| Sony Michel headed to IR|
Damien Harris expected to replace him

FFToday's Take: The timing of Michel's IR stint is curious, but it clears the path for Harris to assume the role of an early-down workhorse. Harris was a training camp standout and was believed to be a real threat to Michel's early-down role, so he'll have at least three weeks to prove it. He may be limited to 10 touches against Kansas City for conditioning reasons, but he could push for more work in Wee 5 against the Broncos leading into the Week 5 bye.

Limited in practice

FFToday's Take: Michel was limited in practice this week and then missed his press appearance on Thursday. Damien Harris is eligible to play for the first time this season. Rex Burkhead, James White, and J.J. Taylor could also be in the mix for New England's RBBC. White in PPR leagues is the only comfortable fantasy option.
| Damien Harris placed on IR|
Finger surgery to cost him first three weeks of season

|The Patriots have signed RB J.J. Taylor from their practice squad and placed Damien Harris on IR, per source. Harris will miss at least 3 games. Taylor had a great camp. (ESPN - Field Yates)|
FFToday's Take: This move takes the air out of the balloon for one of fantasy's late risers in Harris, who was making a serious play at stealing Sony Michel's early-down role. Both players need to be rostered in most leagues, but this is shaping up to be a backfield to avoid in fantasy after James White for the moment.
|Patriots sign RB Lamar Miller, one-year deal|
Sony Michel (foot) on active/PUP list

FFToday's Take: Sony Michel (foot) opened camp on the active/PUP list while Brandon Bolden opted-out of the season. Adding Miller improves the depth at the running back position but muddies up the waters for fantasy owners. Miller is coming off an ACL injury that caused him to miss all of 2019. This move is also a wet blanket on top of Damien Harris' fantasy value.
