The Bears have waived backup running back Kahlil Bell. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chicago Bears have waived running back Kahlil Bell after reportedly refusing to take a pay cut. Bell was possibly in line to be the third string back behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush, but Armando Allen has also shown some positive signs in the preseason. Bell was in his fourth season after being an undrafted free agent in 2009 out of UCLA. After the injury to Forte last season, Bell had 240 yards rushing in the final three games.

Fantasy Implications: If you had any inclination to draft Bell after his positive performance at the end of 2011, you shouldn't anymore. He will likely land on another team because of his experience and the fact that he ably carried the ball at the end of last season, but he's going to be in an uphill battle for a job after spending all of camp and preseason with Chicago.
