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.
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.
The No. 1 wide receiver this coming season will likely come from Beckham, Antonio Brown 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.
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.
Howard looked great last season despite not starting the year as the Bears' lead back and playing on a bad football team. His upside is going to be touchdown dependent, but he did catch the ball enough to not knock him too far down. He's going to be a workhorse, and as long as he stays healthy, he'll be a top back this year.
Ajayi was a beast last season and led the league in forced missed tackles. The Dolphins' offensive line is a strong unit, and with Adam Gase as the coach, I believe he can keep this offense on track enough to give Ajayi plenty of work.
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.
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.
Gordon was a touchdown machine last season, but also showed ability outside of the goal line. He will likely lose some receptions to Danny Woodhead and could have trouble coming close to his touchdown total from last year.
Dude, no. There is a reason no one in the Pittsburgh media is taking the Ben retirement talks seriously - it's not gonna happen. And the Steelers aren't drafting his replacement in the first round this year. They will draft necessary talent to help with super bowl pushes in Ben's last 3, count 'em, 3 years.
