DeAngelo Williams had a spectacular first two games of the fantasy football season, but faltered in week three.
Le'Veon Bell makes his debut off a three-game suspension this week for the Pittsburgh Steelers, what's the fantasy football points outlook in standard and PPR leagues for these two running backs in week 4 and beyond?
For Bell, it's easy to argue that he is now the number one RB in fantasy football in both standard and PPR formats barring injury or suspension.
Add to his immense talent in a usually high powered offense, Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin says he is ready to use a whole lot of Bell this week at home against a decent Kansas City Chiefs. defense.
If Tomlin is telling the truth, workhorse production from Bell would be a welcome sight for fantasy owners who have been waiting for three weeks for the star back.
So, what is the fantasy football outlook for former RB1 DeAngelo Williams?
It falls off considerably.
If you have the RB as a handcuff keep him as Bell could get hurt (or suspended) and being able plug in Williams might save your season.
If you now own Williams and don't own Bell, it might be worth it to try to approach the team owner who has Le'veon Bell and propose a trade.
Williams will be a tough start in any format as long as Bell is starting and performing going forward.
The Steelers are off an embarrassing 34-3 spanking last week from their cross state rival (Philadelphia Eagles), but their offense is high caliber and should rebound against the Chiefs.
