Week 4: vs Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Chicago signed free agent running back Joique Bell, formerly of the Lions, to their roster on Tuesday to provide some sort of depth behind new starter Jordan Howard - Jeremy Langford (ankle injury) and Kadeem Carey (hamstring injury) are both likely sidelined for this contest, so the team had to make a move just in case Howard (12/67/0 rushing with eight targets for 6/56/0 receiving so far this year) goes down to injury, too. 'I think there's guys in the league that do [shoulder the load for a team],' head coach John Fox said on Monday, September 26. 'Remember, Jordan is a rookie that we've seen for three real NFL football games. So we'll kind of evaluate as we move forward.' What is without question is that Howard's NFL opportunity has arrived - we'll see if he can claim the top job in Chicago while Langford rehabs his ankle. Howard impressed after Langford went down in Week Three with 9/45/0 rushing and six targets for 4/47/0 receiving - just missing 100 yards combined in part-time action. The Lions' rush defense has averaged 114.7 rushing yards allowed per game (21st in the NFL) but leads the NFL with zero rushing scores surrendered so far. Over the first three games of the season, the Lions are ranked as the seventh-least generous rush defense to opposing backs on a per-game basis, averaging 14.3 fantasy points allowed per game on average. This looks like a tough divisional matchup for the rookie back.

Bears | Chicago signing Joique Bell (Tue Sep 27, 02:30 PM) - Free-agent RB Joique Bell (Lions) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Our View: With Jeremy Langford (ankle) down, the Bears had to add another body at the RB position. We should see rookie Jordan Howard as the team's lead back, but Bell gives them veteran depth. In fact, Kadeem Carey (hamstring) is also banged up so we could see Bell as the primary backup to Howard this week.

Lions | Detroit works out Joique Bell (Tue Sep 20, 05:37 PM) - Free-agent RB Joique Bell (Lions) worked out for the Detroit Lions Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Our View: Bell knows the system and would give the team veteran depth behind Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington. Don't expect much from him if he comes back to the Lions.
