2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Lions traded a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick to the 49ers for Harold, who was battling for the starting weakside linebacker gig in San Francisco. Harold will have a fresh start to battle for snaps, as Christian Jones and Devon Kennard are both newcomers on Detroit's roster as well. The 24-year-old had 71 tackles and five sacks over the last two seasons. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $3.05 million contract with the 49ers in May of 2015. Traded to the Lions in August of 2018.
Sets new career high in sacks
LBDetroit Lions
January 18, 2019
Harold tallied 10 tackles, four sacks and one pass breakup in 13 games for the Lions in 2018.
ANALYSIS
Detroit acquired Harold from San Francisco in the preseason and the 2015 third-rounder ultimately served as Devon Kennard's backup all season. Harold still managed to find his way to a career high in sacks, though he also logged a career low in tackles and will now become an become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
The 2013 third-round draft pick was used in a limited capacity in 2015, finishing with 14 combined tackles. With Aaron Lynch suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, Harold is the frontrunner to start across from Ahmad Brooks to start the year and could continue to see early-down work even after Lynch returns.
There is a strong chance that the 49ers' third round pick could be placed on the practice squad to start the season. However, with Aldon Smith gone due to another arrest, and Ahmad Brooks possibly on his way out the door as well with his own legal issues, Harold has every opportunity to earn playing time this season.
