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.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount not guaranteed roster spot

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 08:44:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has struggled to get to the corner on off-tackle runs and has only nine carries for 17 yards through two preseason games, leading Matt Lombardo of NJ.com to conclude Blount may be among the team's cuts this summer.

Fantasy Tip: In Blount's defense, running between the tackles is his strong suit because he lacks the speed now to get to the edge consistently. Having said that, he just has not looked very good this summer in general. His ability to convert in short yardage and at the goal line may save him, but the Eagles would probably be better off by admitting their mistake and moving on. He's obviously a very risky RB3 in fantasy.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount held in check

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 19:54:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for eight yards on five carries in the preseason game against Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 17. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will be the main ball carrier for the Eagles this season and probably will not be used much in the passing game. He probably should be considered a No. 3 running back in standard leagues because of his touchdown potential. He will not have as much value in point-per-reception leagues.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount unimpressive so far

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 19:49:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount "hasn't exactly stood out" during training camp so far, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Fantasy Tip: McLane notes Blount's skill set is one better suited for games than practices, but it is a bit concerning he isn't distinguishing himself from the Eagles' runners in some way, shape or form. Blount is the heavy favorite for early-down and goal-line work, but owners would be wise to view him as no more than a low-end RB3, especially considering he figures to have next to no role in the passing game.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount returns to practice

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 06:18:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount (personal) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 4, after missing the entire week due to personal reasons.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has touchdown potential, but he's not expected to have as big of a carry volume than in years passed. He's a high-end RB3 candidate with some bust potential.
