Vikings' Anthony Harris: Snags two picks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan was only picked off seven times in the entire 2018 season, but Harris was a menace in the season opener and snagged two of his passes, including one in the end zone. This is Harris' first full season as a starter -- he had six pass breakups and three interceptions in a situational role last year -- and he looks to have high upside. However, it'll be tough to force turnovers on the road against the Packers in Week 2.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Slated for permanent starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris will serve as Vikings' starting strong safety moving forward following Andrew Sendejo's (groin) placement on injured reserve.

Harris has played well in the secondary since seeing his first defensive snaps against the Cardinals in Week 6, racking up 17 tackles (10 solo) along with three interceptions over the last six games. The fourth-year safety's strong play will likely net him the starting gig for the rest of 2018, providing Harris with an opportunity to prove that he can hold down a safety spot, which could make him a valuable asset on the open market after the season.
