RB16, RB1, RB47, RB3, RB2: those are Le'Veon Bell’s point-per-reception (PPR) finishes at running back since he entered the league in 2013. That RB47 finish comes from the 2015 season where he served a two-game suspension before tearing his MCL early in Week 8. From Week 3 to Week 7 of that year, he was the second-highest scoring running back and finished as RB4 in fantasy points per game. Here are five reasons why those numbers will happen again in 2019:
- The Steelers’ system is great for running backs, but great running backs like Bell have succeeded in worse situations than the current Jets
- He’s in great shape and could be more motivated than ever
- Head coach Adam Gase has proven that he’s willing to shape his offense around his players’ skill sets rather than vice versa. Bell will thrive here
- The Jets aren’t Super Bowl contenders but they won’t smoother Bell’s potential to log top-five numbers
- He’s the most talented player on the team and will flourish as the workhorse
