Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) said he is back to running at full speed and is feeling fully healthy. "I'm making a lot of progress, a lot of progress," Bell said. "Actually started back running full speed, got cleared for full go probably two weeks, a week after minicamp. I'm feeling 100%. I'm feeling great."
Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Bell as all signs now point for him to be ready for the start of training camp. Bell is a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) said he should be ready for training camp in late July. Bell hasn't participated in any of the team's organized team activities thus far.
Fantasy Tip: Bell really broke out as Reggie Bush’s “handcuff” last season. When healthy, Bell has top-20 running back potential, especially if he repeats his role as touchdown vulture. Keep tabs on Bell throughout the off season, but if he’s good to go for the start of the season, he is a low-end RB2 option in standard leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) didn't work out during organized team activities Wednesday, May 21, but he said he's not very concerned that it's a long-term injury. Bell was seen with "just an ice wrap" on his left knee Wednesday. He won't say whether he had the knee drained. "Just (a) nagging injury," Bell said. "Something just nagging, nothing that will prevent me (from playing). I had it all last season, so you guys didn't even really notice. But it's something we just trying to get rid of before next season. So it's just being smart."
Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't affect Bell's fantasy value heading into the 2014 season unless the injury lingers through the summer.

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said RBs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell likely will receive similar workloads this upcoming season than they did during the 2013 season. Bush played 54 percent of the offensive snaps in 2013 while Bell participated in 49 percent of the snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Bush and Bell likely will be offensive factors in 2014 as long as they are able to stay healthy. Both could be considered No. 2 or No. 3 running backs for owners this upcoming season based on the matchup.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 07:33:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he is fine with a potentially smaller workload in 2014. RB Joique Bell is expected to cut into Bush's workload more this season.
Fantasy Tip: Bush's value could begin to plummet this season at the age of 29. He still remains a good RB2 in PPR leagues, but Bell is starting to emerge. He's a good RB3 with potential for more.
