4. Joique Bell (RB-DET)
A lot of fantasy owners are relatively high on Bell following a great 2014 season in Detroit. Bell set career highs in carries and rushing yards.
However, the only reason Bell was the lead back in the first place was because Detroit didn’t have any other option. The Lions selected explosive running back Ameer Abdullah with their second round pick in the draft to fill the hole left from Reggie Bush’s departure. Expect Abdullah to cut into Bell’s touches early in the season, and eventually take over as the lead back.
3. Matt Forte (RB-CHI)
Forte lead the NFL in receptions last season under head coach Marc Trestman, which is where a lot of his fantasy value came from.
However, new head coach John Fox will probably focus more on having Cutler throw to Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, and rookie Kevin White, which will cut into Forte’s fantasy production. Don’t expect Forte to put up top five production in 2015.
