Steelers | Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown set NFL record

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:27:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the first pair of teammates since the 1970 merger with at least 700 scrimmage yards apiece in their team's first six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bell and Brown are obvious must-starts, but this stat reflects just how heavily the Steelers rely on them to carry the offense. Bell already has a league-high164 touches despite getting eased into action in Week 1, while Brown has nine more targets (74) and 196 more receiving yards than any other receiver.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell runs for 179 yards, TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:33:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 32 times for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added three grabs for 12 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: This is the Bell fantasy owners have been waiting for. After a slow start following his missing of training camp and the preseason, it took him a while to get on track. He had his biggest game against the best opponent the team has faced so far, and that's scary news for the rest of the league.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell could receive franchise tag again

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 09:42:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is likely to receive the franchise tag from the team next season, even though both sides will continue to work on a possible contract extension. Bell is reportedly seeking a multi-year deal worth $15 million annually but the Steelers are unlikely to offer him that much money, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has gotten off to a sluggish start this year after missing the entire preseason due to a contract dispute, with just one 100-yard rushing performance to date. That being said, the 25-year-old should still be viewed as a RB1 in all fantasy formats regardless of the opponent.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell totals 93 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:05:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 15 times for 47 yards in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added 10 receptions for 46 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The total yards from scrimmage is fine, but he failed to find the end zone for the third time in five games, and he has just one 100-yard rushing game to date. That's not exactly what fantasy owners expected from the first-round pick. He'll look for better results in Week 6, but faces a tough matchup in Kansas City.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell primed for big game?

Sat, 07 Oct 2017 19:02:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, and the Jaguars' run defense is ranked last in yards per attempt and yards per game and has allowed the third-most rushing touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finally looked like himself last week, piling up 186 total yards and two scores. A repeat performance could be on tap against Jacksonville's porous run defense, and Bell has a good chance to finish as the top fantasy back in Week 5.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 35 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added four catches for 42 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: This is the type of production Bell's fantasy owners have been patiently waiting for, as he had been performing nowhere close to expectation. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
