regression in targets coming, lot less check downs, safe as they come though 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 6/29 Update: Likely facing a 6+ game suspension -- Mark Ingram is a VERY cheap (re:Free) handcuff so you can "own the backfield," but missing over 1/3 of the season makes Kamara a risky bet in the first 2 rounds now, even with his stretch run ceiling. No Sean Payton, but Kamara benefits greatly from Jameis returning. He was the RB4 in PPR PPG (19.98) w/ Winston @ QB & this was in an atrocious attack. With MT & Olave now in town, this could be a monstrous rebound for AK41.
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
I will likely be alone on this one, but seeing Najee last year become the entire offense was truly amazing. This offense is not going to wow anyone this year but they will lean heavily on Najee for offensive production, though this workload may not be great on his body I think he is still young enough to stay healthy despite the incredible volume he will encounter. He had the 2nd most Rush attempts and the most receiving targets of any RB, and yet was 15th in carries inside the 5 behind AJ Dillon. This has to improve next season. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Volume and versatility are the selling points, while the QB situation is the biggest question markWas Top 5 among RBs in PPR FPPG in 1st season sans Drew Brees, so the only question is availability, be it suspension or injury (7 DNPs in past 3 seasons)
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
If there is any running back that could potentially de-throne Derrick Henry as the poster child for the "volume is king" mantra, it's Najee Harris. The Steelers rookie running back managed a league-leading 381 touches in 2021, and finished as the RB4 in half-point scoring as a result. The volume he is going to see in 2022 will ensure he is one of the safest running backs available in fantasy football. Still, the issue with Harris pertains to his true upside potential in an potentially capped offense led by a rookie quarterback. An immobile Ben Roethlisberger was a check-down target machine to Harris in 2021 which may not be the case in 2022. And despite all of his total raw touches, Harris only saw 37 touches (22nd) in the red zone and scored six red-zone touchdowns. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
When you consider that Harris had one of the worst offensive lines and a veteran quarterback well past his prime, it is amazing he tallied 1,612 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in the fantasy season. He should be a first round pick for years to come and he has a ton of upside if the Steelers line improves in 2022.Kamara struggled with injuries and ineffective quarterback play in 2021 and still finished the fantasy season with 1,175 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. He should be back as a RB1, although Kamara was arrested in Las Vegas in February and charged with battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. That could lead to a suspension, which would impact his fantasy stock.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 Last year Alvin Kamara showed no signs of slowing down, logging his first 200-plus carry season. In the six full games with Jameis Winston under center, he was the RB5 in fantasy, averaging 23.2 touches and 5.5 targets (26.4% target share). Over that span, he was seventh in targets and sixth in receiving yards among all running backs. Kamara is a top 5-10 option at the running back position.
