They have no idea what he’s going to do.

  • With five days to go until Le'Veon Bell faces the final deadline for showing up at in 2018 Youth Donte Jackson Jersey , the Steelers are in the same position as everyone not named Le’Veon Bell: Per a league source, the Steelers have a plan for every potential outcome, which at this point boils down to two. He shows up, or he doesn’t. The Steelers simply don’t know at this point which it will be.The one wild card in the analysis continues to be the ongoing health of running back James Conner. If Conner suffers a season-ending injury on Thursday night against the Panthers (for tailbacks, the possibility of a season-ending always looms) Color Rush David Mayo Jersey , Bell suddenly acquires significant leverage, permitting a last-ditch effort to get the Steelers to offer more than $855,000 per week for the rest of the regular season, possibly along with an incentive package tied to postseason performances, among other things.Assuming Conner emerges unscathed from the game against the Panthers Youth Trai Turner Jersey , the Steelers will wait for Bell to show up, or not to show up, by Tuesday. If he does, the current plan isn’t to treat him like a rented car with full insurance coverage, but to incorporate him into the offense in a way designed to make it better. That could include , among other things, keeping Conner in the backfield and, from time to time, lining Bell up in the slot.None of that matters unless and until he shows up. And the Steelers, like everyone not named Le’Veon Bell Color Rush Torrey Smith Jersey , will be waiting to see what happens by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.NFL Week 2 Thursday Night football start/sit advice Ravens vs BengalsThere aren’t many sure fire plays this week. I think the players you drafted to start, you should play. That would include these four.Must StartsWR A.J. GreenRB Alex CollinsRB Joe MixonK Justin TuckerIn fact some think Mixon will have a tough night and you therefore should bench him for a better match up:I have a hard time doing that. It seems every time I bench a starter because of a poor match up they have a big day. The thing with this match up is outside of the top four listed above you have no idea who’s going to score the points this week.Start Em if you have toWR Michael CrabtreeQB Joe FlaccoBaltimore DSTCincinnati DSTTE Tyler EifertSleeper PicksQB Andy DaltonWR John RossI really like Ross as a player who could break out as a rookie. The Bengals will have to throw the ball a lot to keep up. The Ravens are one point favorites on the road with an over/under of 43 points. That seems a little low to me so I like the over on this the most. If I had to pick a team I’m going to pick an upset by the Bengals for no particular reason. Bengals 24 Ravens 21Panthers vs FalconsOn the Panthers (1-0) vs Falcons (0-1) front it looks like running back Davonte Freeman will not be 100%. Freeman dinged his knee in the Falcons opening week loss to the Eagles.Must StartsQB Cam NewtonRB Christian McCaffreyWR Devin FunchessWR Julio JonesK Matt BryantQB Matt RyanGiven how poorly Ryan played last week you might consider sitting him this week. Don’t. He always plays the Panthers tough in front of the home crowd. Plus Julio Jones seems to save his best for the Panthers as well. Start Em if you have to:WR Mohammad SanuK Graham GanoTE Austin HooperSleeper PicksRB Tevin ColemanTE Ian ThomasIf Freeman is a game day scratch then Coleman has No. 2 running back potential. I see Thomas as getting significant targets filling in for injured Greg Olsen.The Falcons are six point favorites with the over/under at 44.5. I also like the over here as these teams will air it out this week. Panthers 27 Falcons 23
