  Jets | Four Jets let go    Fri Sep 1, 06:04 PM

New York Jets WR Chris Harper, WR Myles White, TE Brandon Barnes and PK Ross Martin were waived Friday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Chandler Catanzaro will be the Jets kicker to open the season. Martin could get a look from a team that is unsatisfied with their kicker situation.

  Patriots | New England makes roster moves    Sat Sep 3, 04:58 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson, RB Tyler Gaffney, WR Keshawn Martin, WR DeAndre Carter, WR Chris Harper, RB Joey Iosefa, WR Devin Lucien and TE Bryce Williams were released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: The Patriots put Dobson on the trade block, but there were no takers. A bad route-runner with bad hands, we don't think the phone lines will be burning up to add him.

  Patriots | Four WR spots set in New England    Tue Aug 2, 11:27 PM

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are considered locks as the top four wide receivers. The team is expected to keep one or two more receivers from a list that includes WRs DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper, Devin Lucien, Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington. Dobson has reportedly looked good in training camp so far, but the fact he doesn't play special teams might hurt his chances. Martin received a $600K bonus in January, so he might be the favorite for the No. 5 job.

Footballguys view: Edelman and Amendola's injury history makes the #5 receiver winner worth noting. Mitchell is the receiver to target late, but Martin can play inside and outside and could have value by the end of the season if he makes the team.

  Patriots | Several Pats receivers on bubble    Mon Jun 27, 03:02 PM

New England Patriots WRs Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson, Nate Washington and Chris Harper are all considered to be on the roster bubble by Paul Perillo of patriots.com. Perillo added that the mostly likely scenario is Martin, Dobson and Washington battling for one or two roster spots.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Washington has struggled to get on the same page with QB Tom Brady during the offseason. Dobson had a lot of drops in college at Marshall, and his lack of concentration has continued as a pro. None of these receivers have much (if any) fantasy relevance even if they do make the 53-man roster.

  Patriots | Chris Harper promoted    Sat Dec 26, 05:01 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Harper was promoted to the 53-man roster to replace WR Leonard Hankerson, who was waived Saturday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Harper was undrafted out of Cal earlier this year. He's bounced on and off the team's practice squad this year and has experience in three games so far in 2015.

  Patriots | Chris Harper cut    Mon Nov 30, 06:27 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Harper was released Monday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Harper muffed a punt that allowed the Broncos to get back in the game...and eventually win in overtime on Sunday night. He did nothing as a receiver against the Broncos and was only targeted once by Tom Brady. The Patriots are thin at wide receiver, but Harper wasn't doing anything of note.

  Giants | Giants sign 11 to futures deals    Mon Dec 29, 05:04 PM

The New York Giants signed free-agent OT Michael Bamiro (Giants), WR Julian Talley (Giants), WR Juron Criner (Giants), WR Chris Harper (Giants), DE Jordan Stanton (Giants), CB Thomas Gordon (Giants), CB Josh Victorian (Giants), FB Nikita Whitlock (Giants), LB Unai Unga (Giants), CB Bennett Jackson (Giants) and P Robert Malone (Redskins) to futures contracts Monday, Dec. 29. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep fantasy leagues should be monitoring guys like Harper and Criner. Harper is built like a TE and has good concentration. Criner has a skill set reminiscent of Marques Colston, although on a much lower level. Both are longshots worth keeping an eye on.

  Giants | Chris Harper signs    Tue Oct 14, 06:17 PM

The New York Giants signed free-agent WR Chris Harper (Packers) to their practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 14.

Footballguys view: Harper is big, athletic and has strong hands. He's never been able to play up to his potential as a pro. Only fantasy owners in the deepest dynasty leagues should be taking note here.

  Packers | Chris Harper injured    Sat Jun 14, 12:54 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Chris Harper (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during organized team activities last week. Harper was performing well during the workouts before the injury.

Footballguys view: Bad news for a guy who has to impress in camp to make the team. He's on the bubble, but Harper does have an intriguing skill set. Harper is big and physical as a receiver. He has good concentration and can win at the point of the catch. Harper is buried on the depth chart right now, but he might be able to make the practice squad in 2014.

  49ers | Chris Harper signed    Mon Sep 2, 09:55 AM

The San Francisco 49ers signed WR Chris Harper off the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.

Footballguys view: When Harper came out of Kansas State this year there were some in the scouting community who compared his skill set to that of Anquan Boldin (49ers). Now, Harper will get to learn behind Boldin as a reserve player. Harper is big, strong, and has good hands. He needs to learn how to create better separation in his routes if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro. Harper is a very intriguing prospect to watch in deep dynasty leagues.

  Seahawks | Make roster moves    Sat Aug 31, 08:24 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have released WR Phil Bates, DT Michael Brooks, DT DeWayne Cherrington, WR Arceto Clark, TE Darren Fells, DB Winston Guy, WR Chris Harper, TE Cooper Helfet, DT Jaye Howard, OG Rishaw Johnson, TE Sean McGrath, CB Ron Parker, LB Ty Powell, OG Ryan Seymour, FS Deshawn Shead, DT Sealver Siliga, OG Jared Smith, WR Bryan Walters and DT Clinton McDonald.

Footballguys view: The team just traded OG John Moffitt to the Broncos for Siliga earlier in August. Harper was an interesting rookie (Kansas State) to watch in the preseason. His size/strength combination reminded some in the scouting community of Anquan Boldin (49ers). He's likely headed to the practice squad.

  Seahawks | Battle to be heated for fifth WR job    Tue Jul 23, 11:59 AM

Seattle Seahawks WRs Doug Baldwin, Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are expected to be the top four wide receivers. Unless an injury or two occurs, that leaves WRs Phil Bates, Arceto Clark, Chris Harper, Greg Herd Jermaine Kearse, Brett Swain, Justin Veltung, Bryan Walters and Stephen Williams to battle it out for the fifth, and perhaps sixth, receiver job(s). The team kept five receivers last season, but could elect to keep six. Walters reportedly had a strong offseason working in the slot.

Footballguys view: Keep your eye on Harper here. The rookie from Kansas State has drawn comparisons to Anquan Boldin (49ers) because of his size, hands, and run after the catch ability.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin stands out    Wed Jun 26, 10:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin reportedly was a standout during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp. He and rookie WR Chris Harper were impressive, but they are still behind WRs Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate as far as the pecking order is concerned.

Footballguys view: Baldwin flashed as a rookie, but didn't make much noise in 2012. He might be feeling the pressure of Percy Harvin and the obstruction he presents for snaps in the slot, along with fourth round pick Chris Harper, who might be next in line to start outside because of his rugged game and surprising speed. Baldwin isn't worth drafting, but deep dynasty PPR league owners should be monitoring him this summer.
