Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unknown for OTAs

Wed, 11 May 2016 05:54:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) status for organized team activities in a few weeks is unknown, but he's expected to be limited if he's cleared. Training camp might be the best gauge used to determine his status as he's six months removed from right knee surgery. There's no timetable for a full return. As it stands, there's no definitive reason to believe Bell will miss Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's knee injury has been a bit of a mystery, but, as stated, he should be ready for the beginning of the season. It's not known if he'll be as effective or full strength until the season gets going. He's a high-end RB1 consideration with some caution flags after two severe knee injuries.

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:25:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will be limited during offseason workouts but appears to be on track for training camp and the start of the 2016 season. Bell will be a first-round pick in all drafts if he is healthy and will be in contention for the first overall pick.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell part of initial drug testing

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:50:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tweeted that he was part of the initial round of random drug tests Wednesday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: For what it's worth, Bell also tweeted "good luck with that sample." There has been some doubt whether he'll be ready for the season after his knee injury. When he's right, he's arguably the best running back in fantasy. Devoid of setbacks, he should be among the first few RBs taken.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell conservative with rehab

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 14:19:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is taking a conservative approach with his rehabilitation process. Bell hasn't done much more than jogging just four months after tearing his medial collateral ligament. Bell said the only thing he hasn't been cleared for is cutting and sprinting. There is still no timetable for Bell's return, but Bell's goal is to be 100% when he plays. "I feel like I am going to be a better player at the end of this and that's what I want," Bell said.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is arguably the No. 1 fantasy running back when he's fully healthy. His pass-catching ability makes him all the more valuable in PPR leagues. Assuming he makes a full recovery this offseason, Bell should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell questionable for opener?

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:25:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) had doubt cast on his status for Week 1 by general manager Kevin Colbert Wednesday, Feb. 24. "We can't even say he'll be ready for the regular season because we won't know that until he goes through the whole process," Colbert said. "His health and his ability to return at 100% is the most important."

Fantasy Tip: Bell should still be in the mix of the first five running backs if he isn't slated to miss much time.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not running yet

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 08:57:52 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he has not been cleared to run at this time. Bell suffered a torn medial collateral ligament during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his progress during the offseason to see if there will be any setbacks during Bell's recovery. Bell still has a few months to rest so he is not an injury concern at this point. He likely will be selected in the first round of league next season if he is healthy.

Steelers | No big offer for Le'Veon Bell?

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 19:22:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell won't receive a "break-bank offer" this offseason, according to beat writer Ed Bouchette.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's injury history is likely a cause for concern, but he is an elite fantasy running back when healthy. He is entering a contract year, and if he performs well in 2016, expect Pittsburgh and plenty of other teams to be lining up to pay him.

Steelers | President wants Le'Veon Bell to stay

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 13:40:32 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is entering a contract year, and team president Art Rooney said he would like Bell's football future to be in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: The ideal goal for the Steelers will be to sign Bell to a long-term deal, although they may not pay as much as Bell or his agent would like. We'll see what transpires over the next few months, but Bell is a top-tier fantasy running back when healthy.

Steelers | Le'Veon to be fine for next year

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 15:56:00 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is expected to be back in time for the regular season opener in 2016 after injuring the medial collateral and posterior collateral ligaments in his knee. The anterior cruciate ligament in Bell's right knee was uninjured, making it an easier recovery. A realistic timetable for a recovery is six to nine months. It's unknown when Bell will undergo surgery on his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's 2015 season was obviously a big disappointment, considering he went as high as No. 1 overall in a lot of fantasy leagues. He's deserving of the top overall spot again next year (mainly in PPR leagues), and he won't have a two-game suspension hanging over his head this time, either.
