Steelers | Le'Veon Bell likely to be tagged

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:00:33 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag again this offseason. That tag is worth $14.5 million. He and the Steelers would still be able to accomplish a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Bell looks to be the highest-paid running back in the NFL if/when that long-term contract is reached. The bottom line is that Pittsburgh isn't going to let Bell hit the free-agent market. Suffice it to say Bell is arguably the player to select with the No. 1 overall pick in redraft leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers have been in talks about a potential long-term contract and general manager Kevin Colbert is optimistic that a deal will come to fruition. Colbert said Pittsburgh wants to keep Bell for the rest of his career if possible, but using the franchise tag on Bell again has not been ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: Who knows how long negotiations will take or if Bell will hold out if he is tagged? Both sides want a long-term deal, but that's easier said than done. Assuming he is retained by the Steelers, Bell is arguably the No. 1 fantasy player in all formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell says team has timeframe on deal

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 14:09:43 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said the Steelers have set an artificial deadline for the two sides to reach a long-term agreement. The Steelers would like an agreement before Feb. 20, which is the first day that teams can place the franchise tag on a player. Bell said the two sides could continue to negotiate after that date if nothing is agreed to in the next few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that the Steelers and Bell have made progress in contract talks and would have a little less than a month to agree to terms. Bell likely will be with the Steelers for at least one more season and will be a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts in 2018.

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 10:12:33 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell has already been given a contract extension offer. Bell said both parties are a lot closer than last year's extension efforts.

Raiders | Oakland to target Le'Veon Bell?

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 20:45:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell could be a target for the Oakland Raiders, according to The MMQB's Peter King.

Fantasy Tip: While Bell has threatened to sit out or even retire if the Steelers placed the franchise tag on him again, it seems highly unlikely Pittsburgh will simply let him walk. With that said, any negotiation the Steelers have with Bell is going to be tricky given his off-field issues. Furthermore, any other team interested in him needs to figure out how long and how much it wants to invest into a back coming off a season with 400-plus touches. Regardless of where he lands, he will remain an elite fantasy RB1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell was late for walkthrough

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 06:51:31 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell showed up five minutes before the walkthrough ended Saturday, Jan. 13, before the Steelers were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He and a coach were also late to report to the stadium before the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is supremely talented, but there is luggage to tote with that designer bag. He could see the franchise tag as a free agent, but he'll be an elite RB1 wherever he plays.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell wants to remain in Pittsburgh

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 23:32:08 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he "of course" would want to remain in Pittsburgh next season and that he would "never want to leave this city," but "circumstances and things like that" would be the reason if he doesn't continue his tenure with the Steelers in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has already gone on record of saying that he would consider sitting out next year or possibly even retiring if the club decides to place the franchise tag on him, but it seems more likely than not that the two sides will get a deal done. As long as he's back next year, Bell should continue to be one of the first guys taken off the board in all fantasy drafts.
