Steelers RB Josh Harris will start if Le'Veon Bell can't play

ESPN - [Full Article]

Steelers RB Josh Harris is in line to start Saturday with LeVeon Bell probably still a couple of first downs shorts of questionable for the 8:15 p.m. ET game at Heinz Field.

Harris had just nine carries for 16 yards in five regular-season games, but the 5-11, 210-pounder ripped off a 59-yard run last Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.

A holding penalty wiped out much of the gain. But the play goes down as one of the Steelers’ most significant 3-yard runs in recent memory given the role Harris might play against the Ravens.

"Josh is ready," said Bell, who did some light running and rode a stationary bike on Wednesday. "I’ve been watching him all year and I know what he’s capable of. You got a little glimpse of him (in) the Bengals game. He’s explosive. He knows all of his assignments. He’s not out there thinking any more. He’s just playing football. He’s only going to get better."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Ravens are tough to run on, so we have Harris projected for about 74 yards on 18.7 touches.
