2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Le’Veon Bell A Calculated Risk Worth Taking
Name: Le’Veon Bell
Team: Pittsburgh Steelers
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: 1
Draft stock: (Rising) Bell is the surefire starting running back for the Steelers this year, so the folks in Pittsburgh are already talking him up. Due to the Steelers’ commitment to running the ball, Bell is seen by many as a breakout candidate and a possible Offensive Rookie of the Year winner in 2013.
2012 fantasy impact: Although Bell didn’t play any NFL downs in 2012, he earned the “workhorse” reputation while with the Michigan State Spartans. Upon shedding tackle after tackle, Bell even carried the ball 50 times in one game! Many are hoping that he didn’t waste all of his production at the collegiate level.
Best-case scenario: The Steelers devote themselves to the run and Bell becomes everything that they’d hoped Rashard Mendenhall would be. Bell is a bruising back, who get’s first dibs on goal line as well.
Worst-case scenario: Bell’s college workload hinders his professional production. Steelers are average at best and can’t afford to establish a running game most weeks.
Where you should draft him: Be careful here — Bell can be a difference maker, but don’t treat him like a sure thing just yet. The fourth round is a good place to take a risk on Bell.
