Le"Veon Bells 1st carry.........

Recommended Posts

Le"Veon Bells 1st carry since 2017 will be against the Bills. We is not "participating" in the Preseason. Is this good for the Bills, will he be rusty or football shape for the 1st game? The last game he played where he held out was against the Cleveland Browns in 2017. He had 10 carries for 32 yards and 6 receptions for 15 yards. This could bode well for the Bills. The Steelers barely won 21-18 against the Browns who went 0-16.

A lot less important for a rb.  He actually should be really refreshed after a year off. I worry more about him in the passing game anyways.

I am not sure how good in the passing game he will be since he doesn't have a lot of reps in the passing game. One wrong route and Edmunds will take it back for 6.

Typically defenses are ahead of the curve compared to offenses come week 1.  I have more confidence in the Bills D as a unit than I fear any 1 player.  Unless his name rhymes with Flom Shady.

I hope Oliver hits in him the backfield and then Clowney wraps him from the side... Edmunds picks up the fumble and takes it to the house

And Bobby Boucher shows up at halftime just in time to win the Bourbon bowl!

Bell is not getting any live passing drills one wrong route and Bills get a pick 6.

His first carry will be the fat check he takes to the bank.

Is this true?  WTH would they not have him practice some live passing drills, hard to imagine.  Second of all they shouldn't be publicizing this if he isn't.

I meant in preseason, drills only take you so far.

The 1st 8 RBs we will face in order: We need to worry about our run D.

1. Bell

2. Barkley

3. Mixon

4. Henry

5. Drake/Bellage

6. All six Philly RBs - LOL

7.Peterson/Guice

8. Chubb

I hope his first carry ends with Oliver's first bone-crunching, regular season tackle. :thumbsup:

Yep this is a good point.  Still I think a year off at his age, incredibly fresh legs, he might be awfully difficult to contain.  We need to lay some serious hits one him quickly let him remember the pain.

I am very worried about our run D, every competent OC is going to study the tape from the second Pats game where we couldn't stop them.  I hate giving credit to belichek but he laid out a great game plan against us.

I don't necessarily buy this. What is your rationale? I think a RB who has had a year off shouldn't be any more or less prepared than one who's had an entire off-season off. Is Bell's year sabbatical that much more beneficial than Gore/Shady's decreased preseason/camp work load? 

 

I don't know

When people talk about great veteran players not needing preseason reps to perform in the regular season, they aren't usually talking about veterans who have sat out an entire season and switched teams so that they are working with an entirely new set of personnel and an entirely new scheme.   I thik that will weigh on his performance more than the fact that he's "fresh."

I don’t know but should I take him in fantasy? I hate having to root for guys on teams in the division but his average draft position is right around where i will be picking

I'm sure he's getting reps - just not playing in games taking contact.

He's not going to play in the pre-season?  Another player I'm glad they didn't get.

I don't care about any skill position player that doesn't have the supporting cast. For example, I am not frightened of any WR that has a terrible QB. Same as I am not frightened of any RB that has a terrible OL. Bell is not going to have a good season.

You don’t think Bell’s body is in better shape now than opposed  to if he took 400 nfl quality hits in a season?

Crowell averaged 5.5 ypc and they improved their oline.  I don’t think he will be Bell on the Steelers but he is still a good Rb.

^^ this here; have the Jets committed to not playing him all preseason?  link?

 

i'm also with Biscuit on this, his body is healed and well rested, rust for a running back may be vision but he's gonna perform.

 

Now, that one full contact hit he takes vs the 'glancing' blows he's been used to may have some effect.
