Kelvin Harmon: Facing competition from rookies

Harmon could face competition from rookie draft picks Antonio Gibson (third round) and Antonio Gandy-Golden, ESPN.com's John Keim reports.

Analysis: Gibson is arguably more of a threat to slot man Steven Sims or even passing-down back J.D. McKissic, while Gandy-Golden is a direct competitor for the perimeter snaps that went to Harmon throughout the second half of last season. The 2019 sixth-round pick finished his rookie season with a 68.2 percent catch rate and 8.3 yards per target, but he never became a player that demanded heavy volume, drawing no more than six targets in any one game. Harmon has the advantage of NFL experience, but Gandy-Golden is the better prospect coming out of college, and both will need to learn a new system under offensive coordinator Scott Turner.

Kelvin Harmon: Finishes year with 365 yards

Harmon caught three of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 47-16 loss to Dallas, finishing his rookie season with 30 receptions for 365 yards on 44 targets.

Analysis: The sixth-round pick had no more than 58 yards in any game and never scored a touchdown, but he did play at least 66 percent of offensive snaps in seven consecutive games to close out the season, averaging 3.1 catches for 41.4 yards on 5.0 targets over that stretch. While fellow rookies Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims were far more interesting for fantasy managers, Harmon did well to catch 68.2 percent of his chances for 8.3 yards per target in an offense that finished the season with a 62.2 completion percentage and 6.7 yards per pass attempt. Harmon should have a chance at a starting job in 2020, presumably competing for the outside spot across from McLaurin while Sims continues to man the slot.

Kelvin Harmon: Delivers season-best yardage

Harmon caught five of six passes for 58 yards and completed his lone pass attempt for 11 yards during Sunday's 41-35, overtime loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Harmon provided his most productive outing of the season as he finished second among Washington's wide receivers in offensive snaps, only one snap behind Terry McLaurin. The rookie sixth-round pick has enjoyed a strong second half of the season working as the team's No. 3 wide receiver, catching 19 passes for 257 yards in the last six games.

Kelvin Harmon: Two receptions in start

Harmon recorded two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Harmon got the start Sunday alongside Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve. The rookie now has 14 receptions for 199 yards in the past five contests and could see his reps continue to climb over the final two games of the year.

Kelvin Harmon: Filling in for Richardson

Harmon is expected to start in Washington's final three games of the season after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site

Analysis: Harmon had already been seeing starter-level snaps while Richardson missed three of the Redskins' previous four games and was pulled early in the other due to injury. Between those four contests, Harmon combined to produce 12 receptions for 177 yards and no touchdowns on 21 targets. Though Harmon should draw a decent amount of targets the rest of the way, he'll likely struggle to translate those looks into useful fantasy production while rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins directs one of the NFL's least proficient passing attacks.

Kelvin Harmon: Catches long pass

Harmon caught one for four targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The 21-year-old got down to the two-yard line with his 30-yard reception in the second quarter, setting up a Washington touchdown. Harmon actually ranked second among Redskins wideouts with 55 offensive snaps (behind Terry McLaurin), though Steven Sims was still more involved with four catches on seven targets. The rookie sixth-round pick could continue seeing a higher snap share if Paul Richardson (hamstring) and Trey Quinn (concussion) remain sidelined, but the inconsistencies of Washington's passing game make him an unreliable option.

Kelvin Harmon: Ready for another start

Harmon is poised for another start, with Paul Richardson (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Analysis: Harmon played at least two-third of offensive snaps each of the past three weeks, averaging 3.7 catches for 49 yards on 5.7 targets. He's made a nice case to keep his starting job if/when Richardson returns from the hamstring injury, but it's difficult to find fantasy upside in a passing game led by rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Kelvin Harmon: Leads team in receiving

Harmon caught three of five targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: With Paul Richardson inactive due to a hamstring injury, Harmon played 84 percent of snaps on offense en route to leading the team in both targets and receiving yards. It was his third week in a row with five or more targets and 43 or more yards, with the NC State product emerging as a solid complement to fellow rookie Terry McLaurin, who caught two of four passes for eight yards in Sunday's game. There's a good chance McLaurin and Harmon will continue to take most of the snaps even if Richardson returns to health for Week 14 at Green Bay.

Kelvin Harmon: Filling in for Paul Richardson

With Paul Richardson (hamstring) ruled out, Harmon likely will get the start Sunday at Carolina, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Analysis: The rookie technically has started five of 11 games, but he's only gone above 60 percent snap share the past two weeks, catching eight of 12 targets for 96 yards in that span. Harmon played 92 percent of snaps two weeks ago when Richardson was inactive, so we could see a similar workload against the Panthers.

Kelvin Harmon: Targeted six times in win

Harmon caught three of six passes for 43 yards during Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.

Analysis: The rookie wide-out's production was supposed to take a hit with the return of Paul Richardson, but Harmon still managed to see six targets for the second consecutive week. He did most of his damage early in the fourth quarter, making a leaping catch over the middle off play action for a gain of 26 yards. Sunday brings a matchup against a solid Panthers pass defense. Playing Harmon could be a risk both due to the possibility of Richardson rounding back into form and the overall struggles Washington's pass offense has faced this season, especially with rookie Dwayne Haskins adjusting to the first few starts of his career.

Kelvin Harmon: Could see fewer snaps

Coach Bill Callahan said he isn't sure how Harmon's role will change with Paul Richardson returning from a hamstring injury for Sunday's game against the Lions, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Analysis: The rookie had already been eating into the veteran's playing time before Richardson sat out last week's 34-17 loss to the Jets. Harmon finished the afternoon with season highs across the board, catching five of six targets for 53 yards on 92 percent snap share. It's a safe bet the 22-year-old stays involved in some capacity, but he may drop back to a lesser role now that Richardson is healthy again.

Kelvin Harmon: Second to McLaurin among 'Skins WRs

Harmon caught five of six targets for 53 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: The N.C. State product may see an uptick in involvement over the latter half of the season with Washington out of the playoff mix, and likely aiming to evaluate its own personnel before embarking on a sure-to-be active offseason. Harmon had not been targeted more than twice in any game prior to Week 11, but against the Jets he garnered two more targets than any other Redskins player. Monitoring his involvement in Week 12 against Detroit's struggling pass defense will be a worthwhile endeavor, as Harmon may be capable of providing deep-league value should he remain an integral part of the Washington passing attack moving forward.

Kelvin Harmon: Gains eight yards

Harmon caught his only target for an eight-yard gain during Sunday's 17-16 win over Miami.

Analysis: Harmon has not topped 15 yards in a game since Week 1. The rookie, and Washington's offense generally, has been slow out of the gate in 2019. Washington was able to eek out a win against a weak Miami team. It's hard to see Harmon improving his play Sunday agains the league's best pass defense, San Francisco.

October 15, 2019 10:11 PM EST

Kelvin Harmon: Targeted once

Harmon caught his only target for a four-yard gain in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: With Terry McLaurin back from a hamstring injury, Harmon dropped down to 10 percent of snaps on offense, after handling 57 percent the previous week. Washington did make regular use of four-wide formations due to injuries at tight end, but Steven Sims (54 percent of snaps) actually worked ahead of Harmon as the fourth guy. It is possible that Harmon gets more chances with interim head coach Bill Callahan replacing Jay Gruden for Week 6 in Miami.

October 7, 2019 8:12 AM EST

Kelvin Harmon: In line to start Sunday

Harmon is expected to start in place of the inactive Terry McLaurin (hamstring) on Sunday versus the Giants.

Analysis: Through three games, McLaurin has led Redskins wide receivers with 90 percent of the offensive snaps. Harmon is unlikely to jump to such a workload, but he shouldn't have a problem working in most three-wide sets with Paul Richardson and slot man Trey Quinn. A 2019 sixth-rounder, Harmon will look to build upon his two catches (on two targets) for 31 yards to date.

September 29, 2019 9:06 AM EST

Kelvin Harmon: Looks good in debut

Harmon caught both of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Harmon worked as the No. 4 receiver behind Terry McLaurin, Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn, logging 15 snaps on offense and 13 on special teams. The rookie sixth-round pick took advantage of his limited opportunities, with a 21-yard gain in the first quarter and a 10-yarder on the final drive. Harmon figures to occupy the same role Week 2 against Dallas, but he could eventually push Richardson for snaps if the strong work continues.

September 9, 2019 8:03 AM EST

Kelvin Harmon: Hauls in two big passes

Harmon caught two of his three targets for 37 yards in the team's third preseason contest against Atlanta.

Analysis: Harmon didn't make an impact for much of the game but displayed rapport with Dwayne Haskins in the fourth quarter. He hauled in his catches on back-to-back plays, the first coming on a back-shoulder throw that went for 21 yards down the right sideline. Next, he hauled in a 16-yard reception over the middle of the field. Harmon isn't projected to see consistent snaps in his rookie season, though he carries some intrigue due to his strong production in college.

August 22, 2019 9:22 PM EST

Kelvin Harmon: Makes preseason debut

Harmon caught two of three passes for 17 yards during Thursday's 30-10 loss to Cleveland.

Analysis: Harmon didn't get involved in the offense until the fourth quarter, his first target from Josh Woodrum getting picked off. The rookie didn't record his first catch until Washington's final drive. It was a ho-hum debut for Harmon, who many thought was a steal in the sixth round. It's hard to expect much this early, but then again Robert Davis -- listed as below Harmon on the depth chart -- hauled in a big touchdown with the starting offense.
