Few players at any position are bigger injury risks when you consider Bell’s history and projected workload. That needs to be factored in when weighing his fantasy value. The nice thing, though, is that Bell comes with a proven and productive handcuff in DeAngelo Williams, who was an elite RB1 when Bell was out last year. Spending a 1st-round pick on Bell and a mid-rounder on Williams gives you an excellent shot at high-end RB1 production from the tandem.
