Le’Veon Bell is once again a free agent. In a surprising move, the New York Jets have released the former Pro-Bowl running back. Has Bell’s time on top of the fantasy charts come to an end? Many fantasy owners have clung onto the fact that he would be the bell cow for a struggling Jets offense. Moving on from the Jets may be the best case scenario for Bell, although that depends on his landing spot.
New England Patriots
The Patriots could use another weapon in the backfield. Bell would compliment the backfield well with James White and Damien Harris. A running back trio is what the Patriots have lived on for the last three seasons. If Le’Veon wants a championship opportunity, this might be his best bet.
Washington Football Team
What is another running back in an already split backfield? This move would actually make sense being as the Football Team lost both Derrius Guice and AP. Functioning with Antonio Gibson, Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic as their main backs. The soon-to-be Washington Red Wolves need another weapon in the backfield for whoever they choose to to take over QB duties. Could Alex Smith take his job back for good? Will there be a Dwayne Haskins resurgence? Who knows!
If you are the Dolphins are you satisfied with the Myles Gaskin rushing attack? Complimented by Matt Brieda and Ryan Fitzpatrick as their next best rushers. This team NEEDS Le’Veon Bell. This is absolutely the best spot for Bell, however fantasy owners should beware that a starting running back for the Dolphins needs to prove themself before being inserted in the fantasy lineup.
James Conner hasn’t exactly been the picture of health as the starting running back in the Steel City. It was an ugly break up, but a return to Pittsburgh would give the Steelers another weapon on offense. With a combination of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, the emerging Chase Claypool, and Bell to go with a great defense, the Steelers would be scary in the AFC.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers love their stable of backs, so this is a very darkhorse pick. However, a deal similar to the one that Leonard Fournette signed in Tampa Bay would make a lot of sense. Give Bell a one-year “prove it” deal and let Joshua Kelley and Justin Jackson continue work as change of pace backs.
New York Giants
Need I say more? A walk across the hallway could be good for Bell and the Giants. The NFC East is begging to be won and getting a replacement for Saquon Barkley the caliber of Bell would help their offense. This also probably won’t happen. But it could.
