Steelers | Le'Veon Bell sets team record

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:00:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell became the first running back in team history to start the year with seven straight games of 100 yards of total offense. Bell ran 12 times for 57 yards and caught eight passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 win over the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is an RB1 each and every week, especially in point-per-reception leagues, where he has excelled. The Steelers seem determined to continue to use him more in the passing game, too, which is excellent news for his owners.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell looking for plea deal

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:11:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be accepted into a probation program in his case for marijuana possession and driving under the influence charges, according to his attorney. Bell likely would serve one year of probation and could have his arrest record expunged.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bell will face any punishment from the NFL for his arrest, but Bell will continue to play for now. Bell has been a consistent producer for owners this season and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $7,400.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell waives hearing

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 06:04:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, Oct. 15, on marijuana possession and driving under the influence chargers. That means he and his attorney acknowledge police have enough evidence for the charges to go to Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, where Bell must either plead to all or some of the charges or stand trial.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has no chance at facing a suspension this season, as has been reported since the Aug. 20 arrest. Bell ($7,400; 14.8% of your cap) continues to be a solid weekly choice at RB1 on FantasyScore.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to see more carries?

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:08:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell wasn't the focus of the offensive in the Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. QB Ben Roethlisberger threw nine passes, was sacked twice and didn't hand the ball off once in the red zone in the game. Bell ran for 82 yards on 15 carries in the game, and he has 460 yards this year. "I feel like a lot of runners in the NFL: the more they get the ball, the more they get into a rhythm," Bell said. "The better (rhythm) I get, the game kind of slows down for you. You get into kind of a zone, as people will say." Bell is poised to see more carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. The Browns are 29th in rush defense and are allowing 152.5 rushing yards per game. Bell hinted the team won't be so one-dimensional in the red zone against the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expensive at FantasyScore ($7,700; 15.4% of cap), but he may be worth it against the Browns without Phil Taylor.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell sets team record

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:56:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has recorded 688 yards from scrimmage in his first five games, which sets a franchise record. Bell is also the first player in team history to record 100 yards from scrimmage in his first five games of a season. Bell rushed for 82 yards and caught five passes for 36 yards in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been a consistent option for owners this season because of his ability to produce in the running and passing game. Bell should be considered a weekly starting option in all leagues.

Steelers | Slimmer Le'Veon Bell running well

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 20:19:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell lost 20 pounds in the offseason, and he credits better conditioning for allowing him to make explosive plays like his 81-yard run in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Bell torched the vaunted Carolina defense for 147 yards on 21 carries in Week 3, and his 461 yards from scrimmage are the most in the NFL. He is the workhorse of a revitalized Pittsburgh rushing attack, and with the Steelers facing a Tampa Bay team that may be the worst in the NFL in Week 4, Bell could be a nice piece to build a lineup around at FantasyScore.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell piles up yards

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 21:30:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tallied 107 total yards in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, rushing 11 times for 59 yards and catching five passes for 48 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh fell behind and had to abandon the run, but Bell's versatility as a pass-catcher still allowed him to salvage a decent game. More importantly, the first two weeks of the season suggest that LeGarrette Blount is not going to a major factor in the backfield. Bell could have a tough time against a stout Carolina defense in Week 3, but he is worth considering as a starting running back in FantasyScore whenever he has a decent matchup.

Steelers | Big role for Le'Veon Bell?

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 19:11:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not have his role reduced much this season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. When asked if he could see Bell getting 20 to 25 touches a game this season, Tomlin said, "I think we drafted him with that in mind."

Fantasy Tip: Bell is going to share time in the backfield with LeGarrette Blount this year, but it sounds like Tomlin still plans on giving Bell a bulk of the touches. Fantasy owners should feel comfortable drafting Bell as a RB2, especially in PPR formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to sit

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:27:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could ultimately face a suspension from the league, but that is unlikely to take place this season. Bell is a mid-to-low RB1 in most leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:14:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play in the team's final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Starters normally don't play in the final preseason game, perhaps indicating this could be part of the punishment the two face for being charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Bell and Blount are still awaiting a decision on possible suspensions.

Fantasy Tip: The decision on a suspension should come any day now, though it may only be for a game or two if there is indeed a suspension issued.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell status

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:41:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face a suspension from the team, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Bell and Blount were recently charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on this situation. If the two are suspended, it probably won't be for very long. Bell remains an RB2 option with RB1 upside.

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 16:45:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell started against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night as he waits for a possible suspension after being charged for driving under the influence and marijuana possession.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell travels for game

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:07:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell traveled on his own for the team's third preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Bell did not travel on the team charter after he was arrested for driving under the influence and marijuana possession Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will face a punishment at some point because of the arrest, but it may not occur this season. Owners should still consider Bell as a starting running back that likely will start coming off the board in the second round.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may face ban

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:00:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could face a one-game suspension for his arrest stemming from DUI and marijuana possession charges. However, the suspension may not be rendered anytime soon.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in hot water

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:39:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and RB LeGarrette Blount were charged by Ross Township Police Wednesday, Aug. 20, with marijuana possession. Bell was also charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after the traffic stop Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could be facing disciplinary action from the team and/or the league, and he could very well end up being suspended. Blount might have been in line for carries in Bell's place, but he is likely to be in hot water, too. This matter is certainly not over. If you have drafted your fantasy team already, hang tight, as Bell will certainly have plenty of appeal still. However, if you have not yet drafted, drop Bell down a few spots, as a suspension could change his value dramatically depending on the amount of games he potentially misses.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell drops weight

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 05:19:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell shed 10 pounds in the offseason to weigh around 230 pounds. He said he feels lighter and is able to move better.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is being pegged by many to be poised for a breakout season. He very well could accomplish that feat, but he's still unproven. Look for him as a mid-to-low RB1.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell performed well during offseason workouts and has been showing improvements in his game, according to manager Mike Tomlin.

Steelers | Preseason to determine RB rotation

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 17:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said training camp and preseason games will determine how the team uses RBs Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to receive most of the snaps at the position and should be taken in the first few rounds in most fantasy leagues. Blount probably should be considered as a handcuff to Bell or later-round flier in drafts. Archer likely will not be selected in a majority of drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to get at least 300 carries?

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 11:46:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell may see at least 300 carries this season, according to a source. Pittsburgh has stated they are committing to the run this season.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is the unquestioned starter, but the Steelers also brought in LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer to spell Bell. Bell is firmly in RB2 territory with low end RB1 upside.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will likely see 300 carries this season, but not much more than that as the team will use RBs LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer to spell him and keep him fresh.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should also see a handful of receptions to make him a serviceable RB1.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to benefit from new coach

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 05:19:12 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell should benefit the most from the zone-blocking scheme new offensive line coach Mike Munchak plans to install. Bell is a patient, yet decisive runner, which is a perfect combination for the scheme.

Fantasy Tip: Bell could be a low-end RB1 next season and may be drafted in the second round of drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell on track

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 14:53:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) is on track to return in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins from a scary concussion he suffered in Week 13. He has passed all of the league-mandated concussion tests this week and should play this weekend. Bell has practiced both days this week and is expecting a normal workload Sunday against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Great news for Bell owners here. The collision looked very scary, so it's nice to see that Bell is not expected to miss any game action. He's a comfortable No. 2 RB for fantasy purposes, but Pittsburgh's beat up offensive line may set him back.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell doesn't remember much

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 11:18:36 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) said he's been feeling better after being knocked out in Week 13, but he doesn't remember much of the incident. "I don't remember the exact play. I didn't remember it when it first happened," said Bell. "Once I came off the field I didn't really know I had scored. Then they told me I did; then they told me it wasn't a touchdown. I wasn't aware of what was going on at the time because I got hit. I can't really remember what happened."

Fantasy Tip: The only thing that matters is that Bell is feeling fine and is already running. He'll need to pass the concussion protocol, but if he plays against the Miami Dolphins, consider him a solid No. 2 back.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hopes to play

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 13:51:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) did some running Monday, Dec. 2, and is hoping to play in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 13 contest. "I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play but if (I'm) not able to I'm not able to." Bell doesn't remember the hit but hasn't had many lingering effects from the violent collision. He took an ImPACT test Sunday, Dec. 1, and will have to pass more concussion tests before being cleared.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Bell will have over a full week to recover from his ugly concussion. It will all depend on whether he passes the concussion tests this week. The fact that he's already running is a good sign, though. Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer will split the duties in the backfield if Bell isn't cleared. If Bell plays, he should be in your lineups against the Miami Dolphins. Jones and Dwyer are desperation flex plays.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (head) was examined for a possible concussion after their Week 13 game. Bell left the game after a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit late in the fourth quarter.

Patriots | Isaac Sopoaga ready to start

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:33:37 -0700

New England Patriots DT Isaac Sopoaga has practiced with the team the last three days, and head coach Bill Belichick said that there's a good chance he'll play in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "He's in good condition, his reactions are what you'd expect them to be," Belichick noted. "He just has to get familiar with our terminology and some of the ways we play certain blocks and what his responsibilities are on blitzes and that kind of thing. He's a smart guy and he obviously has a lot of experience."

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots need all the help on the D-line since the loss of Vince Wilfork. They've struggled to stop the run since his injury. Le'Veon Bell is a strong play in Week 9.

Steelers | Big Ben unsure of Le'Veon Bell's return

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 11:23:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to make his season debut against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, but QB Ben Roethlisberger isn't so sure of that. "Honestly, I have no idea with him," Roethlisberger said. "You can't get a read on him. One day, he's practicing, one day, he's not; one day, he's going hard, the next day, he's not. I wish I could." Bell was banged up in the preseason and only rushed four times for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Tomlin continues to say that how much Bell plays on Sunday will depend on how he looks in practice this week. Stay updated on Bell's practice status, but we get the feeling that he'll be eased in against the Vikings before the team's Week 5 bye. It'd be unwise to rely on him this week. Felix Jones or Jonathan Dwyer are better options.

Steelers | Isaac Redman sinks to bottom of depth chart

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 12:45:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman, the team's Week 1 starter at running back, is now listed as fourth on the depth chart behind RBs Felix Jones, Le'Veon Bell (foot) and Jonathan Dwyer, in that order. Jones is the team's leading rusher with 71 yards and is averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Bell is expected to play in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, but they'll likely ease him back into the mix.

Fantasy Tip: With Pitt's bye week in Week 5, they won't want to put too much on the shoulders of Bell immediately. He's the best back to own in this backfield long term, but Jones is probably the better play against the Vikes.

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to play in the team's Week 4 game in London against the Minnesota Vikings. Bell has progressed ahead of schedule from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bell may not be 100 percent this weekend, but it looks like there's a good chance he'll be on the field. A combination of Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman haven't gotten it done in three weeks. Dwyer looked solid last week, however, so he may split the carries with Bell this weekend.
