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.

Likely dodges serious injury

Harris (undisclosed) seems to have avoided a major injury, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The rookie third-round pick was helped off the field by New England's medical staff during the second quarter of Thursday's preseason win over the Panthers. Harris had two carries for eight yards prior to his exit, after picking up 103 scrimmage yards on 18 touches the previous week. He's made a nice case for some type of involvement in the Patriots offense, but it isn't quite clear how Harris fits in behind Sony Michel and James White. With Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden also on hand, the Patriots can afford to take a cautious approach with Harris if his injury turns out to be a bit more serious than this early report suggests.
