Thanks for the help, I would go with Leveon Bell. I think Pierre Thomas is a one time deal and he won't go off again like that even though his matchup is better. You know Bell is going to get all the carries.

Sproles and Thomas had alternating games. I think Sproles is the more likely to have that game out o the two. and The NO backfield is a rotating nightmare. Le'Veon Bell has a tough matchup but hes going to the get the carries including goal line looks. If Jaquizz Rodgers could score 2 TDs I think Bell has a shot for at least one.

I have Bell too. Just better options for me at this point, until I see solid production outta him. I would use him over Thomas especially in PPR, because I think the Steelers will game plan against the Jets stout run D with dump offs and YAC to get the ball in Bell's hands in the open field to run away from a slower linebacker in coverage. This will then open up deep option to Antonio and direct runs for Bell as well without as many D players in the box on run/option formations. Thanks for your help too.

Ty for help. Stick with bell. I've owned thomas the two years previous and its too frustrating to rely on him having a decent game let alone a good one.

Would go with Bell. I think you have better odds for number of touches.

Bell looked impressive in his debut and is a three down back. Granted its tough matchup vs Jets but Pitt has had 2 weeks to prepare and Jets on short week are good for let down in true Jet fashion :-)

Bell. He will get most or all of the touches. You never know whose week it is to be the main guy with the Saints. All we know is TE Graham will be involved and after that, who knows? It could be Sproles, or Thomas or Colston. Bell is the sure thing for touches.

I echo this. Had Thomas for a while last season and he drove me insane - I dropped him to waivers in the end. I'm debating whether to play Sproles or Bell. Bell is probably the safer option (surprisingly, given his lack of games), but with less upside than Thomas. I think Bell is more reliable.

Help!

Leveon bell will be a top RB this year. Trust me, the Steelers don't have anyone else at RB, and after watching Bell in college and the combine he's gonna be a beast.
