NEWS: LeVeon Bell and LeGarrette Blount to maybe see a one game suspensions, and not any time soon?

According to post-gazette.com, Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount “probably face no more than a one-game suspension and that won’t come anytime soon” for their recent marijuana possession arrests. Coach Mike Tomlin also reportedly plans to play both runners in Thursday’s preseason game against the Eagles.

SMITTY: Le’Veon Bell could actually see more league punishment depending on the results of the DUI that he was also charged with, but regardless, it appears that 2014 punishment is not very likely – for now. We will keep you updated! Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: LeVeon Bell and Legarrette Blount arrested for marijuana possession.

According to multiple reports, Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were arrested for possession of marijuana; Bell was also booked for DUI.

SMITTY: This is obviously bad news in Steelers country, and horrible for dynasty Le’Veon Bell owners; however, initial reports, most based on pure speculation at this point, suggest that both runners could avoid NFL disciplinary action this season. We will keep you posted on all of this, as more info will surely emerging in the coming days. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: LeVeon Bell workload concerns heading into Week 1?

Both Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount co-startered Saturday night’s preseason game, with Bell playing the first series and then Blount mixing into the entire first-half.

SMITTY: While I won’t say I’m locked into this thinking quite yet, but I’m a bit concerned about the Steelers commitment to giving Le’Veon Bell the ball. Will a healthy Bell lead the team in carries? Yeah, most likely, but early signs point to Legarrette Blount getting more than just goal line work — He might be used quite a bit in 2014. If you own Bell already in dynasty, don’t freakout and sell-low, but maybe test the trade waters and get yourself into a safer option if the price/deal is right. In redraft, I’d bump Bell down a bit on your list… not a ton, but he doesn’t feel like a super-safe fantasy RB1 right now, and he did just months ago. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Le’Veon Bell is well conditioned and had a great off-season.

According to NFL.com, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin had this to say on RB Le’Veon Bell: “Le’Veon Bell has had a great offseason,” Tomlin said on Friday’s edition of NFL Total Access. “He’s really shown that he is excited about taking the next step in terms of work that he’s done thus far, particularly from a conditioning standpoint.”

SMITTY: Le’Veon Bell currently has an ADP at 2.03-2.05, which is extremely reasonable given he has top 5-10RB upside. While LeGarrette Blount has kind of a TD vulture type presence in Pittsburgh right now, Bell owners shouldn’t worry, as Pittsburgh is going to give Bell more than enough carries in 2014. Anything that goes to Blount, aside from maybe a couple short-yardage touchdown runs, will be “spelling” type touches.
