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.
The Ravens activated RB Le'Veon Bell from the practice squad. He's eligible to play vs. the Broncos tomorrow. We'll see if Baltimore has Bell, Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman active for that one. Williams remains the best fantasy bet -- but Bell's presence makes his profile a bit shakier.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo believes there's a "shot" RB Le'Veon Bell makes his Ravens debut against the Broncos tomorrow. Baltimore has been using Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman the past 2 weeks. It's unclear where exactly Bell would fit in the pecking order. He's certainly not a Week 4 fantasy option but is a decent stash in deeper fantasy leagues.
The Ravens won't be activating RB Le'Veon Bell or Devonta Freeman from the practice squad ahead of tonight's game against the Raiders. They instead elevated CB Anthony Levine Sr. and DL Justin Ellis to help cover injuries at those positions. That leaves Ty'Son Williams as the expected lead back vs. Vegas, with Latavius Murray and Trenton Cannon behind him.
The Ravens are signing RB Le'Veon Bell to the practice squad, according to multiple reports. Bell visited the team on the same day as Elijah Holyfield and Devonta Freeman. The fact that he's not immediately joining the roster tells you Bell won't jump ahead of Gus Edwards or Ty'Son Williams anytime soon. We'll see if this goes anywhere. For now, Bell is only worth a stash in deep fantasy football leagues. Bell managed just 8.4 touches per game over 9 regular-season contests with the Chiefs last year -- cracking 7 carries in a game just twice.
Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) got in a full practice on Friday and isn't on the final injury report for the Super Bowl. He figures to be 3rd in the backfield pecking order behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams.
