The start to the season hasn't been promising for Bell, though he has increased his fantasy output in three straight games. Think about this for a second - with how mediocre the Steelers offense and Bell have been, had he scored just one more touchdown, he's be a top-10 running back. That just goes to show where his floor is in fantasy. Coming off three seasons in which he's averaged at least 4.7 yards per carry and totaled 23 touchdowns in 34 games, Bell deserves some leeway. Some may scoff and say, "pssh, Bell a buy low," but the definition of buying low is getting them cheaper than they were on draft day, just a few weeks ago. I'm positive that's the case, so go out there and get the No. 1 running back.

Don't sweat sluggish start - only last year, Bell was TD-less & just 14th in FAN PPG at RB thru his 1st 5 games before catching holy fire

"Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report back to team before regular season kicks off, though it remains unclear exactly when." Bell values himself at about $15mm per year, your move Rooney. https://twitter.com/pyro_hartbeat/status/898624591072862208 https://twitter.com/pyro_hartbeat/status/898232466686697472 There is no doubt Bell is the RB1 when he is active, this hold-out makes me nervous. He might be staying in shape, but there is no way to really simulate game-speed without actually participating with the team. He missed 3 games last year and came in shredding defenses, but that is much different than missing camp completely.

Had Le'Veon been active for all 16 games, his pace would have put him at over 2,500 all purpose yards. Don't buy too much into the fact that he has several injuries, as all running backs inevitably will. Rather, consider that if he remains healthy, he will carry you to the playoffs.
