2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
A lost season bookended by a suspension and a devastating knee injury leave this former fantasy darling in an interesting place. While his talent and dual threat role in a high powered offense gave fantasy owners visions of Marshall Faulk, Bell could certainly be the latest poster child for the fragility of running backs in the NFL. Injuries, especially to knees, can turn all-pros into also-rans in short order. Bellís game is predicated on patience and quick twitch speed and agility, and should he lose any measure of quickness or power he could quickly become a fantasy cast-off.

All reports of his recovery have been positive, as earlier this spring he tweeted a video of himself dunking a basketball in explosive fashion. And while dunking a basketball is a far cry from outracing linebackers, or pushing a 600 pound pile of grown men, Bellís rehab seems to be right on track. Bell employed some high tech medical therapy (blood flow restriction therapy) in order to enhance the rehab of his knee injury. A therapy originally used to treat injured war veterans, Bell seems to be enjoying a successful return from his torn MCL. He participated in individual drills during OTAs, and coaches and teammates continue to expect Bell to be as good as new come Week 1.

With the dearth of difference making dual threat running backs in the NFL, Bell is certainly worth the risk in the 1st round of fantasy drafts. DeAngelo Williams is sure to siphon some work away from Bell in an effort to keep him fresh, but I havenít seen anything that tells me it will be enough to drop Bell from the top 5 at his position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Le'Veon Bell back in the saddle as No.1 RB
Steelers RB coming off suspension
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 27, 2:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Mike Tomlin on return and workload of Le'V Bell: "Rest assured, you're going to see LeíVeon Bell and a lot of him Sunday." (Gerry Duclac on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It was fun while it lasted DeAngelo owners. It seems Tomlin will have no issues plugging Bell into a workhorse role Sunday night against the Chiefs. He's an RB1 with DeAngelo Williams returning to a pure handcuff role.


Le'Veon Bell's suspension reduced to 3 games
Eligible to return Week 4 against KC

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers' RB Le'Veon Bell is having his suspension reduced from 4 to 3 games, sources told ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bell reportedly missed multiple drug tests so he should count his lucky stars the suspension was reduced at all. Bell will now be eligible to return Week 4 against the Chiefs. This does little to affect Bell's value in redraft leagues where's being drafted in early in Round 2.


Le'Veon Bell facing 4-game suspension
Appeals process on-going
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 22, 10:22 am

Pittburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano. The suspension is the result of a missed drug test, not a failed one, sources said. The reason it hasn't been announced is that the appeal process is ongoing. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Bell was suspended two games last season after being charged with marijuana possession and DUI. If he misses the start of 2016, DeAngelo Williams will likely serve a workhorse roll as he did last season when Bell was suspended an injured. Bell's ADP is going to take a hit, however, when facing a two-game suspension prior to the start of 2015 Bell was being drafted 2nd overall behind Adrian Peterson. Expect him to fall further this time around but still be a late-first, early-second round pick.
