Harris was top five in the NFL in yards per kick and punt return both. He can give Dallas an edge in the special teams game that only a few other teams can match.

Week 8: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Tony Romo is handing off to DeMarco Murray a lot these days, but the opportunities that the Cowboys' strong rushing attack is opening up in the play-action passing aspect of the game is helping to support Romo's numbers despite the heavy dose of rushing the football. To date, Romo is ranked 10th among fantasy quarterbacks, with 148/214 for 1,789 yards passing, 14 TDs and six interceptions, with 13/38/0 rushing. His favorite target, Dez Bryant, is the sixth-best fantasy wide receiver this season, with 45/590/4 receiving through seven games, and Terrance Williams is scoring about once every three passes that he catches, with 19/338/6 so far this year (25th-ranked fantasy wide receiver). Only Jason Witten (23/266/1) has slowed down this season - currently he is the 18th-ranked fantasy tight end in the land. Excepting Witten, the Dallas offense is making many fantasy owners very happy this year. The Washington pass D is ranked eighth in the NFL in terms of passing yards allowed per game (218.6), but they are tied for next-to-last in the NFL with 15 passing TDs given up vs. a mere three interceptions (tied-24th in the NFL) and 16 sacks (tied-14th) generated to date. The secondary is not doing well this year despite a decent pass rush - Dallas is 12th in the NFL with 12 sacks given up to date. Last week, Charlie Whitehurst was sacked once for zero yards lost on his way to 17/26 for 160 yards passing, two TDs and one interception at Washington; two weeks back Carson Palmer was sacked once for -7 yards on the way to 28/44 for 243 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions. Romo should throw two or three TDs in this game if history is a guide, with a reasonable but not extravagant amount of passing yards. Advantage, Dallas.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs HOU (3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Harris contributed a deep comeback route as Tony Romo improvised on a roll out on offense. On special teams this week, Harris rebounded from a critical fumble on a punt return in the first half to boost Dallas' offense with a big return in the early fourth quarter of a 10-7 game at the time. Harris main value comes from special teams, but can fill-in as a secondary receiver on offense when needed.

2014 Week 6 vs SEA (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Harris, usually contributing more big returns than errors, muffed a punt this week in Seattle. The fumble staked the Seahawks in field goal range in the second half. Later in the game, Harris' lone reception on a deep out route was called back by offensive holding.
