Fantasy Football Player Notes

2022 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Najee Harris Note

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.

Jaylen Warren Note

Former UDFA Jaylen Warren is in the driver's seat for the No. 2 RB role in the Steelers' backfield behind Najee Harris. The Oklahoma State product finished top-10 in broken tackle metrics in his draft class, and boasts pass-catching chops that should translate in fantasy-viability if he is ever given an opportunity to start. Although his size will limit him from being anything more than a weekly waiver wire plug-in, as opposed to a long-term answer at the RB position.
