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.

Dale Lolley (@dlolley_pgh) on Twitter: "Fantasy Alert: It appears Jaylen Warren, as I reported earlier in camp, has supplanted Benny Snell as the Steelers' No. 2 running back."

FFToday's Take: Fantasy alert, indeed, Dale. There's a lot of work for the guy who steps up if anything happens to Najee Harris. Warren is a very relevant draft pick now.
