Giants | NYG still interested in veteran running backs

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 06:49:40 -0700

The New York Giants are one of several teams continuing to keep close tabs on free-agent RBs LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) and Adrian Peterson (Vikings), in the hopes that their salary demands will go down prior to the draft.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Blount nor Peterson should be viewed as prominent RB1 options in most fantasy formats. Blount is 30 and unlikely to duplicate his 18-touchdown performance from last season regardless of where he lands, while Peterson is 32 and has sustained multiple major knee injuries over the last three years.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount not interested in NE offer

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 15:40:16 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) does not plan to sign the current offer from the New England Patriots, which he received at the start of free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Blount wants to re-sign with the Patriots but likely is looking for more money, but the Patriots are sticking with their first offer. He had an outstanding 2016 season with the Patriots and would have a similar role if he re-signs. He would be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he returns to New England.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount back to New England?

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 17:23:19 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) is likely to re-sign with the New England Patriots sooner rather than later, according to beat writer Jim McBride.

Fantasy Tip: If Blount does return, his role as the power back in New England's high-scoring offense should keep him in the RB2 mix.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has offer from Pats

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 16:38:29 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) has received a contract offer from the New England Patriots this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Blount likely would continue to receive most of the carries if he decides to re-sign with the Patriots but may be looking for a more lucrative contract from a team. Blount can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues if he is back with New England.

Patriots | A LeGarrette Blount return still in question

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 16:37:14 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount would like to return to the Patriots after next season and the Patriots would like him back. However, Blount and the Patriots remain on different terms in regards to a long-term contract.

Fantasy Tip: Blount led all NFL running backs last year with 18 touchdowns -- easily the most of any season in his career. Odds are that 2016 will end up being a career year for Blount, so expectations should be lowered going forward. He is capable of double-digit touchdowns, but don't view Blount as more than a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Giants | LeGarrette Blount an option for Giants?

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 14:14:54 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) could be an option for the New York Giants because they are looking for a power running back to complement RB Paul Perkins, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has not been linked to many teams this offseason but should find a new team before the start of training camp. He may not be able to find a starting job but should be part of a running back committee. He could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his team and his role.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount likely to walk?

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 05:42:46 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is expected to receive an offer in free agency the team won't match, and they're believed to be prepared for it.

Fantasy Tip: The backfield in New England is a little crowded after James White's emergence in the Super Bowl. Blount is coming off a monster 18-touchdown year, and it's tough to expect a repeat performance from the 30-year-old this year. He'll be in the RB1 discussion, but he's a more secure RB2.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount thrives in postseason

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 16:27:53 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount has rushed for eight touchdowns in his last seven postseason games. He has scored six times in his last seven games this season, including the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Blount led the NFL in rushing touchdowns this season with 18, so it's no surprise that he's continuing to score in the playoffs. Look for the Patriots to keep riding him in the Super Bowl against a subpar Atlanta Falcons rush defense.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount powers late in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 18:44:35 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and one touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. He added one catch for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been masterful at finding the end zone this season, and -- assuming the to-be free agent returns to the Pats -- he'll be a viable RB3 in most formats for the 2017 fantasy campaign.
