Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren To Be Integral Part Of Offense

Wednesday, January 31, 12:30 PM

With the Pittsburgh Steelers hiring former Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith as their new offensive coordinator on Tuesday, it signals that they are committed to being a run-first team, which is good news for the fantasy stock of both running backs Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren. Smith underwhelmed in three years in Atlanta, but his body of work in the NFL shows he's well-positioned to utilize a roster that has a potentially dominant RB tandem, especially if paired with an above-average offensive line and serviceable quarterback. Smith's offenses in Atlanta and Tennessee consistently had some of the NFL's best rushing attacks. "I think we have two high-performing running backs in Najee and Jaylen and they, along with an improving offensive line, can be the foundation of success going forward," owner Art Rooney II said.

Ty Chandler News

Ty Chandler Totals 89 Scrimmage Yards In Season Finale

Monday, January 8, 12:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings running back Ty Chandler had a strong showing in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the Week 18 regular season finale. Chandler had a team-high 12 carries for 69 yards (5.8 yards per carry) and caught two of his three targets through the air for an additional 20 yards. The 25-year-old second-year back was impressive against a strong Lions run defense and proved down the stretch that the Vikings probably should have gone to Chandler more often earlier in the season over Alexander Mattison. In four starts to close out the year, Chandler averaged 4.87 yards per tote, 258 rushing yards and two touchdowns while also catching eight passes for 69 yards. Going into the offseason, Chandler's fantasy stock will be on the rise as he makes his case to be Minnesota's primary ball-carrier in 2024.
