He's back, but this time it's probably going to be a lot less exciting. He'll be playing behind a much lesser offensive line, with a much lesser quarterback, in a much worse offense. He's going to get plenty of touches, but we can say that about a lot of running backs. The question is - what's his upside in a low-scoring offense? Adam Gase's offenses have been lacking in both overall plays and overall scoring. Did you know that Dolphins running backs scored 10 rushing touchdowns over the last two years... combined? Bell is a relatively safe pick due to the touches he'll get, but he lacks the upside you want out of a high first-round pickYou have to love the landing spot for Beckham as he's now tied to a franchise quarterback who's deadly accurate. The issue is that the Browns are a franchise that has tons of talent on the defensive side of the ball, which may limit the amount of pass attempts to go around. Still, you don't trade for Beckham and not use him. He may not belong in the elite tier in year one with the Browns, but it shouldn't shock anyone if he finishes there. He is an outlier
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bell has been a stud throughout his career, so why would he stop now? I actually like him plenty this year, but an entire year off and playing in a new system behind an inferior o-line...those could be problems.Beckham is in the best situation he's had yet in the NFL. Now he just needs to stay healthy.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
The Jets, by most metrics and observational analysis, were among worst run blocking O-lines in '18, so Bell will be facing a headwind that he rarely endured in PIT - but sheer volume, elite, versatile talent should help him return Rd 1 value44 TD in 59 career games, 3rd-most among WRs in NFL history thru 59 games - quicks, route-running, hands, YAC ability should be match made in heaven with QB Mayfield's accuracy, anticipation
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Despite sitting out a year and moving to a new team, Bell should once again be an RB-1 for fantasy purposes. Yes, there are plenty of red flags. Adam Gase's teams are notorious for running few plays, the Jets have offensive line issues, and the Dolphins never let their most talented running back, Kenyan Drake, have enough work. But Bell's certain involvement in the passing game gives him an incredibly high floor, and he should most likely give you quality fantasy production week-in and week-out. Don't expect him to put up the numbers that he did with the Steelers. But he won't have to in order to earn his draft price.If you said a couple of years ago that Beckham Jr. would move from the Giants to the Browns and be seeing a massive upgrade in both offense and quarterback play, you would have sounded ridiculous. There's no way to fully understand how the Browns offense will unfold, given the new offensive coordinator and the fact that they probably won't need to throw quite as much with an improved overall defense. But none of that really matters. Beckham has basically averaged a 1500-yard, 12-touchdown pace since he entered into the league, and should now have an elite quarterback throwing him the ball. There are plenty of mouths to feed in Cleveland and Beckham has battled injuries in his career, but don't kid yourself. He's going to have a monster year.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
This is Bell's backfield and will be fed early and often. Gase also likes to move RBs to the outside now and then, which plays right into Bell's strengths.If OBJ stays healthy we may be talking about him being the first receiver off the board next season. I don't think we need to talk about how good OBJ is, we have seen the numbers he can put up with Eli Manning, this connection could be and likely will be game changing.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 OBJ was 13th last season in True Target Value with Eli Manning throwing him the ball. If those targets came from Baker Mayfield instead, OBJ would have been the 9th WR. Now factor in that Mayfield was 12th in True Throw Value in his ROOKIE SEASON and OBJ becomes a top-3 WR option with potential for for a WR1 finish.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Bell was as great of a fantasy asset as we've seen the prior five years before his holdout last season. With that said, he is moving from one of the best offensive lines and running schemes to the absolute worst of both. He will still see 300+ touches, of course, but without the Steelers offensive line, fantasy owners will likely be shocked at how inefficient Bell will be.You can argue that there is not a more talented receiver, or even football player in the league. Now that Beckham is in Cleveland with the next great quarterback, his situation is much better than he's ever seen before. With those two in mind, he has as good of a chance as anyone to finish as the WR1 but with soft tissue injuries in his past, he comes with the most risk of any elite receiver too.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Bell should see a ton of carries, but he no longer has Big Ben, Antonio Brown or one of the best offensive lines in the NFL to help his fantasy value. He is a high-end RB2 that is going to see a lot of touches, but not the efficiency he has had in past years.Beckahm Jr. is still one of the best wide receivers in the NFL and playing with QB Baker Mayfield is going to really help his fantasy production in 2019.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Bell now switches to the AFC East with the New York Jets and new Head Coach, Adam Gase. Gase has a tendency to run a RBBC, but has admittedly never had a talent like Bell before. This situation is murky and has me concerned. We may look back at Bell's numbers next offseason and say he performed well, but it didn't necessarily lead to consistent production week in and week out. Bell's risk is built into his ADP though and I would feel comfortable with him as my team's RB2.The general public has seemingly forgotten about OBJ and his talents and abilities when he's on the field. Injuries marred his season last year, but he's the best wideout in the game when he plays. Now, he heads to a situation with an ascending QB talent in Baker Mayfield who can take full advantage of OBJ's quickness and route-running ability. Baker's going to latch onto Odell early and the sky's the limit for him in 2019.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Bell sat out the entire 2018 season, then changed teams. That adds a bit more risk than we are used to with Le'Veon. The once consensus top 5 pick now comes with a second round ADP. I preach avoiding risk in the early rounds of the draft, which makes me hesitant in drafting Bell. Not only has he been away from football for a year, but he leaves a top 5 offense to join a team that ranked 23 in points per game and 26th in plays per game. While I do expect this offense to take a step forward this season, it's still a downgrade for fantasy. His 2nd round ADP comes with massive upside...but there are also a lot of unknowns. My current projection has his value as a late second round pick, which is probably where I'd feel comfortable taking him.People are a little too scared of Odell this season. His target market share is likely going to decrease...but he's also going to a different market. Odell moves from a bad offense, with a bad QB, to an elite offense, with an already elite QB. Also, is there really that much competition for targets? Sure Landry will get his, but Njoku's never been a target hog, and they are likely to use Chubb on most downs ahead of Duke (assuming Duke is still even on the team come week 1). Behind them all you have is Antonio Calloway, Rashard Higgins and Damion Ratley. People can't honestly expect those guys to take that many targets away from Odell! Is he a first round pick? Probably not. But he's a great second round pick, and I wouldn't be shocked at all if he were to finish in the top 3.
