Lions | No timetable for Joique Bell

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:24:23 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) is making progress in his recovery from injuries, but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor Bell's recovery to see when he will be able to return to the field. Bell likely will be the starter if he is healthy and could be a middle-round draft choice in drafts. Owners that select Bell may want to also select Ameer Abdullah as a handcuff in case Bell has a setback.

Lions | Joique Bell to begin on PUP list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:20:19 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 29, as he recovers from offseason surgery. It is unclear what the specific injury is, but Bell did have issues with his knee and Achilles' last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is eligible to return to the Lions at any point during training camp, but he has been very quiet on his injury issues. Owners are still free to draft Bell at this point, but rookie Ameer Abdullah may have an early season opportunity as this develops.

Lions | Joique Bell's health a big concern?

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:57:58 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell's health will be a concern until the Lions see him back on the field, according to offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. Bell suffered Achilles' and knee injuries last season, but still managed nearly 1,200 total yards and eight total touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: As long as he is healthy, Bell will be the Lions' starting running back. Ameer Abdullah will probably see his fair share of playing time too, while Theo Riddick should primarily be used on passing downs. There is some risk with Bell, but he should be selected as a RB2.

Lions | Detroit RBs to make dynamic duo?

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 15:15:57 -0700

Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell and rookie Ameer Abdullah are expected to form a one-two punch in the Lions' backfield this year. Head coach Jim Caldwell is supposedly set on running the ball more in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: It's not out of the question that both Bell and Abdullah can succeed this year. The Lions had two successful running backs in Bell and Reggie Bush two years ago. They both finished in the top-20 fantasy running backs that year. Bell should be drafted in RB2 territory while Abdullah should be considered a RB3 with RB2 potential.

Lions | Joique Bell aiming for 1,200 yards

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 08:28:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is aiming to become the franchise's second running back to rush for 1,000 yards since 2004. "I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards," Bell said. "That's the minimum. If I do less than that, I'll be surprised. I'll be disappointed. Anything more than that, I wouldn't be surprised at all."

Fantasy Tip: Bell is the clear leader in an expected timeshare with Theo Riddick. Head coach Jim Caldwell said he wants to run the ball more than they did last season. Bell is a high-to-mid RB2, while Riddick profiles as an RB3 in PPR formats.

Lions | Joique Bell not able to practice

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 10:14:22 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) was present for organized team activities Wednesday, June 10, but was not able to participate in the drills.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has missed all of the offseason workouts because of his injury but still has several weeks to recover before training camp. Bell likely will be the starting running back will share time with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. Bell could be seen as a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues this season.

Lions | Joique Bell not taking role for granted

Sun, 31 May 2015 16:50:51 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell said he is not assuming he is going to be the starting back in 2015. "I don't plan out the roles," Bell said during OTAs. "I go out to do what the team needs."

Fantasy Tip: Although Bell's status as the power back seems safe, the duo of Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah will likely prevent him from being a true workhorse back. On the plus side, he should see a bulk of the work around the goal line, and he should be a solid RB2.

Lions | Detroit to add help for Joique Bell?

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 16:24:39 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is expected to open the 2015 season as the primary running back, but Detroit is likely to draft another back, and head coach Jim Caldwell said they plan to add the most talented player available, even it means adding a power back.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be considered a RB2 heading into the 2015 season, but if the Lions decide to add a power back early in the draft, Bell's value could suffer a bit.

Lions | New backfield mate for Joique Bell?

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:40:09 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell could have company in the backfield if the team acts on its interest and signs free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills).

Fantasy Tip: An addition of Spiller would kill the fantasy appeal of Bell, who has good hands out of the backfield. Of course, so does Spiller. A timeshare would be the best-case scenario for Bell, and the worst-case scenario would be serving as the No. 2 back receiving only a handful of touches. Spiller's addition would make Bell a low-end RB2, even if point-per-reception (PPR) fantasy formats.

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.
