News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Le'Veon Bell out for wild-card game
Josh Harris expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 2, 2:30 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers running back and team MVP Le’Veon Bell has been ruled out of Saturday’s AFC wild-card game against the Baltimore Ravens. Bell hyperextended his right knee against the Bengals in the regular-season finale. He did not practice all week. Bell’s replacement is Josh Harris, who has 16 yards on nine carries in his professional career. He was inserted into the Bengals game and had a 59-yard run that was nullified by a holding penalty. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FFToday's Take: It's been the general thinking that Bell would miss this game and now it's official. Harris will get the start for the Steelers with Dri Archer used in a change of pace role. The newly signed Ben Tate is expected to be active but should clearly be the No.3 running back against the Ravens.


Steelers make it official, sign Ben Tate
Insurance for Le'Veon Bell

Steelers now have signed running back Ben Tate to the 53-man roster, the team announced today. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Steelers are using Tate as insurance for Le'Veon Bell who injured his knee in Week 17 and will likely miss the first round of the playoffs. Josh Harris and Dri Archer would likely receive the bulk of the backfield work against the Ravens is Bell is out.


Injury Steelers looking at Ben Tate
LeVeon Bell probably unavailable for first round of playoffs

Pittburgh Steelers
Jason La Canfora posted on Twitter: "Steelers are hosting Ben Tate today as ESPN reported, with LeVeon Bell likely out this week. He is the only RB they're bringing in" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears that Bell is doubtful for the tilt with Baltimore in the Wild Card. Tate could make an interesting value in daily fantasy play if he gets up to speed in the offense and Bell remains out.


Vikings release Ben Tate
Didn't play in Week 16
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 23, 7:30 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings have waived running back Ben Tate after an unproductive month with the team. The Vikings claimed Tate last month after he had been waived by the Browns. He was active for all five games with the Vikings, but only played in three of them. He rushed for 38 yards on 13 carries. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Tate didn't see the field in Week 16 as Joe Banyard backed up starter Matt Asiata. Tate's fantasy value for this season is likely over unless he lands with a playoff team. Both the Colts and Cardinals showed some lukewarm interest in him earlier this season but in all likelihood his 2014 season is over.


Injury McKinnon place on IR, back injury
Asiata expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 6, 6:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings have placed running back Jerick McKinnon on injured reserve, ending his rookie season. McKinnon hurt his lower back and missed the last game against Carolina. He was already ruled out for Sunday, when the Vikings host the New York Jets. (Fox Sports)

FFToday's Take: McKinnon can be safely dropped in all redraft leagues. Expect the Vikings to use Matt Asiata and Ben Tate on Sunday against the Jets. Asiata would be a desperation FLEX play against a solid Jets run defense.
