Steelers | Le'Veon Bell totals 98 yards, score

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:06:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 15 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears and he added six receptions for 37 yards on seven receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Bell didn't have a monster day, but it was easily his most productive of the season from a fantasy perspective. He'll look to keep things trending in the right direction heading into Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell ready for big game?

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 20:47:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is ready to return to form in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, according to C Maurkice Pouncey and OG David DeCastro. "We have to do a better job of locking on guys and making sure he can get one-on-one and most of the time he beats that guy," Pouncey said.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bell continues to struggle with efficiency against the Bears, the promise of a huge workload as Pittsburgh's lead back should ensure a decent stat line. Continue to treat him as a RB1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell sees more work in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:02:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 87 yards on 27 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bell received a lot more carries this week but was not able to rush for more than 11 yards on any play. He is working his way back after missing the entire preseason and should be a No. 1 running back against the Chicago Bears next week.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not sure of role

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 21:24:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell did not line up as a receiver in four-receiver sets in Week 1, and Bell said he is unsure if he will continue to come off the field in those packages going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Bell sat out training camp, so there is a chance the coaching staff was trying to limit his snaps and ease him back into the mix. It will be something to watch going forward, but it shouldn't stop fantasy owners from deploying Bell as a RB1 against the Vikings in Week 2.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell held in check

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:10:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. He also caught three passes for 15 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell skipped the entire preseason because of his contract situation and it showed in Week 1. He should post better numbers moving forward and will be a No. 1 fantasy running back most weeks.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to be heavily involved in Week 1

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 09:53:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell should see "close to a full workload" in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: This is only notable because Bell reported to the team on Sept. 1. Regardless of whether or not Bell is heavily involved this weekend, he's a poor bet to play all 16 games with his usual workloads given the fact he was not with the team all summer - even as good of shape as he keeps himself in. James Conner appears to be his handcuff and needs to be held onto throughout the season.

Steelers | Mike Tomlin 'comfortable' with James Conner

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 10:15:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie RB James Conner has shown enough that head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters he would be comfortable with him should Le'Veon Bell does not or cannot take all the snaps at running back.

Fantasy Tip: Given Bell's injury history and the fact he reported to the team so late, this is actually a fairly big deal. As long as we can take Tomlin at his word (and history says we can), Conner will be one of the more valuable handcuffs in fantasy. Do not hesitate to pick him up in your league if he is somehow available or wait too long to select him as a high-upside option late in drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in shape

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 09:04:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is in "great physical condition," according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been one of better-conditioned athletes since he made his physical transformation following his rookie season, so this isn't a surprise. The question is whether or not he can reach "football shape" anytime soon. Players who miss a significant portion of training camp and/or the preseason seem to be more prone to soft-tissue injuries than those who do, so Bell's owners would be wise to stock up on other options to protect themselves. Whenever Bell suits up, he is an elite RB1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell ready for workload

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 11:25:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he's prepared for a full workload in Week 1 despite being winded in practice Monday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has a tremendous matchup on Sunday versus the Cleveland Browns. He has owned the Browns in his career, averaging more than 100 rushing yards per game. He's a candidate for the top running back play this week.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell signs tender

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 07:32:24 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell signed his franchise tender Monday, Sept. 4. The team will have to make a roster move to activate him for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is an elite RB1, and he's worth consideration in the first half of the first round of PPR drafts.
