2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Much has been said and written about the physical transformation LeíVeon Bell underwent between his rookie season in 2013 and his dynamic sophomore campaign last year. He went from one of the leagueís biggest plodders (3.5 yards-per-carry in 2013), to a forceful, patient, home-run capable back that ran for a strong 4.7 yards-per-carry in 2014. The thing is, Bell just didnít improve drastically on the ground, he wound up being the second leading receiver on the team with 83 receptions, and was second in the entire NFL with a total of 373 touches (yards + carries). Throw in 11 total touchdowns (he only had one rushing score going into Week 11), and you have the making of an absolutely elite fantasy season in any format. With his dual threat capabilities, he was one of the best weekly bets for production, as he only had one game all year where he scored single-digit fantasy points. So is the 23-year old ready to repeat his fantasy magic?

It certainly wonít be easy as heís set to miss the first two games of the season due to suspension. That is a big factor fantasy owners drafting at the top of the first round will have to think about when they consider Bell. Owners drafting Bell will need to add extra talent at the running back position to get through the first two weeks. But for the long haul, I actually think the missed games could help Bellís overall production. Taking a quick look at Weekís 15-17, it seems the seasonís workload may have got to him. He averaged 2.4, 3.5, and 2.5 yards-per-carry in those final three games, while suffering a significant knee sprain that cost him the Wild Card game. Iím inclined to think that Bell, could, and should be fresher down the stretch in 2015. Any missed games are surely going to impact his final numbers, but not enough to scare me away from Bellís high weekly floor. There is enough room for Bell to improve on his redzone numbers, and with little on the bench behind him, he should see the field plenty when he returns. Grab a runner earlier in your draft to get your through the first two games and donít be afraid to rely on Bell as your RB1.

Le'Veon Bell's suspension reduced to two games
ADP will certainly rise

Le'Veon Bell suspension reduced to two games by NFL. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bell's ADP will certainly rise more than it should on this news. He currently sits as the No.4 pick in 12-team leagues both in standard and the PPR variety. Bell will miss games against the Patriots and 49ers and will return in Week 3 to face the Rams.
