Bell looks locked into starting role: Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette reported on his Twitter account that rookie running back Le’Veon Bell is running with the first-team offense. The Michigan State product is a great fit for the offense of coordinator Todd Haley and will likely be the top backfield option ahead of Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman. He’s a player to target in the middle rounds as a high-end No. 3 runner with the upside to be a No. 2. His current ADP on NFL.com is Round 8, but that is certain to rise this summer as camp progresses.

Danny Amendola only ‘bright spot’?: According to the Boston Globe, Amendola is “the one bright spot in the receiver room so far” at Patriots camp. That’s not a surprise, as the team is working in a ton of new parts including rookies Aaron Dobson (who is running with the first team) and Kenbrell Thompkins, who is reportedly “catching everything thrown his way.” Amendola is the lone wideout on this roster who is a lock to be picked in all drafts, but fantasy owners should be keeping tabs on Dobson and Thompkins. After all, their quarterback is Tom Brady.

Torrey Smith to see more targets: The Baltimore Sun reports that Smith will be looked upon to take on a greater role in the Ravens’ pass attack in the absence of Dennis Pitta. The third-year wideout will be in a great spot to have a career season, as Joe Flacco will no doubt look to his top option often in an offense devoid of prominent playmakers. An eighth-round pick based on NFL.com’s current ADP, he’s being drafted as a No. 3 but has No. 2 upside in drafts.
