I like Gibson, it's not that I don't. The issue is that he's not heavily involved in the passing game, and he topped 94 yards on the ground just twice all of last season, with both of those games coming against the Cowboys. In fact, 28.7 percent of his fantasy points in 2020 were against the Cowboys. I can certainly see Gibson finishing higher than my ranking, but those above him have either (a) a more consistent track record, or (b) less question marks. He scored a touchdown once every 15.5 carries last year, a number that's surely to go up.Running backs are at their prime when they enter the NFL, which makes them the most valuable their rookie season, unlike quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends. Because of that, Harris, who takes over as the Steelers' lead back, is someone you want to have on your roster. The Steelers are a team that hasn't been shy about giving running backs 18-plus touches per game with Mike Tomlin at the helm. You don't draft a three-down back like Harris in the first round and put him in some timeshare. I wouldn't be surprised to see him average 20-plus touches per game, which puts him smack dab in the middle of the RB1 conversation.
Kyle Yates

After being barely utilized as a runner in college, Gibson came out on fire in his rookie season. He averaged 4.7 YPC and 11 rushing touchdowns, which is absurd for a player who saw only 33 total carries in college. Heading into 2021, the sky's the limit for Gibson and what he can do with this experience to his name. He should receive a larger workload this upcoming season and this offense is going to be more potent due to the QB upgrade. You're going to have to pay up for Gibson and it's hard to take him over some more proven names, but this is a swing for the fences selection that has a very good chance of making it out of the park.One of the greatest discounts in all of fantasy football year-over-year is rookie RBs in redraft leagues. The casual fantasy manager isn't quite sure about who this player is and what they bring to the table, so they choose to focus in on players that they do know instead. Harris - most likely - isn't going to ascend into the top-10 of ADP (Average Draft Position) this off-season, but he has a very good chance of finishing in that range when it's all said and done. The Steelers invested significant draft capital in this player due to needing to balance out the offense and Harris has the size and skillset to shoulder a huge workload for this offense. He's a fantastic receiver out of the backfield and Big Ben should be looking to funnel targets his way repeatedly. If you can snag Harris as your RB2 in fantasy football this season, that's a winning strategy. My Very Early Projection: 285-1167-8 rushing & 59-482-2 receiving.

Well this call could make me look really smart or really foolish. Just an fyi- the smart money is on foolish haha! Antonio Gibson is still recovering from a turf toe injury he suffered in late 2020. That's a concern. If he's okay, then things could get real interesting. Coach Ron Rivera said he wants him to be more involved in the passing game (Note- he played WR in college). He came into the NFL really raw as a RB which means he could make a huge leap. Gibson is one of the few RBs with major three down upside if things break right, well assuming it's not his toe. He's big (220 lbs), fast (ran a 4.39 40 yard dash), and a natural playmaker. Can his toe hold up? That's the million dollar question? If it does, lookout! Gibbaay!!!Najee Harris is such an impressive RB. He is a three down RB who has the goods and fights for every yard. The bad news is the situation he's in. While Pittsburgh will make him an every down RB, their line is garbage and Big Ben is washed up. I don't see this turning out well. The 2nd/3rd round is too high for a guy on an offense which figures to struggle.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gibson averaged 13.2 fantasy points per game in his rookie year and he should have a lot of upside in his second year if Washington ups his usage in his second year.Harris should enter the league as a 3-down back with instant fantasy appeal. I see him as a RB2 with upside, depending on how Big Ben looks in 2021 and if their offensive line can play better this year.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
More positive game-scripts & TD opportunities, plus Scott Turner could just decide to give Gibson the full CMac bellcow treatment he so deserves. -- BUT this latest toe news is aggravating.Absolutely perfect landing spot: his three-down abilities will be utilized to the fullest under Mike Tomlin. Immediate Top-5 upside already.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Talk about a match made in fantasy nerd heaven. Harris to the Steelers fits like a glove, and though the offensive line was a major concern last season, the Steelers have pumped out good offensive lines season after season, and addition by subtraction might be in order. Either way, expect a newly much more timid Big Ben to check down to the big-bodied Harris over and over again, in addition to 15-20 carries a game.
