Bell rushed 13 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns while catching nine of 10 targets for 77 yards and another touchdown during Sunday's 39-38 victory over Baltimore.
Bell -- who entered the game averaging 3.9 carries on the season -- remained inefficient on the ground Sunday but, as usual, made up for it with his work in the passing game. The Michigan State product is now up to nine touchdowns on the year while sitting top-five in the league in both rushing (1,105) and receiving yards (579) at his position. There's simply not many better fantasy options than Bell given his consistently heavy workload. As such, he'll likely be among the highest-owned players in DFS during his Week 15 matchup against a Patriots team that's allowed a league-high 5.1 yards per carry this season.
Bell rushed 18 times for 76 yards and caught five of six targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-20 win over the Bengals.
Bell led the Steelers in both rushing and receiving yards, with his output in the latter category marking a season high. The tailback's night was highlighted by an unusual scoring play, as a couple Bengals defenders declined the clear opportunity to push him out of bounds following a reception, thus paving the way for him to tip-toe down the sideline past them en route to a 35-yard touchdown. While that gave Bell his first receiving score of the season, he's now topped 180 all-purpose yards in back-to-back games, which is a great sign for fantasy owners at this stage of the season.
Bell rushed 20 times for 95 yards and caught 12 of 14 targets for 88 yards during Sunday's 31-28 victory over Green Bay.
Bell hadn't topped 3.8 yards per carry in the past four games, so his 4.8 mark Sunday was certainly a breath of fresh air. His stat line would've looked a little prettier had he found the end zone, too, but the Steelers decided to pass on the majority of their plays near the goal line. That led to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger having a four-touchdown evening, coming at Bell's statistical expense. His next chance to reach paydirt will come in Week 12 against a Bengals defense that is better at defending the air than the ground.
Bell rushed 12 times for 46 yards and brought in nine of 11 targets for 57 yards in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.
Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau appeared intent on not allowing Bell to beat the Titans on the ground, leading to the standout running back's lowest carry total since the opener versus the Browns. The 25-year-old's yardage tally was also his worst since that contest, but Bell helped make it up to fantasy owners with his second-most prolific reception total of the campaign. Bell's usage continues to be through the roof in most games, rendering him an elite option in all season-long and daily formats despite a current 3.8 yards per carry figure that's his lowest since his rookie season. He'll look to get his numbers on the ground back up versus the Packers in a Week 12 home showdown.
Bell rushed 26 times for 80 yards and hauled in five of six targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Colts.
Bell saw a heavy workload on the ground with 25-plus carries for the fifth time in the last six contests, though the sixth-year tailback has managed less than 4.0 yards per tote in the last three contests. Still, the sheer volume he's seeing has helped him generate solid-to-spectacular fantasy production. As is customary, Bell also retains a sizable role in the passing game, keeping him at elite status in all formats. He'll look to continue his strong stretch of play in just four days in a Thursday night Week 11 tilt versus the Titans.
