Najee Harris continues to lead all running backs in this area of the field. Turning -16 air yards into the fifth-most receiving yards in this section of the field is pretty impressive. Cooper Kupp continues to be rock solid in 2021 and shows up at the top of this list, along with CeeDee Lamb and DJ Moore. Travis Kelce is the only other non-WR on this list besides Harris.

We’ve seen quite a shakeup in this list over the past couple of weeks. We now have three tight ends appearing in the top 10 with Dalton Schultz sitting atop the list. Leonard Fournette is the only running back on this list. Similar to Harris in the short-left section of the field, it’s rather impressive that he’s turned -14 air yards into 138 receiving yards. Here’s a look at some of the most prominent names in the short passing game and their outlook for this weekend.
