|While James Cook is currently projected to be the starter in Buffalo, the Bills did bring in two other between-the-tackles grinders to help shoulder the workload, one being Damien Harris and the other being Latavius Murray. After spending the past couple of seasons as the "1B" in New England, Harris is currently being projected to be the second option in this backfield and he could find himself getting some goal-line work this season in one of the league's best offenses.
What's interesting is that, while Harris is seven years younger than Murray, there's a real case to be made that Murray was actually the better back between the two this past season, as he actually looked decent in Denver. In fact, he had two games with over 100 rushing yards in the final four weeks of the regular season.
This isn't a backfield that fantasy managers will want to invest in, but there's a chance that only one of Harris or Murray makes the roster, in which case that player probably has some value as a handcuff to Cook if nothing else. The Bills are one of the league's most pass-heavy offenses, but even a mediocre talent like Devin Singletary was able to see double-digit carries in nine games during the 2022 regular season, so there's some potential here for fantasy value. Truthfully, though, if both Harris and Murray make the 53-man roster and are active on Sundays then there's a decent likelihood that neither of them ends up being worth much, as they'll both likely see too little work to be worthwhile for fantasy.
