Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not limited

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:32:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) appeared to be a full participant during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is coming off a knee injury and likely will miss the first four games of the season but appears to be healthy. Bell's fantasy value will take a hit because of the suspension but he should still be considered a No. 1 running back in most leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell cleared for camp

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:54:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been cleared to participate in training camp. Bell is less than nine months removed from tearing his posterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament. "I'm going to do as much as coach Tomlin lets me do," Bell said. "I'm confident where I am right now. I felt if we had a game tomorrow, I'd be able to play."

Fantasy Tip: It's good that Bell is feeling healthy and ready for the season, but off-field issues have obviously interfered. He is facing a four-game suspension, but should still be considered as a low-end RB1 in the late-first or early-second round.

Steelers | Date set for Le'Veon Bell's appeal

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:34:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's appeal for his four-game suspension is tentatively set for mid-August, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: A successful appeal seems unlikely for Bell, but we won't officially know until mid-August. It's best to plan to go without him for the first four games of the season. DeAngelo Williams is one of the better running back handcuffs to draft this year as he is capable of providing four quality starts in addition to the playing time he'll have behind Bell. Bell should still be taken as a low-end RB1 in PPR leagues, while Williams is more of a mid-round option.

Steelers | Ladarius Green placed on PUP list

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:06:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Green is recovering from offseason surgery, so it is not known when he will be able to practice again. He should be an important part of the passing game this season and probably will be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end if he is healthy.

Steelers | Jesse James, Bud Dupree drop weight

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 12:10:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James and LB Bud Dupree have each lost around 20 pounds this offseason. Dupree weighed 275 pounds last season but currently weighs 254 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: James will receive more playing time in 2016 and should be a target in the red zone. He probably will not be selected during fantasy drafts but he could be a waiver wire option if he starts catching touchdowns.

Steelers | Little chance Le'Veon Bell wins appeal

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:03:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has vowed not to miss any games due to suspension for reportedly missing several drug tests, but no sources with knowledge of the situation believe he has a strong chance to win the appeal. As such, RB DeAngelo Williams would be in line to carry the load until Bell returns.

Fantasy Tip: He is still worth drafting as an RB1, but you'll obviously either need to draft DeAngelo Williams early or have plenty of depth on hand to fill the void in the first four games if his suspension is indeed upheld. Bell is a top-notch option when he is on the field.

Steelers | Antonio Brown won't hold out

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 06:19:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will report to training camp Thursday, July 28, despite displeasure with this contract. Brown is hopeful his contract situation will be addressed before the start of the season. He has $6.25 million and $8.71 million salaries the next two seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's 2015 was absurd with 136 catches for 1,834 yards and 10 scores. He's arguably the top player in all of fantasy and should be one of the first picks in PPR formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell: 'I won't miss games'

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:54:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell, who is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug policy, said "I'm not going to miss games, trust me." "I'm gonna win the appeal...ppl have no idea what happened, but don't worry...let em hate," Bell wrote directly to a fan. "When I end up missin no games at all, ppl for sure gonna try to love me again and I'm only ridin with my LOYAL fans!!"

Fantasy Tip: Bell is rather optimistic about his chances, that's for sure. There's a good chance he won't win the suspension, though, so a player that would've been a surefire top-five pick in point-per-reception leagues now becomes more of a midrange RB1. DeAngelo Williams finds himself in a similar spot replacing Bell, and he put up great numbers in 2016 in a leading role. But draft Williams as more of an RB3/flex type with more value to open up the season.
