2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Joique Bell sits in a very clichť position as the 2015 camp season opens up. Heís the aging (29 in August), injured vet that has young dogs nipping at his heels, and gunning for his job. The thing is, adversity like this is what Bell had to handle just to get a chance in the NFL. Heís overcome tremendous odds just to get this far, and if you think heíll disappear from being a part of the Lions offense in 2015 youíre naive, or have already drafted Ameer Abdullah! Bell was exactly what he was in 2014 as what he was in 2013. A sub 4.0 yards-per-carry runner who gets whatís blocked, stonewalls blitzes, and wins at the goal line. Bellís steady play is a valuable asset to a team that has playoff aspirations. Despite the drafting of Ameer Abdullah, donít discount the 16 total touchdowns and 2,379 total yards over the last two seasons that Bell has produced. Assuming heíll be sufficiently recovered from the offseason surgeries, Bell will still have a role on this team, abet a diminished one. While Bell is steady, the Lions want more from their running game, and will give Abdullah plenty of opportunities, many at Bellís expense. Look for a downtick of touches and total yards, but the red zone opportunities should still be there. Bellís low-upside and tenable grasp on the starting job donít inspire much fantasy confidence, but there will be value here as a RB3/4.

Comment: Bell (Achilles, knee) will lead the Lions RBBC, but will likely frustrate fantasy owners in the process.

News From The Past 90 Days
Joique Bell "I'm going to rush for over 1200 yds"
Lions RB not concerned about injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 30, 9:00 am

Detroit Lions
Joique Bell isn't worried about the knee injury that has sidelined him for the entirety of this offseason. He isn't worried about the Achilles either. "I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards," Bell told MLive.com. "That's the minimum. If I do less than that, I'll be surprised. I'll be disappointed. "Anything more than that, I wouldn't be surprised at all." (MLive.com)

FFToday's Take: Detroit runners have had a rough time reaching 1000 yards in recent years let alone 1200. Bell (Achilles, knee) is expected to be ready for training camp and head coach Jim Caldwell has expressed his interest to run the ball more. However, Rookie Ameer Abdullah is expected to have a role in the offense that will limit Bell's opportunities. If Bell were to hit his ceiling of 250 carries, he'd need to average 4.8 ypc to hit 1200 yards.


Injury Joique Bell expected to be ready for camp
Minor clean up procedures on knee and Achilles

Running back Joique Bell hasnít participated in OTAs this spring as he continues to rehab from offseason surgery. Bell should be ready to go by the time training camp starts. (DetroitLions.com)

FFToday's Take: Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi hinted that Bell will be eased into training camp as he comes off "minor clean up" procedures on his knee and Achilles in late January. Minor or not, it's still surgery and it's a situation to watch once training camp begins. The Lions drafted RB Ameer Abdullah in the second round of the NFL Draft.


Abdullah has caught Stafford's eye in OTAs
Rookie RB has "great hands" and "good feel for route-running"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 8, 5:15 pm

Detroit Lions
Itís tough this time of year to see the true impact rookie RB Ameer Abdullah will have on the Lionsí offense in 2015. The team drafted him in the second round of the draft last month to be a big-play threat in their offense and potentially a return man on special teams. Without pads, itís tough to truly measure his ability, but count QB Matthew Stafford in as an early fan. ďI think as a runner he has great balance,Ē Stafford said after a recent OTA practice. ďHeís obviously a low-to-the-ground guy. He seems to hide pretty well behind there and heís got good vision. Out of the backfield, catching the ball, heís great. Heís got great hands. He has a good feel for route running." (detroitlions.com)

FFToday's Take: Joique Bell has yet to participate in on-the-field activities this offseason as he continues to rehab from surgeries to his knee and Achilles, opening the door for Abdullah to take some first-team reps along with third-year back Theo Riddick. The No. 54 overall pick is slated to be the team's primary kick returner, but it seems only a matter of time before he is leading a backfield committee given his competition. Abdullah should easily hold flex value in fantasy leagues this season.
