Joique Bell, RB2 or still just a flex?


Bryce Brown shite all over me last week and Ahmad Bradshaw may not play. I have Joique Bell but I'm not too sure about him yet

re: Joique Bell, RB2 or still just a flex?


I've gotta decide between Ridley and Bell for my 3RB this week.

Ridley produces consistently even though the 49ers D is solid vs the run.

Bell is playing the god awful Cardinals defense and had like 110 total yards last week.

Very tough decision but I'll probably go Ridley because he is consistent.

But I do like Bell this week vs that shite defense.

re: Joique Bell, RB2 or still just a flex?


I was able to pick up David Wilson and Montell Owens on waivers last night. I was actually attempting to pick up bell instead of owens, but kinda goofed up. I may just keep it the way I have it though. Wilson is almost a must start on my team, especially if Bradshaw is out. And owens isn't sharing the backfield like bell.

Plenty of people were telling me to go after bell instead of owens, they easily could be right. He has been consistent these last three weeks and may be getting a larger work load.

Wouldn't put Joique at the RB2 just yet. I still think Leshoure gets the goal line touches and majority of the carries. Even as a Leshoure owner, I'm going to keep him on the bench for the rest of the year. The backfield is too unpredictable, and Stafford passes like 45 times every game.

I'd go Bryce Brown over Bell easily. Brown getting shut down by the best rushing defense in the NFL on the road isn't the same as playing Cincy at home.

Bell played 12 more snaps than Leshoure last week.

He's starting to work in. Solid RB2 in ppr leages

I was actually responding to the OP

But now that you mention it, I'd start Bell over Ridley in a ppr this week

I'd consider, but no way could I pull the trigger on that.

Makes sense in theory

49ers shut down run games. Patriots have no problem putting the run game on ice if they have to. They can score through the air with ease.

Detroit, in theory, will wax Arizona. Run game will see a lot of action, especially Bell. Throw in his ability to catch passes. Remember Kevin Smith late last season?

My thoughts too Gyno. Although my only other options at RB2 are Alex Green, Ben Tate, or Bilal Powell due to injuries...

I'll just ask in this thread instead of starting another.

Should I start Bryce Brown or Reggie Wayne in the flex? Brown has the potential for a big game but Wayne has been a consistent 10-12pt player

In theory, I always start my studs, as long as they're not Larry Fitzgerald.

I start my studs too. Ridley isn't a stud. If he doesn't score a TD he won't break double digit points

Same. I have no interest in ever owning a RB who does not catch passes from now on. I definitely realized the importance of that this year.

Post stalking me form the M/TV board eh? Cute. I'd make the same call if they had the same matchups and McCoy was out next week. Bell has averaged about 7 points a game on the year, not much more than the 4.5 Brown got me last night.

I follow the touches in fantasy as well as matchups, and Bell will likely have about half the touches Brown got last night. If Bell was the starter he would be a potential stud, but he's still just splitting time with Leshoure at the moment.
