Look up patience in the dictionary. Depending on the year it was published, you might see Bell’s face next to the definition. The running back attracted so much praise for his patience in 2016 that it would have became unbearable if it wasn’t so warranted. Bell’s unique combination of a slow, almost floating first step and a sudden burst out of the backfield made him one of the league’s best running backs, if not the game’s king at the position. Bell rushed for 1,268 yards, with his peak coming in back-to-back 150-plus yard games in the playoffs. His most memorable performance happened in a driving snowstorm in Orchard Park, New York, where Bell toted the ball 38 times and churned up 236 yards rushing and three touchdowns on the ground. He has a budding rap career on the side, too, though his immediate focus should and will be on building upon an impressive 2016 campaign, one that was good enough to launch him from No. 41 to No. 9.
