The Lions took RB Joique Bell off of the PUP list Monday and he is expected to begin practicing on Tuesday. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: After his knee and achilles injuries, Bell is finally activated and able to start practicing. This week should be a telling sign of his physical shape and status for Week 1. All signs point towards him reclaiming the starting RB position, but some great performances from Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick have made a running back by committee situation a realistic chance. If you have yet to draft your team, be on the lookout for more news on Bell coming later this week.

Fantasy Impact: While Bell has been productive for the Lions and fantasy owners, there are a lot of question marks surrounding him this season. The team is clearly high on rookie Ameer Abdullah, and the division of carries is unknown entering the season.

Offseason ACL/knee surgeries leave conditioning/training camp status in doubt.

Reggie Bush is gone and Bell showed last year he can do more than he's been asked. I think he reached his cap as the 14th best fantasy back, though.

Joique Bell is returning from both knee and Achilles injuries, while rookie Ameer Adbullah has looked great in OTAs. Bell still is the back for goal line carries, but this could be a clear timeshare or whoever has the hot hand week by week (think Hill/Bernard in Cincinnati). Current ADPs have Bell at 60 and Abdullah at 65.

It seriously hurts to put Joique Bell so low in the rankings but he is coming off of a serious injury and the new rookie Ameer Abdullah looks sharp. He should get back on the field and post 400 yards and 4 TDs for the year.

It appears we will have a committee in Detroit this season with Joique Bell leading the way on early downs and short yardage and Ameer Abdullah working on passing downs. The more skilled player would appear to be Abdullah and he could start to win over playing time from Bell as the season goes on, but Bell has always been an effective goal line back and unless he gets hurt I doubt he loses that. I'll lean Bell in Non-PPR and Abdullah in PPR.

I should probably make it known that I’m not the biggest Joique Bell fan. Maybe it’s because he killed the fantasy football stock of Reggie…
