Bell has typically been a great follow on Twitter but the last six months of his timeline would have you believe the biggest news of the offseason revolves around his new mixtape, not his return from injury. Bell underwent surgery in November of last year to repair a gruesome injury which resulted in a torn MCL and PCL. Bell recently said his knee feels stronger than it ever has and fully expects to be ready for the team’s training camp at the end of the July. Feeling great running around in shorts and feeling great after someone slams their knee into your helmet are two vastly different things. I wouldn’t blame anyone for drafting Todd Gurley , David Johnson or even Adrian Peterson before Bell until we’ve had a chance to see Bell in pads.- So Called Fantasy Experts
