Bengals' Vonn Bell: Gets three-year deal from Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell agreed to terms Wednesday on a three-year contract with the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bell spent the first four years of his pro career in New Orleans, recording at least 80 tackles in each of those seasons. After getting a multi-year deal from Cincinnati, Bell now stands to serve as a pillar in the Bengals' revamped secondary, as the team has already added cornerbacks Trae Waynes, Mackensie Alexander and LeShaun Sims in free agency. Bell could realistically see an uptick in IDP fantasy value in his new role as Cincinnati's top strong safety, considering that incumbent Shawn Williams is coming off back-to-back seasons with at least 110 total tackles.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Strong play in fourth season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell finished the 2019 regular season with 89 tackles (66 solo), two forced fumbles, 1.5 sacks, one interception and a touchdown.

He also recovered five fumbles. The Ohio State product ends the final year of his rookie deal with steady numbers, as he's compiled between 83 and 89 tackles in all four years of his NFL career. Bell started all 13 of his appearances in 2019 while securing his first interception and first touchdown on a scoop-and-score against Seattle in Week 3. The safety is just one of a long list of Saints who will be free agents in 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Triplett of reports.

Saints' Vonn Bell: No-go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is officially listed as out for Week 17's game against the Panthers, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Bell failed to suit up in either of the final two practices this week heading into Sunday, so this news isn't surprising. With the Ohio State product sidelined, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is likely to receive the start at the strong safety position.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Sits out of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday.

Bell got a limited session in Wednesday, so perhaps this was just a rest and maintenance day for the veteran. A return Friday would bode well for his gameday status, but the Saints may elect to hold the Ohio State product out until the playoffs.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Can't go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans, Mike Triplett of reports.

Bell has missed the entire week of practice and will miss a second straight game. Chauncey Gardner-Thompson (concussion) put in a full practice Friday and will be the likely replacement if he clears the concussion protocol in time.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) did not participate at Wednesday's practice.

The 30-year-old was unable to play during Monday's win over the Colts and is still nursing the knee injury. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson filled in at strong safety for the Saints in Bell's absence, but he is now in the concussion protocol.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Sitting out MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) won't suit up for Monday's game against the Colts, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Bell is coming off his best performance of the season, when he notched 13 tackles (nine solo) and a sack against the 49ers. It appears rookie sixth-round pick Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will start in Bell's place, but Saquan Hampton figures to see an uptick in snaps as well.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Does not practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) did not practice Thursday, Mike Triplett of reports.

There were no reports Bell had suffered an injury in Week 14 against San Francisco, so it's possible this is just a rest day. The Saints still have two more practices before Monday night's game against the Colts, so the 25-year-old still has time to recover.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell accounted for 13 tackles (nine solo), one sack and a tackle for a loss in the Saints' 48-46 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Bell contributed one of the Saints' three sacks on the afternoon and paced New Orleans in tackles. As the score of Sunday's shootout suggests, defense didn't play much of a factor in deciding the outcome of the game. Bell has now totaled 89 tackles (66 solo) on the season, providing him a solid fantasy floor, He'll look to keep rolling in Week 15 against the Colts.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and a pass defensed across 76 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Vonn Bell does it all in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell recorded three tackles (two solo), 0.5 sacks and an interception in the Saints' 34-17 blowout victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Bell had a full stat line in Sunday's win as he picked off Jameis Winston and split a sack with Cam Jordan. His tackles were a bit lower than what he's used to this season, but the turnover and half-sack certainly make up for it. New Orleans gets a quality matchup against Kyle Allen and the Panthers in Week 12.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Leads team in tackles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell recorded eight tackles (seven solo) and recovered a fumble in the Saints' 36-25 win over the Bears on Sunday.

For the second week in a row, Bell paced New Orleans in tackles. He also recovered a fumble, and the fourth-year man remains a pivotal piece of this defense. Fire him up in IDP formats as a reliable source of tackles with built-in turnover upside.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (back) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Bell worked as a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday but was able to finish the week with a full practice to avoid the questionable tag.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Bell appears to have picked up a back injury during Sunday's 12-10 win over the Cowboys. The starting safety's reliability as a tackler is key to New Orleans' success on defense, so Bell's participation in practice as the week continues will be worth tracking.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Plays critical role on defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell recorded 10 tackles (seven solo), two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in the Saints' 12-10 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

In a defensive battle with the undefeated Cowboys, New Orleans won the turnover battle (and the game) thanks to a strong showing from Bell. Bell paced the team in tackles and was involved in three Dallas fumbles. The Ohio State product has put together a solid string of performances through four games, and he should continue to be a reliable option at safety.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Scores crucial touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell accounted for nine tackles (five solo), a fumble recovery, and a defensive touchdown in the Saints' 33-27 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Bell's highlight play came when he scooped up a Chris Carson fumble and took it 33 yards to the house for a defensive touchdown. The Seahawks believed the play was dead, but Bell played through the whistle and hit the end zone for six. The touchdown proved crucial in a tightly contested game, and it was surely a relief for a defensive unit that had a fumble recovery touchdown called back in Week 2 against the Rams.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Leads Saints in tackles Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell finished with seven tackles (five solo) and one tackle for a loss in the Saints' 30-28 win over the Texans on Monday.

Bell led the Saints in tackles Monday, and he should be in for another season of high-volume tackling. The fourth-year man from Ohio State finished second on the team last season with 88 tackles (62 solo).

Saints' Vonn Bell: Quietly solid in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell had four tackles (two solo) in Sunday's divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles.

Despite not starting much of the year, Bell finished the regular season with 88 tackles (62 solo) -- the second most on the team. After taking over as the starting strong safety, Bell put together some strong performances down the stretch, including a 10-tackle game in a Week 16 matchup against the Steelers. Though his ancillary stats were lagging -- Bell had just one sack and two turnovers -- the third-year pro should play a key role in the playoffs and into next season.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell totaled 10 tackles during Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh.

Bell flashed huge IDP upside last season when he recorded double-digit tackles three times as a key cog in the Saints secondary. This was his first such occasion in a slightly underwhelming 2018 campaign in which Bell is averaging 5.1 tackles per game -- which is roughly a full stop less per contest than he churned out as a second-year player. However, the Ohio State product seems primed for another explosive performance in Week 17, when the Saints take on a Panthers team that could be down to its third-string quarterback if Taylor Heinicke (elbow) is unavailable.
