Harris had one target and no receptions in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.
Harris made some noise with 15 catches during a two-week stretch in early November, but he's caught just one of 11 targets the past four games. Josh Doctson's concussion might create more opportunity in terms of snaps and targets, but there isn't much reason to expect success with Harris catching passes from Josh Johnson in a Week 15 game at Jacksonville.
Harris was unable to reel in his lone target during Monday's 28-13 loss to Philadelphia.
Harris seemed to catch fire to start November with 15 combined catches Weeks 9 and 10. He has just one reception off of 10 targets in the three games since. The fact that the quarterback room has turned into an infirmary has not helped matters. Washington is down to its third quarterback this season with starter Alex Smith and backup Colt McCoy going down with a broken leg in consecutive weeks. Harris should struggle to put up big numbers with Mark Sanchez under center, especially if Washington chooses to keep it simple and pound the ball in hopes of sneaking into the playoffs. Next up is a so-so Giants pass defense.
Harris was unable to haul in any of his five targets during Thursday's 31-23 loss to Dallas.
Harris needs to get on the same page as Colt McCoy. The third-year receiver was finding a rhythm with Alex Smith (ankle) in Weeks 9 and 10, nabbing 15 of 17 targets for 176 yards. In the two games since, mostly with McCoy taking snaps, Harris has caught one of nine attempts. He shouldn't be on your radar until it's clearer that he's built a rapport with McCoy, but the good news is that Monday brings a matchup against an Eagles defense that should help the cause. Philadelphia ranks in the bottom five in the league in receiving yards surrendered.
Harris caught one of four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Texans.
After catching 15 passes the previous two weeks while primarily working from the slot, Harris struggled to make an impact Sunday with Trey Quinn (four catches for 49 yards) getting most of the work inside. It was a rough day all around for Harris' fantasy prospects, as Alex Smith suffered a season-ending leg injury and was replaced by Colt McCoy. There's little reason to expect more than four or five targets for Harris in a Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys.
Harris caught each of his five targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 16-3 win over the Buccaneers.
While nowhere close to his breakout 10-catch performance the previous week, Harris did finish second to only Jordan Reed in targets on an afternoon when Alex Smith attempt just 27 passes. Josh Doctson scored the lone touchdown and led the Washington wideouts with a 78 percent snap share, but Harris wasn't too far behind at 66 percent. Next up is a Week 11 home matchup with a Houston defense ranked sixth in yards allowed per pass attempt (7.1) and 15th in passing yards allowed per game (243).
