Beginning the fifth season of his career, Le'Veon Bell has logged only 51 games for Pittsburgh, including the playoffs.

The best could be yet to come.

Production and potential, with his blend of rushing and receiving skills, put Bell in first place in The Associated Press position rankings for running backs. In the first edition last week, Tom Brady was the consensus pick for the quarterbacks . In voting by Pro Football Hall of Fame member James Lofton and 10 AP football writers, Bell just beat Ezekiel Elliott of Dallas for top billing.

Bell had six first-place votes Friday to Elliott's five.
