Le'Veon Bell rushed for 47 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in the Steelers' 27-20, Week 15 win over the Falcons, adding five catches for 72 yards.
In a game Bell didn't find much running room, he still produced like the elite RB1 he's shown he is this season. Bell scored from one yard away just before halftime after a nifty toe-tapping catch on the sideline by Antonio Brown. Bell then found the end zone again in the fourth quarter from 13 yards out on a counter play to the left. Bell gets the Chiefs at home in fantasy title week next Sunday. Dec 14 - 3:58 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 26 times for 185 yards with two touchdowns and caught six passes for 50 yards with another touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 Week 14 win at Cincinnati.

Bell is quickly closing the gap on DeMarco Murray for title of best running back in the league. Showing incredible power, patience, elusiveness and speed, he humiliated the Bengals and came up one inch short of a fourth touchdown. Over the last three weeks (since LeGarrette Blount's release), Bell has recorded 35, 29 and 32 touches with five touchdowns and 711 total yards. He'll be the No. 1 overall fantasy play at running back in Week 15 at Atlanta.

Coach Mike Tomlin said he's not concerned with overworking Le'Veon Bell.

The Steelers had to cut a disgruntled and disruptive LeGarrette Blount earlier this month, leaving them with no viable backup to Bell. Fantasy owners have been thrilled with the results. In the last two games, Bell is averaging a whopping 32.0 touches for 238.0 total yards with two touchdowns. The Steelers are going to keep feeding the beast at Cincy in Week 14.
Dec 2 - 12:24 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed for 95 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries in the Steelers' 35-32, Week 13 loss to the Saints.

He added eight catches for 159 yards, with 70-plus of them coming on three final-drive garbage-time catches. Bell handled all of the backfield work for the second straight week. Our only complaint is that the Steelers didn't give it to him enough. Bell punched in his touchdown from one yard away following an Antonio Brown catch in the third quarter. Bell is the RB1 overall and will be an elite play against the Bengals on the road in Week 14.

When asked about Le'Veon Bell's workload going forward, OC Todd Haley said, "we will take all he can give."

The release of LeGarrette Blount leaves the Steelers desperately thin at running back behind Bell, who is coming off a 35-touch game. They're going to continue to ride the 22-year-old into the ground in all situations, including short-yardage and third-downs. "This is what I train for," Bell said. "I was training in the summer to get the ball as many times as I need to. I didn't feel fatigued in the (Titans) game." Don't be surprised if Bell pushes for another 30 touches when the Steelers come out of their bye against the Saints in Week 13.
Nov 20 - 8:38 AM

Le'Veon Bell rushed for 204 yards and one touchdown on 33 carries in the Steelers' 27-24, Week 11 win over the Titans on Monday night.

He added two catches for 18 yards. After rushing for a combined 56 yards on 21 carries the previous two games, Bell busted back out in a big way. The Titans seemed sold on pressuring Big Ben, leaving gaping holes for Bell to run through. He picked up chunk gain after chunk gain, gliding past defenders. Bell's running style is amazing to watch. He simply glides and offers sudden, yet subtle jukes. Bell eventually found the end zone from five yards out in the fourth quarter. It was his first rushing score since Week 1. He's a locked-in RB1 with a soft schedule down the stretch. The Steelers have a bye before hosting New Orleans. Bell is going to be on a number of fantasy championship squads.
Nov 17 - 11:18 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 11 times for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Jets.

Predictably finding no room to run against the Jets' elite front, Bell salvaged his day with eight catches for 33 yards. He now has 55 catches on the season, setting a franchise record for RB receptions in a season despite only having played nine games so far. Bell, who was pulled in favor of LeGarrette Blount for unsuccessful goal-line work, will find softer sledding as a strong RB1 against the Titans in Week 11.
Nov 9 - 4:54 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 10 times for 20 yards in Sunday night's Week 9 win over the Ravens.

Bell couldn't get anything going in the run game, but managed to find the end-zone on a five-yard pass in the second quarter. He lost some red-zone and short-yardage work to LeGarrette Blount, who also finished with 10 carries. It was the first game Bell has been held under 100 total yards this season. Bell will remain a high-end RB1 despite a difficult matchup against the Jets in Week 10.
Nov 3 - 12:45 AM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 24 times for 92 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 8 win over the Colts, adding six catches for an additional 56 yards.

Bell has now eased by 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first eight games this season. The only complaint was that he somehow got held out of the end zone on a day where Pittsburgh scored six touchdowns. Bell also gave owners a huge scare in the first half when he tweaked the right foot/ankle that sidelined him in 2013, but he got it re-taped and checked back in for workhorse duties. With half the season now in the books, the breakout second-year pro is on pace for 2,172 yards from scrimmage, and four touchdowns. The former total may fade a bit, while the latter should only increase. Bell is averaging 4.90 yards per carry.
Oct 26 - 8:12 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed for 57 yards on 12 carries in the Steelers' 30-23, Week 7 win over the Texans on Monday night, adding eight catches for 88 yards and one touchdown.

Bell didn't see nearly enough work as a runner, with OC Todd Haley opting to give nine carries to LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer. But Bell more than made up for it in the pass game. His big gain was a 43-yard catch-and-run on a third down in the first half when he ran right past ILB Brian Cushing, who appears to be a shell of his former self after season-ending injuries. Bell was then left wide open right before the half for a two-yard touchdown grab. It was his first score since Week 1. A legit RB1, Bell and the Steelers host the Colts next week.
Oct 20 - 11:39 PM

Le'Veon Bell's attorney waived his client's right to a preliminary hearing on Bell's marijuana and DUI charges, and hopes to enter a first-offender's program to have the charges dismissed.

Per the Associated Press, Bell will "likely" face a two-game suspension once the criminal case wraps up, "probably early next year." Due to a convenient "scheduling conflict," Bell's preliminary hearing now won't take place until December 10. It sounds like the case won't be closed until January or February at soonest. Bell is not expected to face any league discipline this year.
Oct 16 - 11:27 AM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 18 times for 82 yards in the Steelers' Week 6 loss to the Browns, adding four catches for 23 yards.

The 100-yard effort was Bell's sixth in six games, and gives him 793 yards from scrimmage. Foolishly, Bell lost a goal-line carry to LeGarrette Blount, who proceeded to gain his usual one yard on a 3rd-and-3 from the Browns' three-yard line. The Steelers settled for a field goal. Rather amazingly, Bell hasn't scored since Week 1, but his touchdown rate should start catching up to his yardage in the very near future.
Oct 12 - 5:39 PM

Ben Roethlisberger took some of the blame for Le'Veon Bell's meager 15 carries in Week 5.

Roethlisberger audibled to pass plays a lot against the Jaguars -- especially in the red zone. "That's me calling plays, feeling like we have the advantage in the pass game down there, so I called passes," Big Ben said. "And I don't regret any of it." Expect Bell to get fed a much heavier workload this week against a Browns defense that is ranked 29th against the run.
Oct 9 - 10:37 AM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 15 times for 82 yards in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Jaguars, adding five catches for an additional 36 yards.

Bell has now managed at least 107 yards from scrimmage in all five games this season, and posted a YPC of 5.2 or greater in four out of five contests. The Steelers could have afforded to get him the ball more this afternoon, but he's still yet to manage fewer than 16 touches, and has cleared 20 four times. The Browns are not an imposing matchup for Week 6.
Oct 5 - 4:51 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 19 times for 63 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 4 loss to the Bucs, adding six catches for 46 yards.

Bell just can't stop racking up yards, and is now on pace for 1,512 on the ground, and 768 through the air. That projects to 2,280 yards from scrimmage, which would be 12th all time. Bell is averaging 5.25 yards per carry, and 4.75 catches per game. He's a real threat to finish as fantasy's No. 1 overall player. He has a mouthwatering Week 5 matchup with the Jaguars.
