Damien Harris (hamstring) likely out multiple Patriots games

New England Patriots running back Damien Harris (hamstring) is likely to miss multiple games, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Harris injured his hamstring in the Patriots' win over the Detroit Lions last week. The team is still waiting on some test results to confirm the extent of the injury, but the expectation is that Harris will be out for multiple games. That sets up Rhamondre Stevenson for a workhorse role in the short-term, although Ty Montgomery (rib) could take away passing snaps once he returns from injured reserve. Last week, Stevenson rushed 25 times for 161 yards and added 14 yards on 2 catches (2 targets) while running a route on 73 percent of Bailey Zappe's drop backs. The Patriots will visit the Cleveland Browns as 3.0-point underdogs in Week 6.

Stevenson is currently the RB9 in numberFire's Week 6 rankings and our models project him for 14.7 FanDuel points, with 19.7 touches for 95.1 yards. The Browns are allowing the third-most FanDuel points per game to the running back position this season, and according to our advanced team metrics, their run defense is the worst in the league through five weeks.
