2022-2023 Fantasy Football Review: Najee Harris

Welcome to our new feature where we recap a particular player’s journey in the 2022-2023 NFL Fantasy Football Season. This article features preseason expectations, draft expectations, overall season production, and critical moments during the season. We will do this for all 32 teams as we highlight a player per team.


After coming off a top 3 RB finish in 2021, a lot of hype was surrounding Najee Harris. The Steelers have been known to run the ball often so their RBs provide value. What makes Harris even better is his ability to catch the ball, especially for PPR leagues.


Najee Harris had big fans in fantasy as his ADP was 13.3, or basically a late 1st/early 2nd round pick. He was the 5th highest RB with the ones above him being the elite RBs in football. Owners were excited to have him as he would provide stability in an unpredictable position.


After ending the year as the 3rd best RB fantasy-wise in 2021, Najee ended the year 14th. For the first eight games of the season, he was steady but not enough. The most he had was 13.90 FP and 74 rushing yards. He had three TDs that span before the bye. After the bye, he was mostly steady with two breakout games where he scored more than 20 FP. He was getting more rushing TDs and was developing a connection with Kenny Pickett.


Week 11 vs Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals and the Steelers were in a shootout in Week 11. Najee Harris played his best game of the year when he rushed for 90 yards in 20 carries and two TDs. He ended the game with 27.60 FP. This performance showed his owners that he could still be a reliable option in fantasy.

Week 17 vs Baltimore Ravens

The Steelers played the Ravens in a must-win game in Week 17. The Steelers needed to win all their games to have a chance at the playoffs. On the ground, he rushed 22 times for 111 yards. On the passing game, he caught the game-winning TD with a minute left for 10 yards.
