2012 Experience: 6th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: David Harris continued in his down slide in production, coming off a poor year in 2010. Opportunity seems to be a problem for Harris in recent years, and while I was wondering if he would rebound with Bart Scott on the decline, nothing came of it. View him as only a LB5 in deeper leagues.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Sure, David Harris is the top linebacker to own from the Jets for IDP fantasy purposes but what does that really mean when the guy failed to post one game of ten or more tackles in the entire 2010 season? Yes, Harris has been a good inside linebacker for IDP in the past, but it’s clear that he was not accountable enough from year to year to be viewed as a No.2 linebacker for your squad on draft day.
Some may love Harris but I’m not one of those people, and perhaps it’s because I’ve never owned him before, and have failed to enjoy his better seasons. Whatever the case, the Jets may not have another high tackle option on their defense, but they have a bunch of guys who can make plays and their front line options aren’t that bad at tacking, thus stunting extra opportunities for Harris.
Throw in that the Jets are a winning team, that loves to run the football and kill the clock, and you can see where it can be difficult for Harris to have enough opportunities to be a great IDP linebacker from year to year. If you can get Harris as a No.3 or 4 linebacker for tackle heavy leagues that would be ideal, as he won’t kill you, but at the same time he could perform as a top fifteen option.

2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
After all the talk about Bart Scott being the man for the Jets because of Rex Ryan it was David Harris sitting by Ryan’s side as the top dog in New York. Harris enjoyed a return to his rookie IDP stat line as he was a valuable IDP option all season long. With health concerns well behind him, Harris will have another strong IDP fantasy football season.
