With all the injuries Patriots' running backs have sustained, it is no wonder Lewis saw 29 touches last week. We may see more of the same in Week 17 with home field advantage on the line so consider him an RB1.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.

Fake Teams
Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee are out, while James White is questionable.

The Jets are just 19th against fantasy running backs, Lewis has RB1 upside for Week 17.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some may wonder if Lewis will be rested for Week 17, but the Patriots are still playing for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
