Neither Bell or Harrison is worth owning until McCoy or Hillis get hurt
Not sure how you guys can say Hillis is established. He was brought into cle just a couple weeks b4 the season started and he has only started a handful of games in his career. Not what I would call an established guy by any means.
Coach Eric Mangini said that the Browns' motivation for acquiring Bell in exchange for fellow RB Jerome Harrison, is that he is a better fit for the team's downhill run schemes,
the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Spin: In terms of playing time, Mangini seems to view Bell initially as a complement to Peyton Hills, but the implication is that he was brought in because he can do many of the things the bruising Hillis does. With Hillis banged up this week, but likely to play, Bell may be worked in slowly, but he is an injury away from a big role in an offense that plays to his strengths. "I think as Peyton's role has expanded and the things he's done, the plays we have for him have expanded and Mike Bell's a guy we liked in free agency and really complements and is more a fit for the plays we have for Peyton," Mangini said.
