Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Appeal of suspension to be heard in mid-August
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday that the appeal of Bell's (knee) four-game suspension will take place in the second week of August, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

In conjunction with Tomlin's remarks, Bell wouldn't elaborate on the reason for allegedly missing drug tests, which precipitated his second ban related to the topic. The distraction aside, Bell expected to be fully recovered from last season's MCL and PCL tears at the start of training camp. The Steelers' first practice in the coming days will ultimately relay Bell's current level of health, but DeAngelo Williams is yet again in a prime position to have sustained relevance for the first quarter of the 2016 schedule.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (ankle) has been placed on the Steelers' physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Green had offseason surgery on his ankle and isn't yet recovered enough to practice with the team. The injury isn't seen as serious and the tight end should be able to practice with the team relatively soon. 2016 will be Green's first year with Pittsburgh, where he'll be the Day One starter after spending four years behind Antonio Gates in San Diego.

Steelers' Antonio Brown: Set to report to Camp Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brown, who is said to be hopeful that his contract situation will be addressed before the start of the season, will report to training camp Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

Brown, who is coming off a fantasy-friendly 136-catch season in 2015, is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in base salary this coming season and $8.71 million in 2017. That's something of a bargain, compared to the salaries other top NFL wideouts haul in, but at this stage, there's nothing to suggest that he plans to engineer any sort of holdout. That's certainly good news for the Steelers, with fellow key wideout Martavis Bryant set to serve a one-year suspension and star running back Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the coming campaign. In any case, a healthy Brown remains QB Ben Roethlisberger's top target and sits atop most fantasy wideout cheat sheets.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Rejects suspension talk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell says he will win the appeal of the potential four-game suspension he faces for missing drug tests and thus won't miss any games as a result of the situation, ESPN.com reports.

Bell's rejection of potential suspension talk came in the form of a comment from his verified Instagram account on a picture posted by someone else. At the moment, Bell is reportedly appealing the suspension, which is why it hasn't been announced, According to the league's collective bargaining agreement, a player can miss up to two drug tests without forfeiting games, but a four-game suspension is triggered upon a third missed test. Earlier this offseason, Bell denied missing or failing any tests, but despite what he says, his situation is still obviously one of huge importance for fantasy owners to monitor going forward.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Could fill in early on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the 2016 campaign, Williams could head the Steelers' backfield early on this season.

Previous question marks surrounding Bell had revolved around the health of his surgically-repaired knee, but now the more pressing issue appears to be his potential four-game suspension. With that in mind, Williams' fantasy value gets at least a temporary boost, especially considering how capably the 33-year-old filled in last season for Bell, who missed 10 contests due to injuries, as well as a suspension.
