N'Keal Harry (WR, NE) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper


BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~90 Overall

Current ADP: ~100

When the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reported that Harry “struggled to get open” during New England’s mini-camp, the overreaction that ensued was borderline nonsensical. The word “bust” quickly emerged on Twitter, and Harry’s ADP shifted downward. But any challenges that Harry encountered during his initial mini-camp should have been expected.

His ability to track passes and capture congested throws remain prominent among his attributes when reviewing Harry’s tape. He is also a physical receiver, who has already demonstrated his willingness to work diligently during the offseason. His blend of dependable hands, size, and competitiveness become even more appealing when you consider his pedigree as the first wide receiver to be selected in Round 1 by the Patriots’ since 1996.

Harry should immediately procure a sizable role due to the underwhelming level of competition that he will encounter for targets. Beyond Julian Edelman, the Patriots’ collection of wide receivers includes Phillip DorsettBraxton BerriosMaurice HarrisDontrelle Inman, and a rapidly declining Demaryius Thomas - who is currently on the active PUP list.

An enticing number of vacated targets await Harry through the departures of Rob Gronkowski (72), Chris Hogan (55), Cordarrelle Patterson (28), and the nebulous status of Josh Gordon (68). Despite the assortment of reasons to be enthusiastic about Harry, D.K. Metcalf, and James Washington are among the receivers currently being selected him before him. That presents an excellent opportunity to seize this talented rookie, who will be an immediate point producer.
