2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bell is an oddity, as his production is bankable even though his playing time is not. Presumably because the Saints view him as a coverage liability, Bell only plays about three-quarters of defensive snaps, but he still had at least 83 tackles in each of his first three seasons. He's yet to intercept a pass, but six sacks and five forced fumbles help. He could be a breakout tackle source if fourth-round pick Chauncey Gardner-Johnson fails to replace Kurt Coleman as the third safety that formerly rotated at Bell's expense. Read Past Outlooks

Bell finished with seven tackles (five solo) and one tackle for a loss in the Saints' 30-28 win over the Texans on Monday.
Bell led the Saints in tackles Monday, and he should be in for another season of high-volume tackling. The fourth-year man from Ohio State finished second on the team last season with 88 tackles (62 solo).

Past Fantasy Outlooks
For a time it appeared Bell would be a major breakout IDP candidate in 2018 after the Saints passed on Kenny Vaccaro, but the signing of Kurt Coleman put that possibility to rest. Still, Bell has already shown the ability to provide low-ceiling but still mainstream IDP utility with 80-plus tackles and standout sack production, even in a three-safety defense. He did it last year with Vaccaro and Marcus Williams around, and there's no guarantee that Coleman plays as much as Vaccaro did, anyway.
Bell, the Saints' 2016 second-round pick, enjoyed a relatively successful rookie season in which he accounted for 87 tackles, one sack and four passes defensed. While he'll need at least a few interceptions in order to elevate to the next tier of the IDP ranks, the Ohio State product will be given every opportunity to do just that in 2017, especially with Jairus Byrd no longer in the fold.
The Saints traded up to select Bell in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but with both Kenny Vacarro and Jairus Byrd locked into starting roles, Bell will likely start the season as a reserve. There is hope that Bell could have some fantasy value during his rookie season, as Saints' defensive coordinator Dennis Allen frequently deployed a defensive scheme featuring three safeties last season, but the offseason signing of veteran Roman Harper likely further limits the rookie's upside.
