Bell's contract will be a talking point until it isn't, but he will most likely be on the field for Week 1 as a Pittsburgh Steeler, and that's a good spot for him and his fantasy prospects, as his usage numbers are tremendous and his offensive line knows how to block for him.Barkley will get all the work he can handle either rushing or receiving, which makes him fairly fantasy proof, even on a team with a bad quarterback. Eighty receptions should be the over/under for a healthy season.
Nick Zylak

 I'm ranking Barkley ahead of Antonio Brown and I actually feel good about that. Barkley is one of the best prospects we have seen in quite some time and the Giants will not hesitate to use him in the passing game as well. Look for him to get enough volume to compete with Bell and DJ for a top 3 finish
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The sentiment for drafting Bell first overall is fair and understandable, but he is substantially more injury prone than Gurley and finished more than 60 points behind him last fantasy season too. With that said, the difference between Bell and the #3 fantasy player may be larger than the difference between #3 and #10.While this may not have been the smartest #2 pick for an NFL team, he is a surefire top-10 fantasy player even as a rookie. The Giants improved their offensive line and are expected to offer Saquon over 350 touches as a rookie. That is a recipe for one of the best rookie seasons in fantasy football history.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
400+ touches last year, regression in production is most likely scenario.Volume based ranking, and a brand new left side of the O-line should help matters for Barkley and the offense overall.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite having a less-successful year than his 2016 campaign, Bell still finished No. 2 among fantasy running backs. His contract dispute is not going away any time soon, which moves him down under Todd Gurley due to safety. We fully expect Bell to suit-up when the lights come on in Week 1, but there's always a chance he doesn't. Another added risk is that he'll have a new offensive coordinator in 2018, though Randy Fichtner doesn't appear to be shy running a fast-paced offense. When a team selects a running back with the No. 2 overall pick in today's game, they're going to use him, a lot. Last year in Pat Shurmur's offense, then-rookie Dalvin Cook totaled 71 touches in the team's first three games before getting hurt in Week 4. His pace was 379 total touches, which would have ranked No. 2 behind only Todd Gurley. Unlike Ezekiel Elliott, Barkley won't even be the opponent's biggest fear as long as Odell Beckham Jr. is on the field.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Bell was given the franchise tag and he averaged 17.4 fantasy points per game last year playing under the tag. He is a duel-threat runner and receiver that can dominate fantasy games. Barkley has all the tools to be the best running back in the league, but he is not playing behind the best line or on the best offense. He is still a RB1 with upside.
