Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.
Fantasy Tip: Blount is a weak RB4 with some TD-only upside, but best serves as a handcuff to Le'Veon Bell.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.
Fantasy Tip: Bell could ultimately face a suspension from the league, but that is unlikely to take place this season. Bell is a mid-to-low RB1 in most leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play in the team's final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Starters normally don't play in the final preseason game, perhaps indicating this could be part of the punishment the two face for being charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Bell and Blount are still awaiting a decision on possible suspensions.
Fantasy Tip: The decision on a suspension should come any day now, though it may only be for a game or two if there is indeed a suspension issued.

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face a suspension from the team, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Bell and Blount were recently charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.
Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on this situation. If the two are suspended, it probably won't be for very long. Bell remains an RB2 option with RB1 upside.
