Steelers | Le'Veon Bell holds team record

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 16:33:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has 2,043 total yards this season, eclipsing the team record of 2,034 previously held by former RB Barry Foster.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finished with 20 carries for 47 yards and two touchdowns, while adding five receptions for 72 yards on seven targets. He continues to be a fantasy force, even when he doesn't have his best day yardage-wise. The idea of Bell being the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy for 2015 is quickly gaining traction.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been lighting it up for his weekly fantasy owners, and FantasyScore owners continue to get tremendous production despite at a solid price.

Steelers | PIT not worried about overworking Le'Veon

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 11:14:59 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the only player with at least 1,000 rushing yards and 600 receiving yards this year, but head coach Mike Tomlin isn't concerned about overworking the team's running back the way QB Ben Roethlisberger is. "I'm not overly concerned about that," Tomlin said. "He's a highly conditioned guy, he's a mentally tough guy. Personally I think he's built for it. He's excited about having an opportunity to do that for us."

Fantasy Tip: Bell's workload is unlikely to be scaled back, and he makes for a good option for your FantasyScore lineups at $7,600 this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals, who have been gashed often this season by opposing ground games.

Steelers | Big Ben worried about Le'Veon

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 09:26:18 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the "best all-around back in the game," according to QB Ben Roethlisberger, but the quarterback is concerned about Bell's workload down the stretch. Bell is the only rusher in the league with at least 1,000 rushing yards and 600 receiving yards this year, and he played all but two of the team's 90 offensive snaps in Week 13. "I don't know of a running back since I've been here that has basically been able to play every single snap, but you do have to be careful," Roethlisberger said. "I hope we don't run him into the ground if you will, but it's that stretch of the year where everyone's going to give it everything they have. He probably wants to be in there every single play because that's the type of player he is." Roethlisberger said making RB Dri Archer part of the offense on regular plays is key.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's fantasy owners love the fact that he is on the field for most of the offensive plays. Also, the fact that Bell is so heavily involved in the passing game is excellent, especially for leagues that award points for receptions like FantasyScore. We don't expect Bell's workload to decrease significantly anytime soon, and he makes for another good play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14 for $7,600. The Bengals give up an average of 21.82 fantasy points to running backs this season.

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 06:20:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will receive as many carries as he can handle, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be an excellent RB1 for the stretch run after their bye week in Week 12.

Steelers | LeGarrette Blount a problem

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 06:28:05 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount left the field before the game was over Monday, Nov. 17, apparently upset that he didn't have a carry in the game. At least one teammate thought the team should leave him in Nashville. Blount has been an internal problem for more than a month and sources said he is dragging down star RB Le'Veon Bell. Some players have been pushing for the team to release him due to his attitude.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell has big game Monday

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 19:02:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell had a career-high 204 yards and a touchdown on 33 carries in the team's Week 11 win over the Tennessee Titans Monday, Nov. 17, and he had all but three of the team's carries in the game. Bell had rushed for 205 yards and no touchdowns over the previous four games.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is a must-start in all fantasy leagues, and he should also be a weekly consideration at FantasyScore because of his ability to catch plenty of passes out of the backfield.

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.
