Le'Veon Bell 'has his eye on' the Colts in free agency

Le'Veon Bell "has his eye on" the Colts as he prepares for free agency.

Fantasy Impact

Bell is said to be interested in the significant cap space the Colts have as well as the opportunity to play with QB Andrew Luck. There are sure to be many rumors this offseason leading up to Bell's signing, but the would certainly be a great situation for the former RB1.

Le'Veon Bell does not report; ineligible to play in 2018

Le'Veon Bell did not report to the Steelers by the 4:00 p.m. deadline on Tuesday and is ineligible to play in 2018.

Fantasy Impact

At this point, this was the expected result, but it's still incredible to think about how much money Bell sacrificed this year with his holdout. James Conner will continue to be a strong RB1 this year and should have plenty of value as the Steelers' bell-cow back in future seasons. As for Bell, he'll land somewhere else in 2019, where he'll surely be a strong fantasy option.

Le’Veon Bell unlikely to report by Tuesday

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Le’Veon Bell is unlikely to report by Tuesday’s deadline.

Fantasy Impact

If Bell doesn’t report by Tuesday he will be ineligible to play for the remainder of the season. This would make James Conner an RB1 for the rest of 2018, and it would mean Bell can be dropped in re-draft leagues. Hang on to him until Tuesday, however. Just to be sure. It’s unclear if Bell intends to play in 2019, but his options might be limited.

Le'Veon Bell wanted by Steelers 'very badly'

Le'Veon Bell is reportedly in Pittsburgh ahead of the team's Week 10 contest against the Panthers. The Steelers reportedly want him back "very badly."

Fantasy Impact

Bell has until Tuesday to sign his tender or he will be unable to return this season. While this has been known, and he indicated he left Miami where he was working out earlier this week, the notion that the Steelers want Bell to return badly is a new bit of info. It would certainly benefit the team in theory to have the talented Bell on the roster, but James Conner has shown that he has been able to fill the void left by the All-Pro admirably. While a Bell return could help Pittsburgh overall, it would certainly make his value as well as Conner's murky moving forward. Two backs could co-exist in the high-upside Pittsburgh offense, but they would each cap the other's value if they were truly splitting carries and not using the bell-cow role Steelers' backs have become accustomed to.

Le'Veon Bell has yet to make contact with Steelers

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Steelers Le'Veon Bell has yet to make contact with the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Although Bell tweeted "farewell Miami" earlier in the day, leading the NFL media and fanbase to believe that he will return to the Steelers soon, the team has yet to make contact with their holdout rusher. With a short week ahead -- the Steelers will host the Panthers on Thursday night -- the team told the press that their main focus is on their TNF matchup with the red-hot Panthers. Bell has until November 13 to report, otherwise, he will forfeit the 2018 season and then be a candidate for the transition tag this offseason. The saga continues.
