Damien Harris Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

As expected, Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. RBs Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong are active, but Rhamondre Stevenson should dominate backfield work.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) is doubtful for Monday night’s game against the Cardinals. That means another game of Rhamondre Stevenson as workhorse back. The fantasy football ceiling is high.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) did not practice on Thursday. He seems unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals on Monday night, which would again leave RB Rhamondre Stevenson in an every-down role.

The Patriots did not activate RB J.J. Taylor from the practice squad for tonight's game vs. the Bills. That leaves rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris behind lead back Rhamondre Stevenson, with Damien Harris (thigh) out. Strong and Harris, of course, are only worth considering in 1-game DFS contests.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. That figures to leave RB Rhamondre Stevenson in a workhorse role. He's averaged 15.4 carries and 6.4 targets in the 5 games that Harris missed all or most of this season.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) did not practice on Tuesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said yesterday that Harris is not expected to play against the Bills on Thursday night. That'd leave RB Rhamondre Stevenson in a workhorse role. He checks in as a top-4 RB across scoring formats in the Week 13 Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Patriots RB Damien Harris isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Bills because of the thigh injury that knocked him out of the Thanksgiving night game. His absence would make Rhamondre Stevenson the clear backfield leader. Rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris are the only other RBs on the active roster, with J.J. Taylor a candidate for elevation from the practice squad.

Patriots RB Damien Harris suffered a thigh injury in Thursday night's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. We'll see about his outlook heading into Week 13.

Pats RB Rhamondre Stevenson was upstaged by Damien Harris in a Week 11 win over the Jets. Harris rushed 8 times for 65 yards, topping Stevenson’s 26 yards on 15 attempts. Sunday marked Harris’ first action since Week 8 (illness). But he certainly looked healthy in this one, earning PFF’s 4th highest rushing grade. Stevenson, meanwhile, ranked 2nd to last, hurt by 0 missed tackles forced on the ground and 1.7 YPC. Stevenson still came through in fantasy with 6 grabs for 56 yards, including 1 impressive display of power. It’s worth noting that the Jets represented a tough matchup for RBs. Thursday turns up a Vikings squad that was just smoked by Dallas RBs. On the year, Minnesota ranks mid-pack in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Colts. RB Kevin Harris is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor behind workhorse Rhamondre Stevenson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Patriots RB Damien Harris "unlikely" to play vs. the Colts today due to his illness. It's a bit of a surprise after Harris was able to return to a limited practice on Friday -- but Schefter almost never misses on these early-Sunday reports. Harris' absence would put RB Rhamondre Stevenson back in a workhorse role. He racked up 19 carries and 5 targets when Harris missed Week 6.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting him to play on Sunday, but it’s certainly possible that his volume and/or effectiveness is impacted. Harris is a TD-dependent fantasy play. Rhamondre Stevenson should lead the backfield in touches again.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but we just saw Raiders WR Davante Adams struggle playing through the flu last week. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson continued to work well ahead of Damien Harris in Sunday's win over the Jets. He carried 16 times for 71 yards (4.4 per rush) and caught 7 balls for 72 yards among 8 targets. Stevenson led the team in receiving yards and trailed only WR Jakobi Meyers in targets (12) and receptions (9). Harris ran for just 37 yards on 11 carries (3.4) and caught both of his targets for 15 yards. New England gets the Colts in Week 9, with the bye following.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is off the final injury report for Monday night's game against the Bears. That should mean he's ready to split the carries with Rhamondre Stevenson once again. New England heads into the game as an 8-point favorite, so there should be plenty of rushing work to support both backs in fantasy football lineups. We'll see if the split gets back to what it was before Harris' injury.
