LeGarrette Blount doesn't need offseason hip surgery.
Blount's season was cut short when he suffered a hip injury in Week 14. He was placed on injured reserve three days later, and the Patriots' running game went down the toilet. Blount will be a free agent in March. He's never had any success out of New England. The two sides will likely be interested in a new deal, but Blount isn't going to require more than $1-2 million per year. Jan 27 - 12:47 PM

Patriots placed RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) on injured reserve, ending his season.

It's a procedural move. An impending free agent, 29-year-old Blount isn't a lock to return with the Patriots.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LeGarrette Blount (hip) is done for the season.

He should be placed on injured reserve in the next 24 hours. Although Blount was averaging just 59 yards per game, it's a major blow for the Pats' injury-ravaged offense. Brandon Bolden is now the favorite to carry the mail on early downs, though perhaps Montee Ball will be promoted from the practice squad. Both coach Bill Belichick and OC Josh McDaniels praised Bolden after Sunday's win over the Texans, suggesting they indeed have faith in their longtime handyman. Bolden is worth an add as a top 20-25 runner for the final two weeks of the fantasy playoffs. As for Blount, he's headed for free agency after turning 29 earlier this month. It's not a guarantee he'll end up back in New England.

LeGarrette Blount (hip) was spotted using crutches to move around Tuesday.

Needless to say, the crutches are not a great sign for his availability this week. Brandon Bolden dominated carries after Blount exited Sunday night, and he is the more valuable side of the committee with James White. Both are risky plays even in a good matchup against the Titans.

LeGarrette Blount left Sunday night's Week 14 game against the Texans with a hip injury

Blount walked off under his own power, but is done for the night. He had 53 yards on his first 10 carries. Brandon Bolden and James White will form a committee in his place.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 09:36:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount carried the ball 13 times for 54 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

So much for Blount being an every-week RB1 in the absence of Dion Lewis. Blount only saw three second-half carries as the struggling Pats watched the Eagles rattle off 35 unanswered points. James White helped fuel the comeback effort though the Pats would ultimately come up short. Blount has seen anywhere from nine carries to 19 in the four games since Lewis went down. He’ll be a boom-or-bust RB2 against Houston in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 08:44:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount had nine carries for 27 yards in Sunday night's Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

The Patriots didn't establish a running game despite playing with a lead for most of the night. Blount had no red-zone chances and played just 27 snaps. He’ll be more of a gameflow-dependent RB2 in Week 13. Blount has been held without a touchdown in four of his last six games.

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.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 12:31:00 AM

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.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 08:05:00 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.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 04:09:00 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.
Fri, Oct 30, 2015 12:01:00 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.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 05:23:00 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.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 12:37:00 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.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 08:04:00 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.
