 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 Buccaneers are just 24th against fantasy running backs, the Saints need to play their starters to win a game that would clinch the NFC South. Kamara is a RB1 for the fantasy playoffs. 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
Kamara had a down game for him against the Falcons in Week 16, totaling 90 yards on 19 touches. The fact that 90 total yards is a huge disappointment shows just how dominant Kamara has been. The Saints still need a win (or a Panthers loss) to win their division, so you can bet they'll be as motivated to play as ever next week against the Bucs. Tampa Bay has struggled to stop the run all year, which leaves Kamara as a top option, as always.
