    Steelers star RB LeVeon Bell is facing a 3 game suspension for smoking L's (weed) with former teammate LaGarrett Blunt, but will that hurt his stock any in 2015 Fantasy drafts?

    Didn't he do the exact same thing as Blount? How did Blount get 1 game and Bell get 3?

    Yes, it will slightly impact his FF draft stock. Without the suspension, he was a lock for a top 3 pick (top pick overall IMO). This drops him to round 2 for the time being.

    Ultimately, I expect his suspension to be reduced to 1 or 2 games.

    Yea IDK how Blount gets 1 game and Bell gets 3, might have something to do with the charges. I think they were in Bells car

    I would still draft him in the first round, I mean come on the dude is an absolute freaking monster. Arian foster missed 3 games last year and was still top 5 in fantasy points for rbs. Plus its not how you start in fantasy, its how you finish! Won 9 in a row to win the ship last year

    Bell only averages 17 points a week, and if he misses 3 possibly 4 weeks in the beginning whoever drafts him would have had to have a hell of a draft to compensate for his absence. He doesn't have those 30-point days every week, so no way Im taking him in the 1st this year.

    Great RB, my favorite RB in fact since he was coming up but theres 4 or 5 other RB's with 1st round grades..

    Good question... in that scenario...If my mock drafts show me hes dropping to the 2nd round then i'll 100% grab him early 2nd if not late 1st.
