Harris finished last season with his third consecutive season with at least 1,000 rushing yards, eight total touchdowns, and 1,200 total yards, and still, it felt like a huge disappointment. Harris was the RB30, ranking 29th in snap share and 26th in opportunity share as he split with Jaylen Warren. Harris still finished sixth in carries and eighth in red zone touches among backs, but he saw his pass game usage plummet with only a 7.9% target share (33rd) while ranking 49th in route participation. Harris's stats were helped by the fact that Pittsburgh leaned heavily on the run down the stretch. This could happen again in 2024, but it's not for certain, and don't be surprised if Warren eats into Harris's work further. Harris is an RB3/flex option in 2024.

Najee Harris changes diet this offseason

Najee Harris reportedly changes his diet to slim down this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Harris had the fifth-year option in his rookie contract declined by the Steelers, so he has a lot to play for this season. “It’s all fueling his fire to have an even better season than last year and prove a lot of people wrong,” said Harris' trainer Josh Scott. “There's a lot of people that hate on him for whatever reason, but he's been as consistent as you can be. He’s durable. I think he's going to continue with that. I mean, contract season, that pretty much speaks for itself.” Harris lost about seven pounds this offseason and has been “extremely clean — almost obsessively clean — with his diet.” He still figures to share the workload with Jaylen Warren in the Steelers backfield this season.
