Najee Harris has been a fantasy stud right out of the gate as a rookie. He heads into Week 10 with a delicious matchup against the struggling Detroit Lions.

He's now given fantasy managers a cause for concern, though, after popping up on the injury report.

Harris was limited at Thursday's practice with a foot injury. He fully participated on Wednesday, which adds further mystery to the situation.

Najee Harris Fantasy Outlook

Harris is coming off of a productive game against the Chicago Bears, handling 25 touches (22 carries plus 3 receptions) for 78 yards from scrimmage and 1 touchdown.

Pittsburgh hasn't been afraid to lean on the rookie right away. He's averaging a whopping 23.8 touches (18.8 attempts plus 5.0 receptions) per game. He's converted that volume into 103.7 yards from scrimmage per game and 6 total TDs while ranking as RB4 (tied with Joe Mixon) in PPR scoring.

Harris being a late-week addition to the injury report is certainly a reason to worry. His situation is worth monitoring.

But if the rookie can go, he'll be in position to feast. Detroit has given up the second-most PPR points per game to RBs this season, making Harris a serious boom candidate in Week 10.
