Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may wait for new deal

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 10:57:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is a candidate for a contract extension, but the Steelers may want to make sure he is completely recovered from his knee injury before signing him.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to be ready for the start of training camp and should be a big part of the offense in 2016. Bell is one of the best running backs in fantasy football when healthy and should be a first-round option in most drafts.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams will be used

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 09:30:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams will be used by offensive coordinator Todd Haley in 2016 despite the return of RB Le'Veon Bell from injury. "I think the difference between last year and this year is that we got a big body of work from DeAngelo last year," said Haley. "We got to see him do a lot of things, and obviously he did a very good job for us. Knowing a lot more about him will maybe help give Le'Veon more rest when he needs it, although knowing Le'Veon he never wants to come off."

Fantasy Tip: Williams proved very valuable as a waiver-wire darling last year after Bell went down with injury, so he's surely capable of being productive with fewer carries, too. However, it remains to be seen how much he'll be used, and as long as Bell is healthy, Williams' fantasy value remains low.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell deflects injury proneness

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:54:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) doesn't believe each of his three injuries in each of his first three seasons in the NFL aren't indicative of him being injury prone. Bell said he's still going to be physical but protect himself at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Bell is still a top RB1 consideration despite coming off a serious injury. He has added value in PPR formats, too.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell full-go by camp?

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:41:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he will be 100% healthy by training camp. He has already participated in individual drills during organized team activities, including running and cutting, as he continues to recover from a torn medial collateral ligament.

Fantasy Tip: The prognosis is encouraging for Bell, but the Steelers probably won't push him too hard this offseason or in the preseason. There is a risk factor, of course, as he's coming off a serious injury, but he should still be viewed as a top-tier RB1, especially in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell says he'll be ready

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:19:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee), who is recovering from surgery for a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee, said he plans on making a full return in time for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Before we get our hopes up we'll want to see how Bell looks in training camp as he tests his surgically repaired knee. But if he's on track to be a full go in Week 1 this fall, Bell makes the case as a top overall fantasy pick, especially in point-per-reception setups.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unknown for OTAs

Wed, 11 May 2016 05:54:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) status for organized team activities in a few weeks is unknown, but he's expected to be limited if he's cleared. Training camp might be the best gauge used to determine his status as he's six months removed from right knee surgery. There's no timetable for a full return. As it stands, there's no definitive reason to believe Bell will miss Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's knee injury has been a bit of a mystery, but, as stated, he should be ready for the beginning of the season. It's not known if he'll be as effective or full strength until the season gets going. He's a high-end RB1 consideration with some caution flags after two severe knee injuries.

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:25:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will be limited during offseason workouts but appears to be on track for training camp and the start of the 2016 season. Bell will be a first-round pick in all drafts if he is healthy and will be in contention for the first overall pick.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell part of initial drug testing

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:50:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tweeted that he was part of the initial round of random drug tests Wednesday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: For what it's worth, Bell also tweeted "good luck with that sample." There has been some doubt whether he'll be ready for the season after his knee injury. When he's right, he's arguably the best running back in fantasy. Devoid of setbacks, he should be among the first few RBs taken.
