Najee Harris
Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Harris shouldered the bulk of the rushing load for the Tide in 2019. Harris rushed 209 times for 1,224 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground. By contrast, no other Alabama running back had even 100 carries. Harris finished fourth in the SEC in rushing yards, while he tied for second in scores on the ground. With Alabama losing Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs from the passing game, expect Alabama to rely even more heavily on the rushing attack in 2020. Harris averaged a stout 5.9 yards per carry as a junior, but he should be able to build on last year’s numbers this season. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Harris' NFL Draft status has been up in the air for awhile now, but now he has decided he will return for one more season. Harris will look to build on a terrific junior season in which he rushed for 1,224 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 304 yards receiving and another seven touchdowns through the air.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Najee Harris split touches with Damien Harris and Joshua Jacobs in 2018, but should have the inside track to the bulk of carries in 2019 with both of those players now in the NFL. Harris still averaged 6.7 yards per tote last year, and his touchdown total figures to skyrocket from the four rushing scores he managed as a sophomore. Brian Robinson and Trey Sanders also figure to be in the mix, and Harris has not proven much of a pass catcher out of the backfield since coming to Tuscaloosa. Nevertheless, in this potent offense with a monstrous offensive line, Harris should be primed to approach 1,000 yards rushing and double-digit touchdowns if all goes according to plan.
