Patriots' Kevin Harris: Records 16 carries this past season
Harris finished the 2023 season with 16 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown and three catches for 58 yards in four games with the Patriots.
Harris spent the bulk of his second year as a pro on the Patriots' practice squad, but he ended up working in a complementary role for the team down the stretch behind Ezekiel Elliott due to Rhamondre Stevenson being sidelined by an ankle injury. The 2022 sixth-rounder remains under contract with New England through the 2024 campaign, per Evan Lazar of the team's official site, and Harris thus will have an opportunity to carve out a role next season as an early-down power back option behind Stevenson. Whether such a gig translates into fantasy relevance hinges on where Harris lands on the depth chart in the wake of the Patriots' looming offseason moves in free agency and the draft.... See More ...

Patriots' Kevin Harris: Makes impact as receiver
Harris carried the ball twice for 15 yards and caught both his targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Bills.
The 2022 sixth-round pick helped set up a Bailey Zappe rushing TD in the second quarter with a 48-yard catch and run that got the Patriots into the red zone. Harris has seen his first significant stretch of NFL action over the last three games while Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) has been sidelined, and Sunday's catches were the first of his career. Over those three games, Harris has picked up 115 scrimmage yards and a rushing TD on 15 touches while backing up Ezekiel Elliott, a role he should fill again in Week 18 against the Jets....

Patriots' Kevin Harris: Sees seven carries
Harris carried the ball seven times for 21 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Broncos.
Harris appeared in his second game this season and saw increased involvement in the offense. He was inefficient with his chances and also had no involvement as a pass catcher. Harris has limited fantasy appeal as a result, though he should continue to see work as long as Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Kevin Harris: Signed to active roster
The Patriots signed Harris to their active roster from their practice squad Tuesday.
Harris will join New England's active roster after spending the entire season on its practice squad. In his only appearance this season, the 23-year-old carried the ball four times for 25 yards and a touchdown during last week's loss to the Chiefs, and he could continue to serve as the primary backup to Ezekiel Elliott if Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) misses more time....

Patriots' Kevin Harris: Back to practice squad
Harris reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday.
With Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) out again this past week, Harris saw action on seven offensive snaps behind Ezekiel Elliott and rushed four times for 25 yards and one touchdown in mop-up duty versus Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Kevin Harris: Scores first TD of 2023
Harris carried the ball four times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Kansas City.
Seeing his first touches of the season while Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) remained sidelined, Harris plowed up the middle and broke free for a 16-yard TD in the fourth quarter for the final points of the game. His 25 rushing yards also tied Ezekiel Elliott for the team lead, as the Patriots' running game couldn't get much going until it was too late. Stevenson could return in Week 16, but if he misses a third straight game, Harris' performance Sunday might earn him a bigger role against a vulnerable Broncos run defense.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Kevin Harris: Elevated for Week 15
The Patriots elevated Harris from their practice squad to their active roster Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Harris has been elevated for the second straight week due to Rhamondre Stevenson's ankle injury. Harris didn't get any snaps last week against Pittsburgh but could get an opportunity Sunday against Kansas City since Stevenson is out again and Ty Montgomery was waived by New England last Friday. Ezekiel Elliott will lead the backfield against the Chiefs, with JaMycal Hasty joining Harris in the mix behind the former Cowboy.... See More ... See Less
Kevin Harris: Reverts to practice squad
Harris reverted back to the Patriots' practice squad Friday.
Harris was elevated to the team's active roster ahead of Thursday's 21-18 win over the Steelers but didn't see any snaps in the contest. With Ty Montgomery having been waived by New England on Friday, Harris could be elevated once again ahead of the Patriots' Week 15 game against the Chiefs to provide depth in a backfield that also includes Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle), Ezekiel Elliott and JaMycal Hasty....

Patriots' Kevin Harris: Up from practice squad
Harris has been elevated to the Patriots' active roster from the practice squad ahead of Thursday night's game against the Steelers, Evan Lazar of the team's official site reports.
With Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) out Thursday, Harris provides the Patriots with added Week 14 backfield depth behind Ezekiel Elliott, who is expected to be featured against Pittsburgh in Stevenson's absence. Harris appeared in five games with the Patriots last season but has yet to make his regular-season debut with the team in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Kevin Harris: Could be elevated for Week 14
Harris is a candidate for an elevation ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Steelers, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official website reports.
Harris has yet to be elevated to the active roster this season, but with Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) unavailable for Week 14, it's possible that Harris operates as a backup option behind Ezekiel Elliott in New England's backfield. The running back appeared in five games with the Patriots last year, producing 52 yards and a score on 18 carries.... See More ... See Less
Kevin Harris: Joins New England practice squad
The Patriots signed Harris to their practice squad Wednesday.
New England's initial 53-man roster features Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott as the team's only backfield options, but both Harris and Ty Montgomery are now back in the mix on the practice squad and could candidates to be promoted to New England's active roster ahead of Week 1. Harris appeared in five games for the Patriots as a rookie in 2022, carrying 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Kevin Harris: Let go by Patriots
The Patriots have waived Harris, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Ahead of training camp, the 2022 sixth-rounder had been looking to secure a depth role behind top back Rhamondre Stevenson, but now that Ezekiel Elliott is also in the Patriots' backfield mix, Harris is the odd man out. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, he could resurface on the team's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Kevin Harris: Starts, scores TD
Harris started Friday's preseason game against the Titans and took seven carries for 17 yards and a touchdown.
Pierre Strong made it back from concussion protocol but played deep into the fourth quarter, while top RBs Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott were rested along with the rest of the starters. J.J. Taylor also got some snaps early in the game and finished with one carry for three yards and one catch for 10 yards. The Patriots likely will keep two RBs behind Stevenson and Elliott, with the candidates for depth roles being Harris, Strong, Taylor and Ty Montgomery (leg).... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Kevin Harris: Competing for depth role
Harris is expected to compete for a depth role behind Rhamondre Stevenson along with Pierre Strong (undisclosed) and Ty Montgomery (leg) after the Patriots signed Ezekiel Elliott on Tuesday.
Prior to the addition of Elliott, Harris was a candidate to secure early-down work when Stevenson needed a breather. However, with the proven veteran back now on board, Harris will now need to battle with Strong, Montgomery and even J.J. Taylor to earn complementary touches in New England's backfield to begin the season. Harris is thus off the fantasy lineup radar as long as both Stevenson and Elliott are healthy and available....
