Le’Veon Bell says fantasy players should pick him first overall
Le’Veon Bell recently apologized to fantasy owners who wasted a high draft pick on him last year only to watch him sit out the entire season, but the New York Jets star says he will make it up to them if they do the same in 2019.
While speaking with reporters at training camp on Thursday, Bell clarified that he was apologizing for not being able to communicate with fans about his holdout — not for sitting out a full season. He was then asked what pick fantasy players should use on him this year, and he confidently said No. 1.

Bell seems as confident as ever with his new team, and he already went out of his way to prove how good of shape he’s in at the start of training camp. He’s obviously itching to have a huge season after not playing at all in 2018, and that could mean big returns for fantasy players who trust him in a new system.
