Summary

Bell was re-signed by the Lions before free agency started, so you know they made keeping him a priority. All signs point to something close to a 50/50 split with Reggie Bush, and Bell should get the bulk of goal-line carries, making him almost as valuable as Bush if he can stay healthy. Bell is dealing with a knee issue that is sidelining him for OTAs, but there is no reason to think that he can't build on his mini-breakout of 2013 and turn into a very good flex, if not quality fantasy RB2 in 2014.

Latest News

Lions | Mikel Leshourse expected to compete (Wed Jul 23, 10:18 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is currently believed to be the fourth tailback on the club behind RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick heading into training camp and the preseason, but general manager Martin Mayhew expects Leshoure to compete for snaps. The team will use an offense similar to the New Orleans Saints, and they occasionally used a fourth tailback.

Our View: Leshoure still has natural talent. Injuries and inconsistencies have plagued his pro career. This could be his final year with the Lions, and he may need a fresh start to get the most out of his skill set.

Lions | Joique Bell expects to be ready (Wed Jul 23, 10:17 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) missed most of the offseason due to a knee injury, although he has said his condition is minor and he expects to be ready for the start of training camp next week.

Our View: Bell is a talented runner and receiver out of the backfield. The team should ease him back into practice as he comes back from this knee injury.
