Harris caught all three of his targets for 14 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati. A converted basketball player, Harris is now in his fourth season with the Chiefs and has another uphill battle for fantasy relevance. Saturday's two-touchdown performance is a solid first step, but Harris is firmly behind Travis Kelce on the depth chart, and Kansas City also brought in Gavin Escobar during the offseason. Taking a wait-and-see approach with Harris is advised in the majority of fantasy settings.
Harris was arrested in Missouri on Tuesday on suspicion of felony possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports. According to the police report, Harris was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation, during which the officer detected marijuana in the 25-year-old's possession. The NFL will likely wait and see how the legal process plays out before levying any punishment for Harris, who served as the top backup to Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce a season ago. Harris reeled in 17 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in 2016.
Harris was targeted once in Week 17 against the Chargers. Harris finishes his regular season with just 17 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown. He remains behind Travis Kelce on the depth chart at the position and It's unlikely he will find a big role with the Chiefs next season unless Kelce suffers an injury.
Harris finished Saunday's game against the Broncos with career-highs in receptions (six), targets (nine) and receiving yards (37), adding his second career touchdown. The tight ends did most of the damage for the Chiefs in Sunday's Christmas affair, combining for 17 of the 25 completed passes on the day. It's unlikely Harris will contribute in a similar fashion in Week 17 against the Chargers and his value remains highly restricted behind Travis Kelce.
Harris corralled two of his three targets in Sunday's game against the Chargers. 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.
