Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to carry the load?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:01:44 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is going to have the opportunity to show the team what he can be, running backs coach Ivan Fears said Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Dion Lewis on the mend and Tom Brady suspended, New England could lean on Blount and the power running game early in the season. If everything falls into place, Blount could be a useful RB3, but don't plan to rely on him as a fantasy starter.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount avoids PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:11:40 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip), who missed all of the spring session due to a hip injury, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and appears ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Blount might be fighting for his roster spot in training camp and the preseason. If he can make the roster he is a decent RB4 or RB5 for depth, but avoid him outside of the later rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount on the bubble?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:51:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's (hip) roster spot isn't a given, but there shouldn't be any issues if he returns from his season-ending hip injury and runs hard.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has RB5 luster in fantasy, but the Patriots tend to feature different running backs in different matchups. He has had big performances in the past and is worth taking a shot on late.

Patriots | Key Patriots absent Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:17:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), RB Dion Lewis (knee), WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are infamous for their vague injury reports and resting of players. Obviously they're going to take caution with the players listed above, though. As long as none of these guys suffer any setbacks this offseason, they should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Edelman and Gronk should both be viewed as fantasy starters at their respective positions, with more value in PPR formats. Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy, while Blount has RB3 potential if he, too, can keep his health. Amendola is the biggest injury risk; he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Patriots | More on LeGarrette Blount's contract

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 12:38:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's one-year deal is worth up to $2 million -- $1 million in base salary and bonuses and $1 million in incentives, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Blount further clouds an already packed Patriots' backfield. Dion Lewis will be the primary running back when he's healthy, though. Blount could vulture a few touchdowns in 2016, but he's no more than a flex play, if that.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount re-ups for one year

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 09:48:18 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount signed a one-year deal Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Blount returns to a backfield that doesn't have a lot of certainty. Dion Lewis (knee) is returning from a torn ACL, and he emerged as the lead back before he got hurt. Blount will have to share the load with him and James White, which makes Blount a risk at anything more than an RB4.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount re-signs with Pats

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 09:01:56 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) re-signed with the New England Patriots Tuesday, April 12, on an undisclosed deal.

Fantasy Tip: Blount returns to a crowded backfield with questions. The way the team uses its backs, it's almost anyone's guess as to who will be featured against which opponent. Blount still has RB3 potential, but he's safer as an RB4 with Dion Lewis (knee) returning and James White still there.

NFL | LeGarrette Blount good to go

Sat, 12 Mar 2016 12:51:17 -0800

Former New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) is 100% healthy after suffering a chipped bone in his hip last season. Blount never underwent surgery and is good to go for organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: He's good to go as long as someone signs him, that is. The days of Blount running for 100 or more yards and multiple touchdowns may be behind him, but he's still good enough to score at least a handful of touchdowns in one season. His fantasy value will be more specifically gauged once we know where he's playing next.

Patriots | New England could eye RBs in free agency

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 18:32:50 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount and the team have shown mutual interest in a new contract, according to a source. Negotiations between the two sides are still in the "infant stages".

Fantasy Tip: Blount is unlikely to draw much interest on the free-agent market and finished last season on the Reserved/Injured List with a hip injury that didn't require surgery. Expect the Pats to move on from the 250-pound bruiser, who would be a RB3 at best if he returns to New England.
