Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell should benefit the most from the zone-blocking scheme new offensive line coach Mike Munchak plans to install. Bell is a patient, yet decisive runner, which is a perfect combination for the scheme.
Fantasy Tip: Bell could be a low-end RB1 next season and may be drafted in the second round of drafts.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Matt Spaeth (knee), who missed the first 12 games with a knee injury, saw his first action of the season Sunday, Dec. 8. He threw a block on Miami Dolphins S Reshad Jones that sprung RB Le'Veon Bell for a nine-yard gain and a first down at the Miami 11.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as probable for Week 14.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Bell has recovered from his concussion and should be considered as a solid starting option for owners this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) is on track to return in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins from a scary concussion he suffered in Week 13. He has passed all of the league-mandated concussion tests this week and should play this weekend. Bell has practiced both days this week and is expecting a normal workload Sunday against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Tip: Great news for Bell owners here. The collision looked very scary, so it's nice to see that Bell is not expected to miss any game action. He's a comfortable No. 2 RB for fantasy purposes, but Pittsburgh's beat up offensive line may set him back.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) said he's been feeling better after being knocked out in Week 13, but he doesn't remember much of the incident. "I don't remember the exact play. I didn't remember it when it first happened," said Bell. "Once I came off the field I didn't really know I had scored. Then they told me I did; then they told me it wasn't a touchdown. I wasn't aware of what was going on at the time because I got hit. I can't really remember what happened."
Fantasy Tip: The only thing that matters is that Bell is feeling fine and is already running. He'll need to pass the concussion protocol, but if he plays against the Miami Dolphins, consider him a solid No. 2 back.
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 09:46:51 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) will try to play in the team's Week 14 game.
Fantasy Tip: Let's see what kind of work he is able to get in on the practice field this week, but the fact that there is this much optimism at this point is a good sign for Bell owners.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) did some running Monday, Dec. 2, and is hoping to play in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 13 contest. "I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play but if (I'm) not able to I'm not able to." Bell doesn't remember the hit but hasn't had many lingering effects from the violent collision. He took an ImPACT test Sunday, Dec. 1, and will have to pass more concussion tests before being cleared.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Bell will have over a full week to recover from his ugly concussion. It will all depend on whether he passes the concussion tests this week. The fact that he's already running is a good sign, though. Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer will split the duties in the backfield if Bell isn't cleared. If Bell plays, he should be in your lineups against the Miami Dolphins. Jones and Dwyer are desperation flex plays.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell earned the respect of his teammates in trying to score a touchdown in the team's Week 13 game. "He sold himself out to score and you have to respect that," Dwyer said.
