Chiefs' Blake Bell: Contributes down the stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell finished 2019 with just eight catches for 67 yards on 15 targets.

Bell was brought in to fill the role voided by Demetrius Harris' departure this offseason and essentially did just that. The backup tight end in the Chiefs' offense is unlikely to see a ton of usage in the passing game as long as Travis Kelce is healthy, which was precisely what occurred in Bell's case -- the four-year pro recorded 400 offensive snaps despite little usage as a pass-catcher. He signed just a one-year contract with Kansas City, so there's no guarantee he will be back in the fold in 2020.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Snares pair of passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell notched two catches for 15 yards on a season-high three targets Sunday versus the Bears.

Bell had not recorded more than one catch in a game prior to Week 15 but has now caught a pair of passes in each of the last two weeks. Still, he played less than 50 percent of the offensive snaps and has yet to reel in a touchdown pass in 2019, so there's very little fantasy upside to be had at the moment.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Sheds injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Bell wasn't able to suit up against the Chargers in Week 11, but he appears back to full health following Kansas City's bye. In any case, Bell doesn't carry much (if any) fantasy value as long as top tight end Travis Kelce remains healthy.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Sidelined Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Bell sustained the injury last week against the Titans and actually returned to the game, but he was unable to practice this week. Deon Yelder should serve as Kansas City's No. 2 tight end in his place.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Ankle injury lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell will not practice Thursday due to an ankle injury, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Bell was briefly sidelined during Sunday's loss to the Titans due to an ankle injury, but he managed to retake the field without missing more than a couple of drives. It now appears that the issue could jeopardize his availability for Monday's tilt against the Chargers, though the fifth-year pro will have two more chances to practice before a decision on his availability is made. Bell plays a reserve role behind Travis Kelce in Kansas City's offense, and he also contributes on special teams.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (ankle) returned to Sunday's game against the Titans after leaving in the first quarter, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Bell was initially ruled questionable to return, and he only missed a couple of drives before getting back in. The fifth-year pro will return to a blocking role on the Chiefs' offensive front.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Exits with ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans with an ankle injury.

Bell left the game in the first quarter after playing just a handful of snaps. He isn't worth keeping an eye on for fantasy purposes since he only has three receptions for 10 yards this year. Deon Yelder should see an uptick in usage behind Travis Kelce.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Quiet in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell didn't catch his only target during Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Bell still received a healthy dose of 25 snaps in the game and is the clear backup to Travis Kelce at the tight end position. While it doesn't mean much now, he could gain fantasy relevance should Kelce miss time.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Reels in lone target in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's season opener against the Jaguars.

Bell logged 33 offensive snaps (49 percent) in the contest, positioning him as the second-string tight end behind Travis Kelce and ahead of Deon Yelder. While it means very little in terms of fantasy at the moment, it could prove fruitful should Kelce miss any time.

Chiefs' Blake Bell: Replaces Harris in KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is signing with the Chiefs, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

With Demetrius Harris headed to Cleveland, the Chiefs don't have much experience at tight end behind starter Travis Kelce (ankle). Bell mostly played quarterback at Oklahoma and only has 30 catches in 50 NFL games, but he seems to have found a situation that will allow him to compete for the No. 2 job at tight end -- a role that provided Harris with 371 snaps and 25 targets in 2018. Deon Yelder and David Wells represent the competition, with more help potentially coming from the 2019 NFL Draft.

Jaguars' Blake Bell: Ends season with 14 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Bell played only 14 offensive snaps, totaling eight catches for 67 yards in 10 games with the Jaguars. The 27-year-old saw a minimal offensive role after signing with the team in October, but he was involved on special teams. Bell is not under contract for 2019 and will return to the open market.

Jaguars' Blake Bell: Returns to box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught both his targets for 16 yards in Thursday's 30-9 loss to the Titans.

Bell had only one catch for five yards in the previous three games, so Thursday's performance was a marked improvement. The 27-year-old is essentially splitting time as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end with Ben Koyack behind starter James O'Shaughnessy, and isn't worth fantasy consideration in said role.

Jaguars' Blake Bell: Catches two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught two of three targets for 27 yards in Sunday's loss at Indianapolis.

Bell worked as the Jaguars' secondary tight end and played 27 offensive snaps behind starter James O'Shaughnessy, but that role is now likely to change. Ben Koyack -- who the Jaguars signed Monday -- is currently listed as the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart, which should further limit Bell's offensive workload.

Jaguars' Blake Bell: Notches first reception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles in London.

Bell out-snapped fill-in starter David Grinnage 32-to-28, but the latter was much more involved in the passing game. The reception is Bell's first since Week 14 of last season when he was with the Vikings. Starter James O'Shaugnessy (hip) will have the Week 9 bye to continue his recovery, and his health will determine Grinnage and Bell's involvement when the Jaguars face the Colts in Week 10.

Jaguars' Blake Bell: Lands in Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell signed with the Jaguars on Tuesday.

Bell spent the 2017 season and this offseason with the Vikings before being let go prior to Week 1. The former Oklahoma quarterback was fighting for a depth spot on Minnesota's roster, and he is expected to serve a similar role in Jacksonville. His signing comes as a result of yet another Jaguars tight end hitting injured reserve, with Niles Paul suffering a sprained MCL on Sunday. James O'Shaughnessy is in line to start at tight for the team moving forward.

Vikings' Blake Bell: Waived by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bell struggled to leapfrog Tyler Conklin and David Morgan for a reserve tight end spot in Minnesota. Bell's best chance to make the roster came via special teams, but at the end of the day there's only 53 spots available for the regular season. If he clears waivers, Bell could be asked to the practice squad.

Vikings' Blake Bell: Sits out walkthrough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (leg) didn't participate in Thursday's walkthrough, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bell was spotted with a wrap on his right leg. The fourth-year pro's spot on Minnesota's roster is in jeopardy after the Vikings selected TE Tyler Conklin in the fifth round of April's draft. Bell posted just three receptions for 19 yards in 2017, so he'll have an uphill battle.

Vikings' Blake Bell: Cleared for team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (shoulder) was cleared to participate in team drills during spring workouts, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Bell has split first-team reps with David Morgan while Kyle Rudolph (ankle) has worked his way back into action. However, Bell may end up fighting for a roster spot, as fifth-round rookie Tyler Conklin and undrafted rookies Josiah Price and Tyler Hoppes will also be competing for depth roles at tight end.

Vikings' Blake Bell: Should be able to participate in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (shoulder) is expected to be a limited participant in spring drills starting April 16, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bell is rehabbing from shoulder surgery he underwent in December. In his third season, Bell made just three catches for 19 yards and zero touchdowns behind Kyle Rudolph (ankle) on the depth chart. As long as Rudolph is on the Vikings' roster, Bell will likely remain a situational, run-blocking tight end.

Vikings' Blake Bell: Surgery deemed successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell underwent successful surgery Tuesday to address an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bell is expected to be in a sling for several weeks before he's cleared to begin rehabbing, but the expectation is that he'll be fully healthy for the start of Organized Team Activities in the spring. The tight end, who was placed on injured reserve last week, finished his first season with the Vikings with three receptions for 19 yards across 13 contests.
