Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Bell is a low RB2 for Week 15, as he should continue to be involved enough to return fantasy points, but his upside simply hasn't been there. He still hasn't surpassed 100 rushing or receiving yards in a game, and he only has four total touchdowns all season. He isn't ideal, but he's serviceable.It looks like James Conner should finally be making his return in Week 15. He's a fairly risky play, as the Steelers offense has pretty much struggled all season, and they have a tough matchup against the Bills. Consider him a risk-reward RB2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 The Bills are 13th against fantasy running backs, Conner has flex value on an offense that does not pass the ball very much in his first game back from injury.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He was held out last week due to an illness, and in his absence, Bilal Powell totaled 74 yards on the ground, which is more than Bell has had all season. Fresh legs are a real thing, as are the impact of Bell being in the backfield versus Powell, but it's still noteworthy. It should be expected that he'll go back into his normal role knowing Powell is not playing, though it's a brutal matchup he's returning to. The Ravens have limited their opponents plays with their ball-control-style offense, and that's directly impacted the running back touches. There have been just five running backs who've totaled more than 14 touches against them, which is a ridiculously low total considering they've played 13 games. Bell's snaps had decreased a bit over the last month, too, as he's played just 68 percent of the snaps over his last four games, which is down significantly from his 90-plus percent over the first nine weeks of the season. But again, the absence of Powell this week should change that. The 4.56 yards per carry the Ravens have allowed to running backs doesn't even make much of a difference with Bell, who's averaging just 3.22 yards per carry on the season, as it seems unlikely the Jets will have enough carries to go around to make him very successful. The Ravens have also held each of their last eight opponents to 20 points or less, so it's not like there'll be many scoring opportunities, either. Bell should be considered a mid-to-low-end RB2 this week who does come with a decent floor, though not much of a ceiling.
