Joique Bell RB DET 9 Days
Joique Bell rushed 19 times for 94 yards and a touchdown in Detroit's Week 13 thrashing of the Packers, adding three catches for 34 yards.
Bell formed a powerful 1-2 with Reggie Bush on an afternoon where the Lions hammered out 241 yards on the ground. The 19 attempts were Bell's most since Week 3, where Bush sat with a knee injury. The Lions have worked to get Bell more involved as a pure-rushing changeup to Bush in three of their past four games, but he's still not getting the ball enough to be worth every-week FLEX consideration. Bell is an elite handcuff for the fantasy playoffs, but not someone you can trust as more than an RB4.

Joique Bell (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.
Bell felt something in his foot "kind of pop" while filling in for a benched Reggie Bush on Sunday. If he can't go Sunday, Theo Riddick will be the No. 2 back and Mikel Leshoure will likely be active. Consider Bell questionable as we await more details.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz told reporters Monday that Joique Bell (foot) has avoided a long-term injury.
Schwartz put Bell in the "day to day/week to week" category, which provides little clarity on his Week 12 status. Look for Reggie Bush to handle a full workload this week against the Bucs after Bell felt a "kind of pop" in the foot during Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. Bell remains a hold in all fantasy leagues.

Joique Bell rushed nine times for 49 yards and a touchdown in Detroit's Week 11 loss to the Steelers, adding three catches for 48 yards before departing with a fourth-quarter ankle injury.
Speaking afterward, coach Jim Schwartz said Bell was cleared to return, but the Lions opted to hold him out. Bell was thrust into a bigger role after Reggie Bush lost a fumble. Schwartz also told the FOX broadcasting crew the Lions preferred Bell in the second half because of the soupy conditions at Heinz Field. Bell was gaining yards in chunks before going down, but will remain an RB4 for Week 12 against the Bucs if he's active. Bush's starting job is in zero danger.

Joique Bell is not on the Week 8 injury report.
His rib injury is an issue of the past. Bell racked up eight touches in Week 7 against the Bengals, and maintains elite stash/handcuff value behind Reggie Bush, who is a locked-in RB1 but has never been one of the league's most durable players. Pick Bell up immediately if he was dropped in your league.
