Jets running back Le'Veon Bell has struggled with head coach Adam Gase

Dynasty Analysis

To anyone following Adam Gase's coaching career, specifically in his time with Miami, this shouldn't come as a huge surprise. The coach seemingly struggles consistently with player personalities. Now with the Jets, the pattern seems to be familiar and the relationship between Bell and Gase continues to be on rocky ground following a situation where Bell was removed from the field due to "hamstring tightness" only to have Bell take to Twitter to say "ain’t nothin wrong with my hamstrings." Supposedly the air was cleared shortly thereafter though few believe that will be a lasting result. Gase has continually heaped praise upon veteran Frank Gore and, most recently rookie La'Mical Perine while others say Bell is having a non-descript camp. It has also recently been suggested it could be a 60/40 split between Bell and Gore to start the season which would further erode the relationship. If not for a nearly impossible-to-move contract the team gave Bell in 2019, it would be fair to suggest he could be traded by mid-season and while still not out of the question, it certainly isn't likely. The team does have a more palatable out in 2021 but would still carry a $4M dead cap hit. For Bell, DLF's RB24, he's a risk-on risk-reward upside back for competitive teams, capable of producing RB1 performances but with a low-floor each week. It's anyone's guess what 2020 will yield for the veteran and a trade-on-production is suggested for dynasty coaches looking to move on from the player.
