Le’Veon Bell Apologizes to His 2018 Fantasy Owners Via Twitter; Claims to Bring Home the Trophy in 2019

With the 2019 NFL season fast approaching, fantasy football owners are gearing up for their respective drafts. Participants are taking notes and making preparations in order to acquire fantasy league bragging rights. Former Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell spoke about the upcoming fantasy football season, on Monday.

Last year, Bell made headlines for not being willing to participate under the Steelers’ franchise tag. Ultimately, this led to Bell holding out for the entirety of the 2018 season.

Since Bell did not play, fantasy owners who selected him in drafts were left high and dry. The running back recently tweeted that this season will be different.


Before his 2018 holdout, Bell was a consistent top-five running back in fantasy football.

In 2017, the All-Pro running back rushed 321 times for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns. In addition, he caught 85 passes for 655 yards and two touchdowns.

Bell’s versatility and patient running style led him to be the second ranked running back in standard and PPR fantasy leagues.

Now that Bell has signed with the New York Jets, he promises that he will return to the fantasy back that he used to be. Whether or not it happens is still in question, but all eyes will be on Bell for the 2019 season.
