Kahlil Bell is starting for CHI, and he plays eerilysimilar to Forte. The guy has all the tools to be a great back in this league, and with a good matchup against GB, I'm giving him the nod over Jackson.
What you think?
I am in the same situation. I have been debating starting Bell at the flex and have Moss and Megatron go instead of starting Torrey Smith.
The screen and check downs to backs is the Packers achilles heel. And i would be assuming with McCown starting that we will see a lot of that. But if i was in your situation i don't think i could get myself to start Bell over Jackson this deep into the playoffs. Especially since your league isn't PPR and that is where id believe Bell would get most of his points. With Ben out you'd hope the Steelers offense will sputter allowing the Rams to run the ball more.
