Le'Veon Bell may not participate in Jets' offseason program

Running back Le'Veon Bell may not take part in the Jets' offseason program, but head coach Adam Gase told reporters "it’s not a huge deal."

Fantasy Impact

Gase has made it clear that he didn't think Bell was a great fit from the time the running back was signed, and the team would likely love to trade the veteran, but Bell's contract and lack of production will likely not allow for a move this offseason. As such, Bell basically can do what he wants. Given the situation, Bell should continue to be used heavily as the Jets really have nothing to lose, assuming he's able to provide at least average production. As such, he's entering the new season considered a low-end RB2 by our current expert consensus rankings.

Le'Veon Bell unlikely to be traded this offseason

The chances of a Le'Veon Bell trade are currently "remote" according to ESPN.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets are hoping to cut salary to rebuild their roster, but Bell's contract is prohibitive in either cutting him or likely trading him given the amount remaining on his contract. ESPN concludes that Bell will most likely remain with the Jets for at least one more season. Bell has already fallen off a cliff in terms of value over the last two seasons, but he did continue to see consistent volume in 2019. Given the fact that, if he remains with the team in 2020, the Jets have a lot of incentive to drive Bell as much as they can, he is currently still considered an RB2 (RB20 overall) by our early expert consensus rankings.

Le'Veon Bell tops off underwhelming season with middling output

Le'Veon Bell rushed 16 times for 41 yards and caught all five of his targets for 36 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Bell was a wildly underwhelming fantasy player for 2019 despite huge volume throughout the whole season. There are growing rumors of Bell playing elsewhere in 2020, which would likely be good for his fantasy value, as he's unlikely to be anything other than a workhorse, given his large contract. If Bell goes to a team in need of a running back, it would be hard to find a worse situation than the 2019 Jets in terms of supporting his fantasy value.

Le'Veon Bell nears 100 yards against former team

Le'Veon Bell rushed 25 times for 72 yards and caught all four of his targets for 21 yards in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Bell was afforded every opportunity in this game to get revenge on his old team, and didn't cash in with a score, but got a few catches and almost 100 yards, so the output was not bad. Bell is a volume-fueled starter with little upside on this Jets offense. He is in a tough spot next week against the Bills.

Le'Veon Bell has best rushing day as a Jet

Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 87 yards and caught both of his targets for 1 yard in the Jets' Thursday night loss to the Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Bell was really bottled up all night by a strong Ravens defense, and that should not come as much of a surprise. The bad news for Bell owners is that the two targets he saw are not going to be enough to give him RB1 upside if he doesn't find the end zone. Bell is in another tough spot next week against the Steelers, but he remains a volume play and should be in starting lineups. Maybe the #RevengeGame narrative will work out and he'll find the end zone.
