Lions | Joique Bell sitting out

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:38:46 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') will not play in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still not ready to play in a game, so owners should continue to monitor his progress to see if he will be ready for the regular season. Bell probably will receive a majority of the carries but will split playing time with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. Bell could be a middle-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Detroit will use committee at RB

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:53:48 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said the Lions will still take a committee approach at running back even when Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') returns.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jim Caldwell recently said he expects to come back as a bellcow running back, so we may have to wait until the regular starts to see how much Bell and Ameer Abdullah are used. If Bell stays healthy, he has RB2 upside. Abdullah is a speculative RB3 with RB2 potential in PPR leagues.

Lions | Detroit HC talks Joique Bell

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:01:14 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') is expected to return this season as a bellcow running back, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Bell has been nursing injuries all offseason, but Caldwell still envisions him producing similarly to how he did last year.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has rushed for 15 combined touchdowns the last two seasons. Ameer Abdullah, and even Theo Riddick, will cut into his playing time this year, but he still has RB2 potential if he can get healthy and stay healthy.

Lions | Joique Bell to keep starting job

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 06:38:08 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') will return as the starting running back when he returns from the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to RB Zach Zenner.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is an RB2, but he's being pushed by Ameer Abdullah, who should be active in PPR leagues as an RB3.

Lions | Detroit RBs close to even split

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 06:11:15 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell and RB Ameer Abdullah are expected to have their touches fluctuate based on the weekly matchup, but it's unlikely there are games where one dominates the touches if both are healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to be used inside while Abdullah can stretch it outside with his speed and agility. Bell is a solid RB3 with added bonus for his previous PPR showings. Abdullah is an RB3, but he's a tick below.

Lions | Joique Bell feeling good

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 21:11:47 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell said he is finally pain-free for the first time in a couple of years and he is motivated to have a great season. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins likes the running back by committee style and Bell will have an important role as an inside runner.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to see plenty of reps, whether it is in a starting role or behind rookie Ameer Abdullah. Bell is a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option in most formats, and he is especially useful in formats which reward points per reception (PPR).

Lions | Joique Bell looking better

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 11:41:36 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) ran harder on the side during practice Tuesday, Aug. 11, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been nursing injuries all offseason, and it's taking him a while to get back to good health. Ameer Abdullah will bit into his fantasy value a bit, but Bell is still worth a look as a RB2 if he's healthy.

Lions | Theo Riddick listed as starter

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 13:37:48 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick is listed as the starting running back on the team's first depth chart since RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) is on the Physically Unable to Perform list. RB Ameer Abdullah is listed as the No. 2 running back on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick is listed as the starter for now but things should change as the preseason goes on. Riddick should have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he likely will be used as a receiver out of the backfield. Bell and Abdullah could be middle-round options in drafts if they share work at the position.

Lions | Joique Bell works on side

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:14:34 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) has been working on a side field and could be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future. Bell has been sprinting, cutting and doing cone drills during workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has not participated in practice at this point since he is recovering from injuries but could return soon. Bell is expected to be the starting running back for the Lions this season and could be a middle-round pick if he is able to stay healthy.

Lions | Big role for Ameer Abdullah

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 18:03:48 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah is expected to be a big part of the offense in his first NFL season, splitting carries with RB Joique Bell while also having first chance to win punt and kick return duties. Abdullah is expected to play a similar role to RB Reggie Bush in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah should be an attractive fantasy option for those in leagues which reward point per reception (PPR), and he could see enough touches to warrant usage as a low-end RB2 or flex play in standard leagues sooner rather than later, too.
