Harris has played one less game due to an early bye week, but he still is second in the entire NFL in targets at the RB position and sixth in total rush attempts. The workload that this rookie RB is seeing in this Pittsburgh offense is truly impressive and it shows no signs of ceasing any time soon. The Browns defense is only allowing 65.4 rushing yards per game on average this season, but they have been susceptible to receiving backs out of the backfield as they're allowing .6 receiving touchdowns to the position per contest. Harris should see plenty of work yet again and the matchup is favorable for him to find the end zone as a receiver in this one. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end RB1.

Najee Harris picks up receiving TD in Week 6

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris carried the ball 24 times for 81 yards and added 46 yards and a touchdown on six catches in a 23-20 overtime win over Seattle in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Harris couldn't get much going on the ground but he hauled in Ben Roethlisberger's only TD pass of the game in the first quarter. The rookie running back heads into his Week 7 bye with four total touchdowns and an impressive 34 receptions through the first six games of his career. The Steelers will face the Browns in Week 8 after their bye.
