Gio keeps getting the job done for the Bengals. Last week, he took 30 touches and went for 168 yards and a score. The matchup isn't as great for Week 17, but with that type of workload, he is a must-start.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.

The Ravens are just 21st against fantasy running backs this year, Bernard could be a strong RB2 this week.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.
