2016 Week 11 vs NE (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Harris needs open running lanes in order to be effective. There weren't any when his number was called.
2016 Week 10 vs ARI (5 / 14 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Harris was relegated to being the clear backup, but he enough snaps to comment on his performance. To wit, his best run of the game was an eight-yard scamper on read-option when Cardinals outside linebacker stayed outside, thereby allowing for a massive hole up the middle. Otherwise, accounting for the fact that San Francisco's run scheme was (seemingly) thwarted by Arizona's preparation, Harris missed out on a couple of huge gains due to picking the wrong lane on a zone-blocked run, thereby leaving at least 20 rushing yards on the field.
2016 Week 9 vs NO (10 / 59 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 83 / 1 rec)
Let's ignore Harris' fumble that finally put the 49ers out of their misery. (It was the result of a great strip by Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro.) On his other notable plays, Harris executed his assignments well. On notable runs, he gained 23 yards on two inside-zone plays. There was also a toss sweep for 19 yards in which Harris read his blocks well. On notable receptions, Harris picked up 19 yards on a screen pass, the last 5 of which came after running over B.J. Webb with authority. Harris' touchdown was another notable reception, except it required far less individual skill. Specifically, Harris' receiving touchdown was the result of a broken Saints coverage that found him wide open, ultimately resulting in 42 of 47 yards going untouched.
2016 Week 7 vs TB (11 / 39 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Harris came in on the 49ers' third drive and immediately made an impact, rushing for 31 yards on four consecutive plays. His longest run of the game, an 18-yard gain, came during this sequence. As most of Chip Kelly's running plays involve zone reads, this rare toss sweep to the left seemed to catch Tampa Bay's defense off-guard. The running lane was massive, which is why Harris went untouched for the first 15 yards. His other long gain, a 14-yard catch-and-run on 3rd-and-11 was the exact opposite, producing the single-best individual play of the game. Kaepernick dumped the ball off (of course). Harris had two would-be tacklers between him and the first-down marker nine yards away. He juked them both in close proximity, and then juked another that arrived immediately thereafter, somehow getting to the sticks (and beyond) despite being dead to rights when he caught the ball.
