Le'Veon Bell active for fantasy owners in Week 14

The Steelers rookie running back suffered a nasty hit on Thanksgiving. We break down the fantasy implications.

Le'Veon Bell appeared to be in jeopardy of missing time when he suffered a concussion on Thanksgiving. Those fears are officially gone, though, as the Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back is active for Week 14.

Bell faces a Miami Dolphins defense that presents a great matchup. The Dolphins rank No. 25 in the league in run defense, giving up 121.8 yards per game.

Fantasy impact: It's hard to believe Bell didn't miss any time. The hit he took from Jimmy Smith in Week 13 was one of the nastier shots we've seen this season. Bell passed his tests this week and managed to get back to practice, which is fortunate for fantasy owners.

After seeing Bell's stat line his last game, owners should be excited to see him in action again. The Dolphins have allowed 10 touchdowns to running backs in 2013. Bell adds value with his impact in the passing game as well, so he needs to be in your starting lineup for every league.
