23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
New England Patriots
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Harry, who the Patriots took 32nd overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, finished last season with 33 catches on 57 targets for 309 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games. Though he went into 2020 seemingly primed for an expanded role, that opportunity didn't lead to significant production for the 6-4, 225-pounder. As the second wideout selected in his draft year, Harry will be given the chance to compete for a key role in the Patriots offense this year, but he'll have to outshine free-agent additions Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne and returnee Jakobi Meyers to make a blip on the fantasy radar. Harry's size and ability to make contested catches give him a degree of red-zone upside, but he'll have much to prove in his third season as a pro before he can be viewed as a reliable lineup option.

Harry, who requested a trade earlier this month, is in attendance for New England's training camp, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While it's still possible that the 2019 first-rounder could be moved, the 23-year-old indicated Friday that he'd "absolutely" be happy if he ended up staying with the team, noting that he's been focusing on improving his agility as opposed to "playing big." At this stage, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder presumably slots in behind Nelson Agholor, Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne on the Patriots' wideout depth chart, but a strong summer and/or injuries could lead to a context that would allow Harry to stick around and potentially carve out a key role in the team's offense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
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. 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.
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.
