The top spot is a fight between Bell and David Johnson this season, and I'm giving a slight edge to Bell. The Steelers should come back strong in 2017 and get some help back on offense, which should keep Bell in good spots all season long.
2. David Johnson, (RB No. 2)RB, Cardinals. Bye: 9.
Johnson could easily top Bell this season, but my main concern is Carson Palmer. I think coach Bruce Arians will keep giving Johnson the ball all over the field, but Palmer is hitting an old age wall. The offense could have trouble in 2017.
Brown had a down year for him, but there wasn't much room for him to exceed his previous three fantasy finishes. He's still easily in the top-wide receiver conversation and even the top-overall-pick conversation, as the Steelers' offense should remain strong.
The No. 1 wide receiver this coming season will likely come from Beckham, Antonio Brown, Mike Evans or Julio Jones once again. Beckham is the young gun of the group with plenty to prove still. I'm going to look to him as the highest-upside wide receiver of the year, but it's no doubt close.
McCoy was right up near the top last season in ability, and despite missing a little time with injuries, he still finished as a Top-3 fantasy running back. How he will be used exactly with Rex Ryan out of town, I don't know, but he still was at the top of his game last year and deserves to be a top pick this year.
Gordon was a touchdown machine last season, but also showed ability outside of the goal line, especially in the receiving game. With Danny Woodhead in Baltimore, Gordon's receptions should keep him near the top of the fantasy points.
Bryant is in the wrong offense to put up huge numbers, but will continue to see good touchdown opportunities and should be efficient when he does get targets with so much attention going toward Ezekiel Elliott.
14. Rob Gronkowski, (TE No. 1)TE, Patriots. Bye: 9.
Gronkowski's injury worries will take him out of the first round this year, but he's still the no-doubt best tight end in the league, and that's not a hot take.
@Drunk Ass Jerry To your points.... M. Hyatt is excellent but lacks the size many feel needed for OT and see him as a OG in the NFL... Safety is still a need for the Bucs ... RB it seems like C. Sims is always hurt... D. Martin has been up and down... I like J. McNichols alot but see him as their 3rd down back of the future.. I did grab a CB in RD4 for them... and 2018`s edge rushing talent isn`t deep into the later rounds..I see them using F/A for edge help more than the 2018 draft.
Seems like a month ago that i was 8-2 in two days of MLB play, actually it was 4 days ago. Another crap result yesterday and I'm getting a little cheesed about it. If I had not used hedging techniques I would be bleeding coin by now, but since I am, it's just a stinger. For today: In an ongoing par from yesterday I'm sticking the Under 8.5 -115 in the Braves/Dodger game in the second tier spot. Start up pars with Astros: -118, Boston -123, and AZ +1.5 RL -160, all with two open. GL and hopefully the Red tide will fade.
