Bell is a low-upside RB2 at home in a tough matchup against the Patriots top-ranked fantasy running back defense this week.Ekeler is starting to lose touches to RB Melvin Gordon, but he should still have flex appeal in a tough matchup at the Titans 8th ranked fantasy running back defense.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Bell has only broken 100 scrimmage yards this season, but hopefully the new-and-improved Jets lead to a new-and-improved Bell. His greatest feature is that he's involved no matter the game script, so keep firing him up and eventually he'll have a prototypical Bell performance.Melvin Gordon ruined everything. Ekeler had no less than 16 touches in any game while Melvin Gordon was out, but Week 6 saw Ekeler only record eight touches. Maybe the Chargers will realize that Ekeler deserves more of a share of the work, but he's fading into FLEX territory as it stands today.
