DuJuan Harris' knee 'does not appear to be an issue'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) Packers reserve running back DuJuan Harris has seemingly bounced back from the torn ACL that cost him his entire 2013 season. ESPN reports that while Harris has to show his coaches he can be productive, his knee injury "does not appear to be an issue."

Harris will compete for playing time in camp this summer with James Starks, mainly for the right to back up Eddie Lacy. 


DuJuan Harris back at OTAs, Johnathan Franklin out


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2014) Packers running backs DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin were going in different directions on Thursday. Harris was practicing again according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel while Franklin was sidelined. 

Eddie Lacy enters serious No. 2 RB consideration


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/27/2013) Eddie Lacy is set to start the year as the Packers primary running back following the season-ending knee injury for incumbent starter DuJuan Harris. Of the rushers behind Lacy, only James Starks has been consistently good in practice. 

It suggests that Lacy could hog the playing time in the Green Bay backfield, something the team may not have envisioned when they drafted him. 

Lacy doesn't have much experience as a bell-cow running back -- just once did he go over 200 carries in college. But that's because he was behind two excellent rushers at Alabama (Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson). It doesn't mean he can't do it ... in fact it might be construed that he has fresh legs. He had just 355 carries over three seasons (Montee Ball had 356 carries just last year). 

A strike against Lacy is an injury history. The list includes a knee, ankle, chest, big toe, elbow, left hand, knee (again) and hamstring -- with two surgeries performed. This is what scared off many NFL teams (including the Steelers) from taking him in the draft. But if we're being fair he played in 12 of 13 games as a sophomore and all 14 as a junior in college. 

The other strike against Lacy is the team he's on: Green Bay loves to pass. They've averaged 405.3 carries over their last three seasons, topping out at 433 carries last year. Stunningly, that was good enough to finish in the middle of the NFL in rush attempts, though it includes Aaron Rodgers' 54 rushes (he's averaged 59.3 carries per season). 

But if Lacy gives the Packers a rushing presence much like Harris did last postseason, there might actually be more balance in the game plan from week to week. Remember, no one's really been worthy of taking pass attempts away from Rodgers the past three years. 

We're at a point in Fantasy drafts where running backs go from "great" to "not bad" to "Oh my gosh I have to pick from these people?!?" pretty quickly. Lacy's going to be a popular pick no matter what I write but the truth is that his negatives are no worse than those of Ryan Mathews and Darren McFadden. His positives are better than theirs. You should consider Lacy as a No. 2 running back to begin the year.

DuJuan Harris says knee is fine


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) Packers running back DuJuan Harris did not seem concerned about his knee injury following Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks. He told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel his knee is fine.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

DuJuan Harris still in mix to start


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/8/2013) Packers coach Mike McCarthy has high hopes for running back DuJuan Harris, who remains on the active/physically unable to perform list because of a knee injury that might keep him out another week or two, reports USA Today. Harris also missed time in the offseason after undergoing surgery to remove a cyst from one of his lungs.

"I'm excited to see when DuJuan Harris comes back, because I view him as our starter," McCarthy said. "I want him to get back in there and earn it like he did all of last year. He made an impact in our offense."

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Packers have competition at running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) The Packers will have a good competition at running back during training camp, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Five running backs -- DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green and James Starks -- will battle for playing time.

The report says each will carry the ball a lot during camp, assuming all are healthy. Harris (chest) will open camp on the PUP list, but the report says once he's recovered from a cyst on his lung he could move to the top of the depth chart based on how last season finished.

But no matter who starts, we could see the Packers run the ball more than ever under coach Mike McCarthy.

"Running the football is a collective effort," McCarthy said. "There has to be commitment from the play-caller. It's something we need to do a better job of and I'm confident that we will."


Harris hopeful for start of camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2013) The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Packers running back DuJuan Harris has no doubt he'll be participating in the first day of training camp. After having a "grapefruit"-sized, noncancerous cyst removed from his lung, Harris expects to be full go July 26. "I'll be ready," Harris said. "I'll be there." For Harris, the removal was a blessing in disguise. He would've never even known about the cyst if not for the routine check-up and now his breathing may improve without the cyst jammed up against his lungs. Harris enters training camp in competition with Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green and James Starks. By the postseason a year ago, Harris finished as the starter. In six games, Harris rushed for 257 yards on 62 carries with four touchdowns.

Harris sidelined with cyst


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2013) Packers running back DuJuan Harris posted on Twitter that doctors found a "fist sized cyst" on his lung next to his heart. He's expected to have it removed. "Should be 110% very soon and back to work," he wrote.

McCarthy indicates Harris could start


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/20/2013) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's excited for running back DuJuan Harris heading into this season. "I wish we would have had DuJuan earlier," McCarthy said. "Once he got ready I felt great about the way DuJuan finished the season. I’m looking forward to having him for an offseason and getting good things from him." McCarthy said Harris has the chance to start in 2013. "He’s going to play for us next season," the coach said. "That’s his responsibility if he wants to be the starter."

Packers GM speaks on RB Harris


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/22/2013) DuJuan Harris was a pleasant surprise for the Packers late last season, so much so that general manager Ted Thompson wants to know what he can do for them after spending the offseason with them. "He did a good job," Thompson said. "And we’re looking forward to having him here for the whole thing, because when you come in in the middle of the season, you don’t go through the offseason, you don’t get to see them in training camp and the stress times and things like that. You’re already in the regular season. So there’s a lot more that we need to get to know about him. But he did a nice job for us."

Coach: Harris doesn't have to do it all


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2013) Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt told ESPN that while he believes DuJuan Harris could be an every-down back, there's no reason for him to be one. Harris was the best of the Packers' mediocre troupe of running backs in 2012, finishing the season and postseason (six games) with 257 yards and four touchdowns on 62 carries and 81 yards on nine catches. "I don’t see why he couldn't [be an every-down back]. Do we need him to be one? I don’t think we do," Van Pelt said. "It would be tough for him to see a body of work for the season, if he wore down later in the season. But he was great for us when we had him. He was fresh and was quite the change-up from what we have in the room. But would we need him for every down? I don't think we would. If we had a Cedric [Benson] back, James [Starks] and DuJuan, I think you would have to give everybody some touches."

Niners give Harris high marks


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/31/2013) Many 49ers players told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel they believe Packers running back DuJuan Harris is good enough to remain a starter for the team in 2013. The Niners got an up-close-and-personal look at Harris in the Divisional Playoffs when he had 53 yards on 11 carries with a rushing score, adding another 11 yards on two catches. "We saw the game he played the week before or two weeks," safety Dashon Goldson said. "We didn't (know a lot). We still knew their game plan. We didn't know what kind of back he would be. But he had a lot of speed. We knew he had a lot of speed. I think he’ll hang around that football team."

Harris will face competition for job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/18/2013) The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that "the Packers are looking for a go-to back" this offseason, which means even more competition for holdovers DuJuan Harris, Alex Green and James Starks, who are all under contract in 2013. The report says "Harris showed a lot of potential, but the Packers aren't blind to the fact he's 5-7 and 208 pounds." Running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said he would like to see how Harris can do with a full workload. "You'd have to see a body of work over an entire season, whether he wore down later in the season," Van Pelt said. "He was great for us when we had him. He was fresh. Quite a change from what we had in the room."

Harris finds end zone in finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2013) Packers running back DuJuan Harris failed to see enough carries but still managed to find the end zone for the second straight playoff game during Saturday's NFC Divisional Playoff game at San Francisco. Harris rumbled in the end zone from 18 yards out during the first quarter to give the Packers the only lead of the evening. Harris saw only 11 carries and rushed for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 45-31 defeat. He was also targeted four times and finished with two catches for 11 yards in the loss.
