News: 4 days agoBell logged five carries for 22 yards and reeled in both of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.
Spin: Despite Bell seeing more usage (30 percent of offensive snaps) Sunday than he did last week, he actually wound up with one fewer touch and didn't reach paydirt. The veteran back continues to serve as the No. 2 option behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire but remains primarily a handcuff at this point.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Despite a healthy dose of turmoil during the 2019 season, Bell is back as the Jets' feature back. Bell's first season in New York saw him rank no lower than 11th among backs in carries, targets, receptions and receiving yards. However, Bell ended up just 16th among backs in fantasy points, due to a low touchdown total (four) and horrific efficiency (3.2 YPC, 5.9 YPT). Bell's heavy volume allowed him a high floor (double-digit points all but one week), but he no longer has an elite ceiling (one weekly finish better than ninth). Bell is now 28 years old and hasn't appeared in 16 regular-season games since 2014. He's no longer an RB1, though an improved Jets offensive line helps his 2020 prospects.
