Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell was a full participant in Wednesday’s team practice, just six days after sustaining a concussion. Barring any setbacks this week, Bell should be started in fantasy leagues across the board.
Le’Veon Bell has made a miraculous recovery and is ready to power through a weak Miami Dolphins rush defense. Miami has allowed 121.8 rushing yards per game, ranking them 25th in the league. In addition to the favorable match-up, Bell is coming off one of his best games of the season.
Bell can comfortably be used as a mid-level RB1 in standard fantasy formats, as he has breakout potential this week.
In the Steelers Week 13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Bell was virtually unstoppable. He rushed 16 times for 73 yards and a touchdown (would have been two touchdowns if not for his helmet coming off), as well as coming down with 7 catches for 63 yards.
He should be a full participant in Sunday’s contest with the Miami Dolphins, but continue to monitor Bell’s health as Week 14 approaches.
