Summary

LeVeon Bell was off for a year, which should save some wear and tear on him, and the Jets will lean on him heavily to help ease the burden carried by their young quarterback. The offensive line is improved, especially with the addition of Ryan Kalil at center, though still an issue, but Bell has overcome such things before. He may not be the top running back anymore, but he's still a top ten fantasy back, and should be a huge part of the Jets offense. (August 13)

Jets | Le'Veon Bell could sit out preseason (Sun Aug 18, 01:14 PM) - New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't played in the team's first two preseason games, and head coach Adam Gase is noncommital about Bell playing in the third. 'We'll kind of see how next week goes,' Gase said Friday, Aug. 16. 'He's played a lot of football. And I like where he's at right now. I love how he's working. If I feel like there's a need to play him next week, we will. If he has a good week of practice and it's not worth it for us to get him out there, then we won't.'

Our View: We'll see if Bell can get out there for a Jets debut in the preseason. If Bell doesn't play in Week 3 of the preseason (the dress rehearsal for the regular season), then there's little chance of him playing in Week 4 when starters typically rest.
