Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Named FedEx Ground Player Of The Week For Week 4

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell had quite a game in his team’s Sunday road win over the Baltimore Ravens and that has now led to him being voted the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for Week 4.

Bell, who touched the football 39 times in total in the Steelers 26-9 win over the Ravens, registered 186 yards from scrimmage in the game and scored two short rushing touchdowns. 42 of those yards came via four receptions.

Bell had a few long runs during Sunday’s game and he had his most success when running behind pulling offensive linemen. The Steelers former second-round draft pick now enters Week 5 of the season with the second-most touches in the NFL. Bell also leads all NFL running backs in total offensive snaps played entering Week 5.

For the season, Bell has 324 yards rushing and has scored three times on 87 total carries. He’s also now caught 17 passes for another 98 yards.

Bell has been named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week a few times already during his career and won the FedEx Ground Player of the Year Award after the 2014 season.

    Chuuuuchuuuu. Who is getting back on?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I like that he is getting in a groove. Once he gets going he is damn near flawless running the football.

  • Mark

    We’re most successful when we run the footballl. If I have to choose I prefer LeVeon running 39 times instead of Ben throwing 39 times.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, the people saying get rid of him and Conner’s better are ridiculous. He’s definitely an elite back.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    not me. yall can have that train. i stick by my words. i said i wouldnt hop on the bell bandwagon and i meant it.

  • jsteeler

    Bell wins air and Ground Fed Ex and Heyward wins Defensive Player of the week. Wow. The Steelers are showing up on 2 of the 3 sides of the ball in the NFL!
    I like it!

  • Steel-on-Target

    Love that he’s getting back in the groove. Hate that it would be 15, 17 or whatever millions he decides it would take next year and beyond.

  • Steeler Nation!

    I don’t know anyone that wanted to get rid of him. I also don’t know anyone that thinks he is worth what he thinks he is worth. Not even right now. Much less in 2-3 years. He still hasn’t looked as good as he did in 2014 or 2015 before the Bengals game. He still hasn’t shown the burst that he did then, capable of making more splash plays. The O line opened some gaping holes vs Ravens, and he did look better. He sure didn’t look he is worth $15M though.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    There was ppl saying get rid of him on these boards. He may not be worth it to you or to some, but when he is on he helps us win games.

  • Steeler Nation!

    Yeah I think MOST are disappointed that he turned down a generous contract. And say let him walk after franchise tagging him twice. Count me in that group. But almost all are hoping he’s productive now and keeps helping us win. Still not worth what he’s asking

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    If you say so. He wants what he wants we were this close to signing him. If each side gives a little a deal could still get done next year and with Ben on a wait and see retirement year we will need him to transition when Ben is gone.

  • Steeler Nation!

    He wants what he wants but he’s not gonna get it here. He probably won’t get it anywhere. Just not smart to invest all that into the RB position. Especially with his carries mounting and injuries destined to catch up to him.
