Eagles | LeGarrette Blount halted in his tracks

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:52:09 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed seven times for just 12 yards in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Blount hasn't been the same since the team acquired Jay Ajayi, and he even looks to be behind Corey Clement in the pecking order for touches in the Philly backfield now. He is only worth a look as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point of the season.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount heads backfield

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 18:10:29 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for a team-high 97 yards on 15 carries and lost a fumble in a 31-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has led the Eagles in carries in each of the past two games, and it doesn't seem like the arrival of Jay Ajayi is going to hurt his fantasy value too much. He is a serviceable RB3.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount totals 13 rushes

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:59:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was used as a hammer to change-of-pace backs Corey Clement, Jay Ajayi and Kenjon Barner. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry, and he ripped off a 30-yard run in this one. However, Blount remains more of a low-end RB2 in standard fantasy formats heading into Week 12 against the Bears. He has lesser value in PPR leagues since he doesn't really ever catch the ball.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount to remain the starter?

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 10:58:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount will remain the starting running back despite the addition of Jay Ajayi, according to vice president of football operations Howie Roseman.

Fantasy Tip: Common sense would suggest this is a temporary stance while Ajayi learns the playbook, as the Eagles did not spend a fourth-round pick to upgrade the position only to sit him behind what they already had. Ajayi may not reach the fantasy heights he achieved with the Miami Dolphins last year, but his new situation is much better from a fantasy perspective than the one he is leaving this year. Owners should probably bench Ajayi this week and be ready to start him again following the team's Week 10 bye.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount likely to stay

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 08:38:25 -0700

Even with the acquisition of RB Jay Ajayi from the Miami Dolphins, the Philadelphia Eagles are not likely to move RB LeGarrette Blount at the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Blount's role figures to change with the team, and it won't be for the better in terms of stats. Philadelphia went out and upgraded its running game because the injury to RB Darren Sproles put Blount in a position to gain yards, and he couldn't fulfill that promise.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount scores late TD

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 16:27:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 48 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added a four-yard reception on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Blount isn't crushing it like he did in 2016 when he led the league with 18 rushing scores, but he is rolling along with 4.7 yards per carry on his 100 rushes so far this season. That's slightly over his career average of 4.4 yards per tote. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in all formats heading into Week 9 against the Broncos.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount bottled up on MNF

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 21:17:27 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount managed to pick up a season-low 29 rushing yards on 14 carries in the team's Week 7 game Monday, Oct. 23, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: A disappointing game for sure -- and it's also severely disappointing that he only has one touchdown on the year -- but owners shouldn't be thinking about giving up on Blount. The Eagles are one of the league's highest-scoring offenses, and as long as the former Patriot continues to lead the backfield in carries, he should start to come through for owners much sooner than later.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount hard to bring down in 2017

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 10:51:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount is averaging 4.9 yards after contact per carry through six games in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: To put that number into some context, only eight running backs are averaging at least 4.9 yards per carry so far. Carson Wentz's accelerated maturation process as well as the upgraded receiving corps are among the factors contributing to Blount's ability to not face loaded boxes, and it helps he is getting a lot of work with the Eagles holding the lead late in games against tired defenses. Blount isn't scoring enough touchdowns to be considered a RB2 in PPR, but he is making for a fine flex option.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount pounds for 67 yards

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 22:02:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount registered 14 carries for 67 yards (4.8 YPC) during the team's win over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: In three of the last four games, Blount has carried between 12 and 14 times and gained between 67 and 74 yards, so it appears we've found his sweet spot. He added a two-point conversion against the Panthers, but he only has two touchdowns this year after scoring 18 times a season ago. He's best used as a flex.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount rushes for 74 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:44:09 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Blount will continue to receive most of the rushing attempts as long as he stays healthy. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues next week.
