YPC and 4.4 YPT. The good news is he'll almost certainly have a bigger role this year. With Tom Brady gone, the team's quarterback situation is evolving, but Harry won't have as steep a hill to climb to earn the trust of either Cam Newton or Jarrett Stidham. At 6-4, 225, Harry is massive, and while he has only average speed for his size (4.53 40), he's strong, physical and athletic. As the team's first-round pick in 2019, Harry will likely be next in line after Julian Edelman to see regular opportunities, though veteran holdover Mohamed Sanu is also still around. And Edelman will turn 34 in May, so this could be a passing-of-the-torch year, with Harry taking over as the top dog for the franchise. But Harry first has to show he's a quality NFL player, something that never happened in Year 1. Read Past Outlooks

Opportunity knocks in 2020
WRNew England Patriots
April 28, 2020
Coach Bill Belichick expects to see marked progress from Harry in the wideout's second season with the team, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
ANALYSIS
It's notable that none of the Patriots' 10 selections in last week's draft were wide receivers and it's clear that the team is looking to see more production from Harry -- last year's first-rounder -- as well as veteran Mohamed Sanu, who was slowed by an ankle issue in 2019 after arriving in a trade with the Falcons. Given how much hype there is surrounding this year's rookie pass catchers, Harry could be flying a little under the fantasy radar after a quiet initial campaign of his own. If the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is able to continue to build on the rapport he established with quarterback Jarrett Stidham last year, an uptick in production is a likely outcome for Harry, who is in the mix for plenty of snaps this season, along with Sanu and top pass-catching option Julian Edelman.

2020 Training Camp Preview: New England Patriots
15 days ago
The Patriots' already notable offseason was capped by the signing of QB Cam Newton and news that six players plan to opt out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID-19 concerns.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The final pick of the first round, Harry landed in a good spot. The Tom Brady-led Patriots lost Rob Gronkowski to retirement, and their top wideout, Julian Edelman, is 33 years old with a long history of injuries. The team signed what's left of Demaryius Thomas this offseason, and there's always the hope Josh Gordon can once and for all kick his demons and handle a consistent role, but targets are there for the taking, especially for a player drafted in the first round. At 6-2, 228, Harry has good speed (4.53 40) relative to his weight, but he isn't as athletic or explosive as some of the receivers taken in the second round. Unfortunately, the rookie's rookie campaign will be stalled by his placement on IR due to an ankle injury. Harry is a candidate, however, to be brought back later in the season.
