By now I’m sure you’ve heard that Le’Veon Bell has been suspended for three games for his marijuana possession and DUI arrest just prior to the start of the 2014 NFL season. With Bell the consensus top overall draft pick in almost any format, missing three games of a 16 game season is no small matter. However, at first glance and running through some idealized exercises, if and when I have the top overall pick, I’m still taking him every time. I’ll be especially excited about the leagues where Bell drops beyond the top pick and I can grab him, since I know the suspension will scare people off and be priced into a new, lower ADP.
