Steelers | LeGarrette Blount unlikely to sit

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:30:49 -0700

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.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:14:38 -0700

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.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell status

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:41:58 -0700

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.

Steelers | LeGarrette Blount charged

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:40:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount and RB Le'Veon Bell were charged by Ross Township Police Wednesday, Aug. 20, with marijuana possession.

Fantasy Tip: Blount could potentially be facing a one-game suspension, if you look around the league. Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe was penalized one game by the league for a similar infraction. However, the club could also potentially step up and penalize Blount (and Bell), too. His fantasy value was a bit limited with Bell expected to get a lion's share of the carries, but he is even less attractive if he misses any playing time.

Steelers | Preseason to determine RB rotation

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 17:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said training camp and preseason games will determine how the team uses RBs Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to receive most of the snaps at the position and should be taken in the first few rounds in most fantasy leagues. Blount probably should be considered as a handcuff to Bell or later-round flier in drafts. Archer likely will not be selected in a majority of drafts.
