LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 13 beatdown of the Rams.
Almost all of Blount's production came on the first drive, where he rushed three times for 55 yards alone, including a 43-yard scoring sprint. Rather than put the ball in Blount's belly in clock-killing mode, the Patriots kept throwing short passes to the likes of Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell. Blount obviously still paid Week 13 fantasy dividends. He'll be a tougher sell against Baltimore's stout front in Week 14. Dec 4 - 4:19 PM

LeGarrette Blount racked up 71 yards on 11 carries and was unable to catch his lone target Sunday in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Jets.

He and Dion Lewis logged the same number of carries in the first half (four each). Blount was a little more involved after halftime, but not by leaps and bounds. His 23-yard rush with 1:32 left in the fourth quarter allowed New England to run out the clock. Blount has averaged a sensational 6.37 yards per carry over his last two contests but hasn’t scored in either game. The NFL’s rushing touchdown leader will be safe to fire up as an RB2 next week at home against Los Angeles.
Nov 27 - 9:16 PM

LeGarrette Blount rumbled to 124 yards on 16 carries Sunday in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the 49ers.

As usual, he was not targeted in the passing game. Blount set the tone with a bruising 44-yard run on his second carry of the afternoon. The Patriots went away from Blount for a while but went back to him in a big way while trying to kill clock in the fourth quarter. Blount had a couple of goal-line carries on the Patriots’ final possession but couldn’t capitalize on either of them. Fantasy owners were probably hoping for a touchdown or two but Blount was still highly productive against the Niners’ non-existent run defense. Blount will maintain RB2 status next week against the division-rival Jets.
Nov 20 - 8:21 PM

LeGarrette Blount had 21 carries for 69 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 10 loss to Seattle.

Blount converted on both his goal line chances in the first half. He scored his third touchdown on New England’s opening drive of the second, hitting a 13-yard run down the left sideline. There’s not much floor to Blount’s game between the 20s, but his volume and red-zone role are good enough to make him a matchup-proof RB2. Blount will take an NFL-leading 12 TDs into a Week 11 matchup with the 49ers.
Nov 14 - 12:00 AM

LeGarrette Blount collected 43 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries Sunday in the Patriots' Week 8 win over the Bills.

Who would have guessed that Blount would be leading the league in rushing touchdowns at the season’s halfway point? Blount made that crazy pipe dream a reality by punching in a one-yarder late in the third quarter. It was his ninth score of the season. Blount saw most of his work in the second half as the Patriots featured the pass early but started running after they built a huge lead. While the Patriots haven’t leaned quite as heavily on Blount since Tom Brady’s return, he’s still getting plenty of use and nearly all of the goal-line work. He’ll be an RB2 against Seattle after the bye week.
Oct 30 - 4:54 PM

LeGarrette Blount turned 24 carries into 127 yards and two touchdowns and added one catch for seven yards Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.

Blount set the tone with 13 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown in the first half. His TD came on a three-yard scamper early in the second quarter. Blount kept the engine running in the second half by contributing his longest run of the day on a 25-yard burst midway through the third quarter. He capped the outing with another touchdown early in the fourth quarter, this time punching it in from five yards. Blount has already established a new career-high in touchdowns with eight, which puts him in a three-way tie with David Johnson and Melvin Gordon for the league lead. He’ll be in play as an RB2 next week against a Buffalo run defense that just allowed 214 yards to Jay Ajayi.
Oct 23 - 8:17 PM

LeGarrette Blount (hip) has been removed from the Patriots' injury report.

Blount played through his hip issue the last two weeks. His role has diminished with Tom Brady back, with James White playing ahead of him on Sunday. Blount is a touchdown-dependent RB2 for Week 7.
Oct 19 - 5:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 50 yards and a touchdown Week 6 against the Bengals.

He added two catches for 20 yards. Blount played clearly behind James White, but he added 20 yards and a touchdown on late, clock-killing drive to make his fantasy line respectable. Blount is going to continue to score touchdowns, but his touch upside has taken a big hit since Tom Brady's return. He is a touchdown-or-bust RB2 moving forward.
Oct 16 - 4:58 PM

LeGarrette Blount (hip), Martellus Bennett (ankle) and Julian Edelman (foot) will all start for the Patriots today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After being listed as questionable, they are all expected to play against Cincinnati. The Patriots played Tom Brady's first post-suspension game at full throttle, using no-huddle hurry-up packages deep into a blowout, so another high-scoring offensive attack would be unsurprising.
Oct 16 - 5:39 AM

LeGarrette Blount (hip) is questionable for Week 6 against the Bengals.

We apologize for clogging your feed with Patriots injury updates. Blount was listed as questionable last week but still logged 18 carries against the Browns. We'd expect a similar workload this week against Cincinnati. Blount doesn't catch passes but his goal-line presence keeps him in the RB2 conversation.
Oct 14 - 4:54 PM

LeGarrette Blount (hip) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Pats like to limit Blount's reps. He will be good to go as an RB2 against the Bengals.
Oct 13 - 4:41 PM

LeGarrette Blount (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Blount was limited for most of last week but still registered 37 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries Sunday against Cleveland. We're guessing he'll be fine for Week 6 against Cincinnati. Even with Tom Brady back, Blount is still worthy of weekly RB2 consideration.
Oct 12 - 4:54 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Browns.

Blount owners are lucky they got the touchdown they did, as he was stuffed on three other goal-line carries. Bizarrely, the Pats also moved away from the run after building a big early lead. Blount was an unpredictable RB2 last season, and appears to be reverting to his 2015 form with Tom Brady back under center. Blount will have big games, but they're much harder to predict with maestro Brady conducting the offense.
Oct 9 - 5:39 PM

LeGarrette Blount is active for Week 5 at Cleveland.

Blount was limited in a hip injury all week, but beat writers were never concerned about his status. He'll be a decent bet for a touchdown against the Browns.
Oct 9 - 11:42 AM

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss expects LeGarrette Blount's (hip, questionable) role to shrink with Tom Brady back.

"The Patriots enter the week using a designed run on 48 percent of their plays," Reiss said. "Last year, with Brady playing every snap, they were at 35 percent. So look for that number to dip." Even though he will certainly see fewer carries, Blount has scored 16 touchdowns in his last 24 games with the Patriots, playoffs included. He will remain a solid RB2 if healthy.
