New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is participating in workouts with his teammates this weekend.
Huddle Up: Bell will be the starting running back for the Jets this season but will have to share some of his snaps with Frank Gore. He should still be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues but likely will not produce the numbers he did earlier in his career.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell has no guaranteed money in his deal after this season. If he stays, he is due to make an $8 million salary and receive a $3 million roster bonus that the team is likely not willing to shell out unless he has a monster season.
Huddle Up: Bell had a disastrous year last season, but he put together enough volume in PPR leagues to remain serviceable. His work is likely to be tapered back in 2020 in hopes of a resurgence. He'll be a great RB2 in PPR leagues as he's still just 28.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he is looking forward to playing behind the team's offensive line this upcoming season after they added several new linemen during the offseason, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.
Huddle Up: Bell had a disappointing 2019 season compared to his play in the past and finished with 789 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also recorded 461 receiving yards and one touchdown. He should have a better understanding of the offense this upcoming season and has a good chance of improving his stats. He can be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive a lighter workload this season as the team looks to include more backs into the scheme. 'I do think we have some guys that can help maybe lessen the load on (Bell) to where it's not all on him,' head coach Adam Gase said. 'Hopefully, we can get some of the younger backs to where we can make a good one-two punch to where we can really excel instead of feeling like it's just all on him all the time.'
Huddle Up: Bell rushed for 3.2 yards per carry on 245 rushes for 789 yards and three scores. He caught 66 balls for 461 yards and another touchdown. Bell has a lot of mileage on him at 28, but he's still a high-end PPR RB2 target that could creep back as an RB1.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell will remain a part of the team in 2020, according to general manager Joe Douglas Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'There hasn't been talk as far as him going anywhere,' Douglas said. 'We're excited about Le'Veon. Le'Veon has been a great teammate. I can't tell you how great he's been. ... We're excited to have him.'
Huddle Up: Bell rushed for just 789 yards and three touchdowns in his first season with the Jets while adding another 461 yards and a touchdown as a receiver. He has dropped into the RB2 tier for 2020 and will need to reprove himself within the Jets offense.
