Nick Bellore: Scores once in 2019

Bellore recorded two receptions for 23 yards over 14 games in the 2019 season.

Analysis: Bellore played just 29 offensive snaps compared to 266 on special teams, which is typical since he converted to fullback from linebacker. He'll turn 31 years old in May, and he's under contract for the 2020 season.

Nick Bellore: Finds paydirt in win

Bellore caught a three-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: The converted linebacker was only targeted once before this contest, but he made his presence known with the Seahawks' only touchdown Sunday. Bellore mainly contributes on special teams and should continue that role in the season finale against the 49ers.

Nick Bellore: Returns for full practice

Bellore practiced fully Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bellore missed Seattle's previous two games but appears ready to return after logging a full practice Thursday. The 30-year-old fullback is primarily used as a blocker out of the backfield and offers very little from a fantasy standpoint.

Nick Bellore: Sitting out SNF

Bellore (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: The Seahawks will play without a fullback in this contest, so they may draw a tight end into the backfield to serve as the lead blocker in specific situations. This is the second straight game Bellore will miss.

Nick Bellore: Doubtful for Sunday

Bellore (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bellore was estimated to have been a non-participant in Wednesday's and Thursday's respective practices, which were walk-throughs. It looks like the 30-year-old is ticketed for a second-straight absence.

December 6, 2019 2:00 PM EST

Nick Bellore: Out as expected

Bellore (quadriceps) is officially inactive for Monday's clash with the Vikings.

Analysis: Bellore came into the game with a doubtful tag, so his absence from the lineup isn't quite surprising. The Central Michigan product has only touched the ball once this year, so his absence likely won't affect the fantasy realm.

Nick Bellore: Doubtful for Week 13

Bellore (quadriceps) is officially doubtful for Monday's game against Minnesota, Seahawks digital media reporter John Boyle reports.

Analysis: Bellore hasn't played more than five snaps in a game this season and has touched the ball only once, so his expected absence will go unnoticed in the fantasy realm. The fullback originally picked up the injury against the Eagles in Week 12.

Nick Bellore: Unable to practice

Bellore (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Bellore suffered a quadriceps injury during this past Sunday's win over the Eagles, and a DNP for the first official practice of the week is an unfavorable sign. The team won't practice Thursday, so we'll have to wait until Friday for another update on his status for Monday's clash against the Vikings. If Bellore's unable to go, the Seahawks could be without a fullback since they don't have a replacement on the practice squad.

Nick Bellore: Suffers injury Sunday

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bellore is dealing with a quadriceps strain, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The injury was suffered in Sunday's win over the Eagles, and Carroll re-iterated that the strain isn't as bad as the team initially thought. Bellore's status is uncertain at best for Monday night's game against Minnesota, so expect his practice availability later in the week to shed light on his recovery. He's currently the only healthy fullback on the roster for the Seahawks.

Nick Bellore: Re-ups with Seattle

Bellore signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.

Analysis: After releasing Bellore on Saturday, Seattle re-signed the 30-year-old to be the only fullback on the roster heading into Sunday's season opener against Cincinnati. Bell notes that the plan seemingly all along was to release Bellore, use his spot on the roster to move other pieces around and then re-sign the veteran shortly thereafter. Since entering the league in 2011, Bellore has appeared in 121 games for three teams -- the Jets, 49ers and Lions -- and has operated primarily on special teams.

Nick Bellore: Signing with Seattle

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

December 21, 2018 12:37 PM EST

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.

December 20, 2018 1:23 PM EST

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).

December 16, 2018 9:20 AM EST

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.

December 9, 2018 2:53 PM EST

Nick Bellore: Will play Sunday

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

December 9, 2018 12:18 PM EST

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.

December 7, 2018 1:50 PM EST

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.

December 5, 2018 1:41 PM EST

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.
