Patriots | LeGarrette Blount wearing down defenses

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 18:05:25 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran 15 times for 92 yards and a touchdown in the second half against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 and 17 times for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the second half against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: As injuries force New England to play quarterback roulette, Blount has been a workhorse. He will be a borderline RB1 in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he might be a nice sell-high candidate before Tom Brady returns from suspension to revitalize the passing attack.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount scores a pair

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:15:56 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had 24 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been a workhorse for the Patriots thus far, topping 20 carries and rushing for at least 70 yards in all three games while scoring five times. However, his role could change dramatically once Tom Brady returns, so you may want to try to shop Blount while his value is at its peak.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has big game

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 13:52:39 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown on 29 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Blount may be a focal point for the Patriots offense next week if Jimmy Garoppolo is not able to play in Week 3. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and should be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount battling Tyler Gaffney?

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 10:42:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is "likely" battling RB Tyler Gaffney the club's final running back spot. RBs Dion Lewis and James White "appear to be locked in" as the receiving running backs, while RB Brandon Bolden "figures" to have a spot on the roster thanks to his role on special teams. Blount and Gaffney are competing for the "between-the-tackles kind of role."

Fantasy Tip: Due to Blount's proven track record, you have to believe he has the leg up in this competition, though it's also interesting that Gaffney was able to take an entire series worth of carries in the first half of New England's most recent preseason game with the first-team offense. No matter who emerges from this battle, though, they may not hold much fantasy value, given the amount of pieces regularly being used out of the Patriots backfield, as well as Bill Belichick's sometimes unpredictable use of his running backs.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount runs over Chicago

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 20:22:34 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had 11 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 23-22 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: New England's backfield is tough to predict. Blount is worth grabbing in the later rounds in case he carves out somewhat of a steady role, but he will be tough to rely on from one week to the next.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount fighting for spot

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:29:12 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount appears motivated in the opening days of training camp as he fights for a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Blount knows the New England system well and appears to be a favorite of the coaching staff, but he'll need a big training camp and preseason to win a roster spot. Even then, his fantasy appeal is not terribly high given the presence of Dion Lewis, Brandon Bolden and James White, among others.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to carry the load?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:01:44 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is going to have the opportunity to show the team what he can be, running backs coach Ivan Fears said Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Dion Lewis on the mend and Tom Brady suspended, New England could lean on Blount and the power running game early in the season. If everything falls into place, Blount could be a useful RB3, but don't plan to rely on him as a fantasy starter.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount avoids PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:11:40 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip), who missed all of the spring session due to a hip injury, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and appears ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Blount might be fighting for his roster spot in training camp and the preseason. If he can make the roster he is a decent RB4 or RB5 for depth, but avoid him outside of the later rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount on the bubble?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:51:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's (hip) roster spot isn't a given, but there shouldn't be any issues if he returns from his season-ending hip injury and runs hard.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has RB5 luster in fantasy, but the Patriots tend to feature different running backs in different matchups. He has had big performances in the past and is worth taking a shot on late.

Patriots | Key Patriots absent Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:17:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), RB Dion Lewis (knee), WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are infamous for their vague injury reports and resting of players. Obviously they're going to take caution with the players listed above, though. As long as none of these guys suffer any setbacks this offseason, they should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Edelman and Gronk should both be viewed as fantasy starters at their respective positions, with more value in PPR formats. Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy, while Blount has RB3 potential if he, too, can keep his health. Amendola is the biggest injury risk; he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.
