The top spot is a fight between Bell and David Johnson this season, and I'm giving a slight edge to Bell. The Steelers should come back strong in 2017 and get some help back on offense, which should keep Bell in good spots all season long.Freeman showed that he has the ability to be a lead back, but Tevin Coleman isn't going to go away anytime soon. If the Falcons' offense regresses at all, Freeman could be squeezed a little in 2017.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Had Le'Veon Bell been active for all 16 games, his pace would have put him at over 2,500 all purpose yards. Don't buy too much into the fact that he has several injuries, as all running backs inevitably will. Rather, consider that if he remains healthy, he will carry you to the playoffs.With Kyle Shannahan gone, the Falcons' offense shouldn't be expected to perform at the near-record pace they put up last season. With that being said, Freeman has established himself as one of the most steady and reliable three down backs in football. Just because Coleman is present doesn't mean he won't lead all backs in fantasy points for the second time in three seasons this year.

Bell is a monster but his contract issue and constant suspension/injury woes always concern me. That all still can't keep him from being a top 3 RB. 
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
With no injuries or suspensions to worry about, Bell could average 30 points per game in PPR leagues. Auction Value $52Freeman has 26 touchdowns in his last two seasons. Don't worry about Coleman's role, Freeman is the guy. Auction Value $42

Le'Veon is either going to get a long-term deal before July 17 or be tagged with a 12.1 million franchise tender. Either way, he'll be out to remind everyone who the best running back in the league is. On a PPG basis you can't do better--but Bell comes with more injury risk than Johnson so he slides in at #2 for me. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Steelers gave the franchise tag to Bell, so he will be in Pittsburgh at least through 2017. The only reason I have him behind Elliot and Johnson is durability concerns and two prior suspensions under the league's substance abuse policy. Freeman did play in a committee last year with RB Tevin Coleman, but still finished with 1,079 yards rushing, 462 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns. He should remain a RB1 this year.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He'll have the most points per game, the question is does he play 16?How much does Coleman tap into his touches this year? Will there be a new OC with a new (less complicated) system? If Coleman wasn't in this same backfield Freeman would be top 3-4 RB's.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If Bell can stay on the field for all 16 games, it's quite possible that we see him break records. He's still yet to have a game in his NFL career with fewer than 7.8 PPR points. There's actually been just three of his 47 games with fewer than 10.9 PPR points.Freeman says he wants to be the highest-paid running back in the NFL, and he's got the chance in a contract year. Despite ranking 13th in carries last year, Freeman totaled the sixth-most fantasy points among running backs. After struggling a bit out of the gate, Freeman went on to score eight touchdowns in the final six regular season games. With Kyle Shanahan gone, the Falcons may go back to more of a one-back system.
