24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
New Orleans Saints
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Expectations were raised for Harris in 2020 after the Assumption product came out of nowhere to earn Pro-Bowl honors as a rookie for his work as a returner. Unfortunately, a neck injury held the speedster to nine games, and Harris ultimately didn't have a consistent role on offense behind Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith. In fact, the performance of undrafted rookie Marquez Callaway might mean Harris enters this season as nothing more than the Saints' fourth wide receiver. On the other hand, the team lost Emmanuel Sanders in free agency and now has Michael Thomas rehabbing from ankle surgery, so there's an obvious need for someone to step up at wide receiver. Even though success at Harris's size (5-6, 170) is uncommon at the pro level, there seems to be an opportunity for an explosive player like Harris to take advantage. Read Past Outlooks

Tallies three receptions
WRNew Orleans Saints
January 9, 2022
Harris recorded three receptions on four targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Falcons.
ANALYSIS
Harris finished second on the team in targets and receptions behind only Tre'Quan Smith. However, that translated into subpar production as the Saints took to the air only 24 times as opposed to 46 rushing attempts. Harris had an inconsistent season marred by a three-game suspension, time on the reserve/COVID-19 list and a hamstring injury. However, when on the field he emerged as a big-play threat by logging five receptions of 20 or more yards and four receptions that gained at least 40 yards. The Saints could overhaul their offensive personnel this offseason, meaning Harris' potential role in 2022 remains unclear.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The speedy wideout will try to earn a roster spot this offseason as he battles Austin Carr and Bennie Fowler for depth behind Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith. As the team's primary kick and punt returner, Harris displayed his electric talents as a rookie with a punt-return touchdown in Week 3 of 2019, and those abilities should give him a leg up in making the final roster. There are plenty of mouths to feed in the passing game, so even if Harris makes the cut, he's unlikely to have fantasy relevancy in most formats.
