Le'Veon Bell (foot) was a full participant at practice on Wednesday. He has been injured with a sprained foot all year and has yet to debut as a pro in the regular season.
Bell went down in the preseason with an injury and there has been all sorts of reports on when he could return. Now that he's put in a full practice, it' safe to assume that he'll be in the lineup against the Vikings.
The Steelers have been a joke in running the football, ranking 31st with a paltry 155 yards in three games. Just for fun, their in-state NFL mate Philadelphia Eagles are averaging 209 yards per game. Bell adds some much-needed life on the ground.
Fantasy impact: The easy analysis is that Bell has to be owned in every single league. The team can't get anything going on the ground and it's cost Ben Roethlisberger a few bumps and bruises. Opponents have been pinning their ears back with blitzes and pass rushes since the Steelers can't move the ball on the ground. Bell can be viewed as a low-end RB2 in a favorable matchup. Jonathan Dwyer is likely nothing more than a handcuff and can be cut for a hot free agent in standard leagues.
