I picked AB but its really tough lol
I guess my logic is that Bell is a step away from being canned for 10 games and has had a few injuries where AB hasn't 'really' had any of that luckily.

Bell he is younger and the running game opens up the passing game for us. We are a lot deeper and better off at WR right now. I see Rodgers, Bryant and that new rookie kid (can't remember his last name off the top of my skull) doing well next year.

I went with AB:
1. Bell hasn't played a full season. Be it for injury or suspension. His health is also a concern
2. AB is harder to replace (note: I'm not saying replacing Bell would be easy, just not as hard)

AB. Bell hasn't proven he can handle a whole season without getting hurt

Bell is like the Peyton Manning of RB's. He does great in the regular season but you can always bet at some point int he playoffs he'll be nonexistent

Hopefully Bell is a Steeler when he wins 2 Super Bowls like Peyton.

AB. That might change if Bell ever gets through an entire season.

Bell.

1. Together with Gronkowski he is one of only two offensive players in this league, QB's not included, who can carry an offense on his own. All the other great offensive players (AB, Jones, Green, OBJ, Elliott, David Johnson) do need a QB.

2. The drop off in RB's after Bell is huge. Only Johnson and Elliott (but he has a different style) are somewhat close. There are also far more really good WR's than RB's.

On the top of my head:
RB's: Bell, Johnson, Elliott, Martin, McCoy, Murray, Freeman, Ajayi, Howard
WR's: AB, Jones, Green, OBJ, Dez Bryant, Nelson, Edelman, Hilton, Evans, Landry, Jackson, Garçon, Baldwin, Cooks, Cooper, Pryor, Fitzgerald, Jeffery, Marshall, Cobb, Thomas, Sanders, Hopkins, Diggs.

So it will be easier to find a WR that is closer to AB than a RB to replace Bell.

3. A wide receiver is far more dependable of the QB and the chemistry he has with him than a RB. Look at AB's numbers when Landry Jones or Vick were QB last year.

^^^ this

to add, with so many spread college offensives more WRs then RBs coming out of college now a days.

and a QB and a #2 WR to make AB really great.

I chose Brown only because of Bell's injury history. But if we had Bell healthy in the AFCCG it would have been a different ballgame. Brown as is shown, needs an effective no. 2 to really make an impact. He was pretty much neutralized in the AFCCG with double coverage. Bell would've worn the Patriots* defense down and opened things up in the passing game as well - if only he didn't get injured.

Haley runs the wheels off of Bell when Bell is healthy.

Yeah he did. Our passing game was missing Bryant all season. Even our prized FA Green was missing for most of the season. That guy was supposed to contribute heavily to the passing game. So yeah, Haley relied on Bell more and more as the season went on.

AB, you get more longevity and production out of WRs than you do from RBs. Bell has a known history of drug issues that have lead to suspensions. He is also injury prone, and while he's probably the most dynamic running back in the NFL when healthy, he has yet to play a full 16 game season.

Brown, while a bit egocentric at times, has been productive year in and year out. Between Brown and Julio Jones, he could very well be the best WR in the NFL. He's a threat as a receiver, and on special teams. He's a threat whenever he has the ball in his hands basically. Running backs come and go, but this kind of receiver talent isn't easy to come by.

I would definitely keep Brown over Bell.
