The Steelers will already be without starting quarterback Kenny Pickett who suffered an ankle in Week 13. Starting running back Najee Harris was added to the injury report this week with a knee injury.

Najee Harris injury updates

Wednesday update: Harris is being listed as questionable for Thursday’s game.

Tuesday update: After not being included in the injury report on Monday’s estimated practice report, Harris didn’t practice on Tuesday. Pittsburgh will likely have a light day on Wednesday, but the news about Harris will be good to keep track of.

Fantasy football analysis

Harris heads into this week as the RB28 in half-PPR scoring formats. He has lost a lot of his work to backup running back Jaylen Warren (RB26), but has started to be featured more since offensive coordinator Matt Canada was fired.

The Patriots are having a bad year, but their defense has played well. They are allowing middle-of-the-road numbers to opposing running backs. Still, if Harris is healthy and active, he can be started in 12-team leagues or larger. Warren will have value in 10-team leagues or larger solely because he is healthy and has pass-catching upside in case this game comes down to the wire.
