- Damien Harris has (+120) odds to score a touchdown on Sunday Vs. New York.
- Damien Harris is (-114) to go OVER 75 yards on Sunday and has a value of $5,200 on DraftKings.
NEW YORK – RB Damien Harris was absolutely humming last Sunday, until a late fumble cost his team the game against the Miami Dolphins. He will look to right the ship this Sunday in a plum matchup against the New York Jets in the Meadowlands.
Set to be the RB1 for the Patriots bevy of running backs this year, Damien Harris got off to a strong start against the Dolphins, busting long run after long run.
At a mid tier price tag of $5200 on DraftKings, Harris will provide players with a strong semblance of floor and upside this Sunday.
While the lack of receiving work is worrisome, his (+120) odds as an any anytime touchdown scorer on Bovada should put those fears to bed. These odds make him the most likely Patriot to find pay dirt on Sunday.
The Jets ranked in the middle of the pack last year against running backs, averaging one rushing touchdown allowed per game.
Trusting a Patriots running back in DFS is never easy, however Patriots coaches have been vocal this week about Harris’ resilience, and his likelihood to bounce back this Sunday.
Patriots running back coach Ivan Fears was quoted as saying: “I feel confident Damien (Harris) will step up to the plate with this. I really do. We have not had a problem with him.”
Regulated sportsbooks have set Harris’ yardage prop total at 75 this weekend. If combining that with his (+120) odds likelihood of finding the end zone, we’d find a running back that should be to score around 15-18 points.
At a mere $5,200 salary, Damien Harris makes for a strong DFS and prop bet play come Sunday.
The game begins at 1:00 p.m. EST and can be viewed through CBS Networks.
