  • Najee Harris A Solid Play In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has been heating up of late, having run for 189 yards and two touchdowns over his past two contests. He will look to keep it going in Week 12's Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts. Harris could see nearly all of the backfield touches in Week 12 as rookie Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is questionable after tweaking his hamstring against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Consider Harris' matchup to be on the tougher side as the Colts are allowing the 15th-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs while their run defense ranks as the sixth-best in the league in DVOA. Treat Harris as a low-end RB1 heading into Week 12.

  • Najee Harris Scores Twice In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 20 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns while adding four receptions for 26 yards in a 37-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Harris saw almost all of the backfield work in this one as rookie Jaylen Warren exited the contest with a hamstring injury after only one touch. Harris has struggled for much of the season but he has now rushed for at least 90 yards in two straight contests. The second-year running back will be a solid fantasy option against the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12, especially if Warren is unable to recover from his hamstring injury in time to play.

  • Steelers Expect Najee Harris To Get Bulk Of Carries

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has been fairly disappointing through his first nine games of the season. However, the 24-year-old rushed for a season-high 99 yards last week against the New Orleans Saints. The organization believes they've found the right formula for Harris. It sounds like the team plans on giving Harris the bulk of the carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Harris didn't have much success against the Bengals earlier in the year. However, he was dealing with a knee injury at the time, so now we'll see what he can do fully healthy. He'll remain a RB2 for this game, but it's great to hear that the Steelers still have faith in him.

  • Najee Harris A Low-End RB2 In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris ran for a season-high 99 yards in a Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints. He will look to build upon that performance at home against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. The Bengals have been tough against the run in 2022, allowing just the 24th-most fantasy points per game to running backs and ranking 12th-best in DVOA against the run. Harris gained just 23 yards on 10 carries against Cincy back in Week 1 and is reportedly dealing with knee discomfort, leaving him as a low-end RB2 in fantasy heading into Week 11.

  • Najee Harris Logs Full Practice Wednesday

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. According to Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, Harris has some knee discomfort, although he doesn't expect it to be an issue for the Week 11 game against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. The 24-year-old practiced in full Wednesday puts him on track towards suiting up against the Bengals in Week 11. He has rushed for 460 yards and a touchdown while catching 24 passes for 112 yards and two scores in nine games in 2022. Harris will be the Steelers' lead back and is considered a borderline RB2 against Cincinnati in Week 11.

  • Najee Harris Dealing With Knee Discomfort

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that running back Najee Harris (knee) has some knee discomfort, although he doesn't expect it to be an issue for the Week 11 game against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. Fantasy managers should expect Harris to be limited somewhat in practices this week, though, but ultimately he should be available this weekend. The 24-year-old saw a season-high 20 carries for a season-high 99 rushing yards in the Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints, while Jaylen Warren had a season-high nine carries for 37 yards. Barring a setback with Harris' knee, he should continue to be the team's lead back against Cincy, but he hasn't scored since Week 3 and will continue to lose valuable touches to the rookie in Pittsburgh's low-upside offense.

  • Najee Harris Runs For 99 Yards In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 20 times for 99 yards and was unable to catch his lone target in a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Harris' 99 rushing yards were a season-high, easily topping his previous best of 74 yards. The second-year running back was rumored to be getting his role scaled back earlier in the week but he still wound up out-touching Jaylen Warren 20 to 12 in the Sunday win. Harris will be on the RB2 radar in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Najee Harris A Low-End RB2 In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris will be well-rested after his bye heading into a Week 10 home game against the New Orleans Saints. Harris has struggled in 2022, averaging just 3.34 YPC with just three total touchdowns through eight games. The Saints have been solid against running backs in 2022, allowing the 20th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Harris has been losing playing time and touches to rookie Jaylen Warren, which along with a struggling Pittsburgh offense, has capped Harris' upside. Treat Harris as a low-end RB2 in fantasy heading into Week 10.
