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.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount will not require surgery

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 11:45:01 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) will not need surgery on his season-ending hip injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was lost for the season in Week 14 and placed on the Reserved/Injured List shortly thereafter. The 29-year-old, who led the Patriots in rushing with 703 yards and six touchdowns last season, will be an unrestricted free agent following the season. If New England chooses to bring him back, he should return as the early-down complement to Dion Lewis next season.

Patriots | New England likely to add at RB

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 21:06:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has the potential to be the top running back with this current group, with White and Bolden as solid backups. However, look for a rookie, and possibly a veteran running back, to be added in the offseason to provide competition.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:50:08 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Fantasy Tip: Gone are the days of Blount rushing for hundreds of yards and multiple touchdowns. The Patriots do need a ground-and-pound type of running back, but Blount may not be the answer for the future. This situation will play out over the course of the next few months, but Blount may be heading for fantasy irrelevancy.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount placed on IR

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 14:19:20 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Bolden ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and James White ($5,200, 10.4%) figure to take over primary running back duties with Blount out. Bolden should do the ground and pound while White should continue to be mainly involved in the passing game. White, especially, is worth a long look on FantasyScore this week in a PPR scoring format.
