Cleveland Browns wide receiver David Bell caught all eight of his targets for 54 yards in a 45-14 playoff loss to the Houston Texans on Saturday. Bell wound up leading the Browns in catches while finishing fourth on the team in receiving yards in the loss on Saturday afternoon. The second-year receiver came on strong over the final month of the season, catching 16 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns across the past five games (including the playoff loss to Houston). With a strong offseason, Bell could open the 2024 campaign as the team's No. 3 receiver behind Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore. He's worth stashing in deeper dynasty leagues this offseason.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver David Bell caught all four of his targets for 68 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 18. With the Browns resting several key starters, including Amari Cooper, Bell operated as the team's main target in the regular-season finale. His touchdown catches both came in the fourth quarter, going for 31 and 24 yards. Bell will return to a reserve role in the Wild Card round of the playoffs against the Houston Texans next weekend, although his Week 18 performance offers a glimmer of hope for his dynasty value heading into the offseason.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver David Bell caught one of his three targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was Bell's first career touchdown, and the score was significant in sealing the victory on Sunday. While it was nice to see the second-year pro make a big play, he remains off the fantasy radar in traditional and deep leagues. He saw just 35 total targets last year and has seen just 14 this season. He's well behind Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore in the pecking order, and rookie third-rounder Cedric Tillman is also seeing more looks.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver David Bell (knee) has been ruled out for the Week 9 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Bell has not practiced all week while tending to a knee injury. Bell has seen minimal playtime in 2023 in a Cleveland offense finding greater success on the ground than through the air. Even with the departure of Donovan Peoples-Jones, a healthy Bell would have to fight his way past Amari Cooper, Elijah Moore, and tight end David Njoku (ankle) to have any fantasy relevance.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver David Bell (knee) has been ruled out ahead of the Week 9 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. This was expected after the second-year wideout missed practice all week. Hopefully, this isn't a long term injury, but Bell has been barely involved anyway. He's the No. 4 receiver on the roster and has four receptions on seven targets this season. His absence could open a door for Cedric Tillman to get involved in the offense. However, Tillman won't be worth looking at in fantasy formats with Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore getting a majority of the targets.
