Yeah, this year is going to be difficult to call.

If it were held today, I'd be looking to trade out.   :)

I would say Gurley.  

 

Peterson had a decent season but not the kind of season that leads one to being first overall.  Plus he's getting old for a RB and people will be looking for age and compiled hits to start taking their toll on him.  

 

Bell got injured during the season

 

Gurley missed 3 games, still put up 1100 yards, and came out of the season un-injured.

 

On top of that he plays on a team that doesn't have a good QB situation so it's going to lean on it's run game.

 

Also his age isn't a factor as he has just one NFL season.  

 

I could be wrong but I would say that leads to Gurely being the first overall pick in most fantasy drafts.

If he is healthy, it is LeVeon Bell. Peterson or Gurley do not have nearly the same amount of catches out of the backfield like Bell. Plus, whoever is the RB with the Steelers, they rarely come out to be replaced for an RBC. When it was Bell, DeAngelo Williams was a non-factor. When DeAngelo Williams was in, the other RBs were a non-factor. 

 

Both the Rams and Vikings use the #2 and/or #3 RBs more than the Steelers do, that is why it has to be Bell.

He might not be ready for the beginning of the season.   A PCL tear is no joke.   He may never be as good as he once was.   Risky with the 1st pick.  If it's PPR I take Antonio brown if the season started tomorrow.  Ideally I would try to trade the pick

The injury is going to affect his draft status in fantasy.  Not everyone comes back from that strong and it's certainly going to hurt him if he's expected to miss any games.

 

I think Gurley is going to be the guy for most fantasy players.  

 

Now do I think that's necessarily smart?  Not really . . . personally I wouldn't want the #1 overall pick this year for standard fantasy.

    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
