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.

Patriots | Quiet night for LeGarrette Blount

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:08:51 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had eight carries for 31 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: New England is notorious for favoring a certain back based on the matchup, and Blount was the odd man out tonight. He still has plenty of upside because of his touchdown potential, but fantasy owners have to accept occasional duds.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount not on injury report

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 15:02:44 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been a solid running back for the Patriots this season and found the end zone 18 times during the regular season. Blount likely will receive a lot of carries against the Texans and should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount in team meetings Friday

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 10:00:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) took part in team meetings Friday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Blount missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but has reportedly been at team headquarters on both days. Given his lack of practice time this week, he could see his snaps scaled back in Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans, although he is a good bet to remain the team's goal-line back and score at least once if he plays. Continue to monitor this situation, but it appears for now he has a good shot at being active.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount sits again

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 08:50:42 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) is out of practice again Thursday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It's not time to push the panic button yet. Blount had a fabulous season with 18 touchdowns, but the Patriots could go a different route in any given week. Also, Dion Lewis (knee) is healthy. Blount isn't a safe RB1 against the Houston Texans this weekend.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount does not practice

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 13:41:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Blount should be able to play in the Divisional Round playoff game as long as he can recover from his illness. He will receive most of the carries against the Houston Texans and can be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount played well against HOU

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 08:04:46 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had 24 rushes for 105 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: He did that while J.J. Watt (back) was still active, but the Pats were without Tom Brady during his suspension and Dion Lewis (knee). So Blount may or may not have the same kind of workload in this playoff game. Houston was a top-five defense containing opposing RBs in fantasy the last five weeks of the season. Blount will be a better play as an RB2.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount providing balance

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 20:58:50 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount set career highs with 299 carries, 1,161 yards and an NFL-high 18 touchdowns this season, and the Patriots ran the ball 45.6 percent of the time, their highest percentage since 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been much more than a short-yardage back this season, but handling the goal-line carries for a high-scoring offense is a big part of his appeal. He has a safe floor and plenty of upside and should be one of the better running back plays throughout the playoffs.
