Steelers | Big role for Le'Veon Bell?

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 19:11:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not have his role reduced much this season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. When asked if he could see Bell getting 20 to 25 touches a game this season, Tomlin said, "I think we drafted him with that in mind."

Fantasy Tip: Bell is going to share time in the backfield with LeGarrette Blount this year, but it sounds like Tomlin still plans on giving Bell a bulk of the touches. Fantasy owners should feel comfortable drafting Bell as a RB2, especially in PPR formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to sit

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:27:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could ultimately face a suspension from the league, but that is unlikely to take place this season. Bell is a mid-to-low RB1 in most leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:14:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play in the team's final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Starters normally don't play in the final preseason game, perhaps indicating this could be part of the punishment the two face for being charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Bell and Blount are still awaiting a decision on possible suspensions.

Fantasy Tip: The decision on a suspension should come any day now, though it may only be for a game or two if there is indeed a suspension issued.

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:41:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face a suspension from the team, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Bell and Blount were recently charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on this situation. If the two are suspended, it probably won't be for very long. Bell remains an RB2 option with RB1 upside.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell travels for game

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:07:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell traveled on his own for the team's third preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Bell did not travel on the team charter after he was arrested for driving under the influence and marijuana possession Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will face a punishment at some point because of the arrest, but it may not occur this season. Owners should still consider Bell as a starting running back that likely will start coming off the board in the second round.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in hot water

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:39:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and RB LeGarrette Blount were charged by Ross Township Police Wednesday, Aug. 20, with marijuana possession. Bell was also charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after the traffic stop Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could be facing disciplinary action from the team and/or the league, and he could very well end up being suspended. Blount might have been in line for carries in Bell's place, but he is likely to be in hot water, too. This matter is certainly not over. If you have drafted your fantasy team already, hang tight, as Bell will certainly have plenty of appeal still. However, if you have not yet drafted, drop Bell down a few spots, as a suspension could change his value dramatically depending on the amount of games he potentially misses.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell drops weight

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 05:19:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell shed 10 pounds in the offseason to weigh around 230 pounds. He said he feels lighter and is able to move better.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is being pegged by many to be poised for a breakout season. He very well could accomplish that feat, but he's still unproven. Look for him as a mid-to-low RB1.
