  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    If Harris is held scoreless, his stat line will be nasty. In fact, if you remove his scores, his PPR totals this season have been 4, 13, 8 and 7. That's what you should expect this week with just only some hope for a touchdown to boost those numbers by six points. Try to sit him if you can.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Racks up 74 rushing yards in loss

    Harris rushed 18 times for 74 yards during the Steelers' 24-20 loss to the Jets on Sunday. Harris recorded a season-high 18 carries during Sunday's matchup, and his 4.1 yards per carry also represented his highest mark of the season. However, he was held without a target as the Steelers made a change at quarterback after halftime. It's not yet clear whether Mitch Trubisky or Kenny Pickett will serve as the team's starting quarterback going forward. However, even though Harris was less involved in Pittsburgh's passing game against the Jets, it's possible he'll face less crowded boxes if the team turns to Pickett at quarterback and finds more success through the air.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Scores first rushing TD in loss

    Harris rushed 15 times for 56 yards and a touchdown and brought in all three targets for five yards in the Steelers' 29-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday night. He also lost a fumble. The second-year back paced the Steelers' backfield in rush attempts and receiving yards, and he delivered for fantasy managers with a five-yard scoring run in the second quarter, his first touchdown on the ground this season. Harris' fumble came on a last-gasp play for Pittsburgh with no time remaining, when he mishandled a lateral from Chase Claypool and Denzel Ward landed on it in the end zone for a touchdown to end the game. Harris has been unsurprisingly busy with 40 carries and 10 catches through three games, and he'll now get some much-needed rest before facing the Jets defense in a Week 4 home matchup a week from Sunday.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Inefficient in rushing game

    Harris rushed 15 times for 49 yards while hauling in five of six targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Patriots. Although Harris missed the end of last week's regular-season opener due to a foot injury, he was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday and saw plenty of touches during the team's narrow Week 2 loss. Although he propped up his fantasy production due to his involvement in the passing game, he was inefficient on the ground, averaging just 3.3 yards per carry after being held to 2.3 yards per carry last week. Harris' volume hasn't been a significant concern early in 2022, but he'll need to be more efficient if he's to justify the lofty ADP that he commanded ahead of his sophomore season.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Ready for Week 2

    Harris (foot) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Harris was forced out of the waning minutes of Pittsburgh's eventual season-opening win at Cincinnati with a foot injury. Ensuing tests regarding the issue came back negative, and while his practice reps were limited Wednesday, he capped this week with back-to-back full sessions. The second-year running back thus will be available for Week 2 action.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Practices fully

    Harris (foot) returned to a full practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Harris, who was limited during Wednesday's session, has been indicating that he'll be good to go Sunday against the Patriots, and his full practice participation Thursday suggests that the Steelers' clear-cut top back won't have any limitations Week 2. In Pittsburgh's season-opening 23-20 overtime win over the Bengals, Harris logged 37 snaps on offense en route to carrying 10 times for 23 yards and catching two passes for three yards and a TD, while top backup Jaylen Warren rushed three times for seven yards in the contest.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Logs limited practice

    Harris (foot) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Per Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com, the Steelers held a light practice Wednesday with no pads, so a better read on Harris' Week 2 status might not come until after Thursday's session. For his part, the running back is downplaying the foot injury he suffered this past Sunday against the Bengals, noting after practice that "it's good." That said, head coach Mike Tomlin indicated that he wants to see more from his starting running back as the week progresses before his status for this weekend's game against the Patriots is determined. Jaylen Warren is the next man up in the backfield if Harris happens to be out or limited Sunday.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Says he'll play Week 2

    Harris (foot) said Tuesday in his appearance on Sirius XM's "Mad Dog Sports Radio" that he "will be playing this weekend" against the Patriots. Harris appears to have avoided a major foot injury after he exited the Steelers' season-opening overtime win over the Bengals late in the contest, with medical tests coming back negative. Even though he noted Tuesday that he "should be back practicing this week" before suiting up Sunday, a decision on his availability for the Week 2 matchup is likely to be made by the Steelers' training and coaching staffs, not the player himself. If Harris' prediction comes true and he suits up this weekend, he could still carry a designation into the contest if he's unable to turn in a full practice by Friday. The second-year back previously dealt with a Lisfranc sprain to the same foot during training camp, so the Steelers may be incentivized to exercise caution with him and perhaps even lighten his workload and snap count in Week 2 to avoid a longer-term setback. Rookie Jaylen Warren is the next man up in the backfield if the Steelers elect to hold out or limit Harris this weekend.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Trending toward playing in Week 2

    Tests on Harris' foot injury came back negative Monday, with Adam Schefter of ESPN indicating via a source that the running back "should be good to go" this coming Sunday against the Patriots. While Harris' status still is worth monitoring closely, it looks like he avoided a concerning aggravation of the Lisfranc sprain that he dealt with in training camp. Though he may be limited somewhat in practice this week, it now appears as though Harris, whose top backup is Jaylen Warren, is trending toward being available this weekend against New England.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Exits game with foot injury

    Harris was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bengals with a foot injury, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Prior to his exit from the contest, Harris had carried 10 times for 23 yards and caught two passes for three yards and a TD. Next up for the team's carries and thus a potential Week 2 waiver wire target is Jaylen Warren.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Moves past Lisfranc sprain

    Harris, who made his preseason debut Sunday against the Lions, indicated that he was previously dealing with a Lisfranc sprain in his foot, dating back to the first day of training camp, Eric Edholm of NFL.com reports. That said, Harris drew the start at running back for the Steelers in their preseason finale on Sunday, en route to logging 28 snaps on offense, while carrying four times for 10 yards and catching all three of his targets for 11 yards. With no reported setbacks in the contest, Harris remains on track to lead Pittsburgh's backfield in the season opener against the Bengals. Currently in the mix to log complementary RB snaps behind Harris -- the team's clear-cut top option at the position -- are Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Warren.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Slated to play Sunday

    Harris is slated to play in Sunday's preseason finale against the Lions, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. That said, we wouldn't expect the Steelers' top back to log extensive action in the contest. With that in mind, the team's depth backs -- Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren and Max Borghi -- should see their share of work Sunday, with backfield depth chart slotting on the line ahead of looming roster cuts.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Won't play Saturday night

    Mike Tomlin confirmed Harris won't play in Saturday's preseason game against Jacksonville, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports. Harris dealt with a minor foot injury earlier in August, but he might be sitting out Saturday even if that weren't the case, as he's a rock-solid bet to rank among the NFL leaders in touches per game. He was able to handle a massive workload without missing any games as a rookie, leading all NFL backs in snaps (980) and touches (381). Running backs coach Eddie Faulkner suggested the Steelers would like Harris to play about seven fewer snaps per game this season, though perhaps without much sacrifice in terms of carries and targets (the idea being to take him off the field more on snaps where he's unlikely to see the ball).

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Not expected to play Saturday

    Harris said Wednesday that he's not in line to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The report notes that if Harris -- who has been managing a foot issue in training camp -- does play at all in the preseason, it will be in the Steelers' exhibition finale against the Lions on Aug. 28. In any case, Harris is entrenched as the team's top back, with Benny Snell (knee), Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren, Mataeo Durant and Master Teague (ankle) currently in the mix for depth-chart slotting behind him.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Could lose snaps

    Harris could have his snap count reduced slightly this season, with Steelers RBs coach Eddie Faulker suggesting about seven fewer plays per game as a reasonable target, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports The idea is to take Harris off the field mostly on plays where he wouldn't get the ball anyway, though that could be a strategic disadvantage if the trend is strong enough for opponents to exploit. Last year as a rookie, he led all running backs in snaps (980), snap share (83.5 percent), snaps per game (57.6) and touches (381), with sizable leads in every category apart from the last one as Jonathan Taylor got 372 touches. Harris may see a bit less playing time this year, but he still figures to be in the range of 20 touches per game, and it isn't clear how much the Steelers trust his potential backups Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Foot issue downplayed

    Coach Mike Tomlin noted that Harris' foot got stepped on during Monday's practice, but the coach added that it "shouldn't be a major deal," Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Given Tomlin's comments, we'll consider Harris day-to-day for now. Next up for Pittsburgh's backfield reps in practice as long as Harris is sidelined or limited is Benny Snell, with Anthony McFarland, Jeremy McNichols and Mataeo Durant also in the mix.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Expects more rest this year

    Harris doesn't expect to get quite as much playing time this upcoming season, but he did say he'll still be on the field a lot, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "I will be on the field a lot - but on certain downs, I will not be on the field," said Harris. "Just (pick my spots), I guess. Extra rest." Harris led NFL running backs in snaps (980) and touches (381) last year, returning first-round fantasy value as a rookie while averaging only 3.7 YPC and 6.3 yards per reception (4.4 per touch). To be fair, a poor offensive line was a big part of that, and QB Ben Roethlisberger's struggles didn't help. The problem for 2022 is that Harris again may have to deal with lousy O-Line and QB play, in which case he'll need all the touches he can handle to achieve numbers similar to last year's. That's certainly possible, as is a major efficiency improvement, but Harris seems to be saying that he anticipates slightly lower snap shares this season. Last year, he was at 83.5 percent, with seven games of 94 percent or higher. If not for a Week 12 blowout and a minor injury Week 18, he might've hit 90 percent snap share for the year. Regardless of the big-picture plan for this season, there still may be weeks where Harris flirts with 90-plus percent, especially if the Steelers don't do anything to upgrade the unproven group of backup RBs behind him (Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland, Trey Edmunds, Mataeo Durant and Jaylen Warren).

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Provides unimpressive final line

    Harris (elbow) rushed 12 times for 29 yards while catching both of his targets for a loss of one yard and losing a fumble in Sunday's 42-21 loss to the Chiefs. Harris was able to suit up after injuring his elbow in the Steelers' regular-season finale, but a balky elbow can't explain away being stonewalled by the defense as a runner. Onlookers can probably attribute the lost fumble to the rookie's injury, as he safely secured every single touch during his first turn in the pros. The 2021 first-round pick finished the regular season with 1,667 combined yards and 10 combined touchdowns as the Steelers' workhorse over 17 games, giving him starter's appeal across all formats based on volume alone. However, a sub-par 3.9 yards-per-carry mark left much to be desired in terms of his abilities as a runner. Perhaps the spread nature of Pittsburgh's offensive scheme with Ben Roethlisberger under center handicapped the young back. Either way, we will see how Harris responds to potentially becoming the focal point of a new-look Steelers squad that will likely be without its leader of the past two decades.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Set to resume practicing Friday

    Harris (elbow) remained a spectator for Thursday's practice, but head coach Mike Tomlin said the running back will be back on the field for Friday's session, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Tomlin mentioned that how Harris fares in Friday's workout will be telling for the rookie's availability for Sunday's wild-card game in Kansas City. Harris proved supremely durable during the regular season, approaching each of the Steelers' 17 contests without an injury designation while finishing with a league-high 381 touches (307 carries, 74 catches). However, after injuring his elbow early in Pittsburgh's Week 18 win over Baltimore, Harris could be at risk of taking a questionable tag into the playoff opener if he's anything less than a full participant at Friday's practice.

  • Steelers' Najee Harris: Limited production in Week 18

    Harris rushed 11 times for 28 yards while hauling in all four of his targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 16-13 OT win over the Ravens. Harris sustained an elbow injury in the first quarter of Sunday's regular-season finale but was able to play through the issue for most of the game. The 23-year-old struggled to generate much efficiency, but he helped lead the Steelers to the win -- and a likely postseason berth -- with a 15-yard run late in overtime. Harris appeared in all 17 games during the regular season of his rookie campaign, and he had 307 carries for 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns while securing 74 of 94 targets for 467 yards and three touchdowns.
