Le'Veon Bell piles up 191 yards from scrimmage in big win

Le'Veon Bell took 32 totes for 179 yards and a 3-yard score while snagging three of six targets for 12 yards during Pittsburgh's 19-13 upset win over the previously undefeated Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Bell was absolutely unstoppable from start to finish in this one, as the All-Pro sprinkled gains of 14,10, 13, 17, 15, 12 and 27 on the previously-undefeated Chiefs throughout the game. Bell has now scored and topped 180 yards from scrimmage in two of his last three games and currently leads the league in carries, with 134 carries on the campaign. I think it's safe to say that Bell has kicked off the last of the rust and is now back in high gear. Pittsburgh's success runs through 26.

Le'Veon Bell manages 93 yards in tough day for Steelers offense

Le'Veon Bell took 15 totes for 47 yards and caught all ten of his targets for another 46 yards through the air in Pittsburgh's 30-9 Week 5 loss to the Jags.

Fantasy Impact

Bell took a little step back this week after exploding in Week 4, but he still racked up 93 yards on the day nonetheless. Ben Roethlisberger and the air attack's rough game didn't exactly open holes for Bell either. On a positive note, Bell had 10 receptions, so if you had the former Spartan in a PPR league you must be laughing your way to the bank right now. Next up for Bell and the Steelers is a meeting with the undefeated Chiefs, where Bell will try to out-duel the hottest back in football, Kareem Hunt.

Le'Veon Bell explodes for 186 scrimmage yards in Week 4

Le'Veon Bell was force-fed the ball against the Ravens on Sunday as he took 35 carries for 144 yards while finding pay-dirt twice during Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over the Ravens. Bell also tied for the team-high in receptions on the day, snagging four balls for 42 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Impact

It was only a matter of time before Todd Haley unleashed the beast. Bell was given the ball early and often as his workload, 35 carries, was the second-heaviest he's ever shouldered during his NFL career. No matter. The Steelers went to Bell nine times during their opening 14-play drive as well as handing him the rock on six of seven plays during their final touchdown drive. The two touchdowns were a nice exclamation point for Bell's 2017 breakout, but they won't come every week. However, you can count on his yardage totals being similar to this most weeks.

Le'Veon Bell scores his first touchdown of the season in OT loss

Le'Veon Bell continued his slow start to the season, carrying the ball just 15 times for 61 yards while grabbing six of his seven targets for another 37 yards through the air. Bell also found pay-dirt for the first time this season on a 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-17 loss to the lowly Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Bell has yet to break out in 2017, as his longest pickup is still only 15 yards and he still hasn't reached 100 scrimmage yards in a game yet, topping out at 98 this week. Thankfully, Bell finally scored a touchdown which made his line a little more impressive in Week 3. It's only a matter of time before Bell explodes, so don't go selling him low if you drafted him number 1 overall, he's still the best back in the league.

Le'Veon Bell continues rough start to 2017 in Week 2

Le'Veon Bell took 27 carries for 87 yards while snagging four receptions for another four yards in Pittsburgh's 26-9 home opening victory against Minnesota on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Bell was unable once again to find the end zone and struggled to really get into any kind of groove for the second straight week, as he averaged just 3.2 yards per tote against Minnesota's stout defense. There's no doubt he's still top dog in Pittsburgh however, as he out-touched all other backs combined 31-2 on Sunday. Pittsburgh's offensive line is one of the best in the game so it's really just a matter of time before Bell explodes for a huge game. Don't even think about benching him.
