Draft note
by John Paulsen
For a rookie running back, Harris landed in arguably the best spot possible. With James Conner gone, the Steelers have 12.8 vacated touches per game, and Harris figures to get all of that work and more. The last 10 first round rookie running backs who drew at least 10 starts averaged 284 touches for 1424 total yards and 9.4 touchdowns. The resulting 15.1 PPG (half-PPR) would have landed between Jonathan Taylor and Joe Mixon as last season’s No. 10 RB. The only real concern with Harris is the Steelers’ subpar offensive line.

PIT RB Najee Harris - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Bengals

Najee Harris scored his first NFL touchdown in Week 2 and once again saw a ton of time on the field. He has played 111 out of a possible 114 snaps for the Steelers through two weeks. The plan seems so far to get Harris around 15 or so touches and he got more use in the passing game in Week 2, catches five passes. Just his usage alone makes him a strong fantasy option and will get better as the Steelers figure out their offense and work out the kinks (and their offensive line improves).
