Pittsburgh Steelers game meetings are set to begin at 9:00 AM EST on Wednesday and running back Le'Veon Bell is reportedly not in attendance. Bell, who has not reported to the Steelers after being franchised tagged in the offseason, appears likely to carry his holdout over at least through Week 2. With Bell out of the picture, second-year running back James Conner showed well against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1 and should see almost all of the work in the backfield again in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Bell owners just have to wait and hope he reports to the team sooner rather than later.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he has not been in contact with running back Le'Veon Bell. "Nothing has changed regarding us," Tomlin said. "We're preparing to play this week with the guys that are here and working , James (Conner) being central to that. I will not withhold information from you guys. If and when any of that changes, I'll let you know. If it does not, my answer will remain the same." As of now, we should assume that Bell will continue his holdout and be unavailable to fantasy owners for Week 2 against the Chiefs. In his absence in Week 1, James Conner had a big performance. He will continue to be a must-start for however long Bell holds out.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are not considering a trade of running back Le'Veon Bell, according to a source. The Steelers plan to wait out his holdout, and some around Bell believe that he'll be back before the end of September. Bell was likely a top-three fantasy selection in most fantasy leagues, so the longer he holds out, the worse off it'll be for his owners. Hopefully everyone that drafted Bell was able to handcuff James Conner to him. Conner will be the workhorse in Pittsburgh's backfield for however long Bell is out, and he's a must-start in Week 1 against the Browns in a game that should feature a lot of running due to expected high winds.
