Summary

With Le'Veon Bell suspended the first three weeks of the 2015 season, the Steelers will be leaning on veteran DeAngelo Williams. Last year, Williams struggled to stay healthy and put up the worst numbers in his nine-year pro career. The Steelers picked him up after the Panthers cut him earlier this year with the idea that he'll provide valuable veteran depth. Williams isn't the same player he used to be, but he should be able to be a solid starter for the Steelers while Bell is out. During those first three weeks, the Steelers should rely less on the rushing attack and more on Ben Roethlisberger and the passing game. (May 17)
