Lions RB Joique Bell probable for finale against Vikings


Lions RB Joique Bell probable for finale against Vikings

The Detroit Lions will likely have the services of "backup" RB Joique Bell @JoiqueBell (knee) on Sunday, despite being limited in practice on Friday. Bell looks to contiue proving his worth to the Lions heading into restricted free agency. Bell took the majority of snaps ahead of RB Reggie Bush @ReggieBush week 16 after a first half Bush fumble.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bell has proven to be a valuble fantasy commodity this year, and even if you already have Bush on your roster, Bell is worthy of start along side of him. After putting up 154 total yards in a week a 16 loss to the Giants, expect HC Jim Schwartz to go with the hot hand approach yet again. Bell also reeled in 10 catches this week and is tied with Bush in receptions on the year. He is a RB2/3 in standard leagues and a solid RB 2 in PPR leagues.

Schwartz may be coaching his last game with the Lions, but the organization should make sure it's not Bell's last game in Detroit. While Bell has fantasy RB 2 talent, where he ends up and his role on that team will determine his value in next years draft.
