Steelers | Le'Veon Bell made historic mark

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:11:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's 157.0 yards from scrimmage per game in 2016 were third most ever for a running back in one season.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers were wise and fed Bell the ball throughout his 12 games. Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott each deserve to be the first running back taken in fantasy drafts, but Bell and Johnson have more value in PPR formats.

Steelers | Big night for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:11:48 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards, with no touchdowns, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Yardage leagues would have gained many points from Bell's performance, but don't let that discourage you from including Bell among RB1 or RB2 selections for next season. Assuming Bell keeps his nose clean and stays away from substances, he should be setting himself up well for a good payday and a strong 2017.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's future at receiver?

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 21:45:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he could see himself playing receiver later in his career when the wear and tear of playing running backs starts to take a toll.

Fantasy Tip: A move to receiver could end up adding a few years to the end of his career, but for now, Bell is one of the most complete running backs in the game a top-three fantasy option at his position.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's style poses a challenge

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 18:39:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's unique running style is difficult to prepare for, according to Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry, and defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said Bell's patience makes it hard for defenders to remain in their gaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ran for 144 yards on 18 carries against Kansas City in the regular season, and the Chiefs' 26th-ranked run defense isn't likely to have an answer for him in this weekend's rematch either. Bell should be one of the top overall fantasy plays in the divisional round.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell does not practice

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 12:55:34 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has received a lot of touches this season, so he was just receiving a day off to rest. Bell will be used in the running and passing game against the Kansas City Chiefs and should be an attractive starting option in all leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell likely to take Wednesday off

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 09:49:18 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Jan. 11, for maintenance reasons after touching the ball 31 times in the team's Wild Card win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a similar workload Sunday in Arrowhead Stadium. Bell has been on a serious roll since Week 11, amassing at least 137 total yards in every game while adding seven touchdowns. He gouged the Chiefs for 176 total yards on 23 touches in his season debut in Week 4 and figures to surpass that as Ben Roethlisberger historically struggles on the road. Bell should be considered the top RB play on the board again this weekend.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell scores twice

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 14:19:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins. He also caught two passes for seven yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell continues to be one of the best running backs in the NFL and has recorded at least 118 rushing yards in six of his last seven games. He will be facing a tougher defense in the Divisional round of the playoffs but is still a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | PIT likely to use franchise tag on Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 08:36:28 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to use the franchise tag on RB Le'Veon Bell this offseason, although they hope to work out a long-term deal with him.

Fantasy Tip: Bell collected nearly 1,900 all-purpose yards and reached the end zone nine times in just 12 games during the regular season. The 24-year-old should be viewed as a high-end RB1 in postseason fantasy pools and deserves to be a first-round selection in all 2017 seasonal drafts.
