Steelers reporter thinks RB Le'Veon Bell could see 300 carries this season

The Steelers experimented with using running back LeGarrette Blount @LG_Blount in the first-team offense during OTAs and minicamp. Steelers reporter Scott Brown thinks the team will use Blount and rookie Dri Archer so as to not overwhelm starter Le'Veon Bell this season, but Bell will still be a "prominent part of the offense" and "could see 300 carries," according to Brown.
Despite missing the first three games of his rookie year, Bell carried the ball 244 times and tacked on 45 receptions last year.

Fantasy Analysis:

Brown wrote that Bell will see "not much more" than 300 carries, but considering that only two RBs reached that amount last season, how much more does he really need? The Steelers have said they are committed to the ground game this year, and Bell is their unquestioned leader. If he can stay healthy, Bell will be a solid RB1 in standard leagues and even better in PPRs. The fact that the Steelers want to execute their offense at a faster tempo this year also bodes well for the Michigan State product.
