Steelers | Le'Veon Bell had pre-existing injury

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 05:55:55 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) had an injured groin before the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22. Bell said he had been managing the ailment, but he knew during warmups that he wasn't close to 100 percent. He left the game and returned for one play, but he knew his day was done afterwards. "I saw the seam and couldn't hit it," Bell said. "It was like I was running 50 percent out there. At that point, I knew I couldn't go. I was holding the team back."

Fantasy Tip: Bell will be one of the top options at the position in fantasy drafts next season. There is some concern about his durability, though. He's a fantastic combo back in PPR leagues, but he has had a knack for injuries the last few years.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell made historic mark

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:11:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's 157.0 yards from scrimmage per game in 2016 were third most ever for a running back in one season.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers were wise and fed Bell the ball throughout his 12 games. Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott each deserve to be the first running back taken in fantasy drafts, but Bell and Johnson have more value in PPR formats.

Steelers | Big night for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:11:48 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards, with no touchdowns, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Yardage leagues would have gained many points from Bell's performance, but don't let that discourage you from including Bell among RB1 or RB2 selections for next season. Assuming Bell keeps his nose clean and stays away from substances, he should be setting himself up well for a good payday and a strong 2017.
