Dwayne Harris could play a prominent role for the Giants this season, but it will likely depend on the health of Victor Cruz, who hasn't played since 2014, and how quickly rookie Sterling Shepard catches on. Harris should at least be a top four receiver in 2016, with Odell Beckham locked into the No. 1 spot. Harris played well for the Giants in 2015 with 36 catches for 396 yards and four touchdowns, and he could see a boost if he's in the starting lineup. But most likely he won't post consistent production and is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. His only hope to help Fantasy owners is if he does start and opens the season playing on a high level, and then he should be added off waivers in deeper formats.
Harris finished the year with 36 catches for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 631 kick and 341 punt return yards and scored on one of each. Harris was a valuable contributor to the Giants both as a part-time receiver and return man and should reprise those roles next year. In leagues that don't count return yards, he won't have much value, however.
Harris (back/shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Harris had been listed on the Giants' injury report the previous two weeks with a shoulder ailment only to end up playing, but with his team eliminated from postseason contention, the veteran wideout will get the afternoon off. His absence could lead to more increased opportunities for Hakeem Nicks in three-wide receiver sets.
Harris (back/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Harris practiced in a limited fashion all week, which suggests that he has a decent chance to suit up this weekend, but given his modest production of late, he's Week 17 fantasy dart, in any case.
Harris (back/shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday. Harris has combined for a mere three catches (on five targets) for 15 yards over the last two contests, which have coincided with his current back and shoulder ailments. The return of Odell Beckham from a one-game suspension further hinders Harris' potential, but Friday's injury report should indicate whether he's expected to play in Week 17 versus the Eagles.
Harris (shoulder) caught one pass for six yards on two targets in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Vikings. Harris' role didn't change because of Odell Beckham's one-game suspension, as the Giants rotated Hakeem Nicks, Myles White and Ben Edwards with Rueben Randle on the outside. Harris simply played his usual slot role, falling shy of 50 yards for a fifth straight game. Beckham will return from his suspension for a favorable Week 17 matchup with the Eagles.
