2015 Week 10 vs NE (9 / 6 / 82 / 1 rec)
Dwayne Harris had a strong performance on Sunday as he remains the Giants strongest slot WR option they have had since Victor Cruz. Harris has been a very good replacement for Cruz with a different playstyle and could be an option to pick up on the waiver wire as a #3 WR in PPR leagues. Harris made several catches on crossing patterns, getting time to achieve separation from man coverage over the middle with his speed. Harris was open in the redzone on another crossing pattern deep but Manning's pass was off the mark too far right of the receiver. Harris did an excellent job of keeping the chain moving for the Giants when he was targeted. He made an excellent touchdown grab in the back of the endzone from Manning also. Harris was wide open on a corner route and did a terrific job to keep his feet in bounds while catching the pass over his shoulder. Harris was also big on the Giants final drive to keep the game alive. He used excellent route running to get open an a corner route down the field. Harris then caught another big first down on a back shoulder fade stop pattern. Harris has the speed and quickness to beat most defenders in one-on-one coverage from the slot position. With Cruz still absent, Harris will get most of the targets from this position and is showing reliability to get into the endzone too.
2015 Week 9 vs TB (3 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Dwayne Harris was very quiet on Sunday as he registered only one catch for one yard. Harris was targeted on a slant over the middle but the defender was flagged for pass interference as he made contact too early with Harris to prevent a catch. Harris was open on a curl route on the sideline but the pass from Manning was too high. Manning also overthrew him late in the game on a fade pattern along the sideline which further led to his quiet stat line. Harris' only catch was a short one to the outside as Manning was rushed in the pocket and Harris did well to prevent a negative play as a result. Harris has shown dependability and promise as a slot receiver in this offense but there will be games like this when he is ignored for other options.
2015 Week 8 vs NO (7 / 3 / 37 / 2 rec)
Dwayne Harris had few touches on Sunday with only 3 catches but it seemed like a lot more as he made every catch count. Harris was strong in the redzone as a slot receiver and has earned significant playing time with his production so far in the season. He has strong ability as a play maker down the field and over the middle as he is not afraid to take a hit. Harris was wide open down the sideline on a streak pattern but Manning overthrew him by a few yards. Harris was also targeted twice on out patterns but only held onto one as the other was inaccurately thrown. Harris made an unbelievable play on a hail-mary high ball from Manning on the goal line, timing his jump perfectly to snag the ball. Harris then hauled in a seam route in the redzone for his second touchdown. Harris got inside of his man with excellent route running and made a terrific adjustment to secure the pass.
2015 Week 7 vs DAL (2 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)
Dwayne Harris only made two receptions on Sunday but made a big impact on special teams as he returned a kickoff for a touchdown. The Giants paid Harris a lot of money in the offseason and though his numbers offensively aren't terrific, his production as a returner and in the slot has been important to their early success. Harris made a big splash play on a slant pattern behind a Dallas linebacker. Manning threw him a ball placed in stride and Harris caught it with no defender near him which allowed for a big play down the middle of the defense. Harris caught another short pass on an out pattern for 5 yards. Harris and the Giants passing game struggled for most of the game however, due to suspect pass protection and limited passions on offense. The Giants also kept the running game alive throughout as they held the lead in the fourth quarter.
2015 Week 6 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Dwayne Harris accomplished very little on Monday night as the Giants could not get enough first downs to stay on the field for long. Harris was targeted early on a go route down the sideline but there was not enough separation for him to make an easy catch. Harris did catch a slant over the middle and made a nice play on an inaccurate ball vs the sideline but both catches were for minimal gains. Harris and the Giants were not able to throw downfield often due to the pass rush of Philly and Manning was hurried a lot in the pocket. Harris has shown potential in this offense as a dangerous slot player downfield and a good chain mover for Manning but the gamescript got too wacky too quickly in this game.
2015 Week 5 vs SF (8 / 6 / 72 / 0 rec)
Dwayne Harris has shown a great ability to achieve separation and a toughness to fight for the ball in traffic which helped him produce on Sunday night. Harris played the slot position well and exploited the middle of the field well in man to man situations. Harris did struggle with his concentration and hands at times though, dropping two very catchable passes over the middle which may have brought his total number of yards over 100 if hauled in. Harris was an excellent chain mover for the Giants and ran curls, slants and seam routes against the 49ers. Harris showed excellent toughness fighting over the middle of the field and could be a low end number 3 receiver in fantasy PPR leagues if needed as he has performed well 2 weeks in a row, except for the drops. Harris is also excellent with the ball in his hands and shows his skills as a returner when he gets balls in open space.
2015 Week 4 vs BUF (6 / 5 / 51 / 1 rec)
Dwayne Harris was a nice surprise for the Giants and helped Eli Manning have a successful day. Harris got targets on a wide variety of routes and looks to be working his way into the offense. Harris got his first catch on quick slant out pattern and then had a nice catch & run over the middle but his play was unfortunately negated by a penalty on his own team. Harris picked up another first down over the middle on a slant pattern and showed skill at getting open against the Bills. Harris' touchdown came on a seam play down the field as he got in between two defenders. Harris got open inside and took a big hit after he caught the ball but hung on for the score. Harris got two more catches on simple short curl patterns over the middle but showed he has talent as a receiver and may see more action as a result of his impressive performance.
Latest NewsGiants | Dwayne Harris delivers in Week 10 (Sun Nov 15, 09:37 PM) - New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris had six catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in a 27-26 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 10. Our View: Harris was tough in the middle of the field with lots of room as the Patriots focused on Odell Beckham. He's just an end of the bench desperation option heading into the bye, but one that can pay off.
