Steelers WR Diontae Johnson racked up 11 targets among 28 Kenny Pickett pass attempts in Sunday's win over the Falcons. That marked a 39.3% target share, in a game that saw no other Steeler top 5 looks. TE Pat Freiermuth finished 2nd, catching 3 of 5 targets for 76 yards. RB Jaylen Warren was the only other Pittsburgh player to catch more than 1 pass. WRs George Pickens and Steven Sims matched Warren at 2 targets. Pickens caught just 1 ball for 2 yards. Next for Pittsburgh comes the season's 1st matchup with the Ravens, who have been playing the run tougher than the pass.

Steelers RB Najee Harris handled 17 of the team's 24 RB carries in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He had another productive outing, averaging 5.1 yards per rush (86 yards in all). Harris drew just 1 target, though, catching it for 6 yards. RB Jaylen Warren beat him with 2 receptions for 14 yards on 2 targets, while RB Benny Snell added an 11-yard catch on his lone target. Snell also rushed 6 times for 24 yards. Warren logged only 1 carry for 5 yards. He entered the day questionable with a hamstring issue. Week 14 brings a home date with a tough Baltimore run defense.

Steelers EDGE T.J. Watt (ribs) is active for today's game against the Falcons. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He was a full-go in practice all week and should be available for his usual role behind RB Najee Harris.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but confirmed afterward that he’ll play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is listed as questionable but put in a full week of practice, so he should be available on Sunday. Benny Snell (knee) is off the final injury report. Check out the updated projections for Pittsburgh’s backfield.

Steelers EDGE T.J. Watt (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He did manage limited practices throughout the week and seems likely to play. We'll check Watt's status Sunday morning -- barring some update before then.

Update: Steelers beat writer Nick Farabaugh of Pittsburgh Sports Now tweeted Friday: "Yeah, I think T.J. Watt will play."

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Benny Snell was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a knee. We'll check back on his status tomorrow.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) did not practice on Wednesday. While his injury reportedly isn't serious, Harris seems no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) was a full go on Wednesday -- confirmation that he'll be back for Sunday's game. We'd expect Warren to lead Pittsburgh's backfield in touches -- ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland -- if Harris sits.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren told reporters Wednesday that doctors have cleared him to return from the hamstring injury that cost him Monday night's game against the Colts. He expects to play Sunday against the Falcons. That should put him ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr. if Najee Harris (abdomen) is unable to go. The lack of clarity on Harris' status for that high-upside matchup makes Warren a solid waiver-wire addition where available.

Steelers RB Najee Harris' status for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons is "up in the air," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Harris' abdominal injury is not major, Rapoport adds, so this shouldn't be a long-term absence. But Pittsburgh's backfield is in flux right now with both Harris and Jaylen Warren (hamstring) iffy for Week 13. If both guys miss, Benny Snell figures to operate as Pittsburgh's lead back, with Anthony McFarland in a change-of-pace role.

Steelers RB Najee Harris left Monday's game against the Colts with an abdominal injury. He was ruled out at halftime. In his place, Pittsburgh will roll with Anthony McFarland and Benny Snell. We'll see if Harris is able to suit up for a Week 13 date with Atlanta.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Colts. The rookie lasted just 3 snaps last week -- and RB Najee Harris ended up racking up 20 carries and 6 targets on a 92% snap rate. He could be in for similar usage on Monday.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. His absence on Monday night vs. the Colts would leave RB Najee Harris in a workhorse role.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that RB Jaylen Warren's hamstring injury is "not significant" but labeled him "questionable" for Monday night's game vs. the Colts. We'll track the rookie's status throughout the week. His absence would be a significant boost for RB Najee Harris.

Steelers WR George Pickens caught 4 of 6 targets for 83 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He had 2 other targets wiped out by penalties, 1 an offensive hold and the other a defensive PI. Pickens also dropped a 2nd-half deep ball that would have added significant yardage to his line. WR Diontae Johnson matched Pickens' 4 catches but tallied just 21 yards. Next comes a potential pass-funnel matchup with the Colts and then the soft Atlanta defense.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth doubled his nearest teammate in targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. His 12 looks accounted for 28.6% of Pittsburgh's total pass attempts. Freiermuth's 8 catches also doubled the nearest Steeler, while his 79 yards trailed WR George Pickens' team lead. It's the 2nd 8-catch game among the past 4 for Freiermuth, who has seen 7+ targets in 4 straight and 7 of his 8 healthy outings for the year.

Steelers Kenny Pickett didn't do anything special in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but he did enough to sit 14th among fantasy QBs heading into the Monday night game. The rookie completed 25 of 42 passes (59.5%) for 265 yards (6.3 per attempt) and 1 TD. He missed connections with WR George Pickens on 2 other occasions that could have added quite a bit more -- 1 a drop by the rookie wideout. Pickett did hit Pickens for his only score from 24 yards out. He also took just 2 sacks and avoided turning the ball over. The QB added 14 yards on just 2 carries. The rushing has helped him be viable for 2-QB and superflex leagues. You should still be able to do better in 1-QB formats. Pickett and the Steelers visit the Colts and Falcons the next 2 weeks.

Steelers RB Najee Harris took 20 carries for 90 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Its' the 2nd straight game in which he has reached 20 carries, 90 yards and 4.5 yards per rush -- coming out of the Week 9 bye -- after Harris failed to reach any of those marks through the 1st 8 games. Harris also seemed to benefit from Jaylen Warren's early departure for a hamstring injury. Harris tied for 2nd on the team with 6 targets and 4 catches after losing receiving work to the rookie in Week 10. Harris gets a tough rushing matchup with the Colts in Week 12, but a much better spot at Atlanta in Week 13. His final 4 fantasy weeks find potentially tough matchups with the Ravens sandwiching a pair of softer rushing matchups: at the Panthers, home for the Raiders.

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 RB Najee Harris (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Harris was dealing with "knee discomfort," but it's obviously not a major issue. Harris should be ready for his usual workload vs. the Bengals on Sunday.
