Matt Harmon explains why the NE RB will struggle in week 12 vs. Tennessee.
MATT HARMON: Yeah, I really do not want to be messing around with the Patriots backfield so I'll nominate Damien Harris for this distinct award this week. Look, I mean, theoretically, I would love to start these backs because I think there is just a great chance that this Patriots team boat races, you know, beats the bricks off of this Titans team that's literally running out like Ryan Tannehill and the preseason boys right now.
I mean, who are some of these guys that are taking skill position reps for the Tennessee Titans? I have no idea. But, you know, we kind of saw the Patriots boat race the Falcons last game and still, you know, straight split between Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson. Harris handled 39% of the snaps, 10 carries, one target. Stevenson 12 carries, one target.
I think these guys are both right around that very low end RB3 range. Like, you could get a big game from them but it's pretty hard to trust right now. Obviously, good game script but still, I don't know. I'd rather look elsewhere for someone with a bigger carry and target projection right now.
