Bell ran for 120 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, and added four catches on five targets for 22 yards during Thursday's 28-7 win at Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight week Bell ran for over 100 yards, and his score on a draw play from five yards out on the Steelers' first possession gives him four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) in his past three games. He'll look to keep the momentum going in Week 16 against the Giants.

Bell notched 28 carries for 146 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 24-9 victory at Cleveland. Furthermore, he tacked on eight receptions (on nine targets) for 55 yards.

EDGE Analysis

En route to a season high on the ground, Bell reached the end zone from a yard out as time expired before halftime for the Steelers' sole offensive touchdown of the day. His second rushing score in as many weeks, he's beginning to get a groove indicative of a player who entered the season with 22 touchdowns in 35 career games. He'll attempt to keep up the pace Thursday versus a Colts defense that has conceded 10 touchdowns and 4.6 YPC to running backs this season.

Bell carried 17 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-30 loss to the Cowboys. He also caught nine of 10 targets for 77 yards and another score.

EDGE Analysis

Bell caught a two-yard touchdown on a slant to conclude the first drive of the game and plowed in again from the one-yard line in the fourth quarter. He hasn't rushed for more than 81 yards since his season-debut but continues to produce effectively as a receiver and is averaging an impressive 132.2 scrimmage yards per game in 2016. Quite surprisingly, his trips to the end zone were his first two of the season, but he could feasibly add to that total next week against a lousy Browns defensive unit.

Bell rushed 14 times for 32 yards, and caught six of nine targets for 38 more in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Bell was completely bottled up on the ground, averaging a paltry 2.3 yards per carry as the whole Steelers offense stumbled. Baltimore was able to key on the run with a clearly limited Ben Roethlisberger (knee) unable to provide much of a threat in the passing game until the fourth quarter. This whole offense should improve as Big Ben gets healthier, but a bounce-back effort is far from guaranteed next week against a Cowboys team that excels at limiting opposing time of possession.

Bell had 21 carries for 81 yards and caught 10 passes on 13 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Without Ben Roethlisberger (knee), the Steelers leaned heavily on Bell, giving him a season-high 31 touches. He had more success on the ground in the first half, and then caught a bunch of short passes from Landry Jones in the second half. The versatile RB surprisingly still hasn't scored a touchdown this year, but has been a beast in PPR formats, with 30 receptions for 245 yards in four games. Make sure to take Bell out of your lineup next week, as Pittsburgh will have its bye.

Bell rushed 10 times for 53 yards, and added six catches for 55 more on seven targets, as well as a two-point conversion catch, in Sunday's 30-15 loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Bell's rushing workload was limited with the Steelers surprisingly playing the vast majority of this contest from behind, but he managed to top 100 yards from scrimmage nonetheless. The 24-year-old running back is averaging a robust 5.5 yards per carry since returning from a three-game suspension while playing in a three-down role. Expect him to get more carries against the Patriots next week with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) banged up.

Bell carried 20 times for just 66 yards in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets, but he added 88 receiving yards while hauling in nine of 11 targets.

EDGE Analysis

Pittsburgh could generate little on the ground versus a stout Jets front, but they still made a concentrated effort to get their star tailback involved, leading to an impressive 154 scrimmage yards. Bell has yet to find the end zone in two games this season, but he has already racked up 332 yards from scrimmage and should see his fantasy value increased even more once he starts finding pay dirt. He will have the opportunity to do so next week versus the Dolphins.

Bell gained 144 yards on 18 carries and 34 yards on five receptions (six targets) in Sunday's 43-14 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Bell clearly didn't suffer from the three-game layoff to start his season, looking as smooth as ever while piling up 178 scrimmage yards. He also played quite a few snaps out of the slot, which allowed DeAngelo Williams to get on the field at the same time. Williams only got four carries and one target, but he did vulture a two-yard touchdown late in the blowout, two snaps after Bell ripped off a 44-yard run. While Williams does have an excellent track record at the goal line, Sunday's usage seemed to be about Bell needing a quick breather, as opposed to any preference for using Williams. There weren't any other goal-line carries, as Ben Roethlisberger took care of the scoring with his arm. Even if he does lose some goal-line work to his 33-year-old teammate, Bell can be viewed as a top-two option at his position every week, with Arizona's David Johnson the only comparable asset. Bell will face a tough Jets run defense in Week 5, but he's never been bothered by difficult matchups in the past, thanks to his unmatched combination of running ability and receiving skills.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Bell is highly conditioned and will be busy in Sunday's game against Kansas City, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tomlin confirmed that Bell stayed in top condition during a three-game suspension to open the season, setting the star running back up to take on a heavy workload from the outset. Even in a tough matchup against Kansas City, the shifty 24-year-old is a no-question starter in all formats. Bell was officially activated Monday.

Bell has officially been activated from the Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner list, per NFL.com.

EDGE Analysis

After serving a three-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Bell was eligible for reinstatement on Monday and is now formally the top running back in Pittsburgh once again. He may serve as one of the team's top receiving options right off the bat as well; the Steelers have lacked an elite option in the passing game behind All-Pro wideout Antonio Brown through the first three weeks of the season, as DeAngelo Williams (14) and tight end Jesse James (10) are second and third on the team in receptions, respectively, behind Brown's 24. This is a void Bell should help fill, and fill well, as the multi-faceted tailback corralled a gaudy 83 receptions for 854 receiving yards and three touchdowns in his last fully-healthy, 16-game season. While it's unclear how many touches Williams may command after his admirable showing as the Steelers' lead back, Bell is positioned to embark on his delayed 2016 campaign as a top fantasy option across all formats.
