RB - PIT
Week 3 Outlook
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 14 times for 40 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Bengals in Week 3.
Harris didn't do much on the ground, but the real headline is his production in the passing game. The rookie running back caught 14-of-19 targets for 102 yards in the passing attack. Harris now has 20 catches through three games. He will be a low-end RB1 in Week 4 against the Packers.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 10 times for 38 yards and added five catches for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 27-16 loss to the Raiders in Week 2.
Harris scored his first NFL touchdown on a 25-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger. The rookie has struggled on the ground through two games, rushing for just 3.2 yards per carry, but he's offsetting that in the passing game. He will be a low-end RB1 in Week 3 against the Bengals.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 16 times for 45 yards and added a four-yard catch in a 23-16 win over the Bills in Week 1.
Harris was quiet in his NFL debut, although he was tackled on the Buffalo two-yard line on his lone reception. On the bright side, Harris was the only Pittsburgh running back to handle a carry in the win. He will remain the team's bell-cow in Week 2's home matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. Treat him as a low-end RB1 for that contest.
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris recorded seven carries for 22 yards during Thursday's game versus the Cowboys.
In Harris' first professional start, the Alabama product looked electric recording two long runs. The young back is the presumed Steelers starter coming into the season and is being drafted like it in fantasy drafts. With flashes of brilliance and clear knack for catching the football, it seems as if Harris is in line for massive workload and a top-12 PPR finish.
Steelers first-round pick RB Najee Harris will likely see the field in Canton. HC Mike Tomlin told reporters Tuesday, "He's a rookie. Man, he needs the process of game preparation and ultimately play. We've got four opportunities for him to do that.”
Fantasy managers have high expectations for Harris heading into the 2021 season, as they should. The once Alabama superstar was drafted into a near perfect situation where as a rookie they expect him to be a three-down back. Off of sheer volume he’s an ideal RB2 with RB1 upside. Look back to Le'Veon Bell's rookie season where he averaged over 22 touches per game, Tomlin always preferred using one primary running back. If that’s the case for Harris, the rookie running back could be a second-round steal even with a worrisome offensive line.
