Week 8: vs Indianapolis Colts
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Le'Veon Bell rang up another 100+ yards combined performance last week, with 12/57/0 rushing and 8/88/1 receiving vs. Houston. He is a stud in all formats - start him if you've got him. LeGarrette Blount is a nice change of pace, but he isn't detracting much from Bell at all (7/9/0 rushing with 1/8/0 receiving last week).
The Colts' rush D ranks ninth in the NFL averaging 96.7 yards allowed per game, but they have coughed up seven rushing scores to date. Cincinnati was blanked last week (12/32/0 rushing), but Houston had 24/136/2 rushing vs. Indianapolis two games ago.
At home in Heinz Field, we view this as a neutral matchup for Bell, but he should still be your starter as one of the premier dual-threat running backs in the league.
