Eagles | LeGarrette Blount wants to stay in Philly

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 11:46:24 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount wants to return to the Eagles, he told NFL Network during an interview.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will be playing in an age-32 season in 2018. He mustered only two rushing TDs in 2017's regular season but found paydirt in each of the three playoff games for Philly. The Eagles have a lot of talented bodies and may opt for a cheaper, more versatile rotation. Assuming Blount returns, he's merely fantasy roster depth in the waning rounds of a draft.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount moving up playoff TD list

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 00:42:40 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount moved up to seventh on the NFL's all-time postseason rushing touchdown leaderboard, scoring his 10th career playoff touchdown on the ground in the team's Conference Championship win Sunday, Jan. 21, against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Despite registering single-digit rush attempts in each of Philadelphia's first two playoff games, Blount has managed to make the most of his work, as he's found the end zone in both contests. Jay Ajayi has been getting the bulk of the carries, but even so, Blount should continue to remain a force in red-zone and goaline situations.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount scores in win

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 19:00:48 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Blount powered his way in for a short touchdown, but he has been taking more and more of a backseat to Jay Ajayi in recent weeks. He looks like a touchdown-dependent option at this point.

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:36:09 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount scored a touchdown for the Eagles in his team's 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Blount finished with nine carries and 19 yards rushing.

Fantasy Tip: Blount could be effective in short-yardage situations, especially if Philadelphia struggles against its opponent next week. Keep an eye on Blount for fantasy contests.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount close to earning bonus

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 07:22:56 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has a $300,000 bonus in his contract if he reaches 750 rushing yards this season, according to a source. He has 729 rushing yards entering Week 17's game against the Dallas Cowboys, so he needs 21 yards in order to earn the incentive.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount halted in his tracks

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:52:09 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed seven times for just 12 yards in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Blount hasn't been the same since the team acquired Jay Ajayi, and he even looks to be behind Corey Clement in the pecking order for touches in the Philly backfield now. He is only worth a look as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point of the season.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount heads backfield

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 18:10:29 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for a team-high 97 yards on 15 carries and lost a fumble in a 31-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has led the Eagles in carries in each of the past two games, and it doesn't seem like the arrival of Jay Ajayi is going to hurt his fantasy value too much. He is a serviceable RB3.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount totals 13 rushes

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:59:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was used as a hammer to change-of-pace backs Corey Clement, Jay Ajayi and Kenjon Barner. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry, and he ripped off a 30-yard run in this one. However, Blount remains more of a low-end RB2 in standard fantasy formats heading into Week 12 against the Bears. He has lesser value in PPR leagues since he doesn't really ever catch the ball.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount to remain the starter?

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 10:58:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount will remain the starting running back despite the addition of Jay Ajayi, according to vice president of football operations Howie Roseman.

Fantasy Tip: Common sense would suggest this is a temporary stance while Ajayi learns the playbook, as the Eagles did not spend a fourth-round pick to upgrade the position only to sit him behind what they already had. Ajayi may not reach the fantasy heights he achieved with the Miami Dolphins last year, but his new situation is much better from a fantasy perspective than the one he is leaving this year. Owners should probably bench Ajayi this week and be ready to start him again following the team's Week 10 bye.
