  • Saints' Deonte Harty: Sticking in New Orleans

    Harty signed his restricted free agent tender Thursday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayunereports.

    Harty is set to make $4 million in 2022 while playing on the tender. Originally an undrafted free agent, Harty has made his mark primarily on special teams, as he picked up 690 kick return yards and 199 punt return yards in 2021. He also tallied a career-high 36 receptions to go along with 570 receiving yards and three touchdowns last season, though he now has more competition for targets, with Michael Thomas (ankle) on track to return to the mix, as well as the addition of Chris Olave in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Gets second-round tender

    The Saints are giving Harris a second-round tender, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    This all but assures the restricted free agent will stay with the Saints, as no team would give up a second-round pick for the right to sign him. Harris did have a career year in 2021 as the Saints' No. 3 receiver and return specialist, catching 36 of 59 targets for 570 yards and three touchdowns. Listed at 5-foot-6, 170 pounds, Harris likely will be the team's third or fourth receiver in 2022.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Tallies three receptions

    Harris recorded three receptions on four targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Falcons.

    Harris finished second on the team in targets and receptions behind only Tre'Quan Smith. However, that translated into subpar production as the Saints took to the air only 24 times as opposed to 46 rushing attempts. Harris had an inconsistent season marred by a three-game suspension, time on the reserve/COVID-19 list and a hamstring injury. However, when on the field he emerged as a big-play threat by logging five receptions of 20 or more yards and four receptions that gained at least 40 yards. The Saints could overhaul their offensive personnel this offseason, meaning Harris' potential role in 2022 remains unclear.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Two catches in return

    Harris caught two of two targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 18-10 win over Carolina.

    Making his return from a three-game suspension, Harris finished third among Saints wide receivers in offensive snaps, despite the absence of Tre'Quan Smith (chest). While Harris still was able to do just as much damage as Lil'Jordan Humphrey (two catches for 28 yards), both of these receivers watched as Marquez Callaway brought in six of 10 targets for 97 yards. However, it's possible that Harris' mid-week stint on the COVID-19 list impacted his playing time. If so, Harris could be in store for a heightened workload Week 18 against Atlanta, especially if Smith remains sidelined.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Removed from COVID-19 list

    Harris (illness) was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Harris spent time on the COVID-19 list during the third and final week of his league-imposed suspension, but if he checks out fine from a conditioning standpoint, he could step into a big role this Sunday against Carolina. Starting wideout Tre'Quan Smith (chest) has been ruled out already, with backups Lil'Jordan Humphrey (illness) and Ty Montgomery (back) listed as questionable. Still, there's not a ton of upside for the Saints' passing game with Taysom Hill at quarterback.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Suspension over

    Harris' suspension was lifted Tuesday, but he remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Harris found himself on the COVID-19 list Sunday, just one day before he was set to fulfill his three-game ban for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse. If he clears amended league protocols in time to play Week 17 against the Panthers, he'd join Marquez Callaway, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and potentially Tre'Quan Smith (chest) as the primary wide receivers for whoever happens to be available at quarterback for the Saints.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Moves to COVID-19 list

    The Saints placed Harris (suspension) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Harris has one game to go on his three-game suspension, which will be served once the Saints play Monday against the Dolphins. Once the ban is lifted Tuesday, though, he'll already be on a different reserve list, with his return to the team subject to COVID-19 protocols. If Harris is able to at some point in the next week, he'll be eligible to play next Sunday versus the Panthers.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Loses appeal, faces three-game ban

    The NFL announced that Harris' three-game suspension was upheld following his appeal and will go into effect beginning with the Saints' Week 14 game Sunday against the Jets, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    Harris was handed the suspension in late November following his July arrest on a DWI charge, but he was able to play in the Saints' past two games while waiting for his appeal to be heard. An already shallow New Orleans pass-catching group will now become even weaker with the loss of Harris, who leads the team with 523 receiving yards and ranks second with 31 receptions through his 11 appearances. He'll be eligible to rejoin the lineup for the Saints' Week 17 game against the Dolphins on Jan. 2. While Harris is out, the Saints likely will turn to a combination of Ty Montgomery, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Kenny Stills to serve as their No. 3 wideout alongside starters Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Scores long receiving TD

    Harris secured four of eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown, rushed once for three yards and returned four punts for 37 yards in the Saints' 27-17 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night.

    The speedster put the icing on his fantasy performance with a 70-yard touchdown reception late in the fourth quarter that turned out to be meaningless to the game's outcome but certainly propped up his final tally significantly. Harris' score was his third of the season and first since Week 5, and his yardage total both paced the Saints and qualified as a career high. If the 23-year-old is successful in his appeal of a three-game ban for violation of the league's policy and program for substances of abuse, he'll next have an opportunity to build on his numbers against the Jets on the road in Week 14 a week from Sunday.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Appealing three-game ban

    Harris was handed a three-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse, and he's opted to appeal the ban, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Harris was able to play Thursday against the Bills due to the appeal, catching one of five targets for nine yards and returning four kickoffs for 61 yards and one punt for 12 yards. The 23-year-old will remain eligible to play until a decision is made on his appeal.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Does little with five targets

    Harris caught two of five targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 40-29 loss to Philadelphia.

    Harris again ran as the No. 3 receiver behind Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway. The Saints tried to hit him deep on more than one occasion, but the absence of the New Orleans' starting left and right tackles made it hard for some passing plays to develop. While it's possible he could break one loose in any given game -- like he did in Week 1 and Week 5 -- Harris will remain a dart throw in most fantasy formats entering a Week 12 matchup with Buffalo.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Works as deep threat

    Harris recorded three receptions on four targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Titans.

    Harris saw his role dip, as he entered the game having commanded at least seven targets in three of his last four games. Even so, he made the most of his opportunity by recording receptions of 46, 21 and 17 yards to post his best yardage total in a contest this season. Harris has now managed nine receptions for 136 yards across two games with Trevor Siemian as the starting quarterback heading into a Week 11 matchup against the Eagles.
