Steelers | PIT planning to be without Le'Veon Bell

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 15:08:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could very well be suspended for at least the first two games of the 2015 season. General manager Kevin Colbert said the team is planning on being without Bell at some point. Bell was arrested in August of 2014 for marijuana charges and driving under the influence.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was the top fantasy running back in 2014 and any suspension would certainly hurt his fantasy value. However, two games isn't a lot of missed time and he should still be able to produce No. 1 fantasy running back numbers assuming he can stay healthy and avoids further trouble.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to be suspended

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:58:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana charges, according to sources. Bell will spend 15 months on probation as part of the first-offender's program and will have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. RBs Josh D. Harris and Ben Tate took over when Bell missed the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's ability to catch passes out of the backfield will likely make him a top-five pick in PPR leagues next year. The news of a possible two-game suspension will be a hit to his draft value, but he should still be considered an RB1 everywhere.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell facing suspension?

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 09:08:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will spend 15 months on probation in a first-offender's program after his arrest last August for marijuana. He will also have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. Bell can petition the court to have his arrest record expunged if he finishes the probation program without incident. Defense attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. said that Bell will likely face up to a two-game NFL suspension.

Fantasy Tip: If Bell indeed faces a two-game suspension for the start of the 2015 season, that would likely bump him down from a surefire top-five pick in your fantasy football drafts. Stay tuned.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell able to work out

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 09:56:38 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been able to work out despite ending the season with an injured knee. "The knee is close to 100%," Bell said. "I'm probably about 85-90%, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little."

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be ready in more than enough time for next season if he's already running on his banged up knee. In 2014, Bell showed that he's a top-five fantasy football pick, especially in point-per-reception formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will not play in Pro Bowl

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 15:14:13 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has not been cleared to play in the 2015 Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still dealing with the knee injury he suffered in Week 17, but he should be fine for next season. Bell likely will be a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts next season because of his involvement in the running and passing game.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will have normal offseason

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 10:25:03 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) injury isn't expected to affect his offseason work. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Bell could have played this weekend if the team had advanced.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't be worried about Bell at all heading into the 2015 season. For fantasy football purposes, Bell should be a top-five draft pick in all leagues, and he has added value in point-per-reception formats.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Josh D. Harris is expected to play often Saturday, Jan. 3, with RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) inactive for the wild-card playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Harris ($3,300; 6.6% of your cap) is a shaky start on FantasyScore against a stout Baltimore Ravens defense.

Steelers | Steelers 0-3 without Le'Veon Bell

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 10:29:37 -0800

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-3 and have averaged 14 points per game when RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has not been in the lineup in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Josh Harris will get the bulk of the work for the Steelers this weekend, but Dri Archer and Ben Tate could steal some carries as well. None of these running backs are strong options against a good Baltimore run defense this week in FantasyScore.
