Harris is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Analysis: He's the odd man out in the Patriots' backfield Sunday, with Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris (back in action for the first time since Week 12) set to lead the team's Week 17 rushing attack, with Pierre Strong in reserve.

Harris carried once for three yards in Saturday's 22-18 loss to the Bengals.
Analysis: Despite Damien Harris (thigh) still being sidelined, Kevin Harris logged just four snaps in the contest, while working behind Rhamondre Stevenson (51snaps), per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. Ahead of New England's final two regular season contests, Kevin Harris is off the fantasy radar as long as Stevenson and/or Damien Harris are available.

Harris carried five times for 19 yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Raiders while logging seven of a possible 65 snaps on offense, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: With Damien Harris (thigh) out and Rhamondre Stevenson (43 snaps, 19 carries, two catches) working through an ankle issue, Pierre Strong (four carries, three catches) and Kevin Harris worked in complementary roles Sunday. Looking ahead, neither Strong or Kevin Harris profile as high-percentage fantasy options down the stretch as long as Stevenson and/or Damien Harris are available.

Harris rushed eight times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 27-13 win over the Cardinals on Monday night.
Analysis: Harris ended up pacing the Patriots in rush attempts due to Rhamondre Stevenson's early exit with an ankle injury that first cropped up in the first quarter and was later aggravated shortly before halftime. Harris recorded a 14-yard touchdown run, the first of his career, during Stevenson's initial stint on the sideline, but he finished with 44 fewer rush yards than backfield mate Pierre Strong despite logging three more carries. If Stevenson's injury lingers into a Week 15 road battle against the Raiders and Damien Harris (thigh) remains sidelined as well, Kevin Harris figures to retain a complementary role, at minimum, in that game.

Harris was among the Patriots' inactives for Monday night's loss to the Bears, Evan Lazar of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: With Damien Harris back in the mix, the 2022 sixth-rounder was the odd man out in the Patriots' Week 7 backfield, which was led by Rhamondre Stevenson, with Pierre Strong in reserve. Kevin Harris is thus off the fantasy radar until injuries hit the team's RB corps.

Harris carried three times for five yards in Sunday's 38-15 win over the Browns.
Analysis: The 2022 sixth-rounder suited up Sunday, with Damien Harris (hamstring) out, logging 12 snaps behind lead back Rhamondre Stevenson (60 snaps), while fellow rookie Pierre Strong (one carry) saw action on four snaps. For now, Kevin Harris is off the fantasy radar, but if at any point the Patriots are without both Stevenson and Damien Harris, he could be pressed into an expanded early-down role.

The Patriots signed Harris off their practice squad Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The sixth-round rookie out of South Carolina was unable to secure a spot on the Patriots' Week 1 roster, but New England thought enough of the 5-foot-10, 225-pound back to include him on its practice squad once he cleared waivers. With Ty Montgomery (knee) having since been moved to injured reserve and with Damien Harris (hamstring) looking unlikely to suit up Sunday in Cleveland, Kevin Harris looks like he could get the chance to make his NFL debut Week 6. Though Rhamondre Stevenson is capable of playing on both early downs and passing downs and is projected to take on a heavier role than usual this weekend, Harris could make for an ideal power-running complement when Stevenson needs a breather.
