WR - HOU
Week 7 Outlook
New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris spoke to the team's official website about improvements they need to make on the offensive side of the football entering the 2016 season this week. "I think we're getting better just throwing the ball down the field more," Harris said. "We're definitely trying to work on throwing the ball down the field, throwing more deep passes. And (we need to get) the run game going. That's one of the key elements in our offense. We got it going later on in the season. We've just got to continue that momentum and keep carrying it in the beginning of this season."
Harris had the best statistical season of his five-year career in 2015 with the Giants. Harris was primarily a return ace for the better part of his tenure with the Cowboys and was forced into action due to the injuries to New York's receiving corps last year. In 15 games, Harris caught 36 passes for 396 yards four touchdowns to go along with his usual special team's contributions. In 2016 however, Harris will likely take a step back on the depth chart as the Giants added Sterling Shepard in the draft and expecting the on-field return of Victor Cruz to compliment Odell Beckham. Unless injuries once again creep up on New York's receivers, Harris should be kept off of the fantasy radar and on the waiver wire in the upcoming campaign.
Dwayne Harris is questionable with a back/shoulder injury.
Dwayne Harris on the season has 36 catches for 396 yards and four touchdowns.
Despite promising that he would be ready to play on Sunday night against the Vikings, Harris is struggling to make that claim a reality.
Even if Harris does suit up, he would have a very tough matchup with defender Captain Munnerlyn. Look for Rueben Randle and Will Tye to get their chances to shine with Odell Beckham being out.
Dwayne Harris was limited to two receptions for nine yards in the loss to Carolina. Harris was targeted only three times.
Harris, playing hurt, did not have much of an impact in the Giants passing attack. Harris was also limited in special teams and did not factor well in the game.
ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that Giants wideout Dwayne Harris will play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
Harris is dealing with a shoulder injury, but he will give it a go against the undefeated Panthers. Harris will go up against a stingy Panthers' secondary, but likely won't see much of stud cornerback Josh Norman on Sunday. Norman will focus his attention on Odell Beckham Jr. Harris could see some more targets if Beckham is blanketed by Norman throughout the day.
