Damien Harris could earn 'prominent role' with Patriots
New England Patriots rookie running back Damien Harris could earn a "prominent role" in the offense, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic.
Howe reported that the third-round pick out of Alabama has had a strong spring while Sony Michel has sat out with undisclosed injuries. While Michel is likely to handle the bulk of the early down work, Harris is in position to shine if Michel gets hurt.
Our models project Harris for 99 total touches, 470.8 yards, and 3.5 touchdowns in 2019.
