New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry has been working on his footwork this offseason in an effort to be quicker in 2020. Harry has also been working on creating more separation.
Huddle Up: Harry, the 32nd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, caught just 12 of 24 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. He should be the No. 2 option in the Pats' passing game behind Julian Edelman, but he isn't worth much more than a late-round flier as a WR5/6 in redraft leagues.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry is reportedly working out six days a week in the Houston area with All-En Sports Performance to refine his routes and body movement from the ground up, according to Evan Lazar of CLNS Media. The primary focus of his efforts has been to improve on his releases from the line of scrimmage.
'That's the main thing that N'Keal is missing. I told N'Keal you have to win at the line of scrimmage. The thing is when you get to the NFL, it doesn't matter how big and strong you are because you aren't going to bully these defensive backs,' trainer Rischad Whitfield told CLNS Media.
Huddle Up: It is not uncommon for college receivers entering the pros to be lacking in a certain fundamental area or two, so it's way too early to write off Harry as a bust. The Patriots had ample opportunity to address the receiver position in the draft and chose not to, suggesting they are expecting Harry to make a huge second-year leap. While it's hard to imagine that Jarrett Stidham will be more able to make that happen than Tom Brady, fantasy owners should not be afraid to consider him a high-upside WR4.

New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham and WR N'Keal Harry are planning to meet to go over the offense and work out if OTAs are cancelled this spring by the coronavirus.
Huddle Up: Sound plan for the two second-year players, who could be counted on heavily as starters in 2020, but Tom Brady-Julian Edelman they obviously aren't and both are off the fantasy re-draft radar in standard-sized leagues for the time being.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry caught two of three targets for 21 yards and rushed twice for 18 yards Saturday, Dec. 21, against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Harry has exhibited his big-play potential at times this season, but he was lost in the crowd Saturday in the tough passing matchup against the Bills. He's a risky flex play most weeks.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry ended up with two grabs for 15 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added two runs for 22 yards.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but his overall production is that of a WR5 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 against the visiting Buffalo Bills on Saturday.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (hip) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Harry has just five receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown through two games. The Patriots have been struggling to generate much offense with the passing game of late, but Harry will need to prove himself with a big performance before fantasy managers can trust him.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (hip) played only two snaps in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs before leaving with a hip injury, although he told reporters after the game he was 'good' health-wise.
Huddle Up: Harry did manage to create some controversy in his limited time on the field, however, as he was ruled to have stepped out of bounds on his 12-yard catch near the sideline when replays clearly showed he did not, costing him a touchdown. Either way, the rookie has yet to earn the kind of trust from Tom Brady and Bill Belichick to make a significant splash in fantasy. He belongs on fantasy benches or the waiver wire until further notice.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry was targeted once and did not have a catch against the Houston Texans in Week 13.
Huddle Up: On Harry's lone target Bradley Roby beat him to the spot and intercepted Tom Brady. On a team that needs something in the passing game, putting Harry on ice after a "mistake" seems short sighted, but it's a reminder that Harry's value is more for keeper leagues.
