Harris continues to sit behind Travis Kelce on the depth chart, but it's unlikely he will have a huge impact in the scorebook even should Kelce go down with an injury.
Harris nabbed two of the three passes thrown his way for 20 yards in Week 1 against the Chargers.
Harris played just 39 percent of the snaps in the contest, suggesting the Chiefs may go with more three-wide sets this season. While he does provide some athletic ability at the position, it's unlikely he will have a significant enough role in the offense to warrant fantasy ownership unless Travis Kelce were to suffer an injury.
Harris appears to be improving in his awareness on the field, the Kansas City Star reports.
Having played only basketball in college, Harris possesses the athleticism at the tight end position that helped other college basketball players (Jimmy Graham, Antonio Gates, etc.) thrive at the tight end position. However, he's still a student of the game and continues to drop some passes that require focus. Fortunately, it's still early in camp and the third-year tight end has plenty of time to iron out the issues. Even if he does, tt's still unlikely Harris will see extensive action on Sunday's unless Travis Kelce suffers an injury.
Harris didn't see much action this season despite being the second tight end behind Travis Kelce. He did finally collect his first career touchdown in Week 17 against the Raiders, and the
Demetrius Harris agreed to a three-year extension with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, NFL.com reports.
The backup tight end can earn up to $6.3 million over the course of the deal. Harris was targeted a mere 12 times during the regular, catching seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown while playing behind Travis Kelce. He is already a good blocker, and there is hope the 24-year-old can become a more well-rounded player if he can tap more into his raw abilities.
