  Steelers | Jaylen Warren ruled out    Sat Nov 26, 02:54 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) did not practice all week and was ruled out for Week 12 on Saturday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: This means Najee Harris is going to get a majority of the work in the Steelers' backfield. They play against the Colts on Monday night, and Fantasy GMs need to consider Harris an RB2 in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Warren's injury was described as 'not significant' by Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin. If he can participate on Friday, then perhaps Warren will get more touches behind Najee Harris.

  Steelers | Jaylen Warren likely 50-50 for Week 12    Tue Nov 22, 01:28 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is not dealing with a significant hamstring injury, but his availability against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12 is 'questionable' as of Tuesday, Nov. 22, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have been talking about using Warren more for some time now. He has seen more work as a receiving back, and we'll see if this hamstring injury keeps him out of action in Week 12.

  Steelers | Week 11 injury report for Pittsburgh    Fri Nov 18, 02:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. RB Najee Harris (knee), LB Marcus D.

Footballguys view: Harris coming off of the injury report is a great sign after he came out of Week 10 with knee discomfort. Consider Harris a high floor RB2 and Jaylen Warren a what-the-heck flex this week.

  Steelers | George Pickens involved in run, pass game    Sun Nov 13, 05:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR George Pickens caught three passes for 32 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. He also rushed for 23 yards and one touchdown on two carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Pickens was able to have a solid fantasy game on the back of running game contributions, but none of the passcatchers put up good numbers as receivers with the Steelers able to have a balanced offense playing with a lead against an inferior offense. Next week could be different against the Bengals coming out of their bye.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren rushed for 37 yards on nine carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. He also caught three passes for 40 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Warren wasn't a dud, but he was still clearly behind Najee Harris in the pecking order and he remains a desperation play only worth holding in the even of a Harris injury.

  Steelers | Najee Harris nearly reaches 100 yards    Sun Nov 13, 04:55 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris rushed for 99 yards on 20 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Harris wasn't as good as his stat line indicates, with one breakaway run responsible for a third of his yardage. At least he wasn't taking a backseat to Jaylen Warren. Still, Harris is more Flex/RB2 than the RB1 he was drafted as for fantasy. He's a low ceiling play against the Bengals next week.

  Steelers | Kenny Pickett posts 250 total yards    Sun Nov 13, 04:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett went 18-for-30 for 199 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. He also rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on eight carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Pickett was a plucky runner and he didn't make any big mistakes. The Steelers defense did the rest against a poor Saints offense. Pickett might not be a long term answer, but these wins also make replacing him next year with an early drafted quarterback more expensive. Pickett is a low ceiling emergency quarterback play in typical leagues and he's not going to get superflex teams over the hump. He'll attempt to fuel the Steelers to a sweep of the Bengals next week.

  Steelers | Jaylen Warren to get more touches    Tue Nov 8, 09:32 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Warren is expected to get more touches moving forward but RB Najee Harris will not be benched, per source on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs may have already scooped up Warren on the waiver wire. If he's out there, and you have the bench space, go ahead and put in a claim for the talented runner. He's worth at least a 'what the heck' flex as the Steelers try to figure out their offense.
