Steelers | No update on Le'Veon Bell talks

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 10:22:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said there is no update in terms of the long-term contract talks with RB Le'Veon Bell.

Fantasy Tip: The two sides have until the middle of July to reach a long-term agreement, so owners should monitor the situation. Bell likely would sit out until the start of the regular season if he does not get a new contract. He is one of the best option in fantasy leagues and should be a top five pick in all leagues as long as he is playing.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell a no-show at workouts

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 13:07:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is working out in Miami as the Steelers begin voluntary workouts. Long-term contract negotiations are currently at an impasse between Bell and Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here. Bell wants a long-term contract and Pittsburgh's focus is elsewhere right now. Time will tell how long Bell will hold out from Steelers activities, but he's arguably the No. 1 fantasy pick when he returns.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell officially tagged

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 11:52:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell was officially given the franchise tag Tuesday, March 6, according to a source. Bell's tag is worth $14.544 million.

Fantasy Tip: As has been well documented, Bell is arguably the best running back and/or player in the National Football League. He's a No. 1 running back and virtually a No. 1 or No. 2 wide receiver. He wants to be paid more and could hold out if a deal isn't struck. As long as he doesn't hold out into the season, Bell deserves to be the first player taken in fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell mulling options if tagged

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 17:25:32 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell reportedly is leaving "all options on the table" if he receives the franchise tag for a second straight season, including retirement, skipping training camp or holding out until Week 10, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have reportedly raised their offer from last year, but Bell is insisting on "playing for strictly my value to the team" and does not plan on playing for less than $14.5 million per year. After such a high-usage year in 2017, Pittsburgh is right to take this year-to-year. While he is still very much an elite fantasy RB1, owners would be wise to be cautious in how highly they value him. Durability and dependability have not been his biggest assets throughout his career.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell, Steelers not close to deal

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 16:46:08 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers are still not close to agreeing on a long-term contract extension, hence the expectation that Bell will be tagged before the deadline Tuesday, March 6. Bell wants to be paid much more than $14.5 million per year and for that amount to take into account how valuable he is as a pass-catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Bell deserves to be paid, but it may take some time for the two sides to come to an agreement. We'll see if Bell holds out once he is tagged, but for now he can still be viewed as the No. 1 fantasy running back and even No. 1 fantasy player.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell tagged again

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 13:43:45 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is receiving the franchise tag for a second straight year barring an unforeseen last-minute, long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Both sides have plenty of time to negotiate a long-term deal with Bell being tagged. As stated earlier, there is a good case for Bell being the first player taken in 2018 fantasy drafts.
