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.

Najee Harris signs rookie contract with Steelers

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports thats Steelers first-round pick Najee Harris has signed his rookie contract.

Fantasy Impact

Harris is slotted to make $13.1 Million over four-seasons. He will be the bell-cow RB for the Mike Tomlin-led Steelers. Harris is a dynamic RB who has a great shot at totaling 300 touches in his rookie campaign. His ADP will start creeping up towards August, but he is a great target in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of all fantasy drafts.
