Patriots | LeGarrette Blount, Shane Vereen limited

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:20:19 -0800

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) and Shane Vereen (ankle) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: After having double-digit carries each of the previous three games, Blount ($4,500) had only eight carries in Week 15, as most of the running work came from Jonas Gray. Vereen ($4,700) continues to see his role limited, as well. It's anyone's guess what Bill Belichick will do on a weekly basis, but Blount likely remains your safest play at FantasyScore. However, this week against the New York Jets should be one to especially look to avoid any Pats runners.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount misses practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 15:19:54 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Blount ($5,300) will play against the Miami Dolphins. He's been featured by the Pats as their main rusher lately (he had 20 carries last week), so it makes more sense to run with him at FantasyScore, especially in Week 15 against a Miami unit that has been vulnerable on the ground of late.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount resolves court case

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 10:32:18 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount will have his marijuana possession charge in Pittsburgh dropped if he serves 50 hours of community service by February. Blount could still receive a punishment from the NFL once his case is resolved, according to his attorney.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Blount receive any punishment before the end of the season, so he should be available for fantasy owners over the last few weeks of the season. Blount has received a good number of carries since joining the Patriots and probably will continue to receive a good amount of carries. He costs $5,300 on FantasyScore and could be a running back or flex option for owners.

Patriots | Pats could rely on running game

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 07:21:59 -0800

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray could run the ball a lot in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers, which ranks 30th in the league against the run.

Fantasy Tip: Blount ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) could be the one they turn to, or they could go back to Jonas Gray ($3,400; 6.8%) after his benching. Blount figures to have the upper hand considering how much he came through for the team last week. This was also the period where he had his three best games last season. Blount makes for a good flex option with some uncertainty.

Patriots | Shane Vereen plays 62 snaps

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 09:17:34 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had a team-high 62 snaps in the team's Week 12 win over the Detroit Lions, but RB LeGarrette Blount had 17 snaps and two touchdowns in his team debut, while RB Brandon Bolden had just two snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is the safest bet for fantasy football production on the Patriots, especially in PPR leagues like FantasyScore, but the addition of Blount clearly clouds New England's backfield picture, and Bill Belichick can't be predicted on a week-to-week basis.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount back with vengeance

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:45:31 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount carried 12 times for a team-high 78 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after re-signing with the team this week.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was running mean, as he averaged 6.5 yards per carry and made up for the absence of Jonas Gray, who was held out after missing team meetings this week. Blount could be worth a look in future weeks in FantasyScore if he continues to see regular touches.

Patriots | Jonas Gray to split carries

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 06:13:56 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray will play Sunday, Nov. 23, after being late to practice Friday, Nov. 21. He'll split carries with RB LeGarrette Blount in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) is quite pricey to be on the wrong side of Bill Belichick's patience. He's a risky RB2 on FantasyScore.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount won't unseat Jonas Gray

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 07:23:12 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the team to replace RB Jonas Gray as the between-the-tackles runner. Blount's presence gives the team another tough inside runner in the potentially poor-weather weeks ahead.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) will likely take a hit once Blount ($3,100; 6.2%) gets re-acclimated to the offense. Gray was already a risky option at his elevated price on FantasyScore because the Patriots' offense is so fickle from week to week. However, he remains the one to target in fantasy.
