Dwayne Harris caught 6-of-9 targets for 82 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the Patriots.
Harris took over as the Giants' clear-cut No. 2 receiver in this one, out-targeting Rueben Randle 9-4. It's hard to fully get behind Harris, though, especially after his one-catch performance in Week 9 at the Bucs. But Harris has more than shown enough as a pass catcher. His one-yard touchdown was a perfect throw to the back corner of the end zone by Eli Manning in the second quarter. Treat Harris as a low-floor, medium-upside WR4/5 after the Giants' bye.

Dwayne Harris secured one of three targets for one yard in the Giants' Week 9 win over the Buccaneers.

Following a breakout game (if you can call it that) against the Saints in Week 8, Sunday was a big swing and a miss for Harris. Last week’s two-touchdown effort may have obstructed it from plain view but Harris has caught just eight passes over his last four games. Until his volume increases, Harris will continue to be a non-factor in fantasy. He’ll get the Patriots in Week 10.
Nov 8 - 8:42 PM

Giants OC Ben McAdoo "has been impressed" with Dwayne Harris in the red-zone.

Harris caught two red-zone touchdowns last week and could have had a third TD on a missed deep pass from Eli Manning. With Rueben Randle (questionable, hamstring) less than fully healthy, he should see 7-9 targets against a bad Bucs secondary. Harris is locked in as the Giants’ slot receiver until Victor Cruz returns.
Nov 7 - 6:29 PM

Dwayne Harris caught 3-of-7 targets for 37 yards and two touchdowns in New York's Week 8 loss to the Saints.

The scores were Nos. 2 and 3 for New York's fill-in No. 3 receiver. Harris is making an impact all over the field for the Giants, but it isn't translating to WR4 value in fantasy leagues.
Nov 1 - 6:32 PM

Giants WR Dwayne Harris (knee, ankle) returned for the second half of Sunday's game against the Saints.

It's a bullet dodged for the Giants, who have zero depth at wide receiver.
Nov 1 - 2:51 PM

Giants WR Dwayne Harris was forced from New York's Week 8 game against the Saints with knee and ankle injuries.

Harris got his foot stuck in the turf, and rolled up his leg. The Giants' No. 3 receiver and special teams linchpin, Harris is likely done for the day, forcing Myles White into a role on offense.
Nov 1 - 2:37 PM

Dwayne Harris caught 2-of-2 targets for 43 yards in New York's Week 7 win over the Cowboys.

The Giants' fill-in No. 3 receiver sealed the game in the fourth quarter when he burned his former team for a 100-yard kick return touchdown. Harris has some playmaking ability, but it's never translated to fantasy value in leagues without return yardage.
Oct 25 - 8:09 PM

Dwayne Harris caught 2-of-4 targets for 18 yards in the Giants' Week 6 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

At the start of the week, Harris seemed to be in line for a bigger role, but both Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle played through their hamstring injuries. On top of that, the Giants used a ton of two-tight end sets in this one with Larry Donnell and Will Tye. Harris would need an injury to become fantasy-relevant.
Oct 20 - 1:05 AM

Dwayne Harris caught 6-of-8 targets for 72 yards in Week 5 against the 49ers.

With Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle missing the fourth quarter, the Giants were forced to use Harris as their No. 1 receiver. Harris struggled with two drops, but made some nice catches and has been an upgrade in the slot. Beckham managed to return late in the game, but Harris will be on the WR3 radar if Randle misses time.
Oct 12 - 1:11 AM

Dwayne Harris caught five passes for 51 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Harris got the scoring started for the Giants with a 21-yard touchdown out of the slot. The Giants are looking for someone to emerge in the slot with Victor Cruz (calf) still out, and Harris staked his claim to the spot Sunday. This will likely go down as an outlier performance. Continue to ignore Harris in fantasy.
Oct 4 - 6:37 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said WR/KR Dwayne Harris "will get more opportunities" with the offense this week.

Those opportunities will likely come at the expense of slot receiver Preston Parker, who had three big drops against the Cowboys Sunday night. A special teams ace, Harris had 33 receptions total in three years with the Cowboys and was not targeted Week 1. He is not a recommended fantasy play even with Victor Cruz (calf) sidelined.
Sep 17 - 9:07 AM

Newly-signed WR/KR Dwayne Harris hopes to be more involved as a receiver with the Giants.

Harris only caught 33 passes in four years with the Cowboys, but the $7.1 million guaranteed he got this offseason suggests the Giants think he can be more than just a return man. The problem is Harris couldn't beat out Cole Beasley for slot duties in Dallas, and unless Victor Cruz (knee) is unable to return to full strength, Harris will struggle to find targets. Harris is a long shot to make a fantasy impact this season.
Apr 25 - 12:17 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin envisions Dwayne Harris as a blocking wide receiver.

Coughlin compared him to Super Bowl hero David Tyree. Like Harris, Tyree was mostly used on special teams. Harris played 160 snaps on offense for Dallas in 2014, but his role will likely expand in New York, especially with Victor Cruz's availability in doubt. Harris made 11 special teams tackles in 2014. He's a quicker-than-fast slot receiver type on offense.
Mar 25 - 12:55 PM

Giants signed WR Dwayne Harris, formerly of the Cowboys, to a five-year, $17.5 million deal.

The contract includes an eye-popping $7.1 million guaranteed. Harris isn't much of a receiver — he has 33 catches in four years — but is one of the league's best special teams players. He can also be utilized as a gadget player on offense. Harris turns 28 in September.
Mar 10 - 4:43 PM

Dwayne Harris caught 1-of-2 targets for 56 yards in Dallas' Week 1 loss, adding one rush for nine yards.

In a new wrinkle to the Cowboys' offense, Harris played a few snaps in the backfield. It's something for opposing defenses to think about, but not fantasy owners. Harris remains well off the radar.
