Le'Veon Bell Fantasy Football News 2019

11:11am EST 11/10/19

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (knee, ankle) is active for today’s game against the Giants. We haven’t heard anything about Bell being limited, so he remains a low-end RB1 in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (knee, ankle) is expected to play against the Giants today. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Bell won't be at 100% today but remains a strong volume bet and a low-end RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (knee, ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 10 after putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Adam Gase said Friday that Bell "looks good" for this weekend's game against the Giants. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. Even at less than 100%, an active Bell remains a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Friday that RB Le'Veon Bell "looks good" for this weekend's game against the Giants. He's dealing with knee and ankle injuries and won't be at 100% on Sunday. But an active Bell remains a solid volume-based fantasy play.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Wednesday that RB Le'Veon Bell is dealing with knee and ankle injuries. There's no structural damage, though. And while Bell won't practice on Wednesday, it sounds like he has a good chance to play against the Giants this weekend. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jets HC Adam Gase said RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice on Wednesday and will be monitored beyond that. His knee injury reportedly isn't serious, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play against the Giants this weekend. Bell's absence would leave the Jets' backfield to some type of committee with Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell and possibly Josh Adams.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell's knee injury isn't serious, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A source tells Schefter that Bell is "good." It sounds like he'll be available for this weekend's game against the Giants, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, HC Adam Gase said. Bell is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Bell's absence would leave Ty Montgomery as the likely leader of backfield committee alongside Bilal Powell.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared to play, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after missing the last 3 games and 4 weeks. It's obviously a huge boost to a Jets passing game that had been forced to turn to QB Luke Falk. Darnold's return puts WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder back on the fantasy radar, although we'd still try to take a wait-and-see approach with this passing game for now.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is active for tonight's game against the Browns. He got a shoulder MRI during the week and was officially questionable, but there don't seem to be any limitations.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Browns. He got in limited practices on Friday and Saturday after getting an MRI on that shoulder on Thursday. Both Bell and the team have seemed confident that he'll play vs. Cleveland, but we'll look for another update on his status on Sunday morning.

The MRI on Jets RB Le'Veon Bell's shoulder revealed "no major damage or tears," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. So Bell will presumably be ready for Monday night's game against the Browns. QB Sam Darnold's absence hurts, but Bell's volume keeps him in must-start territory.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is missing practice Thursday and getting an MRI after experiencing shoulder soreness. HC Adam Gase said Thursday morning that he still hopes Bell can play Monday night, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. If he can't, of course, Ty Montgomery would step in. We'll see about the MRI results.

The New York Post's Brian Costello believes Jets RB Ty Montgomery "could be a significant piece" of the offense this season. The former Packer and Raven has been "one of the most impressive players" in camp, Costello adds. Although he's flamed out in lead roles, Montgomery is a plus pass-catcher and is still just 26. We're not expecting him to see enough action to be a real fantasy option. But he could put a dent in RB Le'Veon Bell's volume.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have reached agreement with RB Le'Veon Bell. That positions him in a backfield with Elijah McGuire as the lead incumbent. Bell, of course, is coming off a full year away from football, so we'll have to track his progress in his return this offseason. He joins a Jets team, however, that is spending liberally on both offense and defense in free agency. Bell will make for a risky pick inside the 1st round of fantasy football drafts, given that we don't know how good the Jets offense can be or what kind of target share Bell can expect. But he obviously carries as much upside as just about any player at the position. Bell's arrival gives another boost to QB Sam Darnold's 2nd-year outlook.

Update: Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report it's a 4-year deal worth $52.5 million in total money.

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell did not report by today's 4 pm ET deadline and will not play this season. So ends the 2018 Bell saga. He ends up missing the entire campaign and forfeiting $14.5 million. The Steelers would owe Bell about $25 million if they franchise-tag him again next season, so he's fully expected to hit free agency in March. James Conner will serve as Pittsburgh's feature back the rest of this year.
