Bell missed the first preseason game with a knee injury, although it was never considered serious and the Steelers simply kept him out as a precautionary move. He returned to practice this week and has had no apparent setbacks. He remains in line to win the starting job over Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer.
Fantasy impact: Sounds like it was a non-issue all along. The Steelers are all but handing the keys to the second-round pick out of Michigan State after an underwhelming committee with Redman and Dwyer last season.
Bell has the talent to play all three downs and has a chance to make the most fantasy impact among rookie running backs this season. He's a fairly safe pick as an RB2 this season with solid Dynasty upside.
