Vikings' Anthony Harris: Struggles in pass coverage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris had eight total tackles in Sunday's 43-34 loss to Green Bay. He struggled in pass coverage, giving up two receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown on five targets, according to Pro Football Focus.

Minnesota's secondary struggled Sunday with a young set of cornerbacks torched by Aaron Rodgers. Harris may have been overcompensating for their struggles, but he also had a few key errors and a likely blown assignment on a big play. He should continue to put up solid tackle totals as the starting safety next to Harrison Smith.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: No long-term deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is scheduled for an $11.44 million salary under the Vikings' franchise tag in 2020, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Harris and the Vikings failed to complete a long-term contract before Wednesday's deadline for franchise-tagged players. The 28-year-old could still be traded, but it's more likely he plays out the season in Minnesota. Harris enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2019, tying for the NFL lead with six interceptions while earning PFF's No. 1 grade among safeties.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Signs franchise tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris officially signed his franchise tender with the Vikings on Sunday, Courtney Cronin of reports.

The team applied the franchise tag to the 28-year-old in March, and the two sides are reportedly still working on a long-term deal, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Harris originally seemed likely to hit free agency as the top safety on the market, but he's now under contract for $11.44 million with Minnesota for 2020.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Working toward new deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris and the Vikings have been discussing a long-term contract, Chris Tomasson of The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Harris looked like a potential trade candidate when the Vikings placed the franchise tag on him a couple weeks ago, as the team faces a tricky cap situation and would need to make a sacrifice somewhere on the roster to keep him around. Now that wideout Stefon Diggs has been traded and edge rusher Everson Griffen has ruled out a return to Minnesota, the team has a bit more flexibility to retain Harris, who tied for the NFL lead with six interceptions last year, earning Pro Football Focus' No. 1 grade among safeties in the process. An extension might lower his 2020 cap hit from the franchise tag number of $11.44 million.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Slapped with tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings have franchise-tagged Harris, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Harris likely would've been viewed as the top safety available in free agency, coming off a 2019 season with career highs of 60 tackles and six interceptions. He actually served as the Vikings' No. 3 safety throughout much of his career, but Harris has excelled in a full-time role since taking over as a starter midway through 2018. The franchise tag could serve as a bridge to a long-term contract.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Sets career highs in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded 60 tackles (35 solo), 11 pass breakups, six interceptions -- one of which he returned for a touchdown -- and one fumble recovery across 14 regular-season appearances.

Harris set career-high marks across the board in 2019 as Minnesota's starting free safety, despite missing two games due to hamstring and groin injuries. The 28-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent in March, though the Vikings may look to re-sign him.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Interception on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded seven tackles (two solo), an interception and a pass defensed across 75 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Seahawks.

Harris gave the Vikings a huge boost heading into halftime, as he returned a deflected Russell Wilson pass for a touchdown to give Minnesota the lead in the contest. The safety was dealing with a groin injury before the contest but it clearly did not slow him down Monday night.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Will play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) is officially active for Monday's showdown with the Seahawks.

Harris missed Week 11's game against Denver with the groin issue, and as evidenced by this news, effectively used the bye week to get healthy. Now that he's back in the lineup, Harris is expected to draw the start at the free safety position next to Harrison Smith (hamstring).

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Earns questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Harris missed the Week 11 contest against the Broncos with a hamstring injury, but the safety was able to log a limited participation in Saturday's practice, which seems to suggest he'll be available Monday. More information regarding his status should arrive closer to the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Deemed limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) was limited in practice Thursday.

The tag is just an estimation as the Vikings did not practice on Thursday. By the time Monday's game arrives, Harris will have had almost three weeks to recover since suffering the injury in practice prior to Week 11, but his status will need to be monitored over the weekend.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Won't face Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Broncos, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Harris will miss his first game of the season due to a groin injury. Jayron Kearse is the likeliest candidate to start at free safety in Harris' stead, especially with Andrew Sendejo (groin) listed as questionable for Week 11,

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Absent from practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) did not practice Thursday.

Harris participated on a limited basis Wednesday, so it is unclear if this was a setback or perhaps a maintenance day. Therefore, his practice status Friday bears monitoring.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Surfaces on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Harris was unbothered by an injury during this past Sunday's win over the Cowboys, as he played all 71 defensive snaps and posted three solo tackles. His groin may have flared up over the next few days, however, so his practice status will be monitored for the rest of the week. If the 28-year-old isn't able to shake off the issue by Sunday's matchup versus the Broncos, Jayron Kearse could start at free safety.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (quadriceps) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Giants, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Harris began the week as a non-participant at practice, but he was able to progress enough the last couple days to avoid the questionable tag. The veteran safety should take up his usual starting role in the Vikings' secondary.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Harris wasn't able to practice Wednesday, so his limited session is a step in the right direction. If he's able to keep making progress, Harris has a shot of suiting up Sunday versus the Giants.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Battling quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris did not participate at Wednesday's practice due to a quadriceps injury.

Harris played only 79 percent of the snaps during Sunday's loss to the Bears, as he apparently sustained the quad injury at some point. The 27-year-old's status should receive additional clarity based on his practice participation Thursday and Friday.

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: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris officially signed his one-year tender offer with the Vikings on Monday.

The second-round tender is worth $3.1 million for 2019, after which Harris will have a chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The 27-year-old projects to start at strong safety next to Harrison Smith.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Receives second-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris received a second-round tender from the Vikings on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Harris logged 46 tackles, six passes defended and three interceptions last season after replacing Andrew Sendejo as the Vikings' starting strong safety Week 6. Minnesota has elected not to pick up Sendejo's contract option for 2019, indicating that Harris has a clear path to the starting job.

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.
