Hyperbole much?

just giving Tanner a taste of his own medicine. 

However, I do think Harris is the rb to own more than Michel

i remember a REAL plodder getting a TON of action and TDs under Bill just a few short years ago... 

Sure but there was no Sony Michel at the time. I don't know what to make of this backfield.

Damien Harris rushed 14 times for 80 yards in the Patriots' second preseason game Saturday.

Harris was tackled at the half-yard line just short of a touchdown. He also caught all four of his targets for 23 yards, totaling 103 yards on the evening. Harris didn't play in the preseason opener against the Lions due to a minor hand issue, but he got the "start" Saturday against the Titans with Sony Michel and James White resting. Harris was an offseason hype piece, but that hype appeared to die down for a few weeks while he was sidelined. This performance should restart it, though Michel still appears to have a good grip on No. 1 duties.

I watched this game just now. Well, the first half of it anyway, and my takeaway is that yes, Harris looked pretty good hitting the holes and grinding out the yards. However, the real takeaway was how well the Oline blocked and disguised the run /pass plays that ultimately left the holes open for Harris to hit at full speed. They looked the part of road graders and Wynn specifically looked awesome. He had some great blocks, but that one that allowed Bolden to score was sick.

In any case, Harris looks like he has the blount role locked up. He most definitely does not look like a feature back to me.

I was most impressed by his hands. A couple of those throws weren’t on target and he caught them easily. He looks like he could threaten Michel and White’s workload.

Damien Harris has "reinforced" the Patriots' belief that he's simply "a really great football player" with his performance in preseason camp.

Camp reports have been a little mixed, but Harris looked good in his preseason debut last week. ESPN's Mike Reiss said Harris "displayed a hard-charging running style and the ability to catch the ball as well", two things the Patriots' player of personnel believed in when they drafted Harris in the third-round one year after spending a first on Sony Michel. Harris' path to volume is tricky with Michel and James White ahead on the depth chart, but he's capable of filling an early-down or third-down role if either were to miss time, making him a worthwhile double-digit round investement in fantasy.

I was feeling when he was drafted that he would take over the burkhead role.  Nothing so far has changed that. He'll have some quality fantasy weeks, but when they happen only Bill knows.

no work with the 1s, all preseson. 

glowing reports coming from Pats camp regarding Sony Michel, he looks terrific

Less pass, more run , as a whole, for the Pats offense in 2019. 

Harris won't sniff 400 yards rushing. it's the Sony Michel show.

as per usual Dr Dan is wrong, just like  nearly everything else he speaks about. Watch Harris arrive on the back of milk cartons come sept 8th.

This may be true but where is he going to be Nov 8th? Dec 8th?.  With how BB is with RB at some point Harris is going to get his shot unfortunately it's hard to predict with how BB treats his backs.  I love Michel's talent but do you honestly think he can hold up the entire season being the main back?

Everything I can find online suggest Michel is fine.

Michel got 10 carries in I'm guessing what was 1/2 a game.  If they're willing to give him 10 touches in the pre-season, I'm guessing they feel pretty good about his knee at this point.  Harris is a really nice insurance policy and may get a handful of touches here and there.  I'm not opposed to getting him on the cheap in case the knee starts acting up.

Damien Harris handled two carries for eight yards before exiting with an undisclosed injury in New England's third preseason game against the Panthers.

The team didn't report on Harris' injury once he exited in the midst of his only drive, so perhaps it's much ado about nothing. The fact remains the rookie failed to see the field while Tom Brady was under center, and even more telling, didn't handle a single goal-line carry behind Sony Michel and FB James Develin. There's a role in place for Harris, but Michel's outstanding (and healthy) showing on 10 carries likely buries the rookie on the depth chart until an injury occurs in front of him. He's a stash-and-wait prospect as the current RB45 off fantasy boards.

I feel this board suffers from SNT Syndrome with Harris. Burkhead is clearly still the #2 back in NE. Harris is a decent dynasty prospect, but even if Michel is hurt Harris is no lotto ticket IMO. As posted, very telling that he didn't sniff the field with Brady behind center. Heck, depending on his ST involvement, he could even be a game day inactive more often than not.

The Athletic's Nick Underhill reports Damien Harris is "fine" after leaving Thursday's third preseason game early with an injury.

Harris' role come Week 1 remains unclear. Sony Michel has had a terrific summer by most accounts, and James White has his normal pass-game role to fill. That leaves Harris as a mere in-case-of-emergency back who will likely get a couple touches here and there when everyone is healthy.

Took him in the last round. Why not. I hang on for a few weeks unless something good comes on the wire.

Yeah, he was my last round pick in every league I could. It's worth a look.

I read an article about the Demaryius Thomas cut and potential resigning that he Patriots were going to bring him back and put Harry or Harris on IR. Harry ended up getting the designation but that had me concerned about Harris's health? Thought he was back at practice and ok, but who knows with the Patriots. Any news on his injury?
