Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has charges withdrawn

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 07:41:18 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount completed his 50 hours of community service, and his drug charge from earlier this season has been withdrawn, according to his attorney.

Fantasy Tip: Looking ahead to Sunday, Blount ($7,777; 15.5% of your cap) is a risky pick on FantasyScore when Marshawn Lynch is the same price. It's very possible the Pats use Blount to wear down the Seattle Seahawks defense. However, we'd much rather have Lynch at an equal price.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount didn't force Steelers' hand

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 12:56:32 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount didn't orchestrate his release from the Pittsburgh Steelers. "You know things didn't work out as planned … So we decided to part ways. I ended up here and now I'm about to play in the Super Bowl," Blount said Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to have big role?

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 17:00:40 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount should be a factor in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Feb. 1, in the opinion of Boston Herald writer Karen Guregian. Despite Seattle's highly ranked run defense, they lost games earlier this season to both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys, who used run-heavy game plans. The Green Bay Packers also had early success on the ground against the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game. The Packers opened up holes by overloading lanes with pulling linemen, which is something the Patriots like to do with their guards and tackles. If the Patriots stay away from the run, Seattle's linebackers will drop back in zone coverage, making it tougher on the Patriots' passing game.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots ran the ball just 14 times against the top-ranked run defense of the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs, but using Blount on the ground against Seattle should help open the passing game against the Seahawks’ tough secondary. The run game could also be used to exploit injured FS Earl Thomas (shoulder).

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has outstanding performance

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 09:37:24 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 18. "He makes contact on every play and seems to enjoy it. He's like a boxer throwing body punches. Eventually, he wears guys down and starts breaking those big runs," OG Ryan Wendell said. Blount played 42 offensive snaps in the game, passing his previous season high of 30. He also ran for 69 yards after contact against the Colts, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been the power back that the Patriots have needed down the stretch, but it's too hard to say how valuable he'll be in New England for fantasy owners next season, especially the way Bill Belichick changes up his backfield usage on a game-by-game basis.

Colts | Pats have run all over Colts

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 09:13:03 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 166 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional matchup between the two teams in 2013, and RB Jonas Gray slashed Indy for 201 yards on the ground this past November. The Patriots used an offense that featured a power-back look with a sixth offensive lineman against the Colts in November. "As a defensive player, you don't want to ever have that happen again," Colts DE Cory Redding said. "We didn't have our best game. It's up to us to do what we've done the past few weeks, to make sure that never happens again." New England rushed for just 14 total yards in their divisional win over the Baltimore Ravens last weekend, but they pretty much abandoned the run in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect a repeat performance for Gray ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), who has fallen down the running back depth chart. Gray didn't even have a single carry in last weekend's game. It's always dicey going with a Patriots running back at FantasyScore, but this might be the week to put faith in Blount ($4,500, 9.0% of cap).

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount in line for big game?

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 21:10:07 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 166 yards and four touchdowns against the Indianapolis Colts in the playoffs last year, and RB Jonas Gray ran for 201 yards and four scores in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Indianapolis has had major issues stopping New England's power running game recently, and if Gray is inactive again this weekend, Blount could be a sneaky play at FantasyScore.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount taken off injury report

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 14:42:11 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) was removed from the team's injury report Thursday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Blount should be good to go this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens were one of the best defenses against the run in 2014, however, making Blount a less than attractive option at $4,500 (9.0% of cap) on FantasyScore.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount limited Wednesday

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 13:10:59 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Blount ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be ready to play this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. He's a weak FantasyScore play, though, since the Ravens were one of the best run-stopping units in all of football this season.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount questionable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:38:05 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Blount will dress for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. Blount may not be the best option to use since the team has already clinched the top seed and could limit his playing time.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount limited

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:30:17 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25. The Patriots did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Blount is a risky option to use on FantasyScore this week if he is active, because he could be pulled from the game early since the team has the No. 1 spot in the playoffs clinched.
