3. Kevin Harris
While we already have Harris’ backfield mate pegged as a breakout candidate, there could still be room for Harris to break out as well. As mentioned, Harris is two years younger than Strong, which means he potentially has more space to grow and develop.
Harris is also 20 pounds heavier than Strong despite being one inch shorter, which could make him more durable and better suited to the RB2 role. Harris could see more of the carries while Strong gets more work on passing downs after catching all seven of his targets for 42 yards last year.
And even if he does open the year as the RB3, Harris could still break out if an injury arises or if Strong suffers from turnover issues.
