With a mixtape (NSFW language), the New York Jets have a fantastic football difference player on the offense.
The offensive midfielder The Vein Bell revealed that he will be signing with the AFC East team on the mixtape that he dropped on Tuesday night:
Mike Freeman @mikefreemanNFL
I am rappin
In my refuge
Do not call me raven
Was a Steeler
Here is my probe
Go to the metro
Because I am a jet
ESPN Adam Schefter noted that his agreement will be four years and $ 52.5 million.
Bell's return to the field is good news for the fantastic players, who did not have the three Pro Bowler and All-Pro players available during the 2018 campaign, while he was absent. because of a contractual conflict with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Nevertheless, the Michigan State product is not one that should be the first choice in fantasy projects in 2019. Sustainability issues exist after it's spent an entire season and only played six games in 2015 and that he operates behind an offensive line. Football Outsiders ranked last in the block ranking last year.
Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott, Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara are all expected to move to the draft, provided their potential numbers are less variable.
Nevertheless, Bell is one of the league's best halfbackers and his ability to influence ground and air play makes him a fantastic and lethal weapon. He was 1,200 rushing yards and 600 receiving yards in three of his first five professional seasons.
This type of production means that it is worth choosing in the first round, even in the midst of all the uncertainties.
Just make sure it's not a choice early in the first round.

Le'Veon Bell will sign with the New York Jets, by @AdamSchefter https://t.co/TIzathShhL
In the meantime, this signature is nothing but good news for those who want to take a fantastic flyer on the second year quarterback.
He sometimes showed a lot of potential, but he had difficulties as a rookie. He completed 57.7% of his passes for 2,865 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 steals. A bad offensive online game did not help, nor did an extended receivers group that only counted a single player with over 500 yards in the original, Robby Anderson ( 752).
Bell gives Darnold an elite option off the battlefield during passes. It can serve as a safety valve and help the quarterback to avoid interceptions, and its ability to turn screen passes into pieces of footage will be a source of great fantasy points. Its presence also means that the opposing defenses will engage more players in the area and open a passing lane.
Darnold is still not worthy of starting in fantasy circles until proven otherwise, but he prides himself on a much higher ceiling after that signing.
