Jerome Harrison | RB
2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: With Mikel Leshoure gone for the year, the Lions turned to veteran Jerome Harrison in free agency to be Jahvid Best’s backup. This isn’t a bad situation for Harrison as Best is prone to injury, and we could see Harrison start a few games. That said, he’s not worth viewing for you draft this summer. Look to Best as a top twelve back for you squad this summer, as he makes for an outstanding No.2 back.

2012, May: Fantasy Football Outlook
James Harrison is getting older and he’s starting to show his wear and tear in his IDP production. For a few years there we could count on Harrison holding LB2 value because he was one of the top tackling outside linebackers and one of the better pass rushers.
Harrison still has value, but we should target him no higher than a late LB3 at this point in his career. Last season he had some major question marks about his back, and an issue like that can crop up at anytime for a 34-year-old veteran.
Harrison Look For A New Home
If you were one of those fantasy owners who fell for Jerome Harrison to continue his success from the end of 2009, I’m feel sorry for you. In the end, the Browns coaching staff and upper management just didn’t view Harrison as the right fit, but it was clear a running back could continue to have success in this offense as Peyton Hillis was a fantasy stud.
As the season went along the Browns traded Harrison away to the Eagles for Mike Bell and Harrison was stuck as a backup to feature running LeSean McCoy, who was also enjoying a breakout year. Now a free agent, the Eagles have expressed interest (however they did select two rookies in the draft) in retaining Harrison but the veteran is expected to test the market for a bigger time share role than being a full time backup for McCoy.
It didn’t take long for Jerome Harrison to lose his fantasy relevance as Peyton Hillis has taken over as the top man in the Browns backfield. At some point Harrison might get another chance as Hillis probably won’t last the full season. Early on it will be hard for fantasy owners to keep him on the team.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: A knee injury to start the season and a stint in Coach Mangini’s dog house cost Jerome Harrison valuable time on the field. Couple that with veteran Jamal Lewis still as the teams start and there wasn’t room for Harrison to make a strong impact for fantasy football.
Early in the year, Harrison did have a very good game against the Bengals when he had a chance to start with 121 yards rushing on 29 carries. After that game, Harrison didn’t carry the football more than ten times in a game until week 15. Upon his opportunity to start Harrison compiled at least 34 carries for each of the last three games of the season.
Week 15, will go down as one of the craziest games for a running back to have in the fantasy playoffs with basically no one in fantasy land starting him. Just the week before Coach Mangini used a rookie running back over Harrison against the Steelers and it looked like Harrison’s fantasy value was a wash.
Then against the Chiefs Harrison carried the football 34 times for a ridiculous 286 yards rushing and three touchdowns! This made Harrison the biggest waiver wire name heading into a fantasy championship weekend that I can remember in the twenty years I’ve played this crazy game.
Harrison road out the final two weeks with strong days as he posted a touchdown in each game, and he added at least 127 yards rushing.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: You would think Harrison would have the starting job after the terrific finish he had but that is not the case. The Browns drafted Montario Hardesty in the second round this April, and he’s had a good OTA camp so far. In the early portion of camp Harrison was out because he’s looking for a new contract.
Because of Hardesty’s solid play, Harrison quickly came back to camp in late May to try and hold the starting job. Harrison will probably keep the role but Hardesty is a big threat to force a RBBC situation as he is a bigger more physical runner and would make for a goal line carrier.
This definitely hurts Harrison and he will probably needs Hardesty to suffer an injury to control the main workload on the team. Because of this we have Harrison as a boarder line top twenty fantasy back, and he could fall just out of that area by August.
Keep an eye on this situation as we move deeper into preseason games before you select Harrison on draft day.
– Good Offensive Line
– Should Be The Starter
– Decent Hands
– Bad Passing Game
