|Steelers | More on Le'Veon Bell's franchise tag|
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:17:35 -0800
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was given the exclusive franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27, meaning he cannot negotiate with other teams. The tag will earn Bell at least $12 million for 2017.
Fantasy Tip: As has been stated previously, Bell should be one of the first players taken in fantasy drafts in 2017 as long as he is healthy. The Steelers could rely on him even more if they feel Ben Roethlisberger is regressing.

|Steelers | Le'Veon Bell tagged|
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 13:01:11 -0800
Fantasy Tip: No surprise here. Bell could end up being a Steeler for the remainder of his career. He's one of the most skilled running backs in football and should be one of the first running backs, and players, taken in fantasy drafts this year.

|Steelers | Tag likely for Le'Veon Bell|
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 11:11:03 -0800
Fantasy Tip: There's no way the Steelers are going to let their star running back leave Pittsburgh. Look for Bell to play this year under the tag while both sides hammer out a long-term deal. Bell should be one of the first three to five players taken in fantasy drafts as long as he's healthy.

|Steelers | Not much progress between PIT Le'Veon Bell|
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:47:30 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell has not made much progress in contract talks with the Steelers and likely will receive the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement before the deadline.
Fantasy Tip: Bell should be with the Steelers for at least one more year and should continue to be a focal point in their offense. He likely will be a top five pick in all fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.

|Steelers | No surgery for Le'Veon Bell|
Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:43:25 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) is not scheduled to undergo groin surgery at this time even though he met with doctors after the season, according to a source. Bell probably would have had surgery by now if it was necessary.
Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will rehab the injury during the offseason and could be limited during workouts but should be fine for training camp. He probably will receive the franchise tag from the Steelers or sign a long-term contract. He continues to be one of the best running backs in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

|Steelers | Pitt will tag Le'Veon Bell if needed|
Thu, 16 Feb 2017 14:58:07 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell will hit the free-agent market March 9, and general manager Kevin Colbert said signing Bell and tagging Bell are both options. "The tag is always an option, and it's something we'll use if necessary," Colbert said. Colbert did add that even if Bell is tagged the Steelers still want to sign him to a long-term deal eventually.
Fantasy Tip: Bell is perennially one of the best running backs in the league. It would be in the Steelers' best interest to sign their star running back to a long-term contract sooner rather than later. It's unlikely that Bell will be playing for another team in 2017. He should be one of the first players taken in fantasy drafts as long as he is in good health.

|Steelers | Pitt wants two playmakers for life|
Thu, 16 Feb 2017 12:19:03 -0800
Fantasy Tip: One would hope so. Bell and Brown are two of the best players in the NFL and arguably the best at their respective positions. Both are early first-round picks no matter the format, as long as they're healthy.

|Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's injury being investigated|
Tue, 14 Feb 2017 12:17:18 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) and the Steelers are being investigated by the NFL over injury report protocol regarding Bell's groin injury. The injury was not listed on injury reports in the weeks before the AFC Championship. Bell left that game because of the groin injury. Pittsburgh has said that Bell's injury did not impact his practice participation as Bell missed practice due to a personal matter, not an injury. These investigations may lead to fines, suspensions or lost draft picks.
Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that the Steelers would be punished if Bell indeed missed practice because of a personal matter. Nonetheless, Bell is arguably the best player in the fantasy football realm and is worthy of being the No. 1 overall pick in all formats next season.

|Steelers | Le'Veon Bell seeking third opinion|
Tue, 07 Feb 2017 20:50:50 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) mentioned to people around him that he will seek a third opinion on potentially getting surgery. Previously, one doctor told him to get it, while the other suggested rest.
Fantasy Tip: This is the injury that led to Bell departing in the AFC Championship Game, and while his course of action is still unknown, owners can pretty much dismiss this issue going into next season. By the start of training camp, he should be back to 100 percent, and as a result, he can be safely relied upon as one of the first few players taken off the board in drafts everywhere.

|Steelers | Le'Veon Bell still weighing surgery|
Wed, 01 Feb 2017 10:14:21 -0800
Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) is still assessing his options to determine if he needs offseason groin surgery. "I'm kind of in the process of seeing a couple of doctors, seeing if I have to get surgery or not," Bell said. "I'm hoping for the best, but I understand it's a tough game. If I don't get surgery, I go into the rehab process, work hard, get back to how I was last year, or actually, better. I'm going to take it from there."
Fantasy Tip: Bell is set to become a free agent in March but is a priority for the Steelers. It would be surprising if he signed elsewhere. He remains a surefire RB1 as long as he enters draft season healthy and out of trouble.
