Jets tailback Le'Veon Bell (1,250 total yards, 4 TDs) racked up 85 total yards and/or one touchdown 10 times last season, while enjoying a sterling catch-to-target rate of 85 percent.

BATSBY Sports has once again tweaked its listing of fantasy football’s top 150 playmakers, factoring in Points Per Reception scoring.

This will likely serve as the last update until training camps open in late July — assuming all 32 clubs get the official green light to begin anew.
