2018 Fantasy Outlook
Despite years of accolades and league-leading performance metrics, Harris was often outshined by his more physically dominant, flamboyant partner, Aqib Talib. Harris has intercepted two passes in each of the last three seasons, but is not the pick-six threat Talib was -- scoring just once in the past five seasons. It'll be interesting to see if his opportunities decrease with Talib's absence as opposing offenses look elsewhere for yards. Would an opposing quarterback prefer to throw at Harris, a three-time All-Pro, or less proven options such as Bradley Roby and rookie Isaac Yiadom? Read Past Outlooks

Runs INT back for six

October 19, 2018
Harris made six tackles (five solo) and recorded a pick-six in Thursday's 45-10 win over the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
It was Harris' first pick of the season and his first pick-six since 2015. He'll look to keep the turnover train chugging in Week 8 against the Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes, who has thrown four interceptions in the last two games.

Ranked as Pro Football Focus' top corner of 2016, Harris is a better player than fantasy IDP. He tallied 63 tackles in 2016 to go along with 11 passes defended, two picks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The former undrafted free agent out of Kansas has been a very consistent performer, with at least 49 tackles and two or three picks in each season since 2012. He has two things working uniquely in his favor. One, more so than other top corners, Harris is able to switch back and forth between the outside and slot -- making it difficult for opponents to take him out of his comfort zone. Secondly, Harris' flashier teammate, Aqib Talib, ranked as Pro Football Focus' second-best corner of 2016. While opponents can generally avoid top corners by throwing to the other side of the field, opposing offenses have little choice, but to throw at Harris or Talib, often at their own peril.
Harris has picked off three passes in each of the last three seasons, and he continues to get plenty of balls thrown his way with Aqib Talib on the other side of the field. He has recorded between 50 and 60 tackles in each of the last four years, so he's a bit limited in most IDP formats, but he will at least be a starting corner for deeper leagues.
Harris is recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered during the playoffs last season, which forced him to miss the AFC Championship game and the Super Bowl. However, he is on track to begin practicing at the end of July, so he could very well be up to speed by the time Week 1 rolls around. That being said, he's unlikely to see significant snaps as a starting cornerback with the Broncos bringing on Aqib Talib via free agency and Bradley Roby via the draft.
