Start: Damien Harris
Harris has gotten 16+ carries in each of the first two weeks, as the New England Patriots have relied heavily on their running backs to take some of the pressure off rookie quarterback Mac Jones. The Saints run defense is tough, but the heavy workload for Harris should put him in the RB2/FLEX range. Harris is the back you want to own in New England going forward.
Sit: Saints D/ST
The Patriots have long been one of the most conservative offenses in the league. With a rookie QB and many new faces arriving in free agency, the Patriots have surprising not thrown a single interception as of yet. The Saints defense is solid, but the Patriots simply do not commit enough mistakes to make the Saints D/ST a top 8 play this week. If you have no better option, it is unlikely the Saints D/ST will score negative points, but you may want to try and find a defense to stream this week that has a matchup with a more turnover prone offense.
