Draft note
by John Paulsen
The 27-year-old Bell should return to action with a bellcow workload for the Jets, but there are a couple of red flags. New HC Adam Gase tends to use multiple backs, but he did have a pair of backs with 240+ carries (Knowshon Moreno in 2013 and Jay Ajay in 2016) in his six seasons as an offensive coordinator or head coach. Also, Gase reportedly did not want to sign Bell to a big contract, and Jets GM Mike Maccagnan was fired after the Draft in May. For what it’s worth, Gase seems to have put his feelings about the signing behind him saying, "Everybody can criticize the contract all you want, but he's here. When you get a chance to coach a great player, I'm excited for that opportunity." The final issue is the quality of the Jets’ offensive line, which was last in the league in Adjusted Line Yards (per Football Outsiders). Since Bell can also generate points as a receiver, this is less of a concern that it would be with more run-oriented backs.

NYJ RB LeVeon Bell - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Buffalo
LeVeon Bell had 29 touches last week against his old team but the results were mixed with 93 total yards from scrimmage and zero touchdowns. He probably wanted more, but the Steelers defense is pretty good.

Bell faces the Bills this week and Buffalo is ranked 18th in aFPA to running backs, In the season opener, Bell had 92 total yards against the Bills. Even with the favorable matchup, we saw Bell average only 3.3 yards per carry this season and his numbers were very average. Expect the same on Sunday as he ranks as an RB2 for Week 17.
