Steelers | Le'Veon Bell finishes strong

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:56:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) rushed 13 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added nine grabs for 77 yards and a score on 10 targets. He left the game briefly to have his right knee checked out, but he was fine and able to finish strong.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was a beast for his fantasy owners, and it came at the perfect time in a playoff game for some. He'll look to keep it rolling into Week 15 in a key showdown against the New England Patriots.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell seeing incredible usage

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 11:59:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has been on the field for more than 91% of the Steelers' offensive plays this year. That's 11% more than the next highest running back.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is the jack of all trades, the Swiss army knife -- for the Steelers. He has been throughout his career. As long as he can handle that many snaps and that much contact, Pittsburgh won't stop using him that much. It could have more of an impact as Bell's career progresses, but for now he is a fantasy cornerstone.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell snaps scoring drought

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 22:19:23 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell found the end zone for the first time in four games, as he hauled in a receiving touchdown in the team's Week 13 victory Monday, Dec. 4, opposite the Cincinnati Bengals. Overall, he rushed for 76 yards on 18 carries and added 106 yards on five receptions.

Fantasy Tip: The score was notably Bell's first touchdown through the air of the campaign. While the fifth-year pro's touchdown drought was a little concerning, he's at least been racking up boatloads of yards the whole time, as this was his fourth straight game having topped 100 yards from scrimmage. Hopefully he can continue to cash in on his RB1 value when it matters most.

Steelers | Career high for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 20:56:38 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 20 times for 95 yards in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers and he added a career-high 12 receptions for 88 yards on 14 targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bell started out quite slow earlier this season and his fantasy owners were wary, but this is the guy you spent that early-round pick on. He is amazingly productive from a fantasy perspective when locked in.

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.
