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

Bell (knee/Achilles) still isn't participating in OTAs, the Lions' official website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell had minor surgeries on his knee and Achilles in January, but there hasn't been any indication that he's in danger of missing training camp. If he's still unavailable for mandatory minicamp (June 16-18), it might be time to start taking his absence more seriously. For now, Bell is still on track to lead the Detroit backfield, with Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah expected to mostly contribute in the passing game.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell has experienced the necessary upgrade in order to achieve active status for game day. However, coach Jim Caldwell was especially coy about Bell's potential to play Sunday at Green Bay, when he told MLive.com, "We'll see." Any Achilles injury is cause for long-term concern, which is likely dominating Caldwell's thought process with the postseason imminent. Nevertheless, it would be a shock if the Lions ruled out Bell for Week 17, considering his unhinged showing in drills Thursday.

Bell (Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell previously dealt with an Achilles issue in Week 12 of the 2013 season, and while he didn't miss the game, he mustered just 15 yards on six rushes. Although a healthy Reggie Bush could limit Bell yet again this year, the extent of the injury is unclear, keeping the door open for their normal split workload. Bell's activity level in drills could reveal his potential for the season finale, though, so owners should continue to monitor the situation as the weekend approaches.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

While he's not the biggest or fastest running back in the league, Bell made a major incursion on Reggie Bush's playing time last season, gaining 40 percent of the carries while looking even more explosive in the pass game than he did the year before. He's a true weapon in the open field, having produced more than 1,000 yards on 105 catches over the last two seasons, and he worked his way into a goal-line role last year too. Bell dealt with a knee issue over the offseason, but it doesn't sound like anything that'll limit him come training camp. He's played in all 16 games the last two years, so he's been durable in his backup/timeshare role. Like Bush, Bell may see his carry total reduced this year with the Lions remodeling their offense in the mold of the Saints, but both players could see a spike in receptions, making Bell a compelling and relatively low-priced option for PPR formats.

2013

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 backs, and his 52 receptions were fifth among NFL backs. Despite seeing 115 fewer touches than Mikel Leshoure, Bell's 899 total yards were only 113 less than the Lions starter produced. Unfortunately for Bell, the addition of Reggie Bush figures to limit his role in the backfield this season, particularly as a receiver. He'll likely need an injury to Bush or Leshoure to match the 134 touches he had last year.

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.
