Fantasy Tip: Bell could take things slow during the offseason workouts but should be ready for the start of training camp. Bell is scheduled to miss the first three games of the regular season but could still be a first-round option since he produces in the running and passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Itís a good sign that Brown joined the team for OTAs, possibly indicating that he really is not worried about a new contract at this point. A holdout sounds far from likely, so he'll head into the 2015 season as a candidate for the No. 1 overall fantasy wide receiver, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers DE Cam Heyward is wanted long-term by the team, and the Steelers are likely to meet Heyward's request for a new deal. A long-term deal for Heyward would cost the Steelers more up front, but it could be a cost-effective measure in the long term. Heyward is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Fantasy Tip: Coates should see playing time when the Steelers want to spread things out on offense, but he likely will not be a consistent fantasy option for owners. Coates could be a late-round pick in drafts because of his potential.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said Thursday, May 14, that he didn't have a problem with his three-game suspension for being charged with possession of marijuana and driving under the influence. "I made a mistake," Bell said. "I'm going to just have to do my time, whatever the final decision may be. Get past it, and get ready for next season and continuing to be the great football player I know I can be."
Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams will likely start the first three games of the season in Bell's stead. Bell still has RB1 potential if he can play the way he did last season when he amassed over 2,100 total yards and 11 total touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Coates was overshadowed a bit by D'haquille Williams in the Tigers offense in 2014, but he is a dynamic receiver who could have a legitimate chance to win the No. 3 job in Pittsburgh. Watch him as a potential fantasy sleeper with a big training camp and preseason, especially if he solves his drop problem.
