Pretty simple question really. Both are cant miss backs and you could even throw DJ in there and you cant really go wrong.
However, my draft is tomorrow night, and this Bell holdout business is really starting to worry me. I was around 90 percent going to take Bell until this morning. Not that I doubt Gurley, but he has the tougher strength of schedule of the two. I firmly believe Pitt is going to run Bell into the ground in what could be his final season with the Steelers supposedly. Lev already said hes going to turn it up another notch this year to prove his worth. I think Bell could reach 90 receptions as Big Ben is not as mobile as he used to be and could be dumping the ball off more often. I’m under the impression Lev doesnt come off the field unless he needs to sip on some gatorade. Not that any of these projections matter, it’s all speculation and we cant talk about it until we are blue in the face. However, we know 1 thing. Gurley does not have a contract issue after getting PAID, and Bell does…
But is it even worth risking Bell holding out into Week 1 or even deep into the regular season? I could just take Gurley who has no underlying issues and could easily outperform Bell once again this season. I just don’t want to take any chances with the number one pick.
Am i just reading to much into this whole thing? Or are there actual concerns? Who would you guys go with and why?
