  Steelers | LeGarrette Blount unlikely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 09:30 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 09:27 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

Footballguys view: It's another waiting game for the league to act in response to Bell's arrest. Judging by their pace as of late, it could be well into next year before the outcome of Bell's status with the league is known.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play    Tue Aug 26, 06:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play in the team's final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Starters normally don't play in the final preseason game, perhaps indicating this could be part of the punishment the two face for being charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Bell and Blount are still awaiting a decision on possible suspensions.

Footballguys view: It's an odd "punishment", but the bottom line here is that the duo is unlikely to miss any games by the hand of the Steelers, and the league office probably won't act until the legal case reaches its outcome.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell status    Mon Aug 25, 03:41 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face a suspension from the team, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Bell and Blount were recently charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

Footballguys view: The league will wait until the legal process is exhausted before suspended either player. The team could cut to the chase if they wanted in an effort to shorten (or eliminate) any league punishment. Any league suspension may not happen until next season.

  Steelers | Heath Miller shines    Fri Aug 22, 12:36 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller had a team-high five catches for 53 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown reception, in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: That's what Miller does. The team is turning over control of the offense to QB Ben Roethlisberger. According to Steelers insiders, the no-huddle offense is here to stay with Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger's favorite target not named Antonio Brown is Miller. His current ADP is TE16 (13.06) in 12-team PPR leagues. Add Miller as a TE2 for your fantasy squad, and use him as a spot starter in good matchups.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell starts    Thu Aug 21, 07:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell started against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night as he waits for a possible suspension after being charged for driving under the influence and marijuana possession.

Footballguys view: We are unlikely to see any penalty this season, so Bell is going to hold the same value he had prior to this incident so he is still a solid RB2.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell travels for game    Thu Aug 21, 11:07 AM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell traveled on his own for the team's third preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Bell did not travel on the team charter after he was arrested for driving under the influence and marijuana possession Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to hear what he does while there. Will the team allow him to participate in meetings? Will he be at the game and if so, in what capacity? As we have mentioned previously, the Steelers aren't the type of team to deal with off-field nonsense lightly and so what Bell does or how he is received could tell us a bit about any discipline the team may hand down. We don't know if there will be a league-mandated discipline, but the Steelers tend to get out in front of things. Bell is still tracking as an RB2, but we might see that slowly drop as owners get nervous.

  Steelers | LeGarrette Blount may see ban    Thu Aug 21, 11:02 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount could face a one-game suspension for his arrest stemming from a marijuana possession charge. However, the suspension may not be rendered anytime soon.

Footballguys view: The league likes to wait until the legal system plays out, and given how long the Josh Gordon thing has gone on, we have no real idea when they'd announce something anyway. If they aren't in a hurry for Gordon, they won't be in a hurry to discipline Blount or his partner in crime Le'Veon Bell. Blount has gone undrafted in many leagues anyway, so his suspension will make little ripples, if any.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may face ban    Thu Aug 21, 11:00 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could face a one-game suspension for his arrest stemming from DUI and marijuana possession charges. However, the suspension may not be rendered anytime soon.

Footballguys view: With Josh Gordon still waiting a decision, we've seen the league drag its feet anyway. Further, the NFL has a history of waiting until the legal process plays out. On the other hand, the Steelers don't like their players in the headlines for off-field issues and sometimes get out in front of the league. So we're up in the air about when or if something will happen. Bell is currently an RB2, but his ADP has dropped a little as owners get nervous. He might keep dropping in which case he would become a bargain--albeit one with some risk to him.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in hot water    Wed Aug 20, 07:39 PM

Pittsburgh Pirates RB Le'Veon Bell and RB LeGarrette Blount were charged by Ross Township Police Wednesday, Aug. 20, with marijuana possession. Bell was also charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after the traffic stop Wednesday.

Footballguys view: It's too early to say whether Bell or Blount will face league discipline this year, and who knows how the Steelers will handle this in-house. It certainly does not enhance their standing, and the timing of this is going to really frustrate the Steelers, who generally do not tolerate much in the way of character issues.

  Steelers | Marcus Gilbert update    Tue Aug 19, 05:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers OT Marcus Gilbert signed a five-year extension worth $30 million.

Footballguys view: Gilbert is a bargain tackle, but you get what you pay for. Still, teams do better re-investing in their own talent than they do buying free agents because they have more accurate evaluations of the talent on their own roster. The Steelers offense and Ben Roethlisberger have been viable with weak lines in the past, including Gilbert, but he's better than Mike Adams.

  Steelers | Ryan Shazier active in preseason game    Mon Aug 18, 09:43 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier had 11 tackles and an interception in less than two quarters of playing time in the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: The talk of Steelers camp has been Shazier. He can fly across the football field, and he arrives at the play with natural violence. The Steelers have missed on some defensive picks in recent years, but Shazier looks like a stud.

  Steelers | Tauren Poole has chance to make roster    Sat Aug 16, 11:56 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Tauren Poole appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 4 running back job if the team decides to keep four running backs on their final roster. Poole will have to show he can contribute on special teams if he wants to make the roster.

Footballguys view: We like Poole in super deep dynasty leagues. He's a good all-purpose runner with good instincts for running the football. Poole is not the biggest back, but he is determined between the tackles. He's not the fastest back either, but he wastes little motion and has enough speed to get to the edge at the pro level.
