The clear-cut RB1 for Week 1, Bell destroyed the Browns in Cleveland last year to the tune of 201 total yards and a touchdown. Don't worry about him not partaking in the preseason, as he knows the system very well and the Steelers are obviously going to ride him on the road.

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.Tennessee allowed the 3rd most points to fantasy receivers and the Raiders will have to throw the ball a ton to move the ball against this defense.
