Lions | Joique Bell feeling good into offseason

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 19:14:42 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell said Monday, Jan. 25, that he is primed for a rebound in 2016, as he feels healthier entering the offseason than he has in year. "Going into my third year, I had a pretty good season. I feel probably just as good now as I felt then. So I really have an offseason when I can train the way I want to train and get after it," Bell said.

Fantasy Tip: Bell managed just 311 yards on 90 carries, losing his starting job to rookie Ameer Abdullah midway through the season. Abdullah is back, and Theo Riddick emerged as a dependable pass catcher out of the backfield, so while Bell might be 100 percent heading into 2016, he will have some stiff competition for touches, not to mention Zach Zenner will also be back in the mix.

Lions | Joique Bell finds end zone

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:47:51 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell carried eight times for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 21. He also hauled in two receptions for 30 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was the trusted option down the stretch after splitting carries with Ameer Abdullah earlier in the game. He remains a solid FantasyScore option because of his hands out of the backfield.

Lions | Joique Bell outgains Ameer Abdullah

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 18:25:11 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell and Ameer Abdullah each had seven carries in the Week 14 against the St. Louis Rams. Bell posted 50 rushing yards with two grabs for 25 yards while the rookie Abdullah ran for just 23 yards while hauling in two balls for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: When deciding between the Detroit RBs, Bell has the most fantasy appeal. However, both are solid pass catchers out of the backfield and could easily have big games against a terrible New Orleans Saints pass defense in Week 15.

Lions | Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell probable

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 14:56:48 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) and RB Joique Bell (shoulder) are both probable against the Oakland Raiders in Week 11. Johnson was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 20, while Bell practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be just fine and has a great opportunity against the weak Raiders corners. Stacking him with Matthew Stafford on FantasyScore is a fine strategy. Bell ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is part of a frustrating three-headed monster of a backfield, but this could be the week to use him as a sleeper against a top-10 fantasy matchup against the run.

Lions | Joique Bell practices in full

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:54:30 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be able to play against the Oakland Raiders in Week 11, but he has not produced much this season. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Lions | Joique Bell limited Wednesday

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 13:25:00 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been an inconsistent fantasy option all year. With Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick also in the mix, Bell should not be started unless an injury occurs to fellow running backs.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah not in doghouse

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 11:46:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah's diminished role in recent weeks has been a product of game situations and not because of the fumbling problems that he's had in his rookie season. "Every game's a little different, and I think some games you'll see him with the ball in his hands a little bit more, some games (you'll see) Joique Bell and Theo Riddick," head coach Jim Caldwell said. "I think you'll see them carry it some as well. So it just kind of depends on the ball game as to how we approach it." Abdullah had a season-low five snaps in the Week 8 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and finished with one carry for only three yards. He has only 201 yards and four fumbles since his 24-yard touchdown run on his first carry in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) still has heaps of potential and carries the most upside out of the Detroit running backs. However, it's been a struggle on a bad team that often falls behind early, and he has to deal with Bell and Riddick, too. Abdullah's role is expected to increase, but until we see proof, it's too hard to rely on him at FantasyScore.

Lions | Three Detroit regulars probable

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 13:19:29 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle), WR Calvin Johnson (non-injury) and QB Matthew Stafford (quadriceps) all practiced in full Friday, Oct. 30, and are probable for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs in London.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) and Stafford ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should be a popular stack on FantasyScore against a woeful Chiefs passing defense this weekend. Bell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has become an unreliable fantasy weapon and may find it tough to see notable touches in this three-headed monster of a backfield.

Lions | Joique Bell limited Thursday

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 14:41:18 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) was a full go yesterday, so this could indicate that he had a setback in practice Thursday. Stay tuned. Bell has been dealing with nagging injuries all year and has been overshadowed by both Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick in the backfield. He's very hard to rely on in both daily and traditional fantasy formats right now.

Lions | Joique Bell a full participant

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 15:39:31 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) had only three carries for 21 yards in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week. He's become an increasingly frustrating fantasy commodity in a disappointing backfield. Bell could very well be the third-best rushing option for Detroit these days, making him a low-end running back option on FantasyScore.
