Falcons' Erik Harris: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris signed a contract with the Falcons on Thursday, Jason Butt of the Atlanta News Now reports.

Harris spent the past four seasons with the Raiders, during which he saw a significant amount of defensive snaps as he served as the starting strong safety for the team. During his 2020 campaign, Harris posted 61 tackles (44 solo), five pass breakups and a forced fumble through 14 games. The 30-year-old will aim to provide a boost to Atlanta's secondary in the upcoming NFL season.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Unavailable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game in Denver.

Harris came off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, but he won't suit up for the Raiders' meaningless regular-season finale. Instead, Dallin Leavitt stands to handle increased defensive snaps. Harris notched 61 tackles (44 solo), five defended passes and one forced fumble through 14 games in 2020.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Comes off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Harris is eligible to return to the lineup for a Week 17 matchup against the Broncos. However, Las Vegas has been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention since his last appearance on Thursday Night Football, Dec. 17 against the Chargers. The 30-year-old will have an opportunity at logging his 15th appearance (and 13th start) of 2020 in the Mile High City. He's been torched in coverage this season, allowing 13.5 yards per target and a passer rating of 124.1.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Lands on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old is either a high-risk close contact of an infected individual or tested positive for the virus himself. Harris will be away from the team until he clears the league's COVID-related protocols. Dallin Leavitt could see increased snaps at free safety in the meantime.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Without practice restrictions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (calf) was a full practice participant Thursday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Harris was questionable heading into Las Vegas' Week 12 matchup against the Falcons, ultimately fielding just four defensive snaps during the contest. That, of course, is a huge dip from his typical workload, as Harris started the 2020 campaign with nine straight starts and an average of 56.3 defensive snaps per game Weeks 1 through 10. The chances of him being active for a Week 13 matchup against the Jets are strong, with Harris having upgraded from limited to full practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Career-high 74 stops in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris posted 74 tackles, eight pass breakups and three interceptions over 16 games in 2019.

Harris started 14 of 16 games, and he may have garnered additional playing time since Karl Joseph (foot) and first-round pick Johnathan Abram (shoulder) missed a combined 22 games. The 29-year-old Harris performed well by notching a career high in tackles and running back two of his picks for touchdowns. Abram will be back and likely in a starting role in 2020, but Joseph's situation is uncertain since he underwent surgery and will be an unrestricted free agent in March. If Joseph isn't retained, Harris will likely be a full-time starter next year.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Just one tackle again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris logged one solo tackle in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.

That makes two games in a row with just one tackle for Harris. The lack of production hasn't been for want of playing time as he has seen at least 57 snaps in each game.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Makes one tackle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris had one assisted tackle during Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars.

Harris played every defensive snap Sunday but failed to record multiple tackles for the first time since stepping into the starting role Week 2. The 29-year-old has 68 tackles (59 solo), three interceptions and two defensive touchdowns through 14 games.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Active in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Jaguars.

The fifth-year veteran managed to overcome his limited practice participation the last two days of the week to suit up for Oakland's final home game of the campaign. Harris will slot into his usual starting strong safety role and try to add to the career-high three interceptions he's amassed through his first 13 games.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris has a hamstring injury and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Harris was added to the injury report as a limited practice participant Thursday. The 29-year-old had seven solo tackles and played every defensive snap Week 14, so his absence would be significant for the Raiders' secondary.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Six tackles in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris added six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Jets.

Harris has not missed a defensive snap for the Raiders in four consecutive games, though he's averaged just four tackles per contest since Week 10.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Two picks, takes one for six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris registered two tackles (one solo), three pass breakups and two interceptions, including a pick-six, in Thursday's 26-24 win over the Chargers.

Harris posted a career-high 11 tackles last week, but he switched gears and was a ball hawk in this contest, as he picked off two of Philip Rivers' first five pass attempts and took one to the house for his second pick-six of the season. He has a solid opportunity for additional turnovers in Week 11 against the Bengals, who have coughed up the football 15 times this year -- the eighth-highest total in the league.

Raiders' Erik Harris: No longer sick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (illness) practiced at full speed Wednesday and will play against the Chargers on Thursday.

Harris dealt with this illness ahead of Week 9's win against the Lions. He paced the Raiders with 11 tackles in that contest, and he'll likely be tapped for a similar role against the Chargers, whose running backs rushed 35 times in their last outing.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Estimated as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris was estimated to be limited participant on Monday's injury report due to an illness, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Harris played every defensive snap in Sunday's win over the Lions despite being listed as questionable with the illness, and it appears he's not fully past the issue. The 29-year-old seems on track to be available for Thursday's game against the Chargers, barring a setback.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Paces squad in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Lions.

Harris played all 71 defensive snaps in this contest en route to a team- and career-high tackle tally. This is Harris' fifth straight game with an every-snap role, as the Raiders have been rolling with many three-safety sets featuring Karl Joseph and Lamarcus Joyner as well. Harris has averaged 6.6 tackles during that stretch, and he'll look to tack on more in Thursday's matchup against the Chargers.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Shakes off illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (illness) will play in Sunday's clash against the Lions.

Harris only practiced in a limited fashion Friday, putting his availability in jeopardy, but he will give it a go for Week 9. The 29-year-old is expected to settle into his depth secondary role for the game now that he's officially healthy.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Lions, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Harris missed Thursday's practice due to an illness but returned in limited fashion Friday. His health Sunday will no doubt determine if he is able to give it a go. Allin Leavitt could see some more snaps providing depth at safety should Harris ultimately be unable to play.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Seals game with pick-six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris had seven tackles (six solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown during Sunday's 31-24 win over the Colts.

Harris picked off Jacoby Brissett shortly before the two-minute warning and returned it for a touchdown to give the Raiders a two-score lead. The 29-year-old didn't play a single defensive snap in Week 1, but he was on the field for all 78 on Sunday as Oakland heavily utilized its three-safety packages.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Signs with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris signed a two-year, $6.5 million contract with the Raiders on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The team originally assigned Harris an original-round tender worth just over $2 million, but the two sidesinstead were able to agree on the two-year pact. The 28-year-old had 49 tackles (36 solo) and two interceptions in 2018 after playing minimal defensive snaps over the previous two seasons.

Raiders' Erik Harris: Tendered by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders assigned Harris an original-round tender Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The tender is worth just over $2 million. Since Harris went undrafted to open his career, the Raiders won't receive anything in compensation should Harris sign with another team this offseason. The fourth-year safety set career highs across the board in 2018 (49 tackles, seven PDs and two interceptions) and could draw a degree of interest in the free-agent market.
