Lions | Joique Bell undergoes surgery

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 20:14:32 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell had minor surgery last week to clean up his knee and Achilles' tendon. He is expected to return in time for organized offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that the leading rusher for the Lions will be more than ready for the 2015 season. It depends on what the Lions do in free agency and the draft as to whether Bell will be the bellcow in Motown again in 2015.

Lions | Joique Bell probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 13:40:12 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles') is probable for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has a tough test against Green Bay, who has defended the run better than average this year. Consider him no more than a flex option on FantasyScore this week.

Lions | Joique Bell a full-go Thursday

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:45:51 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles') fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has five touchdowns over his past four games, and the matchup with the Green Bay Packers projects to be a high-scoring game. Bell is worth considering as a No. 2 running back or flex play in FantasyScore contests this weekend.

Lions | Joique Bell limited in practice

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 12:56:12 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles') was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said the injury shouldn't affect his status for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he does play, Bell is probably best left off FantasyScore lineups with a tough draw against the Green Bay Packers, who have allowed only eight rushing touchdowns to running backs through 15 games.

Lions | Detroit not dropping passes

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:40:26 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed three percent more of his passes this year than last year, and the team's reduction in dropped passes is likely the key. Last year, the Lions dropped 8.1 percent of passes. No Lions player has more than three drops on the year, with RB Joique Bell, TE Eric Ebron and WR Calvin Johnson with three drops each.

Lions | Probable status for Joique Bell

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:08:27 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Bell costs $5,400 at FantasyScore, and the Patriots have allowed an average of 20.76 fantasy points to running backs, although their D has stiffened of late. Bell will be a safer play if Reggie Bush (ankle) sits out again.

Lions | Joique Bell, Reggie Bush limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:59:23 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell (ankle) and Reggie Bush (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Bell did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Both running backs are expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Bell ($5,400) should be the more trusted FantasyScore lineup option, though, and the Pats have allowed an average of 18.63 fantasy points to running backs. Bush costs slightly less than Bell at $5,200.

Lions | Joique Bell has ankle injury

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:45:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, due to an ankle injury. Bell left game briefly in Week 11 because of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($5,400) should be fine unless he suffers a setback this week. The New England Patriots, the Lions' Week 12 opponent, have allowed just over 20 fantasy points to running backs this year, which makes Bell appealing. However, the backfield picture could be cloudy if Reggie Bush (ankle) re-enters the fold.
