Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell had a productive day against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football in Week 15. Well, Bell struggled when it came to actually running the ball, but he was a solid contributor in the passing game, and ended up with solid statistics when it was all said and done.
Bell managed to put up 57 yards off of 24 carries, with a touchdown. He struggled against Cincinnati's defense, but moved the chains well enough to help Pittsburgh to a 30-20 victory on Sunday. Still, it made for a per-carry average of just 2.4 yards, but few will take issue with the rookie finding the end zone.
What Bell managed to do to make his day better: catch five passes for 50 yards. He was the second-leading receiver for the Steelers, behind the resurgent Antonio Brown. A combined total of over 100 yards and a score is something the team and fantasy owners should take any day.
Fantasy Impact: Bell has been solid this season when he's healthy. He should have a bright future ahead of him, and if you managed to snag him in dynasty leagues, then you might just benefit from that bright future. For now, he's producing enough to keep him near RB2 status week-in and week-out, though only one week remains.
