So Le’Veon Bell’s suspension is reduced to two games and just like that we’re supposed knee-jerk him up to the tippy-top of the first round. Go ahead sheep, do what Fabiano tells you to do, but for those of us who don’t want to start out the season 0-2 and miss the playoffs because of it, let’s keep Bell out of the top three. I still have Lacy, Lynch, and Peterson ahead of Bell. Two games. That’s 30 points of fantasy value ripped from your lineup. Do you really think 32-year old DeAngelo Williams will fill that void if you are able to get him via handcuff? I actually think Williams will be overvalued this year because owners KNOW you have to take him as a handcuff to Bell.

I’ll take sixteen games of Eddy Lacy, a pissed-off Marshawn Lynch, and an equally pissed-off Adrian Peterson every time. Besides, are we really supposed to believe that the Steelers will have the number one RB in Bell AND the number one WR in Antonio Brown? Prediction, neither of them will lead the league in fantasy points at their respective positions. I have Brown at number two on my WR board and that feels too high.
