Bell’s efficiency should improve behind a better offensive line, though the arrival of Frank Gore certainly threatens Bell’s volume as a potential bellcow back. Gore has seen between 10.3 and 11.1 carries per game in the last two seasons in Miami and Buffalo. Last year, Bell saw 245 carries in 15 games and the No. 2 back, Bilal Powell, only averaged 4.5 carries per game. If Gore sees more work than that, it will infringe on Bell’s usage that led to a so-so No. 17 finish last year. The rushing pie needs to increase for Bell to return RB2 value in 2020.
