RB - FA
This Week Outlook
Le’Veon Bell announced that he will not be playing football this season, saying, "I know I'm not going to be playing this year because I want to focus on boxing."
Bell is set to box Adrian Peterson later this month and he's obviously taking his new endeavor seriously. He was unlikely to have an impact on fantasy football this season, and now it’s official. The former All-Pro only averaged 2.6 YPC on 39 attempts in 2021.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Le’Veon Bell has been waived as the team will make room for the activation of Leonard Fournette.
Bell will now be a free agent going into the off-season and will likely not be picked up by any other playoff team. Bell has gotten older and it seems unlikely he will retain the fantasy relevance he used to carry.
Buccaneers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed three times for five yards and a two-point conversion and caught all three targets for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Jets.
Bell was just signed this week and saw an immediate role due to an ankle injury for Ronald Jones. He managed 35 yards and a two-point conversion. Bell will have a significant tole in Week 18 if Jones remains sidelined.
Running back Le’Veon Bell is active for Week 16. He’ll make his Buccaneers debut.
Bell signed with the Buccaneers this past week after Leonard Fournette joined fellow running back Giovani Bernard on injured reserve. While Ronald Jones will draw the start, Bell could compete with Ke'Shawn Vaughn for the backup role.
The Bucs officially signed Le'Veon Bell on Wednesday.
With Leonard Fournette likely to go on IR and Gio Bernard already banged up, the Bucs needed running back depth in the worst way. Bell is highly unlikely to make a fantasy impact for the remainder of the year, and had averaged just 2.7 yards per carry with the Ravens. Fantasy managers can ignore the signing entirely.
