Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner is ready to absorb Le'Veon Bell's repetitions as the team's main ball carrier during organized team activities. With Bell expected to hold out until the start of the regular season, Conner should be the team's main running back in OTAs and throughout training camp. The second-year running back is ready, as he told reporters, "I want all the reps as possible before it really counts. It all counts right now, but until we strap up Game 1, I want to get as many reps as possible so I can be as comfortable as possible for whenever my number is called during the season." Conner's rookie season ended early due to an MCL injury, but he is fully healed. From a fantasy standpoint, Conner is nothing more than a Bell handcuff.

According to a report, there is no expectation that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will report any earlier than he did last season. Bell has been angling for a long-term deal for a few years, but the organization has been hesitant, instead placing the franchise tag on him for two straight seasons. Bell missed all of training camp in 2017 and reported right before Week 1. Look for that to be the case again this summer, unless the two sides agree upon an extension by July 16. Contract drama aside, Bell will be locked in as a no-brainer fantasy RB1 in 2018.

According to a source, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will not attend organized team activities, which begin on Tuesday. Bell has been angling for a long-term contract from the Steelers for several years and didn't report to Pittsburgh until September in 2017 after sitting out all of training camp last season. The team placed the franchise tag on Bell for the second straight offseason, which will pay him $14.5 million to tote the ball for the Steelers in 2018. Bell originally threatened to retire or sit out regular season games if the team didn't give him a long-term extension but he has since softened that stance. Look for Bell's offseason and preseason to closely resemble the route he took in 2017 if the two parties don't reach a long-term agreement by July 15, the deadline.
