Patriots RB Damien Harris (chest, ankle) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Ravens. Banged up and in a bad matchup, Harris is a weak fantasy play.

Patriots RB Damien Harris is "hopeful to play" against the Ravens tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll be "closely monitored" in pre-game workouts to make sure there are no setbacks with his ankle or chest injuries. Harris remains a risky play with a low floor and low ceiling in a bad matchup. Avoid him if you can.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (chest) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Ravens. Between the late kickoff, the injury and the tough matchup, Harris is better off on fantasy benches this week.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He’s the best bet for carries in the backfield in what figures to be a run-heavy game plan in shoddy weather conditions.

The Patriots expect RB Damien Harris (ankle) to play against the Bills today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's officially questionable, so we'll confirm his status with the inactives come out, but you should have Harris available as a fantasy option.

The Broncos-Patriots game has been moved to Week 6, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England was originally scheduled for a Week 6 bye. Denver was slated to play Miami in Week 6, but that game will now be rescheduled. Pull all Broncos and Patriots players from your Week 5 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos and Patriots are still slated to play on Monday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England had a 4th positive test on Sunday morning, but that evidently won't stop the game -- at least barring further positives. As always, this remains a fluid situation.

The Patriots had another COVID test come back positive on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That makes it 4 positives over the past 8 days in New England. The team closed its facilities again, and Monday's game vs. the Broncos is "now in question," according to Schefter. We'll pass along any further updates, but Patriots and Broncos players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

The Patriots have activated RB Damien Harris (hand) from IR ahead of tonight's game against the Chiefs. Harris "will get carries" with Sony Michel (quad) sidelined, per Rapoport. We're excited to see Harris after his buzzy summer, but he's only in play as a DFS flier for now.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (pinky) was activated from IR and practiced on Wednesday. He's seemingly on track to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs. New England has a logjam at RB with Harris joining Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and J.J. Taylor. We'll see how it plays out, but it's probably a situation to avoid in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

The Patriots have placed RB Damien Harris (pinky) on IR. That knocks him out for at least the first 3 games of the season. Harris should be ready to go after that, but we'll see what kind of role he returns to. The 2nd-year back had a strong camp, but Sony Michel now has an opportunity to reclaim his spot atop the depth chart.

Patriots RB Damien Harris had surgery on his pinky finger earlier this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Mike Reiss reports that Harris' status for Week 1 is now "in question." This all follows a buzzy summer that seemed to have the 2nd-year back in line for a big role out of the gate. We'll see when Harris is able to get back on the field and how New England plans to deploy him, Sony Michel, Lamar Miller, James White and Rex Burkhead. We'd still take a shot on Harris in the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts.

ESPN's Mike Reiss writes that the Patriots' lead back role is Damien Harris' "job to lose." The 2nd-year back has taken full advantage of Sony Michel and Lamar Miller's absences in camp so far. "Harris' fresh legs and soft hands in the passing game (e.g., a one-handed catch Tuesday) have him in good position to be a primary option alongside Rex Burkhead," Reiss adds. Harris continues to rocket up our RB rankings. We also just boosted Burkhead, who is a nice late-round flier.
