Eagles | LeGarrette Blount hard to bring down in 2017

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 10:51:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount is averaging 4.9 yards after contact per carry through six games in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: To put that number into some context, only eight running backs are averaging at least 4.9 yards per carry so far. Carson Wentz's accelerated maturation process as well as the upgraded receiving corps are among the factors contributing to Blount's ability to not face loaded boxes, and it helps he is getting a lot of work with the Eagles holding the lead late in games against tired defenses. Blount isn't scoring enough touchdowns to be considered a RB2 in PPR, but he is making for a fine flex option.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount pounds for 67 yards

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 22:02:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount registered 14 carries for 67 yards (4.8 YPC) during the team's win over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: In three of the last four games, Blount has carried between 12 and 14 times and gained between 67 and 74 yards, so it appears we've found his sweet spot. He added a two-point conversion against the Panthers, but he only has two touchdowns this year after scoring 18 times a season ago. He's best used as a flex.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount rushes for 74 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:44:09 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will continue to receive most of the rushing attempts as long as he stays healthy. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues next week.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount closes it out

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 19:47:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount finished with 16 carries for 136 yards, including 88 yards in the fourth quarter, in a 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: It was an encouraging outing for Blount, but he was one of three backs to receive double-digit carries. He will be a risky flex play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount fined

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:34:02 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount was fined $9,115 by the National Football League for taunting following a touchdown in Week 3's game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Blount had 12 carries for 67 yards versus the Giants after being largely ignored in the offense the week before. He should see a slightly heavier workload going forward due to the season-ending injury for Darren Sproles and is worthy of consideration as a RB3 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount shows well in win

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:26:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 12 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 win against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Blount didn't have any rush attempts, and just one touch, in Week 2. This is what fantasy owners expect from Blount, who still has two total touchdowns through three games in limited work. He remains more of a RB3 or flex play heading into Week 4 on the road against the Chargers.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount vanishes in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:48:15 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount did not have a single carry during his team's 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 17. It marked the first time since 2012 that Blount has not carried the ball in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Needless to say, Blount burned fantasy owners on Sunday. On top of a subpar outing in the first week, it may be time to ask what Blount's role is on this team. Yes, it's only two weeks into the season, but a big deal was made about getting Blount into the offense. For now, leave Blount off of all your fantasy rosters.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount passable in Week 1 start

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:33:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount ran 14 times for 46 yards in a 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The top four Eagle rushers contributed just 58 yards to the ground game. Considering Washington surrendered close to 120 yards per game last season, which was the 24th worst out of 32 teams, this could be cause for concern. For now, Blount is merely a flex player with little value.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount gets vote of confidence

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:46:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount is a "beast of a runner" and going to be "a big part of our offense," according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been the opposite of a "beast" this preseason and will be hard-pressed to be a big part of the offense given he will lose late-down work to Darren Sproles. The Eagles have repeatedly and foolishly tried to get him on the perimeter this preseason and don't figure to be playing with the same degree of positive game scripts New England enjoyed last year. Blount is going to be tough to trust as anything more than a flex this season.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount having weight issues

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 20:05:44 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has been having "weight issues" and looked "disappointing in practice," which is why it's possible he might not make the final roster.

Fantasy Tip: Despite scoring the second-most rushing touchdowns in the NFL last season, it appears Blount is not fitting in well with his new club. Even if the seven-year veteran ends up as part of the 53-man squad, it might be hard to lean on him regularly, given Philadelphia's running back situation. Darren Sproles, Donnel Pumphrey and Wendell Smallwood all figure to have a role in 2017, which will severely cap Blount's ceiling with the Eagles.
