Running back

  • Steelers RB Najee Harris (foot) practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. He wasn’t listed on the final injury report and is good to go for Sunday. It makes sense to rank Harris closer to the RB1 borderline than usual with his health in question, but the Steelers’ second-year workhorse should still be starting in fantasy lineups of all shapes and sizes.
  • Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced in full all week yet is listed as questionable. A limited workload in his first week back would make sense, so I’ll be answering the majority of close start/sit questions involving Dobbins with the other guy.
  • Saints RB Alvin Kamara (rib) didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and is officially questionable. Mark Ingram (ankle) is also questionable but seems more likely to suit up after practicing in a limited fashion all week. Note that the Saints signed Latavius Murray earlier this week so expect a more-pronounced committee than normal without many fully healthy bodies available.
