WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) is officially questionable to return in Week 17.

The Patriots are demolishing the Jaguars, so don't expect Harris to return in the fourth quarter of this one. Harris has been on fire as of late, and he kept it going today, rushing nine times for 35 yards and two touchdowns while also adding one reception for 12 yards. Now we have to hope that Harris' hamstring issue isn't too serious and he can play in the regular season finale next week.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) is active for Week 16.

Harris will return after one missed game, and he should handle a heavy workload with Rhamondre Stevenson on the reserve/COVID-19 list. In the first matchup against the Bills, Harris dominated with ten carries for 111 yards and a touchdown before the hamstring injury knocked him out for good in the second half. He’s a high-floor RB2 with greater upside for this week.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 16.

Harris was limited in practice all week, but it seems like he'll be good to go for Sunday against the Bills. With Rhamondre Stevenson (illness) ruled out, Harris could be set for a heavy workload if active for Week 16.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Harris presumably isn't making the trip to Indianapolis for tomorrow night's game against the Colts. Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden will lead the Patriots backfield in tomorrow's big AFC matchup. The good news is Harris seems to be close to playing, so he should have a shot in the rematch with the Bills the day after Christmas.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) is officially questionable for Week 15.

Coming off the bye, Harris was able to be limited in practice all week ahead of Saturday night's matchup against the Colts. Harris is looking like a game-time call, but we'd think he'll push to play. If Harris travels to Indianapolis tomorrow, it would probably be a good sign for his status.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) will not return for the Patriots.

Harris returned for one play in the second half and unfortunately aggravated his hamstring issue. His Week 13 ended with ten carries for 111 yards and a 64-yard touchdown in a run-heavy game at Buffalo. Harris will now have the bye week to hopefully get healthy and return when the Patriots are back in action.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) has returned for the Patriots.

Harris immediately broke off another nice run when returning to the game, but he was hobbled again, so there’s a chance his night is done. We’ll see if he can somehow work through this during the key Week 14 matchup in Buffalo.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hamstring) is officially questionable to return for the Patriots.

Harris pulled at his hamstring at the end of the first half and went to the locker room early. He broke a long touchdown and is having a strong game against the Bills, so hopefully he’s able to work his way back in as the second half gets underway.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris has cleared the concussion protocol and will play in Week 11.

Harris is traveling with the team to Atlanta, and he'll be good to go on Thursday night. The play of rookie Rhamondre Stevenson will almost certainly lead to a more even split between the two down the stretch, but we'd expect Harris to draw the start and be a midrange RB2 with Stevenson more of a low-end RB2 this week.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Harris has not made enough progress through concussion protocol this week, and the Patriots are ruling him out ahead of tomorrow. Meanwhile, Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) has not yet been ruled out, so it appears the rookie is making progress through the protocol and might play. Hopefully Harris is feeling better soon.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (concussion) is questionable for Week 10.

Harris didn't practice all week, but the Patriots are still hoping he clears the protocol by Sunday's game. Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is also questionable, and reports have suggested the rookie might have a better shot than Harris at suiting up. Assuming the starter gets cleared, though, he'd remain on the RB2 map against the Browns whether or not Stevenson plays.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (ribs) is officially active for Week 6.

Harris has been banged up recently, but he’s active for the Patriots. He should be a solid fantasy option versus the Cowboys.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (ribs) is officially questionable for Week 6.

Harris was able to practice on a limited basis the past couple of days, and we expect that he'll be good to go for Sunday. However, the Patriots don't play the Cowboys until the late-afternoon window, so you might need a backup plan from the later games if you plan to use Harris in your Week 6 lineup.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (chest) has returned to the game.

Harris is back with the Patriots driving down 22-15 in the fourth quarter. We’ll see if he can atone for an earlier fumble on a near touchdown.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (chest) officially questionable to return for the Patriots.

Harris had one touchdown in the first half and had another play that looked like a touchdown but was overturned and ruled a lost fumble. Hopefully he's able to return soon in a game the Patriots are down to the Texans.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

The Patriots placed Damien Harris (ankle) on injured reserve.

This was the expectation after Harris missed the past two games with his ankle injury, as the Patriots are playing it safe with a promising young player. Harris' second NFL season ends with 137 carries for 691 yards (5.0 average) and two touchdowns in 12 games. He also added five receptions for 52 yards. After Harris was basically a "redshirt" type of player as a rookie, he'll be an intriguing player entering his third season in 2021.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

While Harris was added to the injury report on Thursday, this is a bit of a surprise, as he had been limited in practice all year and has continued to play despite questionable tags. However, New England is ruling him out ahead of their trip to Miami for tomorrow's game. Sony Michel is set to be the leading ball-carrier for the Patriots and is immediately a solid fantasy option in an offense that's going to want to run the ball often instead of testing an elite Dolphins secondary.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (back) is officially questionable to return for the Patriots.

Harris was walking gingerly on the sideline, and he almost certainly won't be returning tonight with New England down three touchdowns. Before leaving, Harris had 11 carries for 50 yards, which wasn't a bad showing considering how poorly the Patriots offense has played against the Rams. Following the Thursday nighter, Harris will have extra time off to get ready for Week 15.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (chest/ankle) is officially active for Sunday night.

Because Harris spoke to the media on Friday and Sony Michel (quad) was not activated off injured reserve yet, this was expected for Harris. The second-year running back might be at less than 100% while dealing with the chest and ankle issues, he remains in the FLEX mix as the likely lead runner for New England even in a tough matchup with Baltimore.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (chest/ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 10.

Harris indicated today to the media that he plans to play, but he did leave some room for him to be held out on Sunday. The Patriots play in the nightcap, so you should have a backup plan from Sunday night or Monday night if you want to use Harris in your Week 10 fantasy lineup.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (ankle, chest) was officially limited in practice.

Harris getting on the practice field a couple of nights after taking a shot to the chest that forced him to leave the game late against the Jets is a promising sign. Also, Harris is reportedly schedules to talk to the media on Friday, another positive indication for his Week 10 status. We’ll let you know how Harris, who has gotten questionable tags in recent weeks because of a minor ankle issue, is listed on the final injury report ahead of the weekend.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris leaves game after big hit.

Harris was drilled around the chest/rib area late in the fourth quarter and slowly walked to the locker room after being looked at on the bench. Before leaving, the second-year back rushed 14 times for 71 yards, and the team is officially calling it a chest injury.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (ankle) is officially active against the Bills.

The Patriots listed Harris as questionable on Friday, but it was probably more of a “probable” for the second-year back. It can be tough to predict what the Patriots will do with their backfield in a given week, but we should see a good amount of Harris between the tackles as New England deals with a struggling quarterback and a depleted receiving corps.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

The Patriots have officially listed Damien Harris (ankle) as questionable for Week 8.

Harris was limited in practice all week, but we think he'll be ready to go for Sunday against the Bills. New England tends to utilize the questionable tag liberally when players are at less than 100%, especially with no "probable" designation available to utilize.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hand) will be activated off injured reserve.

There was no word from the Patriots on this move by 4:00 PM ET, but the move is being made according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. And with Sony Michel (quad) going on injured reserve, there's an opportunity for Harris to seize a big role in the New England backfield following a strong summer. Harris missed the first three games of the season after hand surgery.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris has returned to practice for the Patriots.

Following pinky surgery, Harris' return to the field is on track, and he's been activated off injured reserve after sitting out the minimum three games. New England's running back situation is very, very crowded, but keep in mind that running backs coach Ivan Fears says the team is "excited" to get Harris back in the mix. Harris is worth a pickup if your have roster space and he's available in your league.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

The Patriots placed Damien Harris (hand) on IR, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

Harris will now miss the first three games of the year, which is unfortunate after he impressed in camp. Now, Sony Michel is suddenly a tremendous value in the middle of fantasy drafts, and Rex Burkhead should see a boost in snaps this month.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

UPDATE: Damien Harris had surgery on his pinky.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says "it'll take a few weeks to heal", so we would think he'll be out for at least Week 1. This is a tough break for a second-year player coming off a strong camp after what was essentially a redshirt rookie year in 2019, but we expect that he'll have a solid role on offense when he is able to get on the field for New England.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris (hand) might miss Week 1.

Harris has missed a couple of recent practices, and ESPN's Mike Reiss says he's dealing with "a hand injury that could threaten his availability for the season opener, according to a league source." We likely won't get much more clarity on the situation ahead of official practice reports coming out next week ahead of Week 1, but Harris has had a good summer and should have a solid role in New England's offense whenever he gets on the field. Reiss says Harris "is projected to have a significant role" in 2020 while working in tandem with Sony Michel.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris has been ruled out for Week 11.

Harris was added to the injury report yesterday, and now he’s been ruled out and apparently won’t be making the trip to Philadelphia. The rookie running back remains a dynasty-league hold that does not need to be owned in redraft leagues.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

Damien Harris is inactive for tonight's game.

Harris is a healthy scratch, as his special teams contributions are limited compared to other players that are active for the Patriots. The third-round rookie's NFL debut will wait, and he's more of a handcuff to Sony Michel at this point.

Damien Harris | Patriots RB

The Patriots have selected Alabama running back Damien Harris with the No. 87 pick (third round) of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Harris was a very productive player with two 1,000-yard years (his sophomore and junior seasons) during his time at Alabama, starting and getting more playing time than Raiders first-round pick Josh Jacobs. And Harris returned for his senior season with the Crimson Tide because he wanted to be a part of the great thing Nick Saban has going for another year—he'll now join a great thing in New England with Bill Belichick and the Patriots. Harris might have been drafted higher if he left school last season, but he probably doesn’t regret the decision one bit despite going lower than expected, and he’ll now have a nice opportunity at the next level. He has the all-around skill set and playing experience to get a good amount of playing time as a rookie, and he'll likely be the secondary ball-carrier to Sony Michel in 2019. The Patriots might've just felt he was too good of a value to pass up at this point in the draft.
