Is Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell going to play Sunday? 'No.'

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is one of the league's best beat writers. He has covered the Steelers for the Post-Gazette for nearly 30 years, and I think his opinions on the team carry a little more weight than its other scribes. And Bouchette offered a very clear opinion when asked on Twitter Saturday if running back Le'Veon Bell will play Sunday night versus the Bears. Bouchette offered a pithy response: "No."
Bell has been recovering from a sprained foot since the preseason.

Fantasy Analysis:

However, considering that Bell practiced for most of the week, it seems like he has a decent chance of being active next week versus the Vikings. Isaac Redman @ired33, Felix Jones @felixjones28, and Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27 will all pitch in against the Bears' defense. Should you put any of them in your fantasy lineup? No.

He will play, and he will get many, many touches. Worthy of flex consideration imho.
