Largely out of rotation in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Bell reeled in five of his nine targets for 26 yards and a touchdown during the 2023 regular season.

Bell provided a serviceable backup veteran tight end for the Chiefs in 2023, but he sat clearly behind Travis Kelce and Noah Gray in the pecking order. Belldozer's contract expires following the season, so it wouldn't be shocking if the 31-year-old looks into the open market for another spot in 2024 after three seasons with the Chiefs. Bell has tallied no more than 11 receptions in a season since his rookie year, so he's not a fantasy asset to consider next season, regardless of the uniform he dons.

Draws first target since Week 8

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-20

Bell played 10 of 65 snaps on offense and failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Patriots.

Bell has suited up in each of the Chiefs' first 14 games of the season, but since hauling in a short touchdown reception in Week 1 when Travis Kelce was sidelined with a knee injury, the 32-year-old tight end has barely made a ripple in the box score. Altogether, Bell has put together a 3-19-1 receiving line on six targets this season while typically seeing only a handful of snaps behind Kelce and Noah Gray in any given week.

Snaps drop down in Kelce's return

Bell went without a target across 14 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Jaguars.

Bell logged 25 snaps on offense and cashed with two catches for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' season-opening loss to the Lions, but as expected, his opportunities took a hit Week 2 with top tight end Travis Kelce (knee) returning to the lineup. The 32-year-old remains the clear third option on the depth chart behind Kelce and Noah Gray.

Scores in Kelce's absence Thursday

Bell brought in two of three targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' 21-20 loss to the Lions on Thursday night.

Bell and Noah Gray filled in for the sidelined Travis Kelce (knee) on Thursday, and the former did his share by recording a four-yard touchdown grab late in the first half to snap a 7-7 tie. The veteran's score marked only his second career trip to the end zone across 101 regular-season games, and if Kelce is healthy enough to suit up for a Week 2 visit to the Jaguars a week from Sunday, Bell should be back to his very minor pass-catching role.

Re-signs with Chiefs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-24

Bell and the Chiefs agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bell will return to Kansas City for a fourth straight season with the team in 2023. As a backup option behind Travis Kelce at tight end, Bell appeared in three games in 2022, reeling in two catches for 20 yards and a score. With the departures of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman at wide receiver this offseason, it's possible that Bell could be asked to step into a larger role next season.

Small involvement late in 2022

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-17

Bell caught his only target for three yards during the Week 18 victory versus the Raiders.

Bell spent most of the 2022 campaign on injured reserve due to a hip flexor injury that required surgery. He didn't rejoin the action until Week 16 and played minimal offensive snaps over the final three weeks. Despite that, the veteran backup tight end compiled a pair of catches for 20 yards and his first career touchdown. Bell is late enough in his career that he's clearly not going to turn into a significant receiving threat, so he can be left on waiver wires everywhere heading into 2023. Bell is also a free agent heading into next season, so he'll aim to find a home somewhere as a backup again.
