Mike Tomlin has held steadfast on the idea that he wants a bell cow back. He’s simply not a fan of a committee, and has spoke on this on multiple occasions.
Well, he backed up his words by taking a workhorse in Najee Harris, despite other glaring needs… including their offensive line.
While the line is a huge need for the Steelers, I wouldn’t worry about it as much when it comes to Harris.
As long as he is on the field for the Steelers, the opportunity in terms of carries + targets will heavily outweigh help from the offensive line… at least from a fantasy perspective.
His floor is a 2020 David Montgomery-type situation in Year 1, except on a better offense. Here’s what I mean – all the opportunity in the world without being amazingly efficient.
Still a potential RB1, and will likely rank in my top-15 in 2021.
