Le’Veon Bell’s season-long holdout wrecked many fantasy football teams last season, when he sat out in a bitter contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
On Monday, the star running back took a moment out to tweet an “overdue” apology.

Bell was ranked at or near the top in many fantasy player rankings last year, but he sat out the entire season.
The three-time Pro Bowler signed as a free agent with the New York Jets this offseason and said last week that he feels so refreshed, he’s willing to stretch his limit this season.
“I’m up for 500 [touches] if it’s going to take us to a Super Bowl,” Bell said, exaggerating the number to make a point.
Bell, who led the league with 406 touches in 2017, is ranked as the No. 12 fantasy running back in points-per-reception formats by ESPN’s Matthew Berry.
