Bell, undeniably one of my favorite rushers in last April’s draft class, is slated to return and possibly start across the pond against the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota, which has surrendered the fourth-most fantasy points to RBs, offers a very enticing matchup. Because Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Felix Jones have proven ineffective, it’s likely the rookie will net at least 15-18 touches in his regular season debut. FLEX him at a minimum in 12-team and deeper leagues.
Meanwhile, Nate Burleson broke his arm in a car accident Tuesday. The wreck occurred after he attempted to save a pizza sliding off the front passenger seat. With the wideout sidelined, Broyles, Detroit’s slot machine, should see a major uptick in targets, possibly netting 7-9 per game moving forward. Facing a banged up Bears defense, he’s a strong WR3 recommendation in Week 4.
