News: 7 days agoHarris rushed 24 times for 81 yards and caught six of seven targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Spin: It wasn't pretty, as the rookie back had to grind for nearly every yard in this contest (3.4 yards per carry). The sheer volume of touches Harris received (30 total) helped buoy the bruising back to a big fantasy output. The first-round pick from this year's draft has turned into quite the dual-threat right off the bat, contributing 34 receptions and two receiving scores through six games to go along with his solid rushing production. Harris and the rest of the Steelers will get to rest during the upcoming bye before taking on the Browns in Week 8.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Harris was scooped up by Pittsburgh with the 24th pick of April's draft. Standout RB prospects from Alabama are nothing new, but Harris is a bit of a unicorn in that he's huge (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) and an outstanding receiver with a large catch radius (43-425-4 receiving line in 2020). Absurdly elusive for his size, Harris' 3.1 forced missed tackle rate is third best in this year's class during the past three seasons. Harris is severely lacking speed, but his combination of size, strength, tackle breaking, elusiveness and receiving ability supplies him with a high ceiling. He'll immediately slot in as the undisputed lead back. Pittsburgh's offensive line isn't as good as in year's past, but volume is king and Harris could push for 20 touches as soon as Week 1. He's immediately a fringe RB1 with elite upside.
