Harry, who requested a trade earlier this month, is in attendance for New England's training camp, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.
Analysis: While it's still possible that the 2019 first-rounder could be moved, the 23-year-old indicated Friday that he'd "absolutely" be happy if he ended up staying with the team, noting that's been focusing on improving his agility, as opposed to "playing big." At this stage, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder presumably slots in behind Nelson Agholor, Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne on the Patriots' wideout depth chart, but a strong summer and/or injuries could lead to a context that would allow Harry to stick around and potentially carve out a key role in the team's offense.

Stidham underwent surgery Wednesday for a back injury and is expected to miss around 12 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Stidham was placed on the PUP list last week and it appears he may wind up on the same one when the regular season rolls around. Even when he's cleared for action, Stidham ranks third, at best, on the Patriots' depth chart at quarterback behind Cam Newton and 2021 first-round pick Mac Jones, so his absence shouldn't have many fantasy ramifications.

NESN.com's Zack Cox views Harris as the clear favorite to serve as the Patriots' No. 1 back this coming season.
Analysis: While coach Bill Belichick isn't normally the type to detail player's projected roles, he did note that the third-year back is someone "that improved a lot from Year 1 to Year 2," while acknowledging that the 2019 third-rounder "has an opportunity to compete for a lead spot, and he's embraced that." Also in the Patriots' backfield mix are Sony Michel, James White, Rhamondre Stevenson, Brandon Bolden, J.J. Taylor and Tyler Gaffney. For now, Michel profiles as Harris' main competition for early-down work, while White retains his change-of-pace role in the New England offense. Down the road, Stevenson -- who began camp on the active/NFI list -- has a chance to compete for complementary touches, but at this stage Harris looks like the best bet fantasy-wise among the team's running backs.

Hollister is listed as day-to-day due to a back injury, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
Analysis: The free-agent signee apparently hurt himself during training camp work Thursday. Hollister is competing with Tommy Sweeney for a depth role behind starter Dawson Knox, so any significant missed time could cost him in terms of potential playing time.

Through the first two practices of New England's training camp, Newton has "led off every team period," Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: As could be expected, 2021 first-rounder Mac Jones followed Newton in every team period. At this stage, it's too early to get a clear read on the Patriots' ongoing signal caller competition, with Howe noting at this early juncture of training camp that "strictly by performance, the QB battle has been a draw." For the time being at least, the fact that Newton is taking team reps ahead of Jones is indicative of his current depth chart standing above the rookie.
