Steelers | Le'Veon Bell extension iffy before deadline?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 13:10:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has a 50% chance of agreeing to a long-term extension before the July 17 deadline, in the opinion of Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. La Canfora cites Bell's history of injuries and suspensions as logical reasons to take a year-by-year approach with Bell. Plus, Bell counts $12 million against the Steelers' salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is arguably the best running back in football, but $12 million is a steep price to pay for a running back, no matter how good they are. Deal or not, it would behoove owners with a top three draft pick to select Bell.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's workload being discussed

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 20:54:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's workload has been a topic of conversation for the coaching staff, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. "He's a guy who gets stronger every game," Haley said. "He does not want to come out of the game. He's a year older. We've got to make sure we cover all of that, which we will and do as a staff."

Fantasy Tip: Bell is one of the true workhorse backs left in the NFL, and he is also one of the most versatile backs. Expect him to see all the touches he can handle again in 2017, and he should be one of the first two players selected in drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may miss minicamp

Wed, 31 May 2017 13:23:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could skip the rest of organized team activities and the team's minicamp because he still has not signed his franchise tender, according to sources. Bell and the team has had some discussions about a long-term deal, but neither side seems worried about the situation at this point.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have about six weeks to sign Bell to a long-term deal, so owners should monitor the situation. Bell is one of the best running backs in the NFL and will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | No timetable for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 13:08:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said there is no timetable for RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) but the team wants him to be 100 percent for the start of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: Bell probably will not do much during offseason workouts and could be limited during training camp but should be fine for Week 1. Bell is one of the top running backs in the NFL when he is healthy and will be a first-round pick in all fantasy drafts.

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 08:02:41 -0700

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell fine with playing under tag

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 15:05:41 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Bell will be with the Steelers for at least one more year and has a few months to work on a long-term deal with the team. He will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Steelers and will be a must-start option in all leagues.

Steelers | Pitt, Le'Veon Bell talking long-term deal

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 14:45:58 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers are heavily involved in negotiations on a long-term deal, according to a source. Terms of the possible deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised if Bell becomes the highest paid running back in the NFL. In seasons in which Bell has played at least 12 games, he has averaged 1,786.0 total yards and 9.3 total touchdowns. Bell deserves to be one of the first few players, maybe even the first player, taken in fantasy drafts this year.

Steelers | No decision on Le'Veon Bell surgery

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 11:31:14 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) still has not decided whether he will undergo groin surgery and will need to make a decision in the near future. Bell recently had a second opinion on his groin injury.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier reports indicated that Bell is not expected to need surgery, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Bell probably would not be on the field until training camp if he needs surgery but likely would be ready for the 2017 season. Bell should be a first round pick in all leagues if he is healthy and could be an option for the first overall pick.

Steelers | More on Le'Veon Bell's franchise tag

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:17:35 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was given the exclusive franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27, meaning he cannot negotiate with other teams. The tag will earn Bell at least $12 million for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: As has been stated previously, Bell should be one of the first players taken in fantasy drafts in 2017 as long as he is healthy. The Steelers could rely on him even more if they feel Ben Roethlisberger is regressing.
