New England Patriots running backs Damien Harris, Rex Burkhead and James White all have their own versions of production for this offense. If you have any of them, here’s a look what fantasy owners have to look at as we get closer to decision time on Sunday.
Fantasy Football analysis: Patriots RBs Damien Harris, Rex Burkhead, James White
In the last time out, Harris carried the ball 14 times for 71 yards, while Burkhead scored a touchdown and gained 56 yards on the ground on 12 rush attempts. He also caught all three targets for 11 yards. White had two carries for zero yards but caught four balls for 24 yards in a 30-27 road victory over the New York Jets.
Harris is banged up with injuries to his chest and ankle, so he is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. He was limited in practices this week.
The Patriots will face the Baltimore Ravens at home on Sunday night. Baltimore is coming off a performance in which it allowed just 10 points to the Indianapolis Colts. Jordan Wilkins carried the ball 11 times for 39 yards to lead the Indianapolis running game.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
The ceiling is very low for all of the Patriots running backs, and Harris is the only one of them worth starting as a low-end running back No. 3 if he can give it a go.
