Huddle Up: The two reportedly had 20 grams of marijuana on them. Bell and Blount could face a league suspension once the case is resolved but that may not be until after the 2014 season. We'll have to see what happens in the coming days but as of right now, Bell and Blount's fantasy value may not be affected this season.

Huddle Up: Bell ranked 12th in the league last season in logging 68.2 percent (244 carries) of the Steelers' rushing attempts -- and that was with the rookie missing 3 full games due to injury. Blount, meanwhile, carried the ball 153 times for the Pats, and then factor in the speedy rookie Archer, so don't be shocked if Bell's percentage of the workload takes a slight dip.

Huddle Up: The Steelers haven't finished in the league's top 10 in rushing attempts since 2010, and that, coincidentally or not, was the franchise's most recent season with a playoff win. It might not be an immediate return to the days of yore, but definitely, look for the Steelers to run more than they did a season ago when they finished 25th in rushing plays.

Huddle Up: Bell would also benefit from some upgrades to the personnel along Pittsburgh's line, as well as the return to health of Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey. And if he himself can stay healthy, Bell is looking at some serious fantasy production in 2014.

Huddle Up: Bell received a few extra recovery days with the the Steelers playing on Thanksgiving so definitely plan on having him available Week 14 at this point.

Huddle Up: This is a bit surprising given how badly he was knocked out, but it looks like he might be playing this week. Plan accordingly.

Huddle Up: Bell is coming off one of his best fantasy games (136 total yards, TD) of the season, but his fantasy owners are obviously in for a full week of monitoring status reports coming out of the Steel City.

Huddle Up: If Bell is officially diagnosed with a concussion, he'll need to clear the league-mandated protocols before returning to action. He'll have a couple extra days to do so due to the Thursday game, but Bell owners may need to look into Jonathan Dwyer and/or Felix Jones as insurance.

Huddle Up: Bell took a wicked shot, and the league's new helmet-off rule was applied on the replay, denying the rookie his second TD of the game. At least he'll have a few extra days to recover with the Steelers not playing until a week from Sunday.

Huddle Up: This was a nice debut for Bell, who saw a lot of action in his first game back from a foot injury. Perhaps Pittsburgh's woes at running back are over.
Posted: 9/27/2013 3:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Bell will likely start on Sunday against Minnesota and finally give the Steelers a legitimate running back option in their backfield. It's time for fantasy owners to get Bell in their lineups.

Huddle Up: We don't know if he will play this week, but Bell has been practicing for a little while now. It could happen any time, though the Steelers might ease him back into action with Felix Jones playing relatively well.
Posted: 9/24/2013 2:24pm ET
Huddle Up: The 0-3 Steelers need an infusion of something as no fewer than 22 players have rushed for as many or more yards than the Steelers' team total of 155 this season.
Posted: 9/22/2013 12:24am ET
Huddle Up: Bell got in some practice time this week but he won't suit up against the Bears. Look for him to possibly be back next week when the Steelers travel to Minnesota.
Posted: 9/19/2013 11:40pm ET
Huddle Up: It's a good sign that Bell is getting more work in but don't look for him to appear in any games for another couple weeks at best.
Posted: 9/19/2013 11:13am ET
Huddle Up: Bell's timetable has already been pushed back once; don't be surprised if it gets pushed back even further. In fact, with Maurkice Pouncey out for the season the Steelers may opt to sit their prize rookie as well.
Posted: 9/11/2013 12:11pm ET
Huddle Up: There it is, that nasty Lisfranc rearing her ugly head. Bell's extended time on the sidelines, coupled with the Steelers' loss of Maurkice Pouncey, are beginning to make this look like a lost season for the Pittsburgh rookie.
Posted: 9/3/2013 2:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Week 2 is optimistic, but it's good to see Bell progressing quickly. Any playing time before October would be considered a win for those who took a chance on Bell in recent weeks.
Posted: 9/2/2013 3:35pm ET
Huddle Up: This seems a bit optimistic, but Week 2 falls within the 4-6-week range initially given on the prognosis. The Steelers don't have much at running back, so getting Bell at an injury discount might pay off sooner than later.
Posted: 8/28/2013 12:09pm ET
Huddle Up: The Steelers are being awfully mum about this injury, but the initial prognosis was he would be out 6-8 weeks. That he is out of his walking boot already is a good sign. If he is out just six weeks from the time he was injured, he will be back by October, which means he will have missed just four games.
Posted: 8/27/2013 4:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Bell, obviously, has all the fantasy upside, but the rest of the backs should be drafted in that order: Redman, Dwyer and Stephens-Howling.
Posted: 8/22/2013 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: That's welcome change of news for fantasy owners of the rookie RB, but now the question is when exactly will he be ready to contribute. Stay tuned . . .
Posted: 8/21/2013 5:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer, come on down! It's hard to believe Bell will be back to full strength once he does recover from the dreaded Lisfranc injury. Neither has much upside, but they are decent late-round fliers in deep leagues.
Posted: 8/21/2013 4:06pm ET
Huddle Up: This would be a big blow to Bell and the Steelers, as it could keep him out for a long while. Monitor his situation over the next few days.
