Fantasy Impact: Bell will no doubt be the RB1 on the Steelers. Blount will get all short yardage and goal line looks. Another back who gained notoriety doing this was Jerome "Bus" Bettis.

Blount had stretches of brilliance, but he is still fumble prone and inconsistent. He is a great handcuff for owners of RB Le'Veon Bell and could vulture some touchdowns in the Steelers offense.
