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 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs Cleveland
LeVeon Bell had a pretty good start to his Jets career with 23 touches for 92 yards and a touchdown. His value is very good in PPR leagues because the Jets did use him as in a similar way as the Steelers used to. One issue was Bell did injure his shoulder but he is expected to play Monday.

Bell will face the Browns who are 21st in aFPA to running backs after the first week. The Jets might have to rely even more on Bell as QB Sam Darnold will not play. This hurts his value because Cleveland knows the Jets will have to ride Bell.

Bell is still a good play for Week 2, but probably only a high-end RB2. He will get the touches but it will be hard to have great results with the Browns game-planning to stop him will be their main priority.
