Washington WR Kelvin Harmon tore an ACL getting ready for training camp, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Harmon himself tweeted that he underwent surgery last week. The injury will cost him the entire 2020 campaign. Harmon was the early favorite for Washington's #2 outside WR job opposite Terry McLaurin. Now rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden, Cody Latimer and Cam Sims will duke it out for that spot. We'll monitor that battle but won't be spending draft picks on any of those guys for now. The fantasy winner here is WR Terry McLaurin and, to a lesser extent, slot WR Steven Sims.
The Redskins added North Carolina State WR Kelvin Harmon in Round 6 of the 2019 NFL Draft. It’s MUCH later than we expected him to go. Harmon posted a 27-462-5 line as a freshman and then topped 1,000 yards in each of the past 2 years. He cranked out 1,017 yards and 4 scores on 69 grabs in 2017, followed by 1,186 yards and 7 scores on 81 receptions this past year. It’s worth noting, though, that fellow 2019 WR prospect Jakobi Meyers topped Harmon with 92 catches last year. Harmon’s stock took a hit at the Combine when he ran a 4.60-second 40 time and registered a 21st percentile SPARQ score at 6’2, 221 pounds. On the plus side, we liked his tape. Harmon is quick off the line of scrimmage, runs nice routes and is strong in contested situations. He joins a relatively wide open Redskins WR corps with Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Trey Quinn and fellow rookie Terry McLaurin.
