2019 FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: LE'VEON BELL SIGNS ON WITH THE JETS

Was the holdout worth it?  It certainly doesn't appear to be on the surface for running back Le'Veon Bell who agreed to a four-year deal worth $52.5 million last night with the New York Jets.  After sitting out the entire 2018 season and losing millions in the process, the Bell market failed to develop the way both he and many in the industry anticipated and so the multi-talented star ends up with $35 million guaranteed when the expectation was that this number would be much higher.  The fact of the matter is that Bell likely scared off quite a bit of potential suitors not only with his diva act last season but also for the run-ins with both the law and the league in terms of past drug use.  Be that as it may, Bell does end up in a good spot on a Jets team who will ride him heavily both in the run and pass game and the team also shored up their offensive line by trading for Pro Bowl guard Kelechi Osemele.  In terms of fantasy football, Bell should slide right back into the mid-first round territory and sit behind Todd Gurley (as long as the knee checks out), Saquon Barkley, and maybe only Christian McCaffrey.
