Jaylen Warren Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals with a hamstring injury. That leaves Najee Harris to dominate backfield work. We'll update Warren's status when we learn more.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that RB Najee Harris is dealing with "knee discomfort" but that it won't impact his status for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. We'll keep an eye on Harris throughout the week. Backup RB Jaylen Warren should be rostered in most fantasy leagues at this point.

Steelers RB Najee Harris ran for 99 yards on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Saints. He went without a catch on just 1 target. RB Jaylen Warren played his 2nd-largest snap share of the season (43%), matching Harris in routes run. Warren caught all 3 of his targets for 40 yards, ranking 3rd on the team in that category. Warren remained clearly behind Harris in the run game, taking 9 carries for 37 yards. Week 11 holds a challenging matchup with the Bengals.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin was asked on Tuesday about his backfield coming out of the bye week and said this: "...when we were talking about a division of labor and who's done what and who's done well, I know that was a topic of discussion and very evident in our tape review." Tomlin went on to praise RB Jaylen Warren. "We've gotten some awesome contributions from Jaylen and it's reasonable to expect that to continue," Tomlin said. "He's a quality back that's made some plays." We'd be very surprised if an undrafted rookie supplanted Najee Harris, a former 1st-round pick, as Pittsburgh's lead back, but it sounds like Warren could be in for a bigger role going forward. He's worth stashing as we wait to see what the Steelers' backfield looks like vs. the Saints this weekend.

Steelers RB Najee Harris managed just 32 rushing yards on 8 carries in Sunday's lopsided loss at Philadelphia. He watched RB Jaylen Warren (6-50) and QB Kenny Pickett (7-37) outproduce him on the ground. Harris did lead the team with 6 receptions but turned those into only 26 yards (4.3 per catch). After a Week 9 bye, Pittsburgh gets home dates with the Saints and Bengals.

Steelers RB Najee Harris didn't do a whole lot for your fantasy football lineup in Sunday night's loss to the Dolphins, but his workload was encouraging. Harris carried 17 times for 65 yards and caught 3 of 4 targets for 15 more. He played nearly 4 times as many snaps as rookie backup Jaylen Warren and ran a route on 61.2% of QB Kenny Pickett's dropbacks. That's Harris' highest mark of the season. Week 8 brings a difficult matchup (for the whole team) against the Eagles, followed by a Week 9 bye.

Steelers RB Najee Harris caught 1 of 2 Steelers TD passes in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. That came on 1 of his 2 catches for 7 total yards. Harris added a mere 42 rushing yards on 14 carries (3.0 per attempt). He did, at least, work well ahead of rookie Jaylen Warren, who totaled just 2 touches for 2 yards (both on the ground). Harris gets a tough Miami run defense in Week 7 and then a tough-all-over Philly matchup in Week 8.

Steelers RB Najee Harris managed just 20 yards on his 11 carries (1.8 per rush) in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Bills. He added 3 receptions for 16 yards (5.3 per catch) among 4 targets. Harris got pulled for the 4th quarter in a game Pittsburgh lost 38-3. Week 6 presents another tough overall matchup with Tampa Bay, though none looks as tough as Buffalo right now.

Steelers RB Najee Harris injured his knee and/or ankle late in Sunday's game vs. the Bengals and hasn't returned for overtime. We'll update his status when we know more. RB Jaylen Warren is in for Pittsburgh.

The Steelers list RB Jaylen Warren as the #2 RB on their Week 1 depth chart. It's confirmation that the undrafted rookie beat out RB Benny Snell for that job. Warren won't be a fantasy factor as long as RB Najee Harris is healthy. But he'd be the pickup if Harris misses time this year.

The Steelers released RB Anthony McFarland. The 2020 4th-rounder never seemed to make a push for the #2 RB job this offseason. Pittsburgh is rolling with RBs Jaylen Warren and Benny Snell behind RB Najee Harris.

Steelers RB Benny Snell started Saturday's 2nd preseason game against Jacksonville, working ahead of rookie Jaylen Warren. That's noteworthy because Warren has generated plenty of training-camp buzz. That included at least 1 Steelers writer positing this week that he believed Warren has already earned the #2 job. Saturday's usage, of course, doesn't necessarily mean that Snell remains the backup to Najee Harris. But it does mean we'll need to continue watching before anointing the new guy. Anthony McFarland is also in the mix for roles behind Harris. We'll see whether all 3 backup candidates make the regular-season roster.

DK Pittsburgh Sports' Dale Lolley believes Jaylen Warren has supplanted Benny Snell as the Steelers' #2 RB. Warren, a 5'8, 215-pound undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma State, has been the surprise of Steelers camp. He also looked good in the preseason opener, posting a 6-34-0 rushing line and 4-30-1 receiving. We'll continue to keep an eye on this depth chart. Of course, neither Warren nor Snell is a fantasy option without an injury to RB Najee Harris.
