Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's suspension reduced

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:00:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's original three-game suspension has been reduced to a two-game suspension Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has still been drafted pretty high, but his value increases with the extra game he gains via this reduction. Despite the fact that he'll only be playing in 14 games, barring an injury, he could easily still finish as a RB1, if not the top running back in PPR games. DeAngelo Williams is expected to start the first two games of the season, so taking him late in drafts is a worthwhile goal.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell staying prepared

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:27:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell doesn't know yet how many games he'll be missing this season due to an impending suspension. Bell is focused on training camp and being a better teammate, though. He said he's going to give it his all every time he's on the practice field. Bell also said he might be given a lighter load in training camp this time around.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could end up being suspended somewhere between one and three games. Whether his suspension is reduced or upheld, he should still be regarded as a RB1. If his suspension is reduced, he should still be an early first-round pick. If he still ends up serving a three-game suspension, he's more of a late first-round pick to early second-round pick.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell working to reduce ban

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 08:25:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's legal team and the NFL are negotiating to reduce Bell's three-game suspension to one or two games.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's fantasy stock would firmly be in the top half of the first round of most drafts if a game was knocked off his three-game suspension.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in rare company

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:46:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell joined RBs Marshall Faulk and Roger Craig last season as the only running backs in history to gain 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same year.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is a special talent, but that talent could be on the sideline for three games if Bell's three-game suspension isn't reduced. He should still be one of the first running backs off the board in fantasy drafts even if the suspension is upheld.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams busy as backup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:39:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams said he "absolutely" received enough work as the backup during the first day of training camp Sunday, July 26, and he expects to be ready to start Week 1 if RB Le'Veon Bell is suspended.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still waiting to appeal his suspension, but Williams will likely have to start for at least a couple of games. He will have short-term value at FantasyScore while Bell is sidelined, and in seasonal leagues, Bell owners should try to grab Williams as an insurance policy.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell looks explosive

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:31:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell looked explosive during the first day of training camp Sunday, July 26, and he said he is in the best shape of his life.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still waiting to have his appeal of a three-game suspension, but even if he misses three games, he should still provide RB1 value as the workhorse back in Pittsburgh's powerful offense.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams being challenged

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 17:11:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams is not receiving any first-team reps despite RB Le'Veon Bell facing a three-game suspension, head coach Mike Tomlin said. Tomlin also said he is challenging Williams in ways that are uncomfortable for a 10-year veteran.

Fantasy Tip: It seems pretty clear that Williams is only going to have a worthwhile role in the offense while Bell is suspended or if he misses time for another reason. If you draft Bell, consider adding Williams as an insurance policy.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not 100% yet

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 16:27:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said his right knee isn't 100% yet, but he said it's close.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to be ready for training camp, but he still hasn't had his appeal of a three-game suspension heard yet. Bell is still a legit RB1, but missing three games makes him drop a tier.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell appeal update

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:25:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he doesn't even have a hearing date yet for an appeal on his three-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: It's certainly taking a while for the wheels to roll regardin Bell's case. This situation will need to be monitored throughout training camp and the preseason. For now, he should still be viewed as a RB1 even though he may be playing 13 games.

Steelers | LeVeon Bell appeal not heard yet

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:29:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's supposed appeal for his three-game suspension has not been brought to the attention of commissioner Roger Goodell. Bell was suspended for possession of marijuana and driving under the influence.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should still be viewed as a RB1 even if his three-game suspension is upheld. He's arguably the most versatile running back in the NFL and should be selected early in the first round of drafts.
