Steelers | Le'Veon Bell back in action

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:19:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will return from his three-game suspension in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bell will face a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in his season debut. He'll be a low-end RB1, but rust to a certain degree should be expected.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell feels good

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 06:08:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said his knee felt good during the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26, and expects to feel even better after his three-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's fantasy value does take a small hit because of the suspension, but he should still be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues. Bell probably will be selected in the first or second round in most drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell shows off hands

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 20:13:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell had three carries for 21 yards and caught all five of his targets for 37 yards against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: His three-game suspension takes him out of the mix for the top pick, but his ceiling is so high, particularly in PPR formats, he is still worth selecting in the second round.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play Friday

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 09:42:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) will play in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bell will miss the first three games of the season because of his suspension, so he will need some playing time during the preseason. The suspension does hurt his value, but he should still be considered a No. 1 running back in most leagues and will be selected in one of the first two or three rounds of drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hearing update

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 10:26:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell says no hearing date has been scheduled for the appeal of his four-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: It would be nice to know something sooner than later, but the smart bet is he will not win the appeal, and you should downgrade him to about Round 3 or Round 4 in PPR drafts.

Steelers | PIT starters out second preseason game

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:42:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams and WR Antonio Brown won't play in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bell, Brown and Big Ben are all amidst the first pack in fantasy at their respective positions. D-Will is an RB3 as he'll take a backseat when Bell returns from his suspension.

Steelers | Pittsburgh to sit several players

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 11:15:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams, WR Antonio Brown and C Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: All of the players will be rested and should play in the next few preseason games. Brown likely will be one of the first players selected in drafts, while Bell probably will be a No. 1 running back once he returns from his suspension. Roethlisberger should also be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. Williams will have increased value over the first month of the season with Bell out but should also be a flex option when Bell returns.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell back to full strength

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 14:06:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is "running and cutting without thinking about his surgically repaired knee", according to ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler. "I feel I can protect myself. Even jump-cutting, if I decide I want to jump over somebody, jump in the end zone, whatever it may be, I feel I'll be able to do all that. My leg feels great. I felt I got all my speed back. I wasn't even thinking about my knee at all (Friday, Aug. 5)," Bell said.

Fantasy Tip: While it appears he has cleared the mental hurdle in regards to his injury, Bell still has a four-game suspension looming. He is arguably the best back in fantasy when he's on the field, but that has been easier said than done lately. Nevertheless, he's still worth a second-round investment in most leagues, particularly if owners are successful in landing DeAngelo Williams as a handcuff.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not limited

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:32:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) appeared to be a full participant during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is coming off a knee injury and likely will miss the first four games of the season but appears to be healthy. Bell's fantasy value will take a hit because of the suspension but he should still be considered a No. 1 running back in most leagues.
