Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:38:35 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell missed the first quarter of the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears due to a violation of team rules.

Fantasy Tip: Bell still ended up with an impressive stat line for FantasyScore owners who started him. If you were wondering why he got off to such a slow start, here is the reason.

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:01:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell carried 13 times for a game-high 74 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears. He also had two receptions for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has rushed for 62 or more yards in four straight games, and five of the past six outings. He also has four rushing touchdowns in the past four games while also grabbing a receiving touchdown. He has emerged as a solid RB2 or flex play in all fantasy formats.

Lions | Detroit not dropping passes

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:40:26 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed three percent more of his passes this year than last year, and the team's reduction in dropped passes is likely the key. Last year, the Lions dropped 8.1 percent of passes. No Lions player has more than three drops on the year, with RB Joique Bell, TE Eric Ebron and WR Calvin Johnson with three drops each.

Lions | Probable status for Joique Bell

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:08:27 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Bell costs $5,400 at FantasyScore, and the Patriots have allowed an average of 20.76 fantasy points to running backs, although their D has stiffened of late. Bell will be a safer play if Reggie Bush (ankle) sits out again.

Lions | Joique Bell, Reggie Bush limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:59:23 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell (ankle) and Reggie Bush (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Bell did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Both running backs are expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Bell ($5,400) should be the more trusted FantasyScore lineup option, though, and the Pats have allowed an average of 18.63 fantasy points to running backs. Bush costs slightly less than Bell at $5,200.

Lions | Joique Bell has ankle injury

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:45:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, due to an ankle injury. Bell left game briefly in Week 11 because of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($5,400) should be fine unless he suffers a setback this week. The New England Patriots, the Lions' Week 12 opponent, have allowed just over 20 fantasy points to running backs this year, which makes Bell appealing. However, the backfield picture could be cloudy if Reggie Bush (ankle) re-enters the fold.

Lions | Joique Bell sits Wednesday

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 12:38:45 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's injury was not specified, assuming there is even an injury. Keep tabs on his status as the week goes on. Reggie Bush and Theo Riddick will be involved even if Bell plays.

Lions | Reggie Bush out Sunday

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 15:39:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) will be held out of the game Sunday, Nov. 16, in Week 11. RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will split time in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) and Riddick ($4,300; 8.6%) are both fairly priced flex options on FantasyScore this week against the New England Patriots.

Lions | Reggie Bush sees light work

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 07:34:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush played just 19 offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 9, which was 28% of the offense. In contrast, RB Joique Bell played 67% of the snaps and RB Theo Riddick played 10% of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bush had four carries for 20 yards and one reception for five yards in Week 10. Clearly, he has been banged up, but one has to wonder if this is also part of his inevitable decline at the age of 29. Avoid him on FantasyScore until he becomes more involved in the offense.

Lions | Joique Bell likely to carry load

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:10:18 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is likely to see a lion's share of the carries in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: A source indicated Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely to be rested again, so Bell would be the top back. George Winn and Theo Riddick could also see carries, but Bell is the best option and he has great hands out of the backfield. In FantasyScore leagues, Bell is a steal at $4,700 (or 9.4 percent of the cap).
