Summary

With Reggie Bush moving on to San Francisco, Joique Bell enters 2015 as the lead back in Detroit after a solid 2014 season in which he led the team in carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. Bell is a powerful runner and at 220 pounds has shown an ability to pick up the tough yardage on 3rd-and-short and down near the goal line. Bell scored 8 touchdowns in both 2013 and 2014 and should put up a similar total again in 2015. Bell has also been an effective receiver out of the backfield and shows surprising burst in the open field for a guy his size. Bell turns 29-years-old during training camp and having only averaged 3.9 YPC each of the last two seasons cannot afford to lose a step. He will face stiff competition for the lead back role in the person of 2nd round draft choice Ameer Abdullah. If Bell can hold off Abdullah for another year, he should remain a solid RB2 in all formats. But even if Abdullah does emerge as the lead back at some point in 2015, Bell should retain the goal line carries and remain a big part of the committee. (May 15)
