LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 56 yards in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Bills on Monday night.
He also caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards. Blount was stuffed early and often and headed into halftime with five yards on five carries. He came out in the third quarter and broke off a strong 17-yard run off the edge, but overall, the Bills did a pretty good job containing him. As a whole, the Buffalo defense played really well Monday night. Unfortunately for them, the offense stunk up the joint. Blount will again be an RB1 with big scoring upside Week 12 at the Broncos.

LeGarrette Blount rushed 19 times for 66 yards and one touchdown in the Patriots' Week 10 win over the Giants.

He also caught both of his pass-game targets for 11 yards. Blount handled 19-of-21 running-back carries for the Patriots in the first game without Dion Lewis. As many suspected, James White and Brandon Bolden were non-factors. Blount had several opportunities for touchdowns, but was stuffed a number of times inside the 10-yard line, converting just one one-yard score. Due to his significant touchdown upside, Blount will be an RB1 the rest of the way and against the Bills next Monday night.
Nov 15 - 8:05 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 29 times for 129 yards and a touchdown Week 9 against the Redskins.

Blount took control of the running game in the second quarter and rumbled through the Redskins defense all game. His day could have been bigger, but he was tackled on the one-yard line a play before getting stuffed at the goal line. With Dion Lewis dealing with a potentially serious knee injury, Blount has a good chance to beat his 196-894-10 pace. Blount will be a high-end RB2 next week against the Giants.
Nov 8 - 4:09 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 17 times for 72 yards in New England's Week 8 win over the Dolphins.

He added a two-yard reception. Blount out-touched Dion Lewis 18-11, but got out-gained 112-74. Blount's touches were evenly distributed between the somewhat competitive first half and out-of-hand second. The Patriots should try to establish their ground game against the Redskins' collapsing run defense in Week 9, leaving Blount on the RB2 radar.
Oct 30 - 12:01 AM

LeGarrette Blount was a non-factor in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets, rushing three times for -3 yards.

The Patriots decided the air was their best means of moving the ball against the Jets' fierce defense, and Tom Brady finished as their leading rusher. Blount ceded only two carries to third-down back James White, but one of them came from the Jets' two-yard line. The run should be a bigger part of the Pats' game plan in Week 8 against the Dolphins. Blount will be a low-end RB2 for Thursday Night Football.
Oct 25 - 5:23 PM

LeGarrette Blount had 16 carries for 93 yards and two total touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 6 win over the Colts.

Blount got the first receiving touchdown of his career on an 11-yard fourth-quarter pass. He continued to have success between-the-tackles against the Colts and showed good power on his 38-yard rushing TD. Blount played fewer snaps than Dion Lewis, but closed out the game in the second half. Blount will be a gameflow-dependent RB2 in Week 7 against the Jets.
Oct 19 - 12:37 AM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 74 yards in New England's Week 5 win over the Cowboys.

Blount played closer for the Patriots in a snoozefest of a game, with 10 of his carries coming after halftime. 34 of his yards came on one fourth quarter tote. Blount's role varies week to week with the Patriots' game plan, but he's a top-30 option at running back. Dion Lewis is the better fantasy bet in the Pats' backfield.
Oct 11 - 8:04 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 78 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' 51-17, Week 3 stomping of the Jaguars.

Blount didn't see the field until midway through the second quarter, but predictably filled the clock-killer role for the Patriots' offense, playing a much bigger role than he did in his Week 2 debut. The Jaguars made Blount look like Bo Jackson, as he also added a 14-yard reception. All three of Blount's touchdowns came from one yard out. Dion Lewis is still starting for the Patriots and playing a ton of snaps, but this is the role Blount will likely fill as the goal-line back and clock killer. New England is running a ton of empty sets, spreading defenses out with no running back. The Patriots are 3-0 heading into their bye week.
Sep 27 - 4:20 PM

According to ESPN Boston, "word is" LeGarrette Blount will play a bigger role in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Blount was limited to seven snaps in Week 2 after missing the NFL opener due to a suspension. A bigger role might not mean much for Week 3 considering how little Blount played in last week's win over the Bills, but it would make some sense for the Patriots to try to get their power-running game rolling against the Jaguars. They could have a big lead in the second half, and Blount is a better fit for "closer" work than pint-sized scatback Dion Lewis.
Sep 25 - 3:57 PM

LeGarrette Blount disappointed fantasy owners with just two carries for four yards in the Patriots' Week 2 win over the Bills.

Classic Belichick. Fantasy owners assumed Blount would see most of New England’s early-down work, yet he didn’t see the field until the second quarter. Blount played sparingly after that and was ultimately out-touched by Dion Lewis 13 to two. The Patriots came out throwing and never really stopped. Blount could bounce back next week against a listless Jacksonville squad, but he might not. Such is life in New England’s Russian roulette backfield.
Sep 20 - 5:31 PM

Patriots activated RB LeGarrette Blount from suspension.

Blount should dominate early-down carries in Week 2, with Dion Lewis remaining the pass-game back. The Patriots waived LB Eric Martin in a corresponding move.
Sep 12 - 8:05 PM

LeGarrette Blount's one-game suspension is over.

The Patriots have been given a roster exemption which expires on Saturday, meaning they will have to make a cut elsewhere to put Blount on the active roster. Dion Lewis looked good on Thursday night, but no competition emerged for Blount in the big-back role in New England's offense. He should dominate early-down and goal-line work moving forward.
Sep 12 - 9:16 AM

LeGarrette Blount had another poor game Thursday against the Giants, tallying just 24 yards on 10 carries.

The fact that Blount played at all was a bit strange. Some might see it as a red flag, though we’re chalking it up to the usual Bill Belichick shenanigans. Blount had a dismal preseason, averaging 2.27 yards per carry on 30 rushing attempts. The one positive is that the Patriots are starting to use him more in the passing game, though one of his drops Thursday led to an interception. Blount is suspended for Week 1 but will be a back-end RB2 when he returns.
Sep 3 - 10:37 PM

LeGarrette Blount had seven carries for 29 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game.

While Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden shared time with the Tom Brady group, Blount was the lead back when Jimmy Garoppolo entered to begin the second half. It's possible Blount played with Garoppolo in anticipation of them opening the season together. Knowing Bill Belichick, it's also possible the Patriots' tailback position has been opened to competition, and Blount is getting pushed by Gray. We don't anticipate any of the Pats' backs truly being trustworthy in re-draft leagues this year, but we do still believe Blount has the best shot.
Aug 28 - 10:46 PM

LeGarrette Blount totaled just 15 yards on 13 carries in Saturday's preseason win over the Saints.

Blount was held out of last week's preseason opener with a knee injury and was understandably rusty on Saturday. His longest gain went for six yards. Despite the poor outing, Blount is still New England's unquestioned workhorse and the favorite for goal line carries. We'll see if he can bounce back in next week's dress rehearsal against the Panthers.
