3 must-watch Saints in the team’s season opener against the Bucs
The New Orleans Saints will get an absolutely thrilling Week 1 matchup that, while without fans, should be one of the most-watched games of the season.
Concerns over the Coronavirus have forced the NFL, and the New Orleans Saints, to begin the 2020 season unlike any other. No preseason games and closed training camps means most fans first-look at their beloved teams will come week 1.
Here are three players to watch in week 1 when the New Orleans Saints face Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Harris joined the saints in 2019 as an underrated, undrafted rookie wide-receiver out of Assumption College. In his first season with the Saints, Harris made
the Pro Bowl as a return specialist.
In 2020, Harris looks to build off of his early success and contribute more offensively.
Drawing comparisons in size and speed to Tyreke Hill, Harris should have lofty expectations for his offensive productivity. Sean Payton has hinted at more packages for the speedster, lining him up in the backfield and in the slot receiver positions.
Look for Harris to get a couple of quick catch opportunities where breaking a tackle could be the difference in no-gain or a touchdown.
There is no better place for Harris than New Orleans, where coach Sean Payton has become one of the most innovative offensive minds in the NFL. If Harris gets a couple of targets in the passing game, we can expect to see much more of him throughout 2020.
