Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) is officially active for the Week 14 game on Thursday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: Harris popped up on the injury report with a knee issue on Tuesday and did not practice to close out the week, so it's possible he's playing at less than 100 percent. Harris has scored in three of his last five games and is seeing enough of a workload to remain a flex option.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 14, according to sources Thursday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: Harris is listed as questionable, but it appears he will give it a go for Thursday night. Managers should temper expectations for Harris considering the injury and the tough matchup against New England. He's a fringe RB2 option this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Harris likely will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He can be a starting fantasy option if he plays, but Jaylen Warren will see a boost in his value if Harris is unable to play.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) was added to the team's injury report and did not practice with a knee injury on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Harris is not known to have suffered an injury in Week 13 - he was on the field during the team's final offensive drive - so perhaps the Steelers are playing things safe with him ahead of the Thursday night game with the New England Patriots. It is also entirely possible Pittsburgh takes it easy on him or holds him out entirely for a game they should win. Jaylen Warren would be set up for a potentially big day if Harris doesn't play.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren leads all qualified rushers with a broken tackle every 6.5 rush attempts in 2023, according to Pro Football Reference. Interestingly, teammate Najee Harris ranks third at 7.7.
Huddle Up: The duo is keeping impressive company, as the only other players who are part of the sub-10 club are James Conner (7.6), David Montgomery (8.8), Jahmyr Gibbs (9.0), Jonathan Taylor (9.4) and Travis Etienne (9.4). While both Pittsburgh backs are doing enough with their touches recently to be considered low-end RB2 options, Warren has possessed the most fantasy upside this season.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren told reporters on Monday, Nov. 13, that head coach Mike Tomlin told him he would start over Najee Harris the night before the team's Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers. "He did kind of mention the night before that whatever had transpired throughout the team, he was saying that he was going to announce me and that I'm deserving of it," Warren said.
Huddle Up: At least for one game, the starter's title meant little as Harris handled the first two touches by a running back in the game and ended up finishing the drive with a rushing score. Harris held a 19-17 edge in touches over Warren, who outgained his backfield mate 110-96. It would seem as though fantasy managers can expect a fairly even split between the two moving forward. The more explosive Warren deserves a slight nod over Harris most weeks, but both backs should be worthy of low-end RB2 consideration moving forward.
