2017 Outlook: Le'Veon Bell

Le'Veon Bell is playing on the franchise tag this season, and he's coming off core muscle surgery, but that's still a better scenario than the three-game ban Fantasy owners had to deal with last year with Bell. Expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Bell is known for being one of the most dominant running backs in Fantasy Football. He's got the perfect blend of size, speed and receiving skills, and he's on a team that's unflinching when it comes to giving him lots of work. His track record is proof -- he's been good for 10-plus Fantasy points in an unbelievable 85.3 percent of his games over the past three seasons! So why take him No. 1 overall in any draft? Because unlike other Fantasy stud running backs, Bell's 2017 schedule is thin on tough run defenses. Just make sure to draft his backup with a middle- to late-round pick. Expect another season with an average of 110 total yards per game and a slew of touchdowns.
