2013 Fantasy Football Outlook

At 5-11, 220, Bell doesn't offer great speed, but he has good open-field vision, and his strong base makes him hard to bring down. His 5.0 YPC (on 82 attempts) was easily tops among Lions running back...

Under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Bell will continue to work in tandem with Reggie Bush, the Detroit Free Press reports. "I think they both have their specific role," Lombardi noted, while adding that "it's hard for one running back to get all the carries. So much like they did last year, I see these guys kind of having a split role and both being very productive."

Joique Bell: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bell agreed to a two-year, $7 million extension, including $4.3 million guaranteed, with the Lions on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After two productive campaigns, the former undrafted free agent has cashed in. To date, Bell has been a modicum of health, as opposed to backfield mate Reggie Bush, thereby providing insurance in case the latter suffers through injuries in the coming seasons. Through two full seasons, Bell, a dual threat, has totaled 248 carries for 1,064 yards (4.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns, while accumulating 105 receptions (on 138 targets) for 1,032 yards.
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said that Bell, who is a restricted free agent, will be back with the Lions in 2014, MLive.com reports. "He's going to be here," Mayhew said Friday. "We met with his agent a couple of nights ago and had a good discussion. There is a possibility we might work on a long-term deal with him, but either way, he's going to be with us."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

If the two sides can't reach a long-term agreement, the Lions will likely use a second-round RFA tender on Bell, who went undrafted and wouldn't be attached to draft compensation under an original-round tender. The 27-year-old running back isn't enticing enough for a team to part with a second-round draft pick, and the second-round tender of approximately $2 million surely looks good from the Lions' perspective. Assuming he sticks with the Lions -- a rather safe assumption -- Bell will likely reprise his role from 2013 as Reggie Bush's backup. In 2013, Bell rode that role to 650 rushing yards, 547 receiving yards on 53 receptions, and eight touchdowns. His numbers did get a boost from Bush missing two games due to injuries, but it's probably fair to expect the same from Bush in 2014.
Bell (knee) had eight carries for 31 rushing yards and four catches on four targets for 25 receiving yards Sunday against the Vikings.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell's absence Wednesday was likely a precautionary measure, but with Reggie Bush avoiding the injury report this week, the eventual workload afforded each running back could be unknown until Sunday's game in Minnesota commences. Keep in mind, though, that Bell touched the rock 30 times (20 carries and 10 catches) versus Bush's 14 (12 and two, respectively) following the latter's second-quarter fumble. As a result, a similar breakdown may come to pass for a second week in a row.

Bell (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell took over the reins from Reggie Bush following his second-quarter fumble in Week 16, posting 20 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown, with 10 receptions for 63 yards. The work could oscillate back to Bush, if Bell is unable to attain a semblance of health by Sunday, but the week of practice should ultimately hash out the RB pecking order.
Bell had a big game in Sunday's overtime loss to the Giants, rushing for 91 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown. He also caught all 10 of the passes thrown his way, finishing with 63 receiving yards.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After a fumble by Reggie Bush in the second quarter, Bell saw most of the work, including a one-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Heís been a great receiver out of the backfield all season, but he rewarded fantasy owners with a great rushing performance Sunday. Heís been an important part of Detroitís offense this year, and could produce solid numbers in Week 17 at Minnesota, if Bush's role is reduced.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

The Lions' running back situation is a bit unsettled at the top due to injury, but Bell is in the second or third tier heading into camp. He'll only get a chance if injuries force Detroit's hand.

2011

Bell, fresh of a spectacular preseason, will start the year as the Saints' fourth running back behind Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles. However, with Sproles likely to serve as a Reggie Bush-esque jack-of-all-trades, an injury to either Thomas or Ingram could open the door for Bell to be a major contributor with Chris Ivory to start the year on the PUP list and coach Sean Payton's penchant for a dual running back system.

2010

Bell, a Wayne State product and the recipient of the Harlon Hill Award in 2009 as the best player in Division II football following a 2,084-rushing yards campaign with 29 touchdowns, signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in the offseason. He's looking like a practice squad candidate, but if the Bills decided to rid themselves of the troublesome Marshawn Lynch via trade, there would be a chance for Bell to sneak into the No. 3 role.
