Keep Jerome Harrison on your Radar.

9 08 2011

I know that Jerome Harrison hasn’t made a splash in fantasy circles since 2009 when he ran for 862 yards and caught for another 220, but he has a decent skill set that rivals Best. Look closely at what Harrison did last year in a reserve role for the Eagles, 239 yards on the ground with a 6.0 YPC. I’m actually kind of surprised he didn’t get picked up sooner by another running back needy team.

Some other tidbits, Harrison is from Michigan, so there is a little added incentive to do well in his home state. And we know that Best could get hurt at any minute. We’ll see how things shake-out during the preseason, but don’t be shocked if he takes over the #2 spot from Maurice Morris quickly. It will be nice to have Harrison spell Best, so the Lions offense won’t miss a beat.

I’m not saying draft him yet, but an injury to Best, makes him an immediate pickup.
