Joique Bell out until training camp?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Lions running back Joique Bell did not participate in the team's recent OTA and doesn't think he'll be ready for the team's mandatory minicamp in June. But he does think he'll be able to make training camp in late July. 

"My timetable is this, man: I'm working as hard as I can to get back as soon as I can," Bell told "As soon as I feel I'm at a position where I can go out there and not hurt myself, that's when I'll be back out there."

Knee issues have bothered Bell this offseason, though he's not saying if he had surgery (he did post a picture of himself with crutches and a wrap on his left knee earlier this month). Assuming Bell is okay he's expected to have a larger role in the Lions offense after posting nearly 1,200 total yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Joique Bell not sweating knee injury
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Lions running back Joique Bell wouldn't get into the specifics of the left knee injury that kept him out of a minicamp practice on Wednesday but wasn't concerned he'd be out for a while. Bell said he suffered the injury last season. 

"Just (a) nagging injury," Bell said according to ESPN. "Something just nagging, nothing that will prevent me (from playing). I had it all last season, so you guys didn't even really notice. But it's something we just trying to get rid of before next season. So it's just being smart. I could practice right now if they really wanted me to, but it's up to them when they want to put me back in."

Bell totaled nearly 1,200 total yards and eight touchdowns last season. His role is expected to expand this season.

The Lions offense is going to be awesome
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

So it appeared for weeks the Lions wanted to move up to select receiver Sammy Watkins from Clemson. Maybe they didn't offer enough to jump up to No. 4 like the Bills, who drafted Watkins. Or maybe they were hoping if they stayed put at No. 10 that an elite player would land in their lap.

That's what happened on Thursday night when they drafted tight end Eric Ebron from North Carolina.

Think about this offense now. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and now Ebron. The only downside about this pick is Joseph Fauria loses all sleeper appeal, but we can live with that. He'll still score a few touchdowns, but Ebron could be a star.

You can't double cover him because of Johnson and Tate, and new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi comes from New Orleans, where Jimmy Graham was a dominant force. The Lions wanted an upgrade at tight end, and Ebron is the answer.

He should be considered a potential starter in all Fantasy leagues with a late-round pick, and he's a late first-round selection in rookie-only drafts. The Lions are going to be fun to watch in 2014.
