Forget about last week in Indianapolis, Gio should have a better game this week at home vs the Ravens.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Indy's D has been solid but Bell has been pretty darn good and he's at home so he's a RB1 still.
Gio was a bust last week and Ravens aren't a good matchup but he's at home and he normally doesn't have bad back to back weeks.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Colts are 16th against fantasy backs, if the Steelers are going to compete in this game, Bell has to have a monster game.
Bernard has a tough matchup against the Ravens 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense, but I still think you have to start him this week.
