RB: Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers
Despite losing his title as the team’s starting running back to Jaylen Warren in recent weeks according to head coach Mike Tomlin, Najee Harris has still been a key part of the Steelers’ offense. Harris has had at least 15 carries in three of his past four games, having scored a touchdown in each of the three games he earned at least 15 rush attempts.
Heading into Week 13, no running back has more rushes of 15-plus yards than Harris, who has also recorded 80-plus rushing yards in two of his past three games and now faces a Cardinals defense that ranks 30th in opponent rushing yards per game (140.1), 26th in opponent yards per rush attempt (4.5), and 29th in the NFL in opponent rushing touchdowns allowed per game (1.3).
The Cardinals rank 31st in opponent rushing attempts per game (31.4) thanks to constantly being in negative game script. Week 13 should be no different, with the Steelers being 6.5-point favorites in this game.
Regardless of sharing the backfield with Warren, there is room for both running backs to get home in an opportune matchup. Harris is primed for a huge Week 13 performance against the Cardinals.
