Patriots | LeGarrette Blount finds end zone again

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:15:08 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was not targeted in the pass game.

Fantasy Tip: Blount snapped a mini-scoring skid, as he hadn't found the end zone in either of his past two games. It was the first time this season he had back-to-back games without a visit to the end zone. He remains a must-start fantasy option in Week 14 despite facing the Baltimore Ravens and their lockdown rushing defense.

Patriots | Three Patriots RBs split snaps evenly

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:22:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 27 snaps during the team's Week 12 game, while RB James White received 26 snaps and RB Dion Lewis received 23 snaps. The Patriots ran three plays with White and Lewis on the field at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: Blount received the most carries against the New York Jets and probably will continue to be the main running option moving forward. Lewis received six carries and caught four passes, while White caught four passes and received zero carries. Blount should be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues but will not be as valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Lewis and White should be flex options for most owners.

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:57:37 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 11 times for 67 yards in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted once but did not record a reception.

Fantasy Tip: Blount failed to find the end zone in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Despite the lack of touchdowns lately, he remains a must-start RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 against Los Angeles.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 124 yards in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers, including a season-high 44-yard run.

Fantasy Tip: Blount entered the week with a league-leading 12 rushing touchdowns, but he failed to find the end zone. However, he had a solid stat line and he remains a solid fantasy option heading into Week 12 at N.Y. Jets.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to face poor rush D

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 22:14:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount will meet the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. The 49ers have allowed 180.4 rushing yards per game, worst in the NFL. The 49ers have also yielded an NFL-high 12 rushes of 20 or more yards and five scampers of 40-plus yards.

Fantasy Tip: Blount leads the NFL with 12 total touchdowns and he is certain to add to his total for fantasy owners this weekend against a porous 49ers rush D. He is a fantasy must-start in all formats for this ultra-favorable matchup.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount will play Sunday

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 07:19:35 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) will be active for Week 6's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Blount should be viewed as a touchdown-dependent RB2 option in most fantasy leagues going forward, with the Patriots expected to continue passing more often with QB Tom Brady under center.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount listed as limited

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 16:01:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Blount received 18 carries last week and probably will receive a similar amount of carries against the Cincinnati Bengals. Owners should consider Blount as a No. 2 running back at this time since the Patriots will throw more often with Tom Brady back.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount questionable

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 14:38:46 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) was one of 12 players on the team's injury report Friday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Blount's hip has been an "issue" for a while, but it hasn't kept him from ranking second in the league in carries through five weeks. Of bigger concern is the Patriots' shift in offensive philosophy with Tom Brady back under center. Blount was outsnapped by James White last week and doesn't fit well in the new offense, making him a touchdown-dependent RB2 at best going forward.
