What to do with Le’Veon Bell in AFC Championship Game DFS

We go over the fantasy football and DFS outlook of Le’Veon Bell ahead of the Chiefs matchup up against the Bills in the AFC Championship.

You have to go back to Week 15 to find the last time Le’Veon Bell did something of note on the field. What can you expect from him in the AFC Championship Game versus the Buffalo Bills?

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs RB Le’Veon Bell, $4,100

Maybe nothing at all? Bell did suit up and play in Kansas City’s Divisional round victory over the Browns, gaining 6 yards on two carries. However, his left knee swelled up on him earlier this week and he was held out of practice on Thursday and Friday. He is officially questionable for this game, but with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) trending toward playing, Bell may be a total non-factor if he is active. In his last two games, he has gained 36 yards on just nine rushes. Bell’s Week 15 performance in New Orleans — 15 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown — feels like a lifetime ago.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Even if the Chiefs don’t sit Le’Veon, you should.
