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.

Le'Veon Bell not expected to attend OTAs

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is reporting Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is not expected to attend OTAs on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Per Fowler, Bell's presumed absence from OTAs is a move that comes "widely expected." While Bell could earn $14.5 million in guaranteed money if he plays the 2018 season on the franchise tag, it would be his second consecutive year playing under the tender, which does not always favor a player with an injury/ off the field history similar to Bell's. And although he's threatened to hold out of OTAs, training camp and the preseason -- he even threatened to miss regular season action if he doesn't get a new deal -- I'm fully expecting Bell to be on the field when it counts. Let's face it, $14.5 million is a lot of guaranteed money to turn down, especially when you're not getting your weekly in-season game checks. Bell will open the 2018 season as a top 4 fantasy RB in both standard and PPR scoring formats.
