View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • The Browns drafted Bell (99th overall) at almost exactly the same spot they chose Anthony Schwartz (91st) a year earlier.
  • Bell racked up 232 receptions across 3 years at Purdue. That included an 86-1,035-7 breakout season as a 19-year-old freshman. Bell played 85.3% of snaps and drew 25.2% of targets that season.
  • He benefited from a high-volume passing offense but led each of those Boilermakers teams in receptions and yards.
  • Bell tested poorly at the Scouting Combine, including a 10th-percentile 40-yard dash, 19th-percentile burst score, 8th-percentile agility score – and even a 13th-percentile catch radius.
  • Cleveland coaches told him soon after the draft to get ready to play the slot. That will require some transition. Bell played just 12.3% of his pass snaps in the slot across his college career.
  • "I think he has versatility outside and inside," HC Kevin Stefanski said in mid-May. "I do think he has a natural competitiveness both in route-running and in route-catching, and the ability in the route-running game to set people up and drop your weight. Those type of things."
  • Cleveland dumped its most frequent slot man of the past 4 years, Jarvis Landry, this offseason.
  • None of the presumed top 4 WRs on the 2022 roster has primarily played in the slot to this point. Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz have each spent 20-25% of their NFL pass snaps in the slot to date.
  • That could mean opportunity for Bell to lock down the job inside. But the offense also could look very different depending on whether the NFL suspends Deshaun Watson.
  • The Browns have run at the 4th and 7th highest rates in the league in 2 seasons under Stefanski. Heavy financial investments into Cooper, Deshaun Watson and even TE David Njoku this offseason could signal a further lean toward the pass – if Watson’s available.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

It’s tough to envision Bell becoming a big 2022 fantasy factor. It’ll take a full season of Deshaun Watson to make Cleveland a high-upside passing offense, and that seems less likely by the week. Bell faces competition with Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz for the 2nd and 3rd WR spots in an offense whose top wideout ranked 53rd in total PPR points last season and 36th the year before. There’s some long-term upside to Bell for dynasty leagues, at least.

Amari Cooper, WR CLE

8:59am EST 12/21/22

Cooper receives rest day ahead of Week 16

Browns WR Amari Cooper (hip) did not participate in Tuesday’s practice. Fortunately, Cooper’s absence was classified as a rest day. So nothing alarming there for now. Teammate David Bell (toe) was a limited practice participant, so today’s update will be helpful in determining his availability for Saturday’s game vs. the Saints. Stay tuned.

Browns WR David Bell (thumb, toe) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Ravens. Demetric Felton figures to replace Bell as Cleveland’s primary slot receiver but is only in play as a flier in Saturday DFS tournaments.

Browns WR David Bell (thumb, toe) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Ravens. He didn't practice all week and won't play on Saturday, according to The Score's Jordan Schultz. Bell's absence will leave WRs Michael Woods and Demetric Felton behind Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Browns WR Amari Cooper drew a target on 32.4% of QB Jacoby Brissett's dropbacks in Sunday's OT win over the Buccaneers, turning his 12 looks into 7 catches for 94 yards. Cooper could have had even more but dropped a long pass late in regulation. He made up for that with a 46-yard reception to set up the game-winning TD run in OT. For the game, Cooper accounted for 30.4% of Browns receptions and 44.8% of receiving yards. WR David Bell ranked 2nd among wideouts with 4 catches for 23 yards on 6 targets. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones contributed just 2 receptions for 16 yards among 4 targets. WR Anthony Schwartz added 1 catch but ran for a 31-yard TD on a 1st-quarter reverse. Browns receivers should have a new QB next time out, with Deshaun Watson eligible to return from suspension in Week 13.
