2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-28-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Bell's strong play earned him substantial playing time and forced a two-back system in Detroit. Expect to see more carries (166 last year) and perhaps see the same number of receptions (53). He will split time with Reggie Bush. If Bush were to get injured (which would not be all that shocking), Bell could become a very capable RB1. The former Wayne State back has value in all formats, especially PPR. Bell is likely the league's best handcuff option for fantasy owners. He is also good enough to stick in the starting lineup every week.

Latest Update

Jul-31-14 Lions RB Joique Bell 'showing no signs of rust' after injury

Mlive is at Lions training camp and finally getting to see Detroit RB Joique Bell practicing. Reporter Justin Rogers had praise for Bell including "[Bell] missed OTAs and minicamp while recovering from knee injuries, but you wouldn't know it with the way he's started off training camp." Rogers also mentions he has 'cut and accelerated with ease' during team drills. This is good news for the Lions after they signed him to a 3 year/$9.3 million dollar contract in the offseason, which included $4.3 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bell had an breakout 2013 and is expected to do the same this year. RB Reggie Bush has passing duties and Bell should be the ground-and-pound back but also has soft hands to be sprinkled into the passing game. Now that he's 100% healthy, all systems are go for him to be a RB2 with upside.
