  • Jaylen Warren Has Five Touches Thursday Night

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Jaylen Warren only had five touches in the Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, but he was efficient with his touches. The 23-year-old had 30 yards on his four carries and caught his lone target for a three-yard gain in the 29-17 defeat. What the 5-foot-8, 215-pounder lacks in size, he makes up for in strength and speed. He played just 12 offensive snaps (20 percent), but he looked spry and powerful with the ball in his hands while spelling starter Najee Harris. Warren won't have any standalone fantasy value as long as Harris is healthy, but he's a fine handcuff for Harris owners, and he'd become an immediate plug-and-play option if Harris misses any time this year.

  • Jaylen Warren's Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren was a popular waiver pickup following Week 1 after starting running back Najee Harris (foot) left the season opener with a foot injury. Fantasy managers who added Warren are likely going to have to wait to deploy the rookie in fantasy lineups as Harris practiced fully on Thursday and appears on track to play in Week 2 against the New England Patriots. Warren still holds fantasy value as a handcuff in case Harris gets hurt again but he should not be in lineups for Week 2 unless Harris suffers a setback and is a surprise inactive on Sunday.

  • Najee Harris, Steelers Are Optimistic About His Injury

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris (ankle, foot) suffered an apparent ankle/foot injury late in the team's Week 1 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Harris rolled his ankle in the contest after recovering from a Lisfranc sprain he sustained in training camp. Luckily, the injury does not seem to be significant and the Steelers are hopeful that he will be fine. Jaylen Warren was the only other running back with a touch in Sunday's game and will start in Week 2 if Harris is unable to go.

  • Jaylen Warren Steelers No. 2 Back On Depth Chart

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren was listed ahead of Benny Snell as the No. 2 back on the Steelers' newest depth chart. It is noteworthy because Snell was second ahead of him in the previous release. The 23-year-old has been making an impact all offseason, leaving many to wonder if he had cemented the insurance back role. Najee Harris led the league with 366 touches (carries + receptions) last season and dealt with a Lisfranc injury during the preseason. The team may decide to reduce workload or snap count to preserve his health and durability. This would create additional opportunities for Warren, adding minimal weekly value to his top-24 potential if Harris suffers an injury. He becomes a backup to draft and roster.

  • Jaylen Warren Still Competing For Roster Spot

    Pittsburgh Steelers undrafted rookie running back Jaylen Warren has been the team's most productive running back, both in open training camp practices and in preseason games, but he's still fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster heading into Sunday's preseason finale against the Detroit Lions. Najee Harris is the unquestioned starter, while Benny Snell Jr. is not only the incumbent No. 2, but also the back with the best special teams resume. Anthony McFarland Jr. has looked good in the preseason and also has kick-return abilities. Undrafted rookie Max Borghi is the longest shot of all to make the final roster, having joined the team last week. The 23-year-old Warren isn't a bad late-round flier in dynasty/keeper drafts, but he can be ignored in single-season fantasy formats.

  • Jaylen Warren Sees Six Touches Saturday

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren carried the ball three times for three yards and added 24 yards on three catches in a 16-15 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Saturday's preseason game. Warren garnered some buzz in camp this past week with some Steelers beat reporters observing that he may be overtaking Benny Snell Jr. as the No. 2 running back on the roster. That being said, it was Snell who got the start in the game on Saturday night. Warren is more explosive than Snell and theoretically could bring more to the Pittsburgh offense than the latter, but he will need to continue to impress as an undrafted rookie.

  • Jaylen Warren Surpasses Benny Snell Jr. As No. 2 RB

    It appears that Pittsburgh Steelers undrafted rookie running back Jaylen Warren has supplanted Benny Snell Jr. as the team's No. 2 running back behind Najee Harris. Warren has done nothing but impress at training camp and has benefitted from first-team repetitions with Harris and Snell banged up a bit. The 23-year-old probably isn't worth anything more than a late-round flier as a handcuff for those that take Harris early in deeper leagues, but he could see significant work in Pittsburgh's backfield in his rookie season if anything were to happen to Harris. Warren had six carries for 34 yards and caught four of his five targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener last week. He's rising up draft boards in dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Jaylen Warren Sees First-Team Repetitions

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Jaylen Warren saw some first-team repetitions at training camp practice on Monday with Benny Snell Jr. (knee) still out of action. Warren has flashed this summer and had six carries for 34 yards while catching four of his five targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. The undrafted 23-year-old led Pittsburgh in touches and is on track to make the roster heading into the regular season behind Najee Harris, Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr. Warren can be ignored in single-season fantasy formats, but he might be worth a late-round flier in deep dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Steelers Could Add RB; Najee Harris To Remain Workhorse

    There aren’t many questions surrounding the Steelers’ approach to the running back position. As a rookie last season, Najee Harris put forth a workload worthy of a Pro Bowl selection and accounted for around 75% of Pittsburgh’s rush attempts, rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns. While that may not sound overwhelming, the next closest player, Benny […]
