Harris' best game of the 2021 season:

Harris' best game came against the Dallas Cowboys in a home matchup on Thursday night. He caught four passes for 96 yards and a touchdown, including a 70-yard play where he found the end zone. Harris has the ability to be a deep threat in any game, and he proved that vs. the Cowboys.

Harris' best quote from the 2021 season:

"Yeah, it's definitely scary, but they talk about it all the time, having good (field position) yards won't pop up in the stat sheet, but you know, it's something that we put an emphasis on. I definitely take a lot of pride in it. That's part of my job, helping my team get the best field position they can. Even if it's not a 50-yard return, it is what it is. I am going to do whatever I can to help put the team in good field position." Deonte Harris
