Fantasy Impact: As hoped for, the Steelers were being extremely cautious with Bell and ensured the hammy felt fine before allowing him to practice again. Bell is currently being drafted as the 10th RB and 17th player off the board.

Fantasy Impact: Bell left practice early Sunday due to a "tightened hamstring." He missed practice Monday and had an off day on Tuesday. For him to miss practice again Wednesday would normally start to raise the danger flag. Because we are still very early in training camp, this situation bears watching through the preseason. Hamstrings do have a tendency to linger and perhaps this is why the Steelers are taking their time in bringing Bell back. Continue to draft Bell as a late first round/early second round pick.

Starting running back Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) didn't practice. Bell is "day-to-day," Tomlin said, after experiencing hamstring tightness on Sunday. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It is still too early to worry. When the tightness occurred Sunday, Bell was seen walking off the field under his own power and with no visible limp. The Steelers have an off day tomorrow (Jul 29).

Following up an earlier story, Ed Bouchette reports, "Steelers LeVeon Bell has hamstring. Why left practice. "Tightened" Mike Tomlin said." (Source: Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A "tightened" hamstring is not a reason for alarm. Had he "pulled" it or "stretched" it, then there may be a little more reason to be fearful. His removal from practice today does seem to be precautionary in nature and should continue to be drafted early in all formats.

Ed Bouchette, a reporter with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, reports via Twitter, "LeVeon Bell leaves practice field with trainer. Walking fine but something is up." (Source: Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It appears as though Bell was able to walk off the field under his own power. Keep your eyes and ears open for updates, but he probably left the field as a precautionary measure.

Two-headed running back attacks: Pittsburgh’s rushing game was tied for 27th in the league after averaging just 86.4 yards per game in 2013. With that in mind, the Steelers upgraded their 2013 backups – Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman, Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling – with the addition of the 250-pound Blount, who had 772 yards rushing on 153 carries last season for New England.

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers feel the addition of Blount and the speedy Archer will give them more flexibility to go along with starter Le’Veon Bell, who set a team rookie record with 1,259 total yards from scrimmage in 2013. How the carries are divided between the three and who serves what roles remains to be seen. Bell is currently being drafted as the 10th RB and 16th player overall in mock drafts. Training camp starts today and it will be interesting to see how much of an impact the addition of Blount has on Bell's carries. For now, temper expectations for Bell as Blount will more than likely be used to vulture goal line opportunities and TDs.

Pittsburgh did bring in some help but Bell is a workhorse with some nice versatility. He'll threaten for a top-10 spot.

Bell showed flashes of being a great three-down back last season, if he can build on that and the entire Steeler offense can grow this season, he should be in the top ten without a doubt.

He missed three games last year and his combined stats for the remainder of the season were outstanding. He has huge upside and is a favorite RB selection for 2014.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jul 15th
Bell showed a lot of promise in his rookie season with 1,259 yards from scrimmage and eight total touchdowns. I look for him to stay healthy this season and have a strong second year. He may lose a few goal line carries to RB LeGarrette Blount, who signed there as a free agent.
