Eagles | LeGarrette Blount to lead backfield?

Fri, 19 May 2017 18:20:07 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount will likely inherit the carries RB Ryan Mathews was given last year, according to beat writer Jimmy Kempski, and Kempski estimates Blount will see around 170 carries.

Fantasy Tip: Blount seems like a safe bet to handle the carries around the goal line, and if he also sees a bulk of the early-down work, he should have himself a nice season. Don't expect a repeat of last year's 18-touchdown outburst, but Blount could be a low-end RB2 or luxury RB3.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount likes new QB

Thu, 18 May 2017 19:19:41 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount said QB Carson Wentz is "one of those guys you want to build a team around" and "has the potential to be a really special player."

Fantasy Tip: Wentz showed promise in his rookie season, but it is still a reach to expect QB1 production from him in 2017. He is an appealing option in keeper formats but a backup in redraft leagues.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews done in Philly?

Wed, 17 May 2017 10:00:10 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews is expected to be released once he is healthy following the signing of LeGarrette Blount, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews has long been rumored to be out in Philadelphia, so Schefter isn't really breaking any new news here. The official move may take a while to happen, since the 29-year-old is still healing from neck surgery. Mathews may get another shot or two at running in the NFL, but his days of being a somewhat useful fantasy back are probably coming to an end.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount agrees with Eagles

Wed, 17 May 2017 07:25:53 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, May 17, worth up to $2.8 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles are expected to cut Ryan Mathews, and Blount will battle with Donnel Pumphrey and Wendell Smallwood for the carries on first and second downs. Darren Sproles will be in the mix on most third downs. If Blount, who should have a leg up on the rest, can seize the job, he'll be a decent RB2 in fantasy.

NFL | Teams still talking to LeGarrette Blount

Thu, 11 May 2017 07:21:21 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) has interested teams continue to talk to him, and they're trying to work around the compensation the New England Patriots attached to him.

Fantasy Tip: The tag placed on Blount is seldom used, and there's fear that it could scare teams away from him - much like the draft-pick compensation did to free agents in MLB. Blount is expected to land somewhere in a timeshare and could be a low-end RB2.

Patriots | Pats give LeGarrette Blount tender offer

Wed, 10 May 2017 12:40:29 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) received a one-year, $1.1 million tender offer from the New England Patriots before the May 9 deadline that affects compensatory picks, according to a source. The Patriots would receive help in their chances for a compensatory pick if Blount signs with another team.

Fantasy Tip: Blount likely will not re-sign with the Patriots because of the additions the team made at the position this offseason. Blount has been linked to a few teams but may be waiting for a better opportunity. He probably will be part of a committee no matter where he signs but could be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Wed, 03 May 2017 05:40:50 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) has interest from the Detroit Lions, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Blount figures to be busy on first and second downs wherever he lands, and he'll be a low-end RB2 in fantasy.
