Pittsburgh Steelers news, rumors and injuries

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could be suspended up to four games, according to the NFL's new substance-abuse policy. A two-game suspension is standard for a DUI resulting from the use of alcohol. However, Bell's DUI came from marijuana use, so he could be suspended for a longer period of time.
Fantasy Tip: Missing four games would really put a dent in Bell's fantasy value, seeing as that's a fourth of the regular season. Bell is still expected to be suspended for at least two games. If he only misses two games, he could still easily be considered an RB1, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could earn around $20 million per year once his new contract is finalized, according to former NFL general manager Mark Dominik. This would make Roethlisberger one of the top-five highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is coming off a career year, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise if/when he receives a big, new contract. With a young and talented supporting cast including players like Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Markus Wheaton, Roethlisberger should be considered a QB1 heading into 2015.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones is currently the only outside linebacker with any NFL experience, but general manager Kevin Colbert is confident the team will be fine at the outside linebacker position once August rolls around. This would imply that the Steelers will either be drafting an outside linebacker or signing someone in free agency.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could very well be suspended for at least the first two games of the 2015 season. General manager Kevin Colbert said the team is planning on being without Bell at some point. Bell was arrested in August of 2014 for marijuana charges and driving under the influence.
Fantasy Tip: Bell was the top fantasy running back in 2014 and any suspension would certainly hurt his fantasy value. However, two games isn't a lot of missed time and he should still be able to produce No. 1 fantasy running back numbers assuming he can stay healthy and avoids further trouble.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana charges, according to sources. Bell will spend 15 months on probation as part of the first-offender's program and will have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. RBs Josh D. Harris and Ben Tate took over when Bell missed the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Tip: Bell's ability to catch passes out of the backfield will likely make him a top-five pick in PPR leagues next year. The news of a possible two-game suspension will be a hit to his draft value, but he should still be considered an RB1 everywhere.

Pittsburgh Steelers OLB Jason Worilds, who will hit free agency this offseason, will be targeted for re-signing by the team. Worilds may have the transition tag applied to him once again, as it was in 2014.
