It's certainly hard for fantasy owners not to jump the gun in celebrating this one. 


We've finally got our first good news in the Le'Veon Bell holdout saga since we learned the fantasy stud wouldn't be playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. Bell is reportedly expecting to rejoin the team and fantasy teams alike during the Week 7 bye. 

Don't forget that 'expect' and 'will' are differently-defined words in the English language for a reason, so nothing is guaranteed yet. However, this seems like the one positive update we've been dying for since this whole fiasco started. 


A Week 7 return for the bye seems to make sense considering the extra time it would allow Bell to integrate himself back into rhythm with the Steelers offense.


Bell is missing out on a six-figure check every time he misses a Steelers game this season. Those are starting to add up to a lofty total at this point.
