Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to report before season

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 10:27:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report to the Steelers prior to the commencement of the regular season, although it is unclear exactly when he will report, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bell continues to wait for a long-term deal after being tagged this offseason. Nevertheless, he will return to the field as arguably the best running back in the game. He has to be one of the first two players taken off the board in any format.

Steelers | Coach talking with Le'Veon Bell

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:09:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he has been in contact with RB Le'Veon Bell during his holdout but does not have an update on when Bell will report. Bell is working out in South Florida and may report to the team in late August.

Fantasy Tip: Bell probably does not need a lot of practice time before he plays in a game, so he likely will skip most of the preseason. Bell has dealt with injuries during his career but is one of the top running backs in the NFL when healthy. He should be a first-round pick in all leagues and could be selected with the first-overall pick.

Steelers | James Conner soaking up reps

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 21:28:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner said he is excited to receive first-team reps while RB Le'Veon Bell holds out from training camp, and he is focused on mastering the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: Bell will be the workhorse back as long as he is healthy, but Conner is a solid handcuff to grab in the later rounds. He would likely step into a big role if Bell goes down.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to face consequences?

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 07:48:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will face consequences for not signing his franchise tag tender and missing training camp, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. "There is no question we are a group that values the team-building process," Tomlin said Thursday, July 27. "And doing it in this setting, so yes, there is value, and yes, there are consequences for not being here. That's the reality of it." Pittsburgh cannot fine Bell for his absence because he has not signed his tender. "They're untold as we sit here," Tomlin said, when asked about the nature of those consequences.

Fantasy Tip: ... Uh, sure thing. If that isn't the ultimate coach speak, what is? Tomlin is simply trying to put public pressure on his star running back to sign the franchise tender and get onto the field with his teammates. Our best guess is that the issue will be resolved sooner than later. Regardless, unless it lingers into the regular season, Bell is barely affected by missing camp and is a top-three pick in all formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not reporting to camp

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 13:20:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not report to training camp as he has not signed his franchise tender.

Fantasy Tip: As has been well documented, Bell wants to be paid. Quite frankly, he deserves to be paid. He's arguably the best running back in the NFL when he's healthy or not suspended. Assuming Bell eventually shows up and doesn't hold out into the season, draft him with one of the first three picks, especially in PPR formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell a workhorse in 2016

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 09:27:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season, but once he returned, he received 85.6 percent of the team's carries and 21.6 percent of the team's targets over the final 13 games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Needless to say, that kind of workload is highly unusual for a running back in today's game and does not figure to be repeated anytime soon. Assuming Ben Roethlisberger, Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown all stay healthy for the bulk of this season, expect the aforementioned percentages to dip into the 70- and 15-percent ranges, respectively. That still plenty of work to keep Bell in the conversation among the top three picks of any fantasy draft.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play in Week 1

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 18:15:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't committed to reporting to training camp on time, but he plans to play in every regular season game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could skip some of camp as he lobbies for a lucrative long-term extension, but with no plans to take a holdout into the regular season, he remains a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in all formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell looking to be paid like RB, WR

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 17:48:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he is looking for a deal that will pay him like a No. 1 running back plus a No. 2 wide receiver, according to NFL Network analyst Ike Taylor.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finished fifth in the NFL with his 1,268 rushing yards in 2016, and his 75 receptions ranked second on the team. He will remain with the Steelers for at least one more season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues as long as he joins the team before Week 1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell had big offer

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 11:54:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was given an offer that would have averaged $12 million per year. He would have earned $30 million over the first two years and $42 million over three years, according to sources. The franchise tag he will play under in 2017 is worth $12.1 million.

Fantasy Tip: Bell apparently wants more over the next several years of his career. He deserves it as arguably the best running back in the NFL. He does have a history of suspensions, but he remains a No. 1 overall pick candidate.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may sit out camp

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:13:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell may not sign his franchise tag tender until the Steelers break training camp, in the opinion of an unnamed teammate.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was not able to agree to a long-term extension, so he may not report to the team until close to the start of the regular season. Bell will continue to be a main part of the Steelers offense and is a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
