Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not running yet

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 08:57:52 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he has not been cleared to run at this time. Bell suffered a torn medial collateral ligament during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his progress during the offseason to see if there will be any setbacks during Bell's recovery. Bell still has a few months to rest so he is not an injury concern at this point. He likely will be selected in the first round of league next season if he is healthy.

Steelers | No big offer for Le'Veon Bell?

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 19:22:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell won't receive a "break-bank offer" this offseason, according to beat writer Ed Bouchette.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's injury history is likely a cause for concern, but he is an elite fantasy running back when healthy. He is entering a contract year, and if he performs well in 2016, expect Pittsburgh and plenty of other teams to be lining up to pay him.

Steelers | President wants Le'Veon Bell to stay

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 13:40:32 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is entering a contract year, and team president Art Rooney said he would like Bell's football future to be in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: The ideal goal for the Steelers will be to sign Bell to a long-term deal, although they may not pay as much as Bell or his agent would like. We'll see what transpires over the next few months, but Bell is a top-tier fantasy running back when healthy.

Steelers | Le'Veon to be fine for next year

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 15:56:00 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is expected to be back in time for the regular season opener in 2016 after injuring the medial collateral and posterior collateral ligaments in his knee. The anterior cruciate ligament in Bell's right knee was uninjured, making it an easier recovery. A realistic timetable for a recovery is six to nine months. It's unknown when Bell will undergo surgery on his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's 2015 season was obviously a big disappointment, considering he went as high as No. 1 overall in a lot of fantasy leagues. He's deserving of the top overall spot again next year (mainly in PPR leagues), and he won't have a two-game suspension hanging over his head this time, either.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell's ACL intact

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 09:45:29 -0800

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee is intact, which helps his recovery timetable.

Fantasy Tip: He's still lost for the season, but it is good news. DeAngelo Williams ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) makes a risky RB2 against the Oakland Raiders this week. He looked great early in the season when Bell was suspended, but there's no guarantee that carries over on FantasyScore this week.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to IR, Isaiah Pead signs

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 11:21:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 2, and free-agent RB Isaiah Pead (Rams) was signed to an undisclosed deal in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: You can safely drop Bell in all redraft formats. Pead is nothing more than depth for Pittsburgh's ground game. DeAngelo Williams is the one you want to own now, and he should be picked up immediately in all formats. He performed very well in Bell's two-game absence to start the season and can put up RB1 numbers in the right matchups.

Steelers | Torn MCL for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:30:05 -0800

Updating a previous story, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has a badly torn MCL and other damage and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: With Bell out of action, DeAngelo Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) becomes a player to grab if he is available in your league. He was productive while starting for two games at the start of the year while Bell served a suspension.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams set to start?

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:13:30 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams could be in line to start if results of an MRI for RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) confirm that he will miss the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) ran for 204 yards and three touchdowns in two games as the starter while Bell was suspended to start the year, so he has shown what he can do when given a heavy workload. He is a must-add player in seasonal leagues if available.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell likely out for year

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:07:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) expected to be put on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury, pending MRI confirmation. RB Isaiah Pead is in line to take his spot on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: With Bell likely done for the year, DeAngelo Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is in line for a big boost in carries. Pick him up if he is available, and he could make a solid option at FantasyScore going forward depending on his price tag.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may have MCL injury

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 14:35:04 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) had an initial exam that suggested his injury may be a torn medial collateral ligament and not a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) may have dodged a major bullet with this injury, but he will still be sidelined for a while either way. It looks like DeAngelo Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be the featured back moving forward, and he had 71 yards on nine carries against the Cincinnati Bengals.
