Le'Veon Bell 2019 Outlook

Bell appears to be just fine, and is still an elite RB with sky high potential.  With Darnold back, making Crowder and Anderson relevant again, I foresee some big weeks ahead.  When he gets more involved in the passing game again, look out. 

Proud owner in my keeper league, and am going to to attempt to make moves to get him elsewhere.

Obviously not a tremendous play against the Patriots, but some silver lining in that unlike week 3, they'll have Darnold back and they have to at least think about the pass as opposed to Falk.  That said, in order to have any kind of shot they have to run the football.

Gore found a little bit of room against them.  Divisional games can sometimes get interesting.

Anybody think him only getting one catch was due to the inept Dallas pass D opening up the field for the receivers?

 

It seemed as if Dallas basically thought they were playing Luke Falk and basically just focused on Bell which let Darnold pick apart the rest of the defense.

I'm going to assume the pats will focus more attention on Darnold which will free up Bell.

What is a reasonable expectation for Bell vs Patriots?

Over/Under on:

1) 100 yards

2) TD

70 yards and no TD

I still think Pats focus on stopping Bell. However they’re smart enough to make adjustments if Darnold is playing well (unlike Dallas)

Pats defense has the same strategy every game, every year, for as long as I can remember.  To take away the #1 weapon of their opponent, and force you to beat them with something else.  That weapon is Bell, hands down.
Pats Passing Defense is so good, they don't have to focus any attention on Darnold.

I can't imagine more than a handful of draft scenarios where you aren't starting Bell regardless of matchup.
He'll be in my lineup this week (every week) and I'm just praying for dump offs for a PPR game or a lucky fall into the end zone.

Not getting my hopes up, not pretending he won't be bottled up for 90% of this game, and definitely not panicking or letting sheep pretend a bad outing vs the Pats means anything for his ROS outlook.

Lock the thread until next week, there's nothing to discuss.  Play him, take what he gets, and don't let the results alter your opinion of Bell moving forward.

Belli has had his issue containing bell honestly. Even when Landry Jones started a game once bell still had his way. I’m not expecting much, but the passing game is really what we all need here. A nice 6 for 50 to save our bacon.

This Pats D seems different this year.

I think it had something to do with AB taking some of the attention. Bell will be contained by the PSTD bc he is the best player. Belichick likes to take away the teams best players and let someone else beat them

I know it, the hoodie makes you fight left handed. I think bell can avoid a bust game in PPR however.

Jets upset of the season...stun Pat's in MetLife

I think if the Jets want a chance of handing the Pats their first loss this season, they need to attack the deep ball. Give Robby the deep routes, look for Crowder down low, and Bell to the outside. I think the only way to beat this Pats secondary is to spread them out.

Bell is still a good RB, but without a good O Line, he really isn't going to be what he was in Pitt. The Pats are going to focus on stopping him this game, so I don't see a breakout coming here either. 

He will improve through the season and the volume is there. He should be a lock for top 10 production and 80 catches will put him in the top 5

He's on my bench for now..I can't start him after what I just saw from Jets future QB!?!?!? ,And yes Pats D is ridiculous this yr, but C'mon, Luke did a better job @Pats few weeks ago

 

You're benching him now? His next stretch is so easy, and Bell has looked good despite his offense struggling. Are you crazy?
