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.

NEWS: Lance Moore stood out as much as any player during off-season?

According to ESPN, Steelers WR Lance Moore “stood out as much as any player during offseason practices.”

SMITTY: A lot of defensive attention is going to be pushed in the direction of Antonio Brown this season, which should provide a lot of decent opportunities for those other Steelers’ receivers (as well as the rushing attack). Will Lance Moore be the team’s second-best fantasy receiver? Or, will it be one of Markus Wheaton or the ultra-talented rookie Martavis Bryant? At this point, it really is tough to say, but Ben Roethlisberger should have an underrated fantasy season in 2014. The top fantasy option on the roster entering 2014 is Le’Veon Bell, who could be in for a top 10RB season in 2014.
