Bell notched nine tackles (five solo), one forced fumble and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Jets. With the Bengals holding a 14-7 lead in the second quarter, the Jets threw a quick pass to Jamison Crowder, who scampered for a 26-yard first down, but Bell ripped the ball away from the wideout before his knee touched the ground. It was Bell's second forced fumble of the season and his first fumble recovery. The 26-year-old safety has a solid fantasy floor due to his high tackling numbers (52 stops through eight games), but if he can continue to force turnovers, then his IDP value will grow exponentially.
Bell registered seven tackles (five solo) and one pass deflection during Sunday's win over the Lions. Bell has 38 tackles through the first six weeks of the season and has had at least four tackles in every game. The 26-year-old safety could provide consistent scoring for deeper IDP leagues, but his upside is limited, as he hasn't forced a turnover or sack this year.
Vonn, who registered three tackles (one solo) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, finished up the 2020 season with 113 tackles (67 solo), five passes defended and three forced fumbles in 16 games. In his fifth season as a pro, Vonn recorded career highs in both tackles and forced fumbles, but he didn't record a sack this year. The safety played the most amount of Cincinnati's defensive snaps this year (1,059 snaps) and will continue to be a reliable asset as he is signed throughout the 2022 campaign with the Bengals. After spending four seasons with the Saints, the Ohio State product has reached triple digits in tackles and has more than proved he is a steady fantasy factor.
Bell finished with 10 tackles (seven solo), including one for loss, and also recovered a fumble recovery Sunday against the Giants. Bell not only recovered a fumble in Week 12, he also led the Bengals in tackles during the 19-17 loss. The Ohio State product has now tallied 10 or more tackles in back-to-back contests, bringing his season total to 84 stops (49 solo) through 11 contests.
Bell recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) and a pass defensed across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Washington. Bell continues to be the main cog in the Bengals defense this season, as he now leads the team with 74 tackles. The veteran safety has been both consistent and reliable, as he has played in 100 percent of Cincinnati's defensive snaps this year.
