Crossroads Fantasy Football
Barring a terrible landing spot, another rookie I love. Maybe a bit of a shock for now but all these rookies typically move up by draft day, I'm just saving you the sadness of watching your "value" pick creep up boards into August.Kind of betting on him to not have a more productive year, because RBs typically don't as they age. This is standard RB decline, despite whatever excuses he has. Gase also seems to be pretty good at ruining fantasy value. HOPEFULLY his line play is better but we don't know that until we see it. Yes, they replaced everyone, but I feel like we get in off-season mode where we just assume everything and everyone will be better without any evidence of it. Volume should keep him afloat.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Taylor seeing 250 carries in 2020 isn't out of the realm of possibilities. If that happens, behind this offensive line, Taylor could easily finish as a top-15 RB this season.Adam Gase seems intent on taking the ball out of Bell's hands and splitting the work among his other running backs. Frank Gore and Lamical Perine are both going to eat into Bell's touches and it's going to limit his production. Bell is nothing more than a low-end RB2 in this Jets offense, despite being one of the more talented running backs in the NFL.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
He finished his 3yr college career with over 6000 yards from scrimmage and had more 200 yard games than sub-100yd games. Taylor behind the Colts O-line is just going to be nuts.Last year there were only 3 RBs to have 240+ rushing attempts and 75+ targets. I think we would be expecting some "positive" regression for Bell, especially in the TD department, but it seems that Gase is a subscriber to the "RB's don't matter" philosophy. I expect Gore, Perine or one of the journeymen the Jets have horded to cut into Bell's upside.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
 Bell's talent is slipping with age/mileage, and his environment took a hit going from PIT to NYJ - now HC Gase is looking to diminish his last bankable asset - workload

It sounds like Marlon Mack isn't going away, and the coaches are talking up Hines. I'm still excited about Taylor, but I've moved him down slightly. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's looking like a very good possibility for Taylor to see 250-plus carries in his rookie season. Some may think that's absurd, but Marlon Mack totaled 247 carries in just 14 games last year. Even if we give Mack the 100 carries that Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams combined for last year, it'd leave room for Taylor to hit the 250 mark. He's also running behind the best offensive line in football, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him rush for 1,200 yards in year one with his vision and speed in the open field. Taylor is right in the same territory as someone like Nick Chubb.You're going to see Bell fall down draft boards this year, and further than he should. That's odd for me to say, as Bell was someone I was avoiding like the plague in drafts. The difference? Expectations. Playing him as your first-round pick in your RB1 slot was never something anyone should've expected, especially behind that offensive line and in Gase's offense. While he's still stuck in Gase's offense, the offensive line was upgraded quite a bit this offseason, which should allow Bell more room to work. Even if he repeated his 2019 performance, that's RB2 production. There were just 11 running backs who produced RB2 or better numbers more often than him. Sure, he didn't have a ton of weekly upside, but he was safe. Now coming off the board outside the top three rounds, Bell is a value play.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Taylor ended up in a fantastic situation playing behind one of the best offensive lines in the league on a team that loves to run the football. Taylor should emerge as a RB2 with upside this week.Bell should benefit from the Jets adding T Mekhi Becton and WR Denzel Mims in the NFL Draft. They also added RB La'Mical Perine in the 4th round, but he should not be a huge threat to Bell's touches this season.
