2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

SECOND-YEAR STAR: Former Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell is a workhorse who will be asked to carry the majority of the workload in Pittsburgh. Bell was hindered early last year with a foot injury. Regardless of that, he proved to be durable over his college career. The Steelers historically love this type of back and have been searching for him since the departure of Rashard Mendenhall. Bell is coveted RB1 and will be drafted and started in all formats. Don't be surprised if he is a Top 5 back in 2014 due to his strengths both on the ground and via the pass. This every-down potential buoys his fantasy value and ensures he is a safe choice in the back half of the first or early in the second round.

Editor's note: The signing of and presence of Blount is a reasonable concern, especially after the former Oregon Ducks runner went nuts last postseason by rushing for 166 yards and four TDs against the Colts. A better way to look at it is that Pittsburgh needed to protect their investment in Bell. Blount can immediately come in, absorb about five to eight carries per game and give Bell a breather. Without Blount, the backfield's depth chart would be a whole lot more flimsy.

3.10 FootballDiehards - The Steelers slipped from 11th and 14th in the league in rushing the two previous seasons to 26th in 2012. The team is dead set on changing that. Enter Bell, who is in line to be a three-down weapon. I expect big things based on opportunity alone. Worthy of RB2 status for me.
