Bell had 201 yards from scrimmage and scored a touchdown at Cleveland last year and provided he ends his holdout prior to Week 1, he should be the best back in the NFL in Week 1.Chicago was just 21st against fantasy running backs last year and they still have concerns on defense, Atlanta should be able to run the ball well against them.
