Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Now that Rex Burkhead is out for the year, we have narrowed down the running backs available to syphon touches to Harris and White. While there's surely someone else to come in and take a few touches, these are the mainstays. There are plenty of opportunities to go around, especially when it comes to White, who has newfound targets. Why should we assume he inherits most of the opportunity that Burkhead had? Well, because Harris and Sony Michel have totaled seven targets... combined. That's not one week. That's all season, so they're essentially non-factors, and it's the reason White saw a season-high nine targets last week. He's never going to be someone who gets more than a handful of carries, but in PPR formats, he's certainly valuable. The Cardinals have allowed 4.39 yards per carry, which is essentially the league average, though it's important to note that they lost interior lineman Corey Peters prior to their Week 10 game. He was their best interior lineman, and it allowed the Seahawks to rush for 123 yards and a touchdown on just 21 carries. Harris is extremely similar to the downhill runner that Carlos Hyde is, so that performance bodes well for Harris. It's still worrisome that no running back has totaled more than 84 yards on the ground against the Cardinals, but the loss of Peters is huge. Harris should be considered a high-end RB3 who is a bit gamescript dependent with his lack of pass-game usage. Running backs haven't seen many targets against the Cardinals (6.3 per game), but when they do get targeted, they're averaging a solid 5.89 yards per target and 1.57 PPR points per game, which are both above the league average. There's been just one running back who's totaled more than 31 receiving yards due to the lack of targets, but White should get at least 10 opportunities in this game, making him a worthwhile RB3/flex option, especially in PPR formats. Think of him like a J.D. McKissic-like option.Whew boy. It seems like Sean McVay has made good on his promise to model his run game after Kyle Shanahan. We now have a three-man timeshare where none of them have finished with more than 10 touches in either of the last two games. Even worse, there are just five teams in the NFL who've held running backs to 3.50 or less yards per carry this season, and the 49ers are one of them. The 49ers are also one of five teams who've allowed less than 10.0 fantasy points per game on the ground to running backs. Running backs have combined to touch the ball just 24.9 times per game against them, which doesn't bode well for a three-way timeshare. There hasn't been a game this year where the 49ers have allowed more than 96 yards on the ground to an entire team of running backs. They've been less efficient through the air as a defense, but even when you add the receiving production in, they've allowed just 110.1 total yards per game to running backs. While Henderson looks better than the others, he's totaled just 15 carries over the last two games combined, so when you look at his limited involvement in the passing game, there's no way you can start him with confidence as anything more than a back-end RB3/high-end RB4. Brown is the primary receiving back but with Akers' involvement as of late, Brown has totaled just 12 touches over the last two weeks and is just a low-ceiling/low-floor RB4. Akers' role is growing but he's played just 30 snaps over the last two games combined. He's just a touchdown-or-bust RB4/5 option, and not a great one in this matchup.

The Cardinals are 14th against fantasy backs, Harris is a low-end RB2 at home this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Harris wasn't able to put up crazy yardage numbers in a favorable matchup, but he cashed in on a long touchdown run to save his fantasy day. Harris should continue to see the majority of the work on the ground even if Sony Michel is activated for this next game. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 again in week 12.
