WR - WAS - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Washington Football Team wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Sunday, the team announced.
Harmon tore his ACL in July and will miss the 2020 season. As a rookie in 2019, Harmon caught 30 of his 44 targets for 365 yards.
Washington 2nd-year WR Kelvin Harmon has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entirety of the 2020 season.
Tough blow for both Washington and Harmon, who was the front-runner to start opposite Terry McLaurin. Harmon will spend 2020 recovering and preparing for the 2021 season. Meanwhile, rookie WR Antonio Gandy-Golden could be asked to take on a larger role in the offense as the No. 2 outside receiver. Steven Sims is still likely to operate out of the slot this season. Gandy-Golden is still just a dart throw at the end of fantasy drafts, but you could do worse than to take a flier on a guy that should see an increase in targets on an offense that should spend much of the season playing from behind.
Redskins WR Kelvin Harmon appears to be the frontrunner to start opposite Terry McLaurin for Washington in 2020, with Steven Sims likely operating in the slot.
Harmon, a sixth-round pick out of NC State in 2019, went for just 30 catches and 365 yards in his rookie season with the Redskins. While the numbers don’t wow you, 20 of his 30 receptions came after Dwayne Haskins took over as the starting QB in November. Harmon and Haskins knew each other growing up in New Jersey and communicate like old friends on and off the field. They’ve also been working out together this off-season. Look for Harmon to get an opportunity to start opposite McLaurin this season, and he’s a guy to give serious consideration to in deep fantasy leagues. He’s currently ranked WR #88 in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
Washington wide receiver Kelvin Harmon caught three of his five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington wide receiver Kelvin Harmon caught five of his six targets for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.
Harmon has seen his role increase with the injury to Paul Richardson and could be auditioning for a starting role next season these last few weeks. He will get one more shot against the Cowboys in Dallas next week.
