Steelers | Le'Veon Bell fine with punishment

Thu, 14 May 2015 16:22:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said Thursday, May 14, that he didn't have a problem with his three-game suspension for being charged with possession of marijuana and driving under the influence. "I made a mistake," Bell said. "I'm going to just have to do my time, whatever the final decision may be. Get past it, and get ready for next season and continuing to be the great football player I know I can be."

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams will likely start the first three games of the season in Bell's stead. Bell still has RB1 potential if he can play the way he did last season when he amassed over 2,100 total yards and 11 total touchdowns.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell close to full health

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:31:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said his knee is close to being 100% after injuring it five weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be good to go for the 2015 season. Keep in mind that Bell has been suspended for the first three weeks of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He should still be a viable RB1 if he can maintain the pace he set in 2014.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell suspended three games

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 06:42:30 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was suspended three games and fined an additional game check after violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to league sources. He has appealed.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams will fill in for Bell, who figures to miss at least two games after his appeal is heard. If Bell's three-game absence is upheld, it's really hard to rely on him as an RB1. If you can acquire him as your second running back, you've had a good start to your draft.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell out just two games?

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 14:20:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of next season, according to sources. Bell is being suspended following an arrest last August for marijuana possession. Bell will be involved in a first-offender's program in which he will spend 15 months on probation. Bell faces a two-game suspension based on the terms of the NFL's new substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams figures to take over the starting role for the Steelers' first two games. He'll be a decent flex option with RB2 upside over the first two weeks until Bell returns. Bell should still be considered in RB1 territory despite the two-game suspension.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to miss four games?

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 13:23:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could be suspended up to four games, according to the NFL's new substance-abuse policy. A two-game suspension is standard for a DUI resulting from the use of alcohol. However, Bell's DUI came from marijuana use, so he could be suspended for a longer period of time.

Fantasy Tip: Missing four games would really put a dent in Bell's fantasy value, seeing as that's a fourth of the regular season. Bell is still expected to be suspended for at least two games. If he only misses two games, he could still easily be considered an RB1, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Steelers | PIT planning to be without Le'Veon Bell

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 15:08:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could very well be suspended for at least the first two games of the 2015 season. General manager Kevin Colbert said the team is planning on being without Bell at some point. Bell was arrested in August of 2014 for marijuana charges and driving under the influence.

Fantasy Tip: Bell was the top fantasy running back in 2014 and any suspension would certainly hurt his fantasy value. However, two games isn't a lot of missed time and he should still be able to produce No. 1 fantasy running back numbers assuming he can stay healthy and avoids further trouble.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to be suspended

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:58:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana charges, according to sources. Bell will spend 15 months on probation as part of the first-offender's program and will have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. RBs Josh D. Harris and Ben Tate took over when Bell missed the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's ability to catch passes out of the backfield will likely make him a top-five pick in PPR leagues next year. The news of a possible two-game suspension will be a hit to his draft value, but he should still be considered an RB1 everywhere.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell facing suspension?

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 09:08:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will spend 15 months on probation in a first-offender's program after his arrest last August for marijuana. He will also have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. Bell can petition the court to have his arrest record expunged if he finishes the probation program without incident. Defense attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. said that Bell will likely face up to a two-game NFL suspension.

Fantasy Tip: If Bell indeed faces a two-game suspension for the start of the 2015 season, that would likely bump him down from a surefire top-five pick in your fantasy football drafts. Stay tuned.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell able to work out

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 09:56:38 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been able to work out despite ending the season with an injured knee. "The knee is close to 100%," Bell said. "I'm probably about 85-90%, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little."

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be ready in more than enough time for next season if he's already running on his banged up knee. In 2014, Bell showed that he's a top-five fantasy football pick, especially in point-per-reception formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will not play in Pro Bowl

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 15:14:13 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has not been cleared to play in the 2015 Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still dealing with the knee injury he suffered in Week 17, but he should be fine for next season. Bell likely will be a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts next season because of his involvement in the running and passing game.
