The rich get richer as the New England Patriots will have rookie wide receiver N’Keal Harry making his NFL debut in Week 11, per beat writer Michael Giardi. Harry was placed on injured reserve to open the season and has been practicing since October 15th. He was on the 53-man roster against the Baltimore Ravens prior to the bye but was inactive on game day.
The Patriots face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11, which offers a decent opportunity for Harry out of the gate. The Eagles rank in the middle of the pack in pass defensive efficiency, and have given up the eighth most fantasy points to wide receivers.
Harry has some intriguing upside in the Patriots offense, but it’s hard to justify a start in his first game active. Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu remain the strong starts in the Patriots offense, and we’ll need to see how Harry fits in with them, and of course with prolific pass-catching running back James White.
Sit, but get excited about the future
