Description: Lions running back Joique Bell's fantasy value appears will take a hit with the addition of Theo Riddick to the mix.
Insight: With Reggie Bush, Bell and Riddick all looking for their share of the workload, we don't think any are fantasy worthy. At least not until we see how it plays out.
 
10/26/2014 12:57:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell was expected to have a big day against Atlanta with Reggie Bush inactive.
Insight: It didn't happen. Bell rushed for just 39 yards and Theo Riddick did the bulk of the receiving out of the backfield. Ugh!
 
10/26/2014 8:44:00 AM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell could end up being an RB1 in Week 8, due to the massive injuries to the Lions offense.
Insight: Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson and three tight ends are all inactive for this one. That makes Bell along with Golden Tate great fantasy options against the Falcons.
 
10/23/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell may have the bulk of the backfield work to himself in Week 8 as reggie Bush continues to struggle with an ankle injury.
Insight: Bush has admitted that the ankle is bothering him. His absence would make Bell a solid fantasy option.
 
10/19/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell had 48 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown against the Saints.
Insight: Although that is an average of below 3.0 yards per carry, Bell looked better than Reggie Bush. Bell is ahead of Bush on fantasy depth charts.
 
10/12/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell scored a touchdown in Week 6 versus Minnesota.
Insight: He had 18 carries for 74 yards, making the touchdown huge for fantasy owners. If Reggie Bush is unable to play next week, Bell will maintain his RB2 status.
 
10/12/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell is active and starting against the Vikings.
Insight: Bell missed last week, but with Reggie Bush inactive, Bell should be in line for a ton of touches. Get him into your lineups, as he is a RB2 on the day.
 
10/11/2014 10:21:00 AM
Description: ESPN reporter Michael Rothstein predicts Lions running back Joique Bell to receive between 15-to-18 carries against the Vikings this Sunday.
Insight: Reggie Bush is not expected to play, so Bell will be the go-to back for the Lions. Minnesota has allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opponents running backs, so Bell could be in for his best fantasy day of the year.
 
10/9/2014 5:56:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell (concussion) is practicing in full ahead of Week 6.
Insight: With Reggie Bush (ankle) looking unlikely to play, Bell should be in for a major workload. He will be a RB2 with upside this week against Minnesota.
 
10/5/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell is inactive against the Bills on Sunday.
Insight: This was expected. Reggie Bush owners are happy since he will get all the carries out of the backfield.
 
10/3/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell missed all the practices this week so can't be expected to play on Sunday.
Insight: Bell had already been questionable before the last game with a knee issue. It leaves on Reggie Bush as a running back with solid fantasy value backed up by just George Winn.
 
9/28/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell left Sunday's game with a possible concussion.
Insight: Bell had already been questionable for the game with a knee issue. It leaves on Reggie Bush as a running back as Theo Riddick is also watching from the sidelines.

Description: Lions running back Joique Bell (knee) has been limited in practice this week, but most think its just managing the issue, nit a major problem and he'll be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: Bell has carried the ball 25 times over the first two games, but has fumbled the ball once in each of the first two games. It doesn't matter how well you run, if you put the ball on the turf, you won't get many opportunities.
 
9/15/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell continues to get more work than Reggie Bush, but there is a major concern for fantasy owners.
Insight: Bell has fumbled the ball once in each of the first two games, though he recoved the miscue in the season opener. It doesn't matter how well you run, if you put the ball on the turf, you won't get many opportunities.
 
9/14/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell had twice as many touches in Sunday's game against Carolina than Reggie Bush.
Insight: Neither running back was very productive on the ground, but Bell caught six passes for 61 yards. He also rushed for 36 yards on 10 carries. Bush gained 26 rushing yards on six carries and caught two passes for six yards. At this point, Bell has just as much value as Bush does because it looks like they will truly share the backfield this season.

Description: Lions running back Joique Bell (knee) "cut and accelerated with ease" during team portions of practice Tuesday, according to mlive.com.

The 27-year-old had 1,197 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns on 219 touches (166 carries) last season.

Insight: Bell was one of fantasy's pleasant surprises last season, contributing 1,201 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns in his 16 appearances. He won't see as big a workload as Reggie Bush but Bell is still worth owning in all formats.
