Player Notes
Dec 13 12:43am ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 21 times for 87 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15. Bell also had two receptions for one yard.

Fantasy Spin: Yep, you read that headline correctly. Bell, who accounted for 1,946 total yards during his final season in Pittsburgh, hadn't topped 70 rushing yards in a game this year until Thursday night when he ran for 87 in a 21-point loss to the Ravens. Obviously some of Bell's early-season struggles can be traced to Sam Darnold's absence, but he simply hasn't been the same player for the Jets. He'll doubtless be motivated in Week 16 in his first meeting with the Steelers. That motivation runs both ways, though, and Bell could have some really boom-or-bust potential in that one.

From TheHuddle

Dec 13 12:00am ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 87 yards while catching both of his targets for one yard in the passing game. Bell missed the Week 14 game vs Miami and his fresh legs were leaned on heavily in this one as no other Jet had more than two rushing attempts. The 87 yards for Bell are a season-high as he can't seem to get going fully behind a questionable offensive line in New York. The good news for Bell's fantasy managers is even during this rough season, Bell usually can find average production based on how much work he gets. He shouldn't have much competition for touches next week in an ultimate revenge game vs the Pittsburgh Steelers.

From RotoBaller

Dec 11 4:43pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 11, and has been taken off the injury report ahead of the game Thursday, Dec. 12, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Spin: Bell has recently said he feels he hasn't received enough work this season and trade rumors are already circling just one year into his free-agent deal. He has a tough matchup this week, but he is the team's best offensive player and should be given plenty of opportunities.

From TheHuddle

Dec 11 3:20pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is recovered from his illness and will suit up for the Jets Thursday in Baltimore. Bell missed the Jets Week 14 win with the flu, but has been a full participant in practice and should be good to go Thursday. Running lanes will be hard to come by against a stout Ravens Defense that gives up the fourth-fewest points to opposing running backs, but Bell won't have to split carries with Bilal Powell (ankle, illness) and Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) doubtful and questionable respectively. Fantasy owners who used an early pick on Bell have been disappointed this season, but would be hard-pressed to find a spare back with 20-plus touch upside. Start Bell as an RB2 and hope he bowls his way into the end zone as he's yet to have a 100-yard day this season.

From RotoBaller

Dec 10 8:03pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) practiced in full Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Spin: Bell sat out the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins due to illness, but he has put in two full practice sessions to start this week. He's a mid-tier RB2 for the game Thursday, Dec. 12, against the Baltimore Ravens.

From TheHuddle

Dec 10 5:23pm ET

New York Jets S Jamal Adams (ankle), OT Chuma Edoga (knee), TE Ryan Griffin (ankle), CB Arthur Maulet (calf), CB Brian Poole (concussion), RB Bilal Powell (ankle, illness), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) and DL Quinnen Williams (neck) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 10. OT Kelvin Beachum (ankles), S Matthias Farley (ankle), DL Steve McLendon (knee, hip), RB Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) and DL Nathan Shepherd (ankle) were limited. RB Le'Veon Bell (illness), CB Maurice Canady (shoulder), OL Tom Compton (ankle), QB Sam Darnold (knee, thumb), QB David Fales (elbow) and LB Paul Worrilow (quad) participated in full.

From TheHuddle

Dec 10 3:03pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is among the players the team is expected to make available via trade this offseason, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Bell is averaging only 49.1 yards rushing behind one of the league's worst offensive lines in his first season with the Jets, and it is becoming increasingly clear head coach Adam Gase either can't find a way to keep him involved in the offense or doesn't want to. A trade will be hard to accomplish as well, as the Jets would take a $15.5 million cap hit if they deal him and his hypothetical new team would have to find a way to fit one of the larger contracts at his position onto the roster.

From TheHuddle

Dec 9 7:23pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) fully participated in practice Monday, Dec. 9. The Jets did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Spin: Bell did not play in the Week 14 game but appears to be on track to play this week. He will have a tough matchup but can still be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues since he will be involved in the running and passing game.

From TheHuddle

Dec 9 7:00pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (flu) is "pretty close to 100 percent," according to head coach Adam Gase. Bell didn't practice last Thursday or Friday and was absent from the Jets 22-21 win over the Dolphins in Week 14. This is great news for the Jets who lost backup Bilal Powell to an ankle injury late vs Miami with a quick turnaround this Thursday at Baltimore. The matchup is brutal for Bell, but assuming he's fully recovered he should get his usual 20-plus touches and be in the RB2 mix based on volume. Ty Montgomery would be the next man up for New York should Bell have a setback and should see some passing downs work, not enough to warrant an add in fantasy, however.

From RotoBaller

Dec 7 5:20pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (illness) has been officially ruled out for the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins this Sunday at 1 pm ET. The timing is not ideal for fantasy football owners, with most leagues starting their first round playoff matchups this week and now missing a top running back. Expect Bilal Powell to step in as the leading running back for the Jets on Sunday, with Ty Montgomery likely seeing increased usage as well.

From RotoBaller

Dec 7 5:03pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) was downgraded from questionable to out Saturday, Dec. 7, and won't play Sunday, Dec. 8, against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Spin: It's a big blow to fantasy managers who won't have Bell available in a fantastic matchup. Backups Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery will handle the work out of the backfield but are both risky flex options as they split time.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 7:13pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: It appears like Bell will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active, but players should have other options ready in case he is ruled out.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 5:50pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (illness) was sent home from Jets practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins. The Jets will have more information on Bell's status on Saturday, but Bilal Powell needs to be picked up immediately if he's available. Whoever starts in the New York backfield will face a good matchup with a Dolphins Defense that allows the fifth-most points to opposing running backs.

From RotoBaller

Dec 6 5:23pm ET

New York Jets CB Brian Poole (concussion) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. S Jamal Adams (ankle), OT Chuma Edoga (knee), S Matthias Farley (rib, ankle) and CB Arthur Maulet (calf) did not take part in practice all week and are listed as doubtful. RB Le'Veon Bell did not practice for a second straight day on Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable. CB Maurice Canady (quad, illness), TE Ryan Griffin (illness), DL Steve McLendon (knee, hip), LB Paul Worrilow (quad), DL Henry Anderson (shoulder), OT Kelvin Beachum (ankles) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) were limited Friday and are also listed as questionable, OG Alex Lewis (elbow), WR Jamison Crowder (knee), QB Sam Darnold (knee, thumb) and QB David Fales (elbow) logged a full practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 1:23pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury) on Friday, Dec. 6, sat out a second consecutive day of practice with an illness, and head coach Adam Gase said he's unsure if Bell will be able to play Sunday, Dec. 8, in Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Bad timing for Bell owners who will need to be extra vigilant up until kickoff. If Bell can't go, it will likely be a combo of Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery filling in, but neither would be much more than a dart-throw flex option.

From TheHuddle

Dec 5 2:23pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury) sat out practice Thursday, Dec. 5, with an illness.

Fantasy Spin: We'll see if he's back at it Friday, and if so, he projects as a high-end RB2 for Sunday's plus-matchup against the visiting Dolphins.

From TheHuddle

Dec 5 10:10am ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell has had a rough first year in green and white averaging just 3.2 yards per carry and scoring just four total touchdowns through 13 games. Despite the rough season, a juicy matchup with a porous Dolphins run defense should have Bell in fantasy lineups once again this week. Miami gives up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs and the Jets should focus on giving Bell the ball. Last week the Jets only gave Bell 10 carries against a bad Bengals run defense and were rightfully panned in the New York media for their game plan vs Cincinnati. Expect the coaching staff to learn from their mistake and feed Bell 20-plus touches this weekend putting Bell in the low-end RB1 conversation based on volume and matchup.

From RotoBaller

Dec 1 5:43pm ET

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 10 times for 32 yards in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals while adding four grabs for 35 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Spin: Bell's performance disappointing, as was the overall production of the Bengals offense against the previously winless Bengals. Bell will look to bounce back in Week 14 against the New York Jets.

From TheHuddle

Dec 1 5:40pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 10 times for just 32 yards in a loss to the Bengals Sunday. Bell added four catches for 35 yards in another disappointing game for fantasy owners that used an early pick on the former Steeler. The Bengals had the worst run defense in the NFL coming into this game but the Jets ran the ball just 17 times as the game script tilted away from the run game early. To make matters worse for Bell, he had a season-long 22 -yard run erased via penalty as the Jets offensive line continues to struggle to provide running room. Bell will be in the RB2-mix next week with another good matchup against the Dolphins.

From RotoBaller

Nov 29 2:50pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell has been a bit of a disappointment for fantasy managers that invested an early pick on the former Steeler, but things could change in a big way this week for Bell vs a familiar opponent. Bell has struggled to run the ball this year playing behind a worse offensive line than he had in Pittsburgh, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. He is yet to have 100 rushing yards in a game and has just three rushing scores on the year. For his running struggles, Bell makes up for it some as a receiver. He has four receiving touchdowns and is the second-most targeted player on the Jets. Start Bell expecting him to get his usual 20-plus touches against a Bengals Defense that he should be able to have RB1-type success against.
