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.
If Allen could keep from getting injured, he would have been one of the top fantasy receivers over the last two seasons, but, alas, he hasn't been healthy. Injuries are impossible to predict, just as if a player will stay healthy. Allen is a guy I will be targeting if his ADP doesn't get out of control.
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.
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.
