Patriots | LeGarrette Blount's MRI is negative

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 13:14:11 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's (knee) MRI on his injured knee was negative and the image did not show any structural damage, according to a source. Blount ran hill sprints Monday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has a little extra time to heal since he'll be suspended for the first regular season game anyway. If he's running hill sprints he should be able to go for the second game. Blount is slated to be the Patriots' starting running back, and he has produced when called upon. He has RB2 potential, but it's safer to draft him as a RB3.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount sitting out

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 07:11:10 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Blount is expected to miss a few weeks because of a sprained medial collateral ligament. Owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be able to play again. Blount could be a middle-round option in drafts if he is ready for the regular season since he should see a majority of the carries.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has sprained MCL

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 05:09:55 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee, according to sources. Blount is expected to be ready for the beginning of the regular season, though. RBs Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden stand to receive more carries with Blount sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Remember Blount is suspended for Week 1 of the regular season, so if expectations prove ture, he'll be ready for a cushy Week 2 date with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The New England backfield is often tricky to project from week to week, but Blount should still be viewed as a potential third running back with the potential to be a low-end weekly starter in standard formats. It isn't out of the question to drop him down a tier in your rankings, though. Gray and Bolden are nothing more than late-round fliers, but they're worth watching over the next month, as they could be FantasyScore options early in the season. Travaris Cadet, James White and Dion Lewis are also competing for touches in the crowded backfield. Don't be surprised if Cadet has the best return for investment in seasonal PPR formats this season.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount leaves practice

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:37:54 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) left practice early Friday, Aug. 7, because of an apparent injury. Blount limped off the field and appeared to be favoring his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye out for an update on Blount's status in the near future. He could sit out the first preseason game to allow the injury to heal. He is expected to receive a majority of the carries this season and could be a middle-round option in drafts.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount practicing

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 07:10:44 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (undisclosed) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Blount started camp on the Non-Football Injury list but was able to pass his conditioning test. Blount should receive a majority of the carries this season and could be a middle-round draft choice even though he will miss the first game of the season.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount fails running test

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:59:45 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was placed on the Non-Football Injury list because he was not able to complete the conditioning test at the start of training camp. Players have to run 20 sprints of 50 yards in under eight seconds to pass the test, but Blount was only able to complete 12 reps.

Fantasy Tip: Blount likely will be activated at some point during camp when he improves his conditioning. Blount is the leading candidate to receive most of the carries this season and could be a middle-round option in drafts if he is in good shape.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount goes to NFI list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:47:36 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Blount is already suspended for the first game of the season, and he is expected to be available for the remaining 15 games. He should be the Patriots' lead back after Week 1 and is worth at least drafting as a RB3.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount suspended

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:56:07 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount has been suspended for the 2015 NFL regular-season opener.

Fantasy Tip: As it stands, there's no telling who could be the main beneficiary in Week 1 for the Patriots. Travaris Cadet will probably have the most value in point-per-reception leagues, while Jonas Gray seems like the better play from a standard scoring perspective.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has charges withdrawn

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 07:41:18 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount completed his 50 hours of community service, and his drug charge from earlier this season has been withdrawn, according to his attorney.

Fantasy Tip: Looking ahead to Sunday, Blount ($7,777; 15.5% of your cap) is a risky pick on FantasyScore when Marshawn Lynch is the same price. It's very possible the Pats use Blount to wear down the Seattle Seahawks defense. However, we'd much rather have Lynch at an equal price.

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 12:56:32 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount didn't orchestrate his release from the Pittsburgh Steelers. "You know things didn't work out as planned … So we decided to part ways. I ended up here and now I'm about to play in the Super Bowl," Blount said Tuesday, Jan. 27.
