2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
A long commentary on Bell is hardly necessary. He is in the mix as the top overall fantasy player, and this will remain the case even if he holds out into training camp. After a smashing 144-yard 2016 debut against Kansas City in Week 4, Bell struggled on the ground in the next five games, as he was able to top 4.0 yards-per-carry only once. But his role in the passing game easily made up for it, as he caught 40, yes, 40 passes over that stretch. He started his dominant tear in Week 11 against Cleveland, culminating in a mind boggling 38-236-3 line on the ground against Buffalo.

There are two reasons why I'd hesitate to take Bell over David Johnson in any format. First, the lack of touchdown consistency is concerning. Sure, he ended up with 9 total scores in only 12 games, but he went a five-game stretch without sniffing the endzone, and only has one season in his career where he scored in double digits. Even though he and Johnson are both 25, Bell has much more wear on his frame, suffering several serious injuries to his lower body. Foot, ankle, knee, and groin injuries have ended his season early in recent years, and it's been quite some time Bell hasn't had to recover from off-season surgery of some sort. Extrapolated out to a full season, Bell would have had nearly 2,500 total yards and 12 touchdowns; simply ridiculous numbers. But those numbers were nearly matched by Johnson, AND he accounted for 20 scores. The bottom line is you really can't go wrong if get "stuck" with Bell, and he'll provide the centerpiece to many fantasy winning teams in 2017 if things go according to plan.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bell to report on Friday, Steelers day off
RB to end "holdout"
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 28, 11:30 am

Pittburgh Steelers
In somewhat a reversal, Le’Veon Bell says he will report to the team Friday, a day his teammates will not be there. Mike Tomlin will give the Steelers players off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They will return to work on Labor Day, when they finally will be reunited with Bell. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FFToday's Take: Bell has been absent from the team as he attempts to change running back market but he's always been expected to be ready for Week 1. He'll have a week to get ready for the regular season.
