Steelers | Le'Veon Bell: 'I won't miss games'

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:54:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell, who is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug policy, said "I'm not going to miss games, trust me." "I'm gonna win the appeal...ppl have no idea what happened, but don't worry...let em hate," Bell wrote directly to a fan. "When I end up missin no games at all, ppl for sure gonna try to love me again and I'm only ridin with my LOYAL fans!!"

Fantasy Tip: Bell is rather optimistic about his chances, that's for sure. There's a good chance he won't win the suspension, though, so a player that would've been a surefire top-five pick in point-per-reception leagues now becomes more of a midrange RB1. DeAngelo Williams finds himself in a similar spot replacing Bell, and he put up great numbers in 2016 in a leading role. But draft Williams as more of an RB3/flex type with more value to open up the season.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to win appeal

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:27:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to have a successful appeal for his pending four-game suspension due to the NFL's stringent policies. The results of the appeal are expected before the regular season starts. Additionally, Bell missed several drug tests resulting in the suspension, as opposed to the originally reported one missed test, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Bell will be missing the first four games of the 2016 season, paving the way for DeAngelo Williams to start in his place once again. Williams' fantasy value brings him up a few rounds, and he will be one of the top running back handcuffs, assuming Bell is suspended. Bell should still be considered a low-end RB1 option, while Williams is now worth a look as low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may face suspension

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 06:53:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy because of a missed test, according to sources. The appeals process is underway, and no announcement has been made. No date for Bell's appeal has been set, but it's expected to be heard before the start of the regular season. If it's not overturned, he would miss the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's important to note that this was because he missed a test, and it wasn't the result of a failed test. However, there is very little history of these things being overturned. Bell is coming off of torn ligaments in his knee, and the possibility of him missing a quarter of the season sparks a descent into the low-end RB1 mix. If the suspension is overturned, Bell is in the mix for the top back in PPR leagues. DeAngelo Williams was expected to remain involved with a healthy Bell, and the Steelers have two good matchups of the first four games. The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins were 32nd and 26th, respectively, in rushing yards allowed last season. They'll have two tough matchups against the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals, though. Williams will serve as a high-end RB3 in drafts, but he'll likely be reduced to an RB4 or a handcuff when Bell hits the field. Fitzgerald Toussaint is slated to back up Williams if Bell is absent. He could be worth a final-round flyer for depth.

Steelers | Matt Spaeth released by Steelers

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:55:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Matt Spaeth (knee) was released with a failed physical designation Thursday, July 21. "Matt never fully recovered from knee surgery that occurred this past offseason, and he will not be ready to return to football activities at this time," general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement released by the team.

Fantasy Tip: Spaeth was more known for his blocking skills than receiving talents in Pittsburgh, and he had just six catches in the last three seasons combined for them. No matter where he lands, he won't have any fantasy value to speak of.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams feeling great

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:43:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) said he has recovered from the foot injury he suffered last season and is in the best shape he has been in his life.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is coming off a terrific 2015 season and should receive decent playing time as a No. 2 running back this season. He should be selected in the middle to late rounds of most fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Sean Davis has chance to start

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:53:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers SS Sean Davis performed well during offseason workouts and should have a good chance to win the starting strong safety job during training camp. Davis will have to compete with FS Robert Golden and SS Shamarko Thomas for the job.

Steelers | Jesse James may see more work in camp

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:52:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James is expected to receive significant snaps during the early part of training camp because TE Ladarius Green (knee) likely will be eased back into practice.

Fantasy Tip: James should receive playing time in 2016 because of his blocking as well as his height. He likely will be a red zone target since he should have an advantage over most defenders. James probably should not be drafted in most leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Steelers | Bud Dupree might play more

Steelers | Pittsburgh may have two RBs in backfield

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:55:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he believes there will be times that he and RB DeAngelo Williams will be on the field at the same time. "There are definitely going to be packages where me and 'D-Lo' are going to be out there at the same time," Bell said. "I'm ready for that."

Fantasy Tip: Bell will receive most of the work at running back in 2016 but Williams should see decent playing time because of his solid play last season. Bell probably would be more of a receiver if both are on the field at the game time, which would help his fantasy value. Bell should be selected in the first round, while Williams could be a middle- to late-round option in drafts.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell on track for camp

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 17:52:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he is on schedule to be ready for training camp and that his leg is stronger than ever before.

Fantasy Tip: Unless he suffers an unexpected setback, Bell should be ready to go for Week 1. He carries some injury concerns, but he should still be one of the first running backs selected in all formats.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hints at contract demands

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:19:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell released a rap song in which he references needing "15 a year" and refers to himself as the top back in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: A big 2016 season would go a long way to helping Bell land a lucrative contract, and he should be one of the first backs off the board in all formats.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey to be involved?

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:43:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey could remain high on the Steelers' depth chart this season, mainly due to his speed. Heyward-Bey has reached up to 25 miles per hour while running this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey is pretty fast and all, but his fantasy value remains minimal, although Martavis Bryant's suspension does increase it somewhat. He should only be drafted as a deep flier in 2016.

Steelers | Bud Dupree may see more time

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:27:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Bud Dupree could receive more playing time at outside linebacker in the 2016 if the team is not confident in their pass coverage, in the opinion of NFL.com's Conor Orr. Dupree is competing with LB Arthur Moats for playing time and is a better pass rusher, while Moats is better against the run.
