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.Call 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.

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.

Carries the Steelers offense when heathyNot preferred by Rams on passing downs thus tipping hand when he is in the game to stack the box

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.
