Le'Veon Bell injury update: RB probable, will play for fantasy owners

The Steelers running back has gotten over his concussion and will play in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins. Bell suffered a concussion from a brutal hit on Thanksgiving but has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will suit up.

Fantasy Impact: Bell will be good to go and will continue to be Pittsburgh's feature back. He has proven to be a true three-down back as he caught 7 passes for 63 yards last week and has been good for a few catches in every other game. Bell had his second rushing touchdown of the game taken away last week because of the new rule that states that the play is automatically blown dead the second that a player's helmet comes off. He lost his helmet right before falling into the end zone on the aforementioned brutal hit. He has five touchdowns and 33 catches on the year.

Bell will take on a Dolphins run defense that has struggled to limit opponents' rushing games all season long. Playing against a low-scoring team as the feature back, there's a lot to like about Bell's situation this week. Bell is a borderline RB1 play and should be in starting lineups.
