ESPN Dallas believes WR/KR Dwayne Harris' roster spot is not in danger.

Harris could be pushed for the No. 4 receiver role by rookie Devin Street, but his value is as an elite special teams player. He is one of the best return men in the league, averaging 30.6 yards on kick returns and 12.8 on punt returns last season. Despite his real football value, Harris is only a rosterable fantasy asset in deeper return-yardage leagues.

Cowboys KR Dwayne Harris is recovering from right shoulder surgery.

Harris had the operation just after the season and will be 100 percent well before training camp. Although Harris is not heavily utilized as a receiver by Dallas, he finished in the top three in the league in kick return average (30.6 yards) and punt returns (12.8). He is an elite special teams player.

Cowboys KR Dwayne Harris (hamstring) resumed practicing Wednesday.

Harris has missed the last two games, leaving Cole Beasley on punt returns and Micheal Spurlock on kick returns. The Cowboys are going to need big plays out of special teams if they are going to upset the Eagles Sunday, so getting Harris right would be big. He ranks second in the NFL at 30.5 yards per kickoff return and has averaged a hefty 14.0 yards on his 17 punt returns.
