Patriots | LeGarrette Blount will not require surgery

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 11:45:01 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) will not need surgery on his season-ending hip injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was lost for the season in Week 14 and placed on the Reserved/Injured List shortly thereafter. The 29-year-old, who led the Patriots in rushing with 703 yards and six touchdowns last season, will be an unrestricted free agent following the season. If New England chooses to bring him back, he should return as the early-down complement to Dion Lewis next season.

Patriots | New England likely to add at RB

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 21:06:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has the potential to be the top running back with this current group, with White and Bolden as solid backups. However, look for a rookie, and possibly a veteran running back, to be added in the offseason to provide competition.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:50:08 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Fantasy Tip: Gone are the days of Blount rushing for hundreds of yards and multiple touchdowns. The Patriots do need a ground-and-pound type of running back, but Blount may not be the answer for the future. This situation will play out over the course of the next few months, but Blount may be heading for fantasy irrelevancy.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount placed on IR

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 14:19:20 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Bolden ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and James White ($5,200, 10.4%) figure to take over primary running back duties with Blount out. Bolden should do the ground and pound while White should continue to be mainly involved in the passing game. White, especially, is worth a long look on FantasyScore this week in a PPR scoring format.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount could return

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 15:57:23 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) could be back at some point during the playoffs. His timetable is unclear and the Patriots are still gathering information on his hip injury.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will still miss the last three games of the regular season, so James White and Brandon Bolden will be the only relevant fantasy running backs on the Patriots. White ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has more value in PPR scoring formats like FantasyScore, while Bolden ($2,400, 4.8%) should receive most of the carries.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount out for the year

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 15:11:02 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) is out for the rest of the season with a hip injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are now down to Brandon Bolden ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and James White ($5,200, 10.4%) to head their backfield, with Montee Ball likely backing them up. Bolden should be the primary runner going forward while White should continue to be primarily used in the passing game. Unfortunately, the Patriots play the Tennessee Titans in Week 15, who have been a top fantasy defense against running backs this year. New England's backfield may be one to avoid.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to miss time?

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 07:45:15 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) could miss some time, according to sources, but nothing is definitive yet.

Fantasy Tip: James White ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) looks like the go-to back against the Tennessee Titans this week. He's a decent midrange grab on FantasyScore.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount doesn't do much

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:44:59 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount carried 16 times for 56 yards in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23. He also had one catch for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a disappointing game for Blount and his FantasyScore owners, and when the Pats had the ball in the red zone and ran it was James White punching it in, not Blount.
