Nah bro

 

Fitz Touissant lining up a monster year!  :lol:

 

I think Ridley is the guy that will take over but I can understand your thought process with Fitz having been there the longest.  I'm picking up Ridley wherever I can though

Why wouldn’t it be Conner? 

 

Has he fallen out of favor already?

 

It's absolutely Conner or Samuels.  Conner is a better RB, Samuels fits the Bell role better.  Training camp will certainly be worth paying attention to and seeing what the talk is coming out.  Samuels was filling the Bell role in OTAs while Conner has come into this season in much better physical shape than last year.

There is a reason Ridley has been on 8 teams in 8 years.

 

Good luck though

I didn't like his rhetoric from the beginning. He's real close to a DND for me.  This is not trending well. 

Take a deep breath- It could all be posturing.   Not a great look to sit out and want to be paid 200% of the next highest paid back.   

 

Don’t completely unclinch tho.  As I understand it-   Bell will be UFA in 2019 if he sits out 2018.   Someone probably pays him 17M if he’s healthy.   

A madman desperate to make a splash in sin city?

So what's the smoke?

 

Him saying the plan is to NOT rack up 400 touches, or that 2018 is  going to be his best season ever?

 

Kind of hard to do both. Pretty sure he'll play and therefore makes sense at #2, but because of this he'll drop to #3 behind Zeke, but before Johnson.

He’s not missing any games these overreactions are astonishing

 

Who’s overreacting? This guy’s career is over. He’s going to hold out through the season and be rusty next year wherever he goes.

On rotoworld you fall out of flavor on a game by game basis.

 

Unless you are Christine Michaels or Josh Gordon then you have an eternity.

Le'veon Bell will play.  If he stays healthy, he will likely play very well.

 

Float the hold-out talk to your leaguemates and try to drive his price down.

 

As for next year?  Not sure what kind of market he will have.  Smart teams do not spend $12 or $15 million on one running back.

Yeah - because Bell is not one of the best players in the entire league

 

 

 

Exactly. Best time to get on board with Samuels

Bell is about 2 years away from making podcasts and rap singles for a living.

 

Well played, steelers.

 

At least someone gets it. Maybe he’ll make more money that way ?

This is the same guy who averaged 130 scrimmage yards per game, right? 

Hes now a useless “system back” ... you drama queens never cease to amaze.

 

it is actually possible to voice displeasure about this contract dispute without acting like a scorned lover.

 

he is, without a doubt, one of the best players in the league - that is not even debatable.

True, but spending a top-4 pick on him looks like asking for trouble. He proved me wrong last year, though, so we'll see.

I’d rather have an unproven Barkley than the bum the Le’Veon Bell is
