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.Shady doesn't FEEL like the 4th best fantasy back, but that's where we're at.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
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.McCoy was right up near the top last season in ability, and despite missing a little time with injuries, he still finished as a Top-3 fantasy running back. How he will be used exactly with Rex Ryan out of town, I don't know, but he still was at the top of his game last year and deserves to be a top pick this year.
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.Buffalo's running game last season had the first tier all to themselves, and perhaps the second tier as well. Their running backs averaged half a yard per touch more than the next best team and they scored 6 extra TDs than #2 in the league. While Rex being gone means it is likely to take a step back, even a step back would warrant ranking McCoy among the top handful of backs again this season.

With no injuries or suspensions to worry about, Bell could average 30 points per game in PPR leagues. Auction Value $52Shady was excellent in 2016. The loss of Anthony Lynn will not sting, as McCoy should be used more as a pass-catcher in the Bills' new offense. Auction Value $35

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.Mike Gillislee is now in New England, which should mean more goal-line work for Shady. He should have at least one more vintage season in him at age 29. And if one of the top three should falter, McCoy has as good a chance as any to ascend to that place.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He'll have the most points per game, the question is does he play 16?I need to see how things shuffle out with the new coaching staff, but if the line stays the same he should have just as good a year as last year. I have the feeling the new additions at FB will vulture 4-6 TD's from McCoy, but there's a good chance he could get an extra 200-300 yards as well. All things equaling out, he'll be a RB1 if he stays healthy. Get J. Williams late in best-ball or deep roster leagues.
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.McCoy and the Bills running backs enjoyed a massive 2.56 yards before contact in 2016, which was 0.29 yards more than the next highest team. With Mike Gillislee now in New England, McCoy should keep his high workload, even with a new coaching staff in tow, as well as get a bit more goal-line work.
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. McCoy is an older player to monitor at this point, he turns 29-years old this year and he has 1,898 career carries and 382 career receptions. I think he has one more elite season in him, but his health needs to be monitored this off-season.
