Le'Veon Bell still feature back over LeGarrette Blount
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even with the addition of running back LeGarrette Blount, the Steelers still plan to lean on Le'Veon Bell, reports ESPN.

The report says the Steelers "are committed to Le'Veon Bell as their feature back -- as they should be." He will continue to get the majority of the carries, but Blount does provide the Steelers much-needed insurance behind Bell.

Report: LeGarrette Blount not signed strictly as backup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Running back LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the Steelers merely as a backup to Le'Veon Bell, according to Steelers Depot. His role has yet to be defined, but Pittsburgh did not spend nearly $4 million over two years to sit him on the bench and play him only if Bell is injured.

Blount blossomed as a featured back at the end of the regular season and in the playoffs with New England in 2013.

Bell had close to 300 touches in just 13 games a year ago. The addition of Blount could limit him to fewer carries and make him less of an injury risk.

Steelers 'optimistic' they'll find backup RB
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

There's no secret that the Steelers are looking for a backup running back behind Le'Veon Bell. Last week they had ex-Jaguars rusher Maurice Jones-Drew in for a visit and former Patriots runner LeGarrette Blount will visit the team on Friday. 

"We're looking to add depth at that position, and a guy of that caliber, a been-there, done-that type of veteran, will be an asset for us," Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "We need to have depth in that area and we will in the not-too-distant future, whether it's in free agency or the draft."

Last year Bell had 244 of the team's 342 rushes (71 pct.) in the 13 games he played in. Currently the only backs behind Bell on the depth chart are Alvester Alexander, Miguel Maysonet and Tauren Poole. None of them have carried the ball during the regular season.
