Last season, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Najee Harris took the NFL by storm as one of the true bell cow running backs in the league. Carrying the ball 307 times (2nd-most), he accumulated 1,200 rushing yards (4th) with seven scores on the ground (T-14th) in 17 games. He also caught 74 passes on 94 targets for an additional 467 receiving yards with three more scores.
Overall, his 381 touches led the entire NFL.
Heading into the 2022 campaign, he will be relied on to lead Pittsburgh’s offense once again, this time with a new quarterback under center. However, it's much more likely than not that the team will look for ways to reduce his workload to preserve his health and overall efficiency.
After simulating every game of the upcoming season 10,000 times, BetQL’s NFL Model projects Harris to accrue the following stats.
