Steelers | Le'Veon Bell sets team record

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:00:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell became the first running back in team history to start the year with seven straight games of 100 yards of total offense. Bell ran 12 times for 57 yards and caught eight passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 win over the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is an RB1 each and every week, especially in point-per-reception leagues, where he has excelled. The Steelers seem determined to continue to use him more in the passing game, too, which is excellent news for his owners.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell looking for plea deal

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:11:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be accepted into a probation program in his case for marijuana possession and driving under the influence charges, according to his attorney. Bell likely would serve one year of probation and could have his arrest record expunged.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bell will face any punishment from the NFL for his arrest, but Bell will continue to play for now. Bell has been a consistent producer for owners this season and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $7,400.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell waives hearing

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 06:04:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, Oct. 15, on marijuana possession and driving under the influence chargers. That means he and his attorney acknowledge police have enough evidence for the charges to go to Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, where Bell must either plead to all or some of the charges or stand trial.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has no chance at facing a suspension this season, as has been reported since the Aug. 20 arrest. Bell ($7,400; 14.8% of your cap) continues to be a solid weekly choice at RB1 on FantasyScore.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to see more carries?

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:08:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell wasn't the focus of the offensive in the Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. QB Ben Roethlisberger threw nine passes, was sacked twice and didn't hand the ball off once in the red zone in the game. Bell ran for 82 yards on 15 carries in the game, and he has 460 yards this year. "I feel like a lot of runners in the NFL: the more they get the ball, the more they get into a rhythm," Bell said. "The better (rhythm) I get, the game kind of slows down for you. You get into kind of a zone, as people will say." Bell is poised to see more carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. The Browns are 29th in rush defense and are allowing 152.5 rushing yards per game. Bell hinted the team won't be so one-dimensional in the red zone against the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expensive at FantasyScore ($7,700; 15.4% of cap), but he may be worth it against the Browns without Phil Taylor.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell sets team record

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:56:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has recorded 688 yards from scrimmage in his first five games, which sets a franchise record. Bell is also the first player in team history to record 100 yards from scrimmage in his first five games of a season. Bell rushed for 82 yards and caught five passes for 36 yards in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been a consistent option for owners this season because of his ability to produce in the running and passing game. Bell should be considered a weekly starting option in all leagues.

Steelers | Slimmer Le'Veon Bell running well

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 20:19:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell lost 20 pounds in the offseason, and he credits better conditioning for allowing him to make explosive plays like his 81-yard run in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Bell torched the vaunted Carolina defense for 147 yards on 21 carries in Week 3, and his 461 yards from scrimmage are the most in the NFL. He is the workhorse of a revitalized Pittsburgh rushing attack, and with the Steelers facing a Tampa Bay team that may be the worst in the NFL in Week 4, Bell could be a nice piece to build a lineup around at FantasyScore.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell piles up yards

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 21:30:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tallied 107 total yards in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, rushing 11 times for 59 yards and catching five passes for 48 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh fell behind and had to abandon the run, but Bell's versatility as a pass-catcher still allowed him to salvage a decent game. More importantly, the first two weeks of the season suggest that LeGarrette Blount is not going to a major factor in the backfield. Bell could have a tough time against a stout Carolina defense in Week 3, but he is worth considering as a starting running back in FantasyScore whenever he has a decent matchup.
