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.Minnesota was 10th against fantasy running backs last year, but Ingram should see enough carries to have low-end RB2 value.
