Nick Bellore: Signing with Seattle

Bellore signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Brady Henderson of reports.

Analysis: Bellore visited last month but is now putting pen to paper, presumably after not finding a better offer on the open market. It's not clear if Seattle envisions him as an offensive weapon or more of a special-teams guy, but Bellore nonetheless steps in as the only true fullback on the roster, which could prove useful in landing a roster spot ahead of Week 1.

Nick Bellore: Snags pass in season finale

Bellore secured his only target for eight yards during Sunday's victory over the Packers.

Analysis: The Lions moved Bellore to fullback last spring once presumed starter Nick Bawden (knee) tore his ACL, and the results were mostly positive for how much playing time (7.4 offensive snaps per game) Bellore actually saw. However, the longtime linebacker never came close to popping on the fantasy radar and will now finish the 2018 campaign with zero yards on his lone rushing attempt and seven yards on his three receptions. Bellore will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Nick Bellore: Clear of ankle injury

Bellore (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: Bellore began the week as a limited practice participant but practiced fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old has one rushing attempt on the season and should serve his usual role as a blocker versus Minnesota.

Nick Bellore: Limited Thursday

Bellore (ankle) was limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Bellore missed two of the last three games due to his ankle injury, exiting early in the one game he tried to play through the injury. His limited practice suggests he has a chance to return to action in Sunday's tilt against the Vikings. He hasn't seen more than 17 offensive snaps all season and carries almost no fantasy value, even if he does see the field Sunday.

Nick Bellore: Won't play Sunday

Bellore (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Bellore left last week's contest against the Cardinals prematurely after suffering a setback to his ankle injury, which will ultimately keep him sidelined Sunday. The Lions' backfield will be without both their fullback and rookie Kerryon Johnson (knee).

Nick Bellore: Headed to locker room

Bellore (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Analysis: Bellore came into Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but was deemed healthy enough to suit up. It's unclear whether Bellore aggravated a previous injury, or sustained a new one. In any scenario, the Lions don't have a healthy full back on the roster with Bellore out.

Nick Bellore: Will play Sunday

Bellore (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Analysis: Bellore was questionable after being a limited practice participant but is good to go for Sunday's game. The 29-year-old should serve his usual role as a blocker out of the backfield for the Lions.

Nick Bellore: Questionable Week 14

Bellore (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona.

Analysis: Bellore returned to practice as a limited participant this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Rams. The 29-year-old would resume his duties as a blocking fullback should he be able to suit up Sunday.

Nick Bellore: Limited to begin week

Bellore (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Bellore did not practice in any capacity last week, so Wednesday's limited participation is a step in the right direction. If the 29-year-old fullback is able to suit up against the Cardinals on Sunday, he could see a slight uptick in snaps with Kerryon Johnson (knee) still nursing an injury.

Nick Bellore: Won't play Sunday

Bellore (ankle) is officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Bellore did not practice in any capacity this week, so his lack of availability Week 13 is no surprise. The 29-year-old's absence could allow Zach Zenner to see a slight uptick in snaps during Sunday's tilt against the Rams.

Nick Bellore: No practice to begin week

Bellore (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Bellore appears to have sustained an ankle injury during Thursday's loss to the Bears, and his status for Sunday's tilt against the Rams is uncertain at best. Given that he's only seen one carry this season, Bellore's tentative lack of availability is unlikely to have a significant impact on Detroit's offense.

Nick Bellore: Logs first carry of season

Bellore rushed once for zero yards during Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: This marked the first carry of the 2018 season for Bellore, who's seen the vast majority of his playing time this year come on special teams. Given how little Detroit uses its fullbacks, don't expect his workload in to expand anytime soon.
