Cowboys' Blake Bell: Small role in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (neck) caught 11 of 15 targets for 110 yards over 16 games for the Cowboys in 2020.

After Blake Jarwin (knee) was lost for the season in Week 1, Dalton Schultz moved into the No. 1 tight end spot for Dallas, but Bell remained purely a blocker for the most part. Even so, the 110 receiving yards was the veteran TE's best total since he was a rookie with the 49ers in 2015. A free agent once again, Bell could find himself playing for his sixth team in six years in 2021.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Picks up stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants due to a stinger, Todd Archer of reports.

If Bell is unable to return to Sunday's regular-season finale, Sean McKeon will step in as the No. 2 tight end behind Dalton Schultz. The 29-year-old wasn't targeted before leaving the field Sunday.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Clear of illness for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blake (illness) is listed as active heading into Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Bell couldn't practice Thursday while dealing with a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the tight end has proven capable of recuperating in time for Dallas' Week 16 kickoff. The 29-year-old remains without a missed game all season, but his passing-game involvement has been sparse. Bell has accumulated three catches for 23 yards over his past three outings, as Dalton Schultz stands firmly fixed atop the depth chart with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in the same span.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 29-year-old was added to the injury report Thursday with the non-COVID-19 illness, and his status for Sunday remains in question. Sean McKeon would serve as Dallas' secondary tight end behind Dalton Schultz if Bell is unable to play this weekend.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Missing practice with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Bell won't practice Thursday while he recovers from a non-COVID-19-related illness, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Though Bell will miss his second straight workout, McCarthy said he expects the tight end to be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Bell has served as the top backup to Dalton Schultz for much of the season, totaling 10 receptions for 103 yards on 14 targets over 14 games.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Reels in 10-yard pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's 41-33 win over the 49ers. He also rushed once for two yards.

Meanwhile, position mate Dalton Schultz was targeted twice, translating into two catches for 14 yards and a score. Bell has been targeted just six times over the past eight games; he won't be valuable for fantasy unless Schultz gets hurt.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Catches short pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught his lone target for a gain of two yards in Tuesday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.

Bell has been targeted just six times over the last eight games, translating into four receptions for 24 yards. He continues to garner consistent playing time in a blocking role, but he has no fantasy value as the No. 2 tight end in Andy Dalton's offense.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Good to go for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (back) practiced in full Wednesday and does not have an injury designation heading into Thursday's clash against Washington, per Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Bell began the week with a pair of limited practice sessions, but his full participation Wednesday will allow him to take the field on Thanksgiving. The tight end out of Oklahoma has corralled only seven passes this year behind starter Dalton Schultz, so he's not likely to make much of an impact in terms of fantasy production.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Remains limited Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (back) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's win over the Vikings, and he's been estimated as a limited participant on the first two practice reports of the week. Bell appears on track to play Thursday against Washington, though he may receive the questionable tag if he's unable to put in a full practice Wednesday.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Limited in practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (back) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Bell logged his lowest snap share of the season (21 percent) in Sunday's win over the Vikings, so it's possible that this injury was affecting him during the game. While it's encouraging that he avoided a DNP on Monday, Bell's practice status Tuesday should provide a better idea of his status for Thursday's game against Washington.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Notches fifth reception of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell hauled in his lone target for a 13-yard gain Sunday in the Cowboys' 37-34 win over the Giants.

Bell actually outproduced starting tight end Dalton Schultz (one catch for six yards on three targets), but don't expect that to result in a more even distribution of the work at the position in future weeks. Schultz had recorded 17 receptions for 208 yards across the previous three weeks, and he still played 58 of the 68 offensive snaps (88 percent) on Sunday. Bell, meanwhile, played just 18 snaps (27 percent).

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Returns to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) has re-entered Sunday's game against the Giants, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bell briefly left the field with a knee issue Sunday, but he managed to return without missing much time. He'll resume working as the top backup to Dalton Schultz.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell was forced out of Sunday's game against the Giants with a right knee injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bell departed in the first quarter after reeling in his lone target for a 13-yard gain. It didn't appear too serious at the time, but if he's unable to return, Sean McKeon is due for an increase in reps behind starter Dalton Schultz.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Two catches in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell caught two of three targets for 34 yards in Sunday's comeback win over the Falcons.

With Blake Jarwin (knee) done for the year, Dalton Schultz stepped up and posted a 9-88-1 line on 10 targets as the Cowboys' new No. 1 tight end, but Bell got a little more involved in the passing game as well. There could be more opportunities for both players Week 3 against a Seahawks defense that just gave up 397 passing yards to Cam Newton, but Bell's fantasy ceiling remains limited.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: More opportunities on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is in line for an increased workload with Blake Jarwin (knee) having suffered a season-ending ACL tear, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Bell wasn't targeted during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Rams, even after Jarwin was forced off the field, while Dalton Schultz received four looks in the passing game. As such, Bell's increased workload looks like it will primarily consist of blocking assignments. Undrafted rookie Sean McKeon could see increased reps as well.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Could see snaps at H-back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell could line up at H-back at times this season, Rob Phillips of reports.

With Jamize Olawale having opted out of the season, the Cowboys don't have an experienced fullback on the roster, but new head coach Mike McCarthy suggested he could use a blocking tight end in the backfield instead. "The fullback position and tight end position is something that I've always kind of lumped together when you're building your schematic menu [of the roster]," McCarthy said. "Because that's the adjustment you have to make in game weeks, so that's no different than our thinking right now as far as we're into training camp. The ability to play multiple positions, both at the fullback and tight end position, will give us what we need schematically." Bell does have backfield experience which could come in handy in that scenario -- he was an option quarterback in college before converting to tight end in the pros -- but he's still unlikely to get enough touches to have fantasy value, having caught no more than eight passes in any of the last four seasons.

Cowboys' Blake Bell: Heads to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell agreed to a deal with the Cowboys on Wednesday, Todd Archer of reports.

Bell has played for four different teams since he was taken in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, most recently serving as the No. 2 tight end for Kansas City in 2019. With 38 receptions in 65 career regular-season games, Bell shouldn't pose much of a threat to Blake Jarwin.

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.

November 27, 2019 10:44 PM
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.
