 Bell might play this weekend, but even if he does, it will more than likely be short-lived, as the Patriots are expected to wrap up homefield advantage against the Jets. As crazy as it sounds, you should plan on not using Bell this weekend.

Freeman had only 64 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played, but at home, he should be a RB1.Bell had only 47 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played in Week 1, but that was in Week 1 with Bell having missed the entire preseason. Bell should be an elite RB1 this week.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Freeman really disappointed against the Saints, gaining just 56 total yards and losing a fumble, at the goal-line no less! Tevin Coleman's return left Freeman's touches lacking, and his poor performance certainly cost his fantasy owners. If you play through Week 17, you couldn't ask for a much worse matchup for Freeman than the Panthers, which allow the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. His success on the year keeps him as a start, but not as a particularly enticing one.
