Steelers | Sammie Coates to miss start of camp

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 20:18:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (knee) underwent a knee scope last week and will miss the start of training camp, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Coates should be ready for the Steelers' dress rehearsal in the third week of the preseason, but the time he'll miss figures to eliminate whatever chance he had to contribute early in the season behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Coates can be ignored in fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell a workhorse in 2016

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 09:27:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season, but once he returned, he received 85.6 percent of the team's carries and 21.6 percent of the team's targets over the final 13 games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Needless to say, that kind of workload is highly unusual for a running back in today's game and does not figure to be repeated anytime soon. Assuming Ben Roethlisberger, Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown all stay healthy for the bulk of this season, expect the aforementioned percentages to dip into the 70- and 15-percent ranges, respectively. That still plenty of work to keep Bell in the conversation among the top three picks of any fantasy draft.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play in Week 1

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 18:15:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't committed to reporting to training camp on time, but he plans to play in every regular season game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could skip some of camp as he lobbies for a lucrative long-term extension, but with no plans to take a holdout into the regular season, he remains a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in all formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell looking to be paid like RB, WR

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 17:48:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he is looking for a deal that will pay him like a No. 1 running back plus a No. 2 wide receiver, according to NFL Network analyst Ike Taylor.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finished fifth in the NFL with his 1,268 rushing yards in 2016, and his 75 receptions ranked second on the team. He will remain with the Steelers for at least one more season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues as long as he joins the team before Week 1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell had big offer

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 11:54:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was given an offer that would have averaged $12 million per year. He would have earned $30 million over the first two years and $42 million over three years, according to sources. The franchise tag he will play under in 2017 is worth $12.1 million.

Fantasy Tip: Bell apparently wants more over the next several years of his career. He deserves it as arguably the best running back in the NFL. He does have a history of suspensions, but he remains a No. 1 overall pick candidate.

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 11:19:17 -0700

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may sit out camp

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:13:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell may not sign his franchise tag tender until the Steelers break training camp, in the opinion of an unnamed teammate.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was not able to agree to a long-term extension, so he may not report to the team until close to the start of the regular season. Bell will continue to be a main part of the Steelers offense and is a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | No extension for Le'Veon Bell

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:32:16 -0700

Pitssburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will play the 2017 season under the franchise tag if/when he signs it. He is not obligated to show up for training camp since he has not signed the tag.

Fantasy Tip: Bell will show up eventually. Missing training camp and time with the team is expensive. This does not affect his draft stock, at least not for this year. He should be one of the first players off draft boards.

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 08:17:25 -0700

Steelers | Nothing close between PIT, Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 13:07:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is not close to an agreement on a long-term contract with the Steelers at this point. The Steelers have until Monday, July 17, to sign Bell to a multi-year deal.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Bell could consider sitting out training camp if he does not have a contract. He is one of the top running backs in the NFL and should be a first-round pick in all leagues as long as he is with the team for Week 1.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant wants to talk to QB

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 18:31:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to talk with QB Ben Roethlisberger "man-to-man" about the public comments Roethlisberger made about Bryant's suspension. "Hopefully we'll have it before the season starts," Bryant said. "If not, that's fine. I'm still going to go out and perform and do what I have to do to be the best teammate I can be."

Fantasy Tip: Fair or foul, the comments Roethlisberger made shouldn't have much impact on Bryant's fantasy value. If he can stay out of trouble, Bryant's big-play potential makes him a high-upside WR3.

Steelers | Pittsburgh to ramp up Le'Veon Bell talks

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:37:35 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is due to make $12.1 million in 2017 if he plays the season under the franchise tag, but the team hopes to "press" negotiations over the weekend as the sides head toward the deadline to sign franchise players to long-term deals Monday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is due to make roughly $4 million more than any other running back in the league if he plays under the tag this season, which obviously isn't helping things progress any quicker. Still, the 25-year-old is as good of a back as there is in the league and a great fit in the Steelers' offense, so look for both sides to make an honest attempt to get a deal done. Bell is a strong top-three pick in virtually all fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Deadline deal for Le'Veon Bell?

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 18:48:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's extension talks could go down to the July 17 deadline, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and Fittipaldo believes both sides have enough incentive to work out a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of whether or not an extension is worked out, Bell enters the season as the workhorse of Pittsburgh's backfield. He should be a top-three pick in standard formats and a top-two pick in PPR leagues.
