Analyst Thinks Jaylen Warren Will Receive Increased Share Of Red Zone Carries Under Arthur Smith

The division of labor in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ backfield was pretty clear last season. RB Najee Harris received 255 rush attempts and 38 pass targets while RB Jaylen Warren received 149 rush attempts and 74 targets. This was all while having a relatively even split of offensive snaps. Warren was more of a change-of-pace back who was checking in on third downs, while Harris tended to carry more of the early-down work.

Another area where Harris had the edge was his carries inside the red zone. One analyst thinks that could change with the new offensive system under OC Arthur Smith.
