The most patient runner in all of football. He's an absolute joy to watch. A complete back who we once called a once in a decade player. Gurley should improve on last season's numbers, and will see less 8 in the box this year thanks to Goff's improvement. Will start strong with games against the Colts, Redskins and Niners, but then divisional games against the Seahawks and Cardinals kick in, and in important weeks likes 13 and 15. He's still a dynasty hold, but this Rams team needs improvement for him to truly shine.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Had Le'Veon 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.The Rams added Andrew Whitworth and Sammy Watkins which should help Gurley a ton, but there is still the fact that Jared Goff is his QB, so he may still see some stacked boxes. He still has the ceiling of a top 5 player and will get enough carries that he has a high floor too.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
"Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report back to team before regular season kicks off, though it remains unclear exactly when." Bell values himself at about $15mm per year, your move Rooney. https://twitter.com/pyro_hartbeat/status/898624591072862208 https://twitter.com/pyro_hartbeat/status/898232466686697472 There is no doubt Bell is the RB1 when he is active, this hold-out makes me nervous. He might be staying in shape, but there is no way to really simulate game-speed without actually participating with the team. He missed 3 games last year and came in shredding defenses, but that is much different than missing camp completely.Drafted as a top 3 RB last year he disappointed anyone that drafted him. He's got the talent, but they need to put pieces around him desperately. LA did acquire LT Andrew Whitworth and will be shifting their current LT to RG. This should bolster the O-line meaning good things for Gurley.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If Bell can stay on the field for all 16 games, it's quite possible that we see him break total yardage 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.Count this as me buying into new head coach Sean McVay's offense, as he's said numerous times that his goal is to make Gurley as good as he can be. They added one of the best left tackles in the game this off-season with Andrew Whitworth, which definitely doesn't hurt. He's not the player you thought he was, but he's going to get 300-plus carries.
Brandon Funston
Fantasy Spin
Most talented overall RB in the game? Yeah, probably. But, be it injury, weed or (this year) contract issues, there always seems to be some baggage that comes withThe situation in LA was atrocious last season, and it's hard to buy in to the idea that it has gotten appreciably better for '17 - maybe it won't turn out as bad as it was in '16, but, after witnessing a 3.2 YPC on 278 carries, we can no longer simply claim that workload and talent will overcome - there's a headwind here that can't be ignored
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.Gurley did not seem engaged last season due to such a horrible offense. Have his skills diminished? Maybe, but it's hard to believe that after his strong first season. I'm willing to take the risk.
Staff Rankings
QB List
There is a significant contingent of fantasy enthusiasts who make a persuasive argument that Bell should be the top RB in fantasy football in 2017. He has more years of solid production on his resume. He plays for a better offense on paper and his team is much more balanced. He has a better offensive line. These are all true, However, Bell carries risk that Johnson does not. In his four years in the league, he has only played a whole season once (2014) due to a mixture of injuries and off field issue related suspensions. Still, the upside is there, his 19.95 points per game in 2016 were only a hair shy of Johnson's 20.4, and that was in a year where Bell only scored 9 TDs, a number which is due for some serious positive regression. If Bell falls past pick 1.2 in your league, you are either playing with idiots, or you live in Baltimore.The number one RB by ADP in 2016 has fallen from grace after a massively disappointing year. Still, he has no competition on a run-first team in an increasingly soft division. We expect him to bounce back in 2017.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Finished second in RB targets despite three-game suspension; has missed 14 games over three seasons from injuries and suspensions; offense has scary potential with Bell, Roethlisberger, Brown and Bryant all on the field for first time since 2014. Couldn't top 85 rushing yards in any game last season; averaged 3.2 YPC; did see increase in targets from 26 to 58; new coaching staff can only help him rebound some.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.Gurley was not good last year but he quickly has become an immense value buy in 2017, potentially.

With no injuries or suspensions to worry about, Bell could average 30 points per game in PPR leagues. Auction Value $52Gurley was the biggest Fantasy flop of 2016. New Rams head coach Sean McVay will get that fixed in 2017. Auction Value $35
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
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. Gurley was a major disappointment with just 885 yards rushing, 327 yards receiving and 6 touchdowns. I think the combination of head coach Jeff Fisher being replaced by offensive guru Sean McVay and QB Jared Goff being a year older should help him return to low RB1 status.
