David Bell

Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Bell has one of the best combinations of talent and team context possible, drawing a massive target share in the second-most pass-happy offense (64.5% pass) in FBS. His first two seasons have proven emphatically that he can produce even when defenses can key in on him, catching 139 of 209 targets for 1,660 yards and 15 TD in 18 games, so there’s no reason to worry about a dropoff with Rondale Moore gone. Bell doesn’t have elite YPT (8.0), but when he’s a legitimate threat to lead the nation in targets, catches, and touchdowns, the efficiency knock rings hollow. He’s WR1. Read Past Outlooks
Massive day in upset win
October 19, 2021
Bell reeled in 11 of his 12 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown Saturday versus Iowa.
ANALYSIS
Bell's receptions and yardage totals represent season-high marks for him and his touchdowns marked just the fourth of the year. He had gone a pair of appearances without finding pay dirt but remains the primary target in the passing attack and has topped 100 receiving yards in four of his five games played thus far.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Losing Rondale Moore was catastrophic for Purdue’s season last year, but it opened up the opportunity for Bell to become a bright spot. Bell, a true freshman, hauled in 86 of 131 targets for 1,035 yards and seven touchdowns. Some of his biggest games came against his toughest opponents, too. He racked up 197 yards and a score against Iowa and added 12 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown against Wisconsin. Moore being back in the fold this year may scare some off of Bell, but it’s important to remember that Purdue has ranked in the Top 10 in pass attempts per game each of the last two years, so there’s still enough volume to support star level production for both Moore and Bell.
