Fantasy Impact:

Harris' impact on the field has varied greatly throughout his career in Pittsburgh. During his rookie year, Harris totaled 1200 rushing yards and just under 500 passing yards, but he has not been able to meet or surpass either of those marks in the subsequent years. While injuries have likely contributed to his inefficiencies, the Steelers haven't seen enough to option him for his fifth year. Harris looks to remain the early down and goal line back for the Steelers going into his final contract year. Meanwhile, running mate Jaylen Warren remains the more explosive option in the Steelers rushing attack as the offense gets a new starting quarterback and new offensive coordinator.
