Jaylen Warren, Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Arizona)

This is one of those games where if you have anyone on the Steelers, I would insert them against a rough Cardinals defense.

Jaylen Warren, more than Najee Harris, is the running back to target in fantasy football for the Steelers this season. Like Singletary, he is coming off an average game against the Cincinnati Bengals but he posted back-to-back 100-yard efforts in the two weeks before that.

For running backs with at least 90 rushing attempts this season, Warren leads the entire league with a 5.8-yards per carry average. He can also chip in as a receiver and has caught at least three passes in all but two games this season.

He's also catching the right opponent this week in Arizona as only Denver has allowed more fantasy points to running backs this season.

In his last two games played at home, Warren has rushed for 189 yards on 26 carries with a touchdown. The Cardinals will have a tough time slowing him down this week and if he is on your roster, he is near the top of the list of must-start running backs this week.
