Belichick: New England's Damien Harris 'can compete for the top role now'

According to head coach Bill Belichick, New England Patriots running back Damien Harris "was a player who improved a lot from year 1 to year 2."

What It Means:

After an impressive second year, Harris is expected to play a similar role as New England's lead running back despite the presence of Sony Michel. "Now he has an opportunity to really compete for the lead spot," said Belichick when asked about Harris. "I've been impressed with the commitment that he's shown."

Expect Harris to handle most of New England's early-down touches after the 24-year old averaged 13.7 rushing attempts in ten games last season. For the upcoming season, numberFire's models currently project Harris to produce 965.8 yards and 7.2 touchdowns on 225.2 attempts and 12.4 receptions for 90.3 yards.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott (shoulder) diagnosed with muscle strain, exits practice early on Wednesday

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (shoulder) left practice early on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Prescott underwent an MRI on Wednesday after leaving practice early with soreness in his right arm. The test reveled a muscle strain in his right shoulder. Speaking to the media after, Prescott said "I felt some soreness when making certain throws today, and I really just decided not to push things too far. Better to be cautious and smart about it. I don’t see this as any kind of serious setback. We’ll treat it on a daily basis, and I’ll be fine."

numberFire's models project Prescott for 5,160 passing yards, 29.72 touchdowns, and 6.27 interceptions this season. He is the QB5 in our preseason fantasy projections.

Raiders' Kenyan Drake placed on non-football injury list

Las Vegas Raiders running back Kenyan Drake has been placed on the non-football injury list.

What It Means:

Drake was seen at practice on Wednesday, working with a trainer on the side. Running backs Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick were absent from practice after being placed on the COVID-19 list, leaving Las Vegas thin at the position as they open camp. Keep an eye on Drake's status as the first week of camp progresses.

numberFire's models project Drake for 134 carries for 593.1 rushing yards and 4.40 rushing touchdowns with 27.8 receptions for 200.5 receiving yards and 1.20 receiving touchdowns this season. He is the RB37 in our preseason rankings.

Jets' Chris Herndon working with second string

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon is working with the second-team to start training camp.

What It Means:

Tyler Kroft started camp as the Jets' starting tight end. Herndon played 16 games last season but caught just 31 passes on 45 targets for 287 yards and 3 touchdowns. Kroft could wind up being a reliable source of targets on a Jets' offense that lacks proven pass-catching talent behind Jamison Crowder.

Herndon averaged the fourth-fewest yards per route last season out of the 43 tight ends with at least 30 targets. He is currently the TE29 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings.

Michael Carter opens camp with Jets' first team

New York Jets rookie running back Michael Carter started training camp with the first-team offense.

What It Means:

The Jets are expected to use a committee approach in the backfield with Carter, Tevin Coleman, and Ty Johnson, but it's encouraging to see the fourth-rounder working with the starters early on. Carter's pass-catching ability allows him to contribute on all three downs and he is the favorite to lead the Jets' backfield in touches this season.

numberFire's models currently project Carter to lead the Jets' backfield across the board as a rookie, with 138.3 carries, 594.7 rush yards, 35.2 catches (47.2 targets), 243.4 receiving yards, and 5.11 touchdowns. Coleman is projected for 114.7 carries and 12.6 catches, with Johnson pegged for 83.2 rush attempts and 10.3 receptions. Carter is the RB36 in our preseason fantasy rankings, followed by Coleman (RB48) and then Johnson (RB58).
