Patriots | LeGarrette Blount battling Tyler Gaffney?

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 10:42:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is "likely" battling RB Tyler Gaffney the club's final running back spot. RBs Dion Lewis and James White "appear to be locked in" as the receiving running backs, while RB Brandon Bolden "figures" to have a spot on the roster thanks to his role on special teams. Blount and Gaffney are competing for the "between-the-tackles kind of role."

Fantasy Tip: Due to Blount's proven track record, you have to believe he has the leg up in this competition, though it's also interesting that Gaffney was able to take an entire series worth of carries in the first half of New England's most recent preseason game with the first-team offense. No matter who emerges from this battle, though, they may not hold much fantasy value, given the amount of pieces regularly being used out of the Patriots backfield, as well as Bill Belichick's sometimes unpredictable use of his running backs.

Panthers | Tyler Gaffney making good first impression

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 18:26:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Tyler Gaffney has earned praise from the coaching staff for his ability in blitz pickup and familiarity with the team's power running scheme, according to Max Henson of Panthers.com.

Fantasy Tip: While the rookie has been impressing the coaching staff, it seems unlikely Gaffney will make any kind of impact in fantasy circles without a couple of injuries. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will receive a bulk of the carries if healthy, and Mike Tolbert is the short-yardage back.
