DuJuan Harris totaled four yards on four carries Sunday in the 49ers' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.
Carlos Hyde out-touched him 22-4 including 10-0 in the second half. Even more concerning was that Harris lost touches to Shaun Draughn in the passing game. If you’ve been rostering Harris, this should be your cue to cut him loose. Nov 20 - 9:17 PM

DuJuan Harris rushed five times for 14 yards in the 49ers' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

He didn't see a target in the passing game. Carlos Hyde was back from his shoulder injury and handled 13 carries to Harris' five, but both backs managed to run for just 14 yards each. Harris isn't worth holding onto in redraft leagues.
Nov 13 - 7:55 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the 49ers will "have a role carved out" for DuJuan Harris in Sunday's Week 10 game against the Cardinals.

This suggests the Niners will be limiting Carlos Hyde (shoulder, questionable) in his return from a two-game absence. Coming off an excellent Week 9, it's possible that coach Chip Kelly envisions Harris as a more permanent part of the Niners' offense. Given his receiving expertise, we'd expect Harris to serve in a passing-down role with Hyde handling most of the early downs and short yardage work. In a game where the Niners will have to throw to keep up with Arizona, Harris carries some appeal as a back-end RB3.
Nov 13 - 8:26 AM

DuJuan Harris played 88.3 percent of the 49ers' offensive snaps in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

That's up from 37.1 percent in Week 7. Harris out-snapped backup Mike Davis 53-8 on Sunday and out-touched him 15-3. The Niners are hoping to have Carlos Hyde (shoulder) back this week but if that doesn't happen, Harris should see enough work to warrant consideration as a borderline RB2.
Nov 8 - 11:51 AM

DuJuan Harris rolled to 59 yards on 10 carries while supplying five catches for 83 yards and a touchdown on six targets Sunday in the 49ers' Week 9 loss to the Saints.

Harris didn’t see a ton of carries but he made the most of his limited workload. He exploded for 99 yards before the break (78 receiving, 21 rushing) including a 47-yard receiving touchdown off a screen pass from Colin Kaepernick. His only competition for carries was Mike Davis, who rushed twice for 11 yards. Harris finished the day on a sour note by losing a fourth-quarter fumble but certainly gave fantasy owners who were brave enough to start him a nice lift. He’ll be an RB2/3 if he gets another start next week against the Cardinals. Obviously his role will diminish once Carlos Hyde returns from his shoulder injury.
Nov 6 - 8:26 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DuJuan Harris is expected to start Week 9 against the Saints with Carlos Hyde (shoulder) out.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reported Harris had jumped Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis for backup duties earlier in the week, so it is not a surprise he will get the start. Davis and Draughn should still have roles, but Harris is the back to own. He is an upside FLEX play in a great matchup.
Nov 6 - 9:44 AM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows expects DuJuan Harris to handle "change-up" duties behind Carlos Hyde (shoulder) Week 9 against the Saints should Hyde be available to play.

The main takeaway here is that it appears Harris has leapfrogged Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis on the depth chart and is the 49ers' preferred option behind Hyde. If Hyde is unable to go, it sounds like Harris would get the start. San Francisco liked Harris' run- and pass-game ability in Week 7.
Nov 4 - 11:07 AM

49ers OC Curtis Modkins believes RB DuJuan Harris has "earned more opportunities."

Harris surprisingly led the 49ers' Carlos Hyde-less Week 7 committee, rushing 11 times for 39 yards while catching two passes. Hyde is tentatively expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Saints, but Harris would seemingly be in for the start if Hyde sits. Either way, it appears Harris may have supplanted Shaun Draughn/Mike Davis as the Niners' top backup.
Nov 1 - 1:21 PM

DuJuan Harris rushed 11 times for 39 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss to Tampa Bay.

The 49ers opened the game with Mike Davis as the starter, but they went with the hot hand when Harris showed the most juice. Davis wound up with just seven touches to Harris' 13 and Shaun Draughn's 6. As Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is due back after the 49ers' Week 8 bye, this fill-in RBBC is safe to ignore.
Oct 23 - 8:05 PM

49ers promoted RB DuJuan Harris from the practice squad.

Harris should be the No. 3 back behind Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn with Carlos Hyde (shoulder) sidelined. The 49ers waived DL Taylor Hart in a corresponding move.
Oct 22 - 4:19 PM

49ers re-signed RB DuJuan Harris.

Harris was let go at "final cuts," but it was likely because he didn't have to pass through waivers. The 49ers almost certainly intended all along to re-sign him. He slides in behind Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis.
Sep 5 - 1:11 PM

49ers released/waived RB DuJuan Harris, WR Dres Anderson, OL Alex Balducci, OL Fahn Cooper, CB Prince Charles Iworah, OL Norman Price, LB Marcus Rush, WR Ryan Whalen and WR DeAndrew White.

Harris has always been an intriguing talent, but can't stick on anyone's 53-man roster. Saturday is his 28th birthday.
Sep 3 - 5:04 PM

49ers RB DuJuan Harris rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught 8-of-12 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Rams.

Playing the role of "Shaun Draughn" in Geep Chryst's offense, Harris piled up chunk plays as the primary checkdown target of Blaine Gabbert. Harris outplayed rookie Mike Davis (10-34) and put some good things on tape. Harris has bounced around the league, so he needed positive game film. He'll probably enter some team's training camp fighting for a No. 3 running back job in 2016.
Jan 3 - 8:12 PM

49ers RB DuJuan Harris rushed 11 times for 73 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in San Francisco's Week 16 loss to Detroit.

Although Kendall Gaskins led the 49ers' backfield after Shaun Draughn's knee injury last week, and Jarryd Hayne got the nominal start against the Lions, Harris showed the hottest hand in the backfield on Sunday. The 49ers' backfield distribution is unclear entering a Week 17 date with the Rams. Draughn figures to resume lead back duties if he can gain medical clearance.

49ers signed RB DuJuan Harris.

He was plucked off the Ravens' practice squad. Harris was set to lead the Seahawks' backfield last week before getting waived. Now he could form a committee with Kendall Gaskins if Shaun Draughn isn't ready for Sunday's game against the Lions. Harris isn't a recommended add for Week 16.
