Fantasy Football Outlook: The Steelers struggled to settle on one running back last season in part because of performance and also because of injuries. Enter 2nd round pick Le’Veon Bell to be the new bell cow back, and if you look at his college numbers durability didn’t seem to be a problem.

This was important to Pittsburgh as they passed on Eddie Lacy because of his health concerns, and it worked out well for Bell. Last season Doug Martin, Trent Richardson and Alfred Morris all landed feature back jobs and were terrific.

That’s not the norm and this year we may only see one rookie running back get that workload from week one on and it would be Bell. Obviously we need to keep an eye on Bell in training camp to see if he’s running with the first time and if he has any nagging injuries.

It doesn’t take much before we see another running back earn his way into the starting role to begin the season, but we should expect Bell to take over at some point during the season. Bell isn’t an explosive player but he appears to have enough skill to hold onto a feature back role.

He has some skill in the passing game and I like that for a big guy. Don’t expect him to be a top ten running back in receptions in any given season, but he could give us about 25 catches a year.

As long as Bell remains on track to win the starting job, I have no problem with his ADP going as an early 4th round pick in 12-team leagues. Just make sure you monitor his situation through training camp.
