Steelers | Le'Veon Bell tops 100 total yards

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 21:16:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 12 times for 46 yards and caught nine passes (on 11 targets) for 57 yards in Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Facing a Titans defense that came in ranked sixth against the run, the Steelers put the game on Big Ben with Roethlisberger throwing 45 passes to Bell's 12 carries. The result was Bell's second-lowest rushing total of the year -- he did have an apparent touchdown overturned on replay -- though he still topped 100 total yards for the fifth time in seven games. He's a strong RB1 week in and week out.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell has really high usage

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 08:19:41 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the eighth player since 1950 to have 250 or more touches in the first nine games of a season.

Fantasy Tip: You likely know the horror stories of running backs' usage rates and the long-term effects, but that's only a factor in dynasty formats. Bell only has five touchdowns this year, and that's what is keeping him from being the top back in fantasy. He has a tough matchup with the Tennessee Titans this week, but he's one of the best assets to have the rest of the way.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell posts 112 scrimmage yards

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 15:14:18 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 26 times for 80 yards in Week 10 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added five receptions for 32 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bell posted 25 or more carries for the fourth consecutive game, as the Steelers are one of the rare teams these days to mostly use just one tailback. Fantasy owners love that. He has a quick turnaround to get ready for the Titans on Thursday night in Week 11.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell tallies 27 touches

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:55:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 25 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for five yards in a 20-15 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bell didn't have his most efficient game running and didn't catch many passes, but it is a testament to his high floor when 81 yards from scrimmage and a score constitute a down game.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell totals 192 scrimmage yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:46:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 35 times for 134 yards in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added three grabs for 58 yards on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's stat line certainly entertained his owners, and he also entertained fans everywhere with his Hide and Seek touchdown celebration with JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second half. Bell is back as a top fantasy option at his position after a slow start. The Steelers meet the Lions on Sunday Night Football in Week 8.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown set NFL record

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:27:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the first pair of teammates since the 1970 merger with at least 700 scrimmage yards apiece in their team's first six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bell and Brown are obvious must-starts, but this stat reflects just how heavily the Steelers rely on them to carry the offense. Bell already has a league-high164 touches despite getting eased into action in Week 1, while Brown has nine more targets (74) and 196 more receiving yards than any other receiver.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell runs for 179 yards, TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:33:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 32 times for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added three grabs for 12 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: This is the Bell fantasy owners have been waiting for. After a slow start following his missing of training camp and the preseason, it took him a while to get on track. He had his biggest game against the best opponent the team has faced so far, and that's scary news for the rest of the league.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell could receive franchise tag again

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 09:42:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is likely to receive the franchise tag from the team next season, even though both sides will continue to work on a possible contract extension. Bell is reportedly seeking a multi-year deal worth $15 million annually but the Steelers are unlikely to offer him that much money, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has gotten off to a sluggish start this year after missing the entire preseason due to a contract dispute, with just one 100-yard rushing performance to date. That being said, the 25-year-old should still be viewed as a RB1 in all fantasy formats regardless of the opponent.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell totals 93 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:05:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 15 times for 47 yards in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added 10 receptions for 46 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The total yards from scrimmage is fine, but he failed to find the end zone for the third time in five games, and he has just one 100-yard rushing game to date. That's not exactly what fantasy owners expected from the first-round pick. He'll look for better results in Week 6, but faces a tough matchup in Kansas City.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell primed for big game?

Sat, 07 Oct 2017 19:02:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, and the Jaguars' run defense is ranked last in yards per attempt and yards per game and has allowed the third-most rushing touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finally looked like himself last week, piling up 186 total yards and two scores. A repeat performance could be on tap against Jacksonville's porous run defense, and Bell has a good chance to finish as the top fantasy back in Week 5.
