Bell earned 23 carries in snowy conditions during Week 14 in place of the injured Reggie Bush. Should Bush continue to miss time, Bell would be in line for a heavy workload this Monday night against Baltimore.
Bell struggled with fumbles last Sunday, but was otherwise useful, adding four receptions and 58 yards. Bush's calf injury appears to be one he can re-injure at a moment's notice, so even if he plays, Bell could see an uptick in touches. If you're forced to start a Lions running back in Week 15, Bell appears to be the safer choice this early in the week.
