2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
The old fantasy running back adage that "volume is king" certainly applied to Harris in 2021. The former Alabama runner led the NFL in touches with 381, single-handedly keeping the Steeler offense above water enough to sneak into the playoffs. A true workhorse, Harris played in all 17 games and led the NFL by being on the field for 85% of all the Steelers offensive snaps! It's not hyperbole to say he almost never came off the field, but this does fit with the Pittsburgh philosophy for their backs going back a few decades. With little on the roster behind him, and an unsettled quarterback position, I don't expect much to change for Harris on the volume front. Let's hope it doesn't, because it was volume, and not necessarily efficiency that helped Harris to that top-5 finish. Among backs with 200+ carries, Harris's 3.9 yards-per-carry average was 21st in the NFL, and despite the 74 receptions, Harris had only one game with more than 50 yards receiving. With the highest touch floor among any back in the league, and a high pick regardless of league scoring, the only question for Harris is how long he can sustain this touch count without breaking down.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jaylen Warren expected to play in Week 13
Hamstring injury

Steelers’ RB Jaylen Warren told reporters that doctors have cleared him to return from his hamstring injury and he expects to be able to play Sunday vs. the Falcons. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is significant considering Najee Harris missed a good portion of last week's game with an abdominal injury. It's unclear at this time if Harris will be available against the Falcons. Warren would be a solid RB2 if Najee misses this week.
