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.

LeGarrette Blount (hip, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

Beat reports expect Blount to play at Cleveland, but we'll have to check back Sunday morning for his official status. The Patriots' backup running backs are James White and D.J. Foster. Brandon Bolden has been ruled out.
Oct 7 - 3:58 PM

According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, the Patriots "do not sound concerned" about LeGarrette Blount's (hip) availability for Week 5 at the Browns.

Blount was absent for Wednesday's practice and has a recent history of hip issues, but we've gotten good news on Blount the past two days. He got in a limited practice Thursday, and there hasn't been a ton of concern surrounding him. Blount has monster touchdown upside and remains a strong RB1/2.
Oct 7 - 2:03 PM

Updating an earlier item, LeGarrette Blount (hip) was present for Thursday's practice.

Reporter Phil Perry said Blount was absent for the start of practice, but then updated that he was indeed in attendance. He got in a "limited" session. The Pats are just managing Blount's reps after a workhorse first four weeks. He'll be ready to go as an RB1 against the Browns.
Oct 6 - 1:58 PM

LeGarrette Blount (hip) wasn't seen at the start of Thursday's practice.

He was limited on Wednesday so this would be a downgrade if Blount is indeed absent. We'll know more when the Patriots release their injury report later today. We're not panicking yet but it would certainly put fantasy owners at ease if Blount participates in at least some portion of practice either today or Friday. He has a mouthwatering matchup against the winless Browns in Week 5.
Oct 6 - 1:07 PM

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

Blount has a history of hip issues, missing the final month of last year and all of OTAs. With this being the Patriots, there likely won't be any updates on his status until Friday. Blount was held in check against Buffalo, but has a plus matchup with the Browns this week.
Oct 5 - 5:09 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 54 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for four yards in the Patriots' Week 4 shutout loss to Buffalo.

The Bills dominated first-half time of possession and jumped out to an early 13-0 lead, rendering Blount a Week 4 fantasy disappointment. He continued to out-snap and out-touch James White (9 touches), but several red-zone miscues by the Jacoby Brissett-quarterbacked offense prevented Blount from scoring. He'll get a better matchup in Week 5 at Cleveland. Blount remains an every-week RB2 in fantasy with every-week RB1 upside.
