Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hopes to play

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 13:51:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) did some running Monday, Dec. 2, and is hoping to play in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 13 contest. "I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play but if (I'm) not able to I'm not able to." Bell doesn't remember the hit but hasn't had many lingering effects from the violent collision. He took an ImPACT test Sunday, Dec. 1, and will have to pass more concussion tests before being cleared.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Bell will have over a full week to recover from his ugly concussion. It will all depend on whether he passes the concussion tests this week. The fact that he's already running is a good sign, though. Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer will split the duties in the backfield if Bell isn't cleared. If Bell plays, he should be in your lineups against the Miami Dolphins. Jones and Dwyer are desperation flex plays.

Steelers | Big Ben unsure of Le'Veon Bell's return

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 11:23:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to make his season debut against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, but QB Ben Roethlisberger isn't so sure of that. "Honestly, I have no idea with him," Roethlisberger said. "You can't get a read on him. One day, he's practicing, one day, he's not; one day, he's going hard, the next day, he's not. I wish I could." Bell was banged up in the preseason and only rushed four times for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Tomlin continues to say that how much Bell plays on Sunday will depend on how he looks in practice this week. Stay updated on Bell's practice status, but we get the feeling that he'll be eased in against the Vikings before the team's Week 5 bye. It'd be unwise to rely on him this week. Felix Jones or Jonathan Dwyer are better options.

Steelers | Isaac Redman sinks to bottom of depth chart

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 12:45:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman, the team's Week 1 starter at running back, is now listed as fourth on the depth chart behind RBs Felix Jones, Le'Veon Bell (foot) and Jonathan Dwyer, in that order. Jones is the team's leading rusher with 71 yards and is averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Bell is expected to play in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, but they'll likely ease him back into the mix.

Fantasy Tip: With Pitt's bye week in Week 5, they won't want to put too much on the shoulders of Bell immediately. He's the best back to own in this backfield long term, but Jones is probably the better play against the Vikes.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to play

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 09:49:07 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to play in the team's Week 4 game in London against the Minnesota Vikings. Bell has progressed ahead of schedule from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bell may not be 100 percent this weekend, but it looks like there's a good chance he'll be on the field. A combination of Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman haven't gotten it done in three weeks. Dwyer looked solid last week, however, so he may split the carries with Bell this weekend.

Steelers | Felix Jones to see more opps

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 10:30:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator said the team will try to get RB Felix Jones the ball more in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears. "I thought he did a good job on the carries he had," Haley said of Jones' effort in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, when he ran 10 times for 37 yards. "He found the holes that were there. We need to do a better job of creating some space for him because he does look like he has some ability if we can get him into some space." The offensive line will use more of their zone blocking scheme this week.

Fantasy Tip: A weak offensive line and a tough matchup against the Bears isn't a good combination for Jones this week. The move to more of a zone blocking scheme should be good for Jones in the short term, though, until Le'Veon Bell (foot) makes his return.
