New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell ran 14 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys while posting one grab for three yards on his only target.
Fantasy Spin: The overall stat line wasn't great, but at least he was able to record the touchdown. It was his first rushing touchdown of the season, and first score overall since Week 1 against Buffalo. He'll look to keep it going in a rematch with the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in Week 7.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 14 times for 50 yards and scored his first touchdown since a receiving score in Week 1 vs Buffalo. Bell has been the centerpiece of the Jets offense so far playing a 94.3 percent snap share coming into the game, and head coach Adam Gase seemed determined to get his workhorse into the end zone. After a pass interference call in the end zone, the Jets gave Bell the ball not once but twice to score the first touchdown of the afternoon. Bell was limited in the passing game today with only a three-yard catch on one target, but was still the primary back used by New York as no other running back had more than three touches. Bell is a must-start running back despite a tough matchup vs New England in Week 7.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell will look to find the end zone for the first time since Week 1 on Sunday in a matchup with the Cowboys. Bell has had a solid floor in fantasy by playing 94.3 percent of the offensive snaps and leading the team in targets. His dominance in playing time and role in the passing game has kept Bell as a fantasy starter, but the Jets ineptitude on offense has limited his upside. That could change Sunday with starting QB Sam Darnold back under center. Bell should be considered an RB2 with upside Sunday against a Cowboys Defense that has allowed the fifth-most receiving yards to running backs.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell rushed for 43 yards on 15 carries while racking up 45 receiving yards on seven receptions in a loss to the Eagles. The Jets offense, again, could get absolutely nothing going with third-string quarterback Luke Falk under center, but Bell was able to salvage a decent fantasy day based on volume alone. Fantasy owners would love to see Bell get near the goal line once in a while, but they can take solace knowing no other Jet had more than two carries and Bell was tied for the team lead in targets so he'll continue to be featured in the offense. Once Sam Darnold (mono) is back in the lineup Bell should have more upside, but for now he's a high-floor low ceiling RB2 in a bad offense.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 43 yards on 15 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5. He also caught seven passes for 45 yards during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Bell was a big part of the offense against the Eagles but did not post great numbers. His value should increase once Sam Darnold returns, but he should be a No. 2 running back or flex option most weeks.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell will face a tough matchup coming off of his bye week when the Jets visit Philadelphia on Sunday. The Eagles Defense allows the fourth-fewest points to running backs and are well rested themselves after playing on Thursday night in Week 4. In addition to a tough Eagles D, Bell will share a backfield with third-string QB Luke Falk as starter Sam Darnold (mono) was not cleared for game action. Bell has played 96.3 percent of the Jets offensive snaps so far this season so he's a must-start in fantasy based on volume. However, owners should expect Bell to be in the RB2 conversation rather than the top-10 option he can be in a better situation.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell leads the league with 15 avoided tackles through Week 3, according to Pro Football Focus.
Fantasy Spin: On the flip side, Bell is only averaging 3.7 yards per touch in his return to the NFL, but the volume is there with Bell averaging a whopping 25.3 touches per contest. The good news is that QB Sam Danold's impending return should help prevent defenses from keying in on Bell every week. He remains a low-end RB1 going forward.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 35 yards on 18 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 3. He also caught four passes for 28 yards during the game.
Fantasy Spin: The Jets are down to their third-string quarterback, so the Patriots likely focused on stopping Bell this week. He should have more success when Sam Darnold returns and will continue to be a weekly starting option in all leagues.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 18 times for 35 yards and hauled in all four of his targets for 28 yards against the Patriots on Sunday. A 63-yard day is disappointing for fantasy owners, but considering the Jets only gained 105 yards of offense total things could have been worse for Bell. The Jets offense could get nothing going with third-string quarterback Luke Falk making his first career start on the road against a defense that is yet to allow a touchdown this season. If nothing else, fantasy owners can be satisfied Bell out-touched Ty Montgomery 22-2 and he is still the centerpiece of New York's offense. The Jets will be on bye in Week 4, but Bell will continue to be a must-start running back in fantasy moving forward.
New York Jets' RB Le'Veon Bell averaged a brutal 1.9 yards per carry on 18 attempts in Sunday's loss in New England.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell will face a tough test on Sunday against a Patriots Defense that is second in the league allowing only 37 rushing yards per game and has only allowed three points through two weeks. The Jets have had a hard time getting the running game going as Bell has only 128 yards through two games and is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry. Where Bell has thrived, however, is the passing game as he's made 16 catches on 19 targets so far this season and should continue to be heavily targeted with third-string QB Luke Falk making his first career start Sunday. Despite the tough matchup, Bell has a high floor thanks to his role in the passing game and is as sure a bet as any running back to see 20-plus touches making him a must-start option.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 68 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Sept. 16, and he added 10 receptions for 61 yards on his 10 targets.
Fantasy Spin: While Bell didn't get into the end zone, he had a pretty decent night of fantasy production despite the fact the Jets were starting, and then losing, their backup quarterback. He remains a legit fantasy option despite the quarterback turmoil for Gang Green. Next up is a trip to New England in Week 3.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 21 times for 68 yards and had 10 receptions for 61 yards in a 23-3 loss to the Browns Monday night. The Jets offense could do nothing with Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk playing quarterback, but Bell was still able to put up a decent game thanks to 31 touches, eight more than he had in Week 1 when he played every snap. Given the injuries to the Jets quarterbacks, scoring opportunities will be few and far between for Bell but he has a safe floor in fantasy with all the targets he'll get and almost no competition for touches in the backfield. Bell will be in the RB2 mix in a difficult matchup next week at New England.
New York Jets' RB Le'Veon Bell had 10 receptions for 61 yards but no touchdowns in Monday's loss against the Browns.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.
Fantasy Spin: Bell should receive plenty of touches this week with Sam Darnold sidelined and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) are both active on Monday night against the Browns. Bell was expected to play all along, and he should see plenty of touches against Cleveland, especially in the short passing game as a crutch for quarterback Trevor Siemian. Thomas will be making his season debut after not practicing much this week. At best, he'll be the third receiver behind Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. He has familiarity with Siemian from their time together in Denver, but Thomas would be a desperation DFS play this evening. He's not likely to play many snaps overall.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Bell is confident that he will be able to play this week and likely will be the focal point on offense with Sam Darnold sidelined. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues and likely will receive a lot of touches.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) was a limited participant in Saturday's practice and is officially questionable for the game Monday night against the Browns. The fact Bell was on the practice field is a good sign for his status Monday and Bell himself said on Twitter that he would be ok to play. Assuming Bell plays, an RB2 in fantasy given the Jets will be starting Trevor Siemian at quarterback and there are other injuries to the offensive line. Bell played every offensive snap in Week 1 so a small dip in usage is to be expected, but Bell carries a high floor in PPR as Siemian is known for checking down to the running backs in the passing game.
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 13.
Fantasy Spin: Bell appears to be on track to play in Week 2 and should receive plenty of touches with Sam Darnold sidelined. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues this week.
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (illness), DL John Franklin-Myers (foot), LB C.J. Mosley (groin), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) and DL Quinnen Williams (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 13. OT Kelvin Beachum (ankle), RB Le'Veon Bell (shoulder), WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring), DL Steve McLendon (hip), OG Brian Winters (shoulder) and OG Alex Lewis (shoulder) were limited in practice Friday. S Jamal Adams (hip), WR Robby Anderson (calf), C Ryan Kalil (calf), LB Frankie Luvu (hand) and S Rontez Miles (hip) were able to fully participate in practice Friday.
