Le'Veon Bell goes off for fantasy owners, leaves with injury

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Le'Veon Bell had a huge game on Thanksgiving before being involved in a nasty collision that forced him to exit the game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Le'Veon Bell put together one of his best games of the year on Thanksgiving. The rookie rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown one 16 carries and caught seven passes for 63 against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

Late in the fourth quarter, Bell collided with Jimmy Smith head-to-head at the goal line. Bell appeared to be unconscious at first, and he was taken to the locker room immediately following the play.

Fantasy impact: A questionable helmet rule robbed Bell of his second touchdown. He fell forward into the end zone after the hit from Smith, but since Bell's helmet came off, the refs ruled the play was dead at that point at the 1-yard line.

Bell almost certainly has a concussion, and his status will have to be monitored closely in the coming week. Fortunately he has extra time to prepare for Pittsburgh's next game with Miami on Dec. 8. Bell is teetering on the RB1 range with the was he played on Thanksgiving.
