Date:

LeGarrette Blount played 14-of-75 (19 percent) snaps Week 13 against the Seahawks.

Blount dominated the proceedings in Week 12, rushing for 97 yards while playing 47 percent of the snaps, but he was scripted out of Sunday night's game. Jay Ajayi posted his highest touch total and snap count since arriving in Philadelphia against the Seahawks, perhaps hinting the Eagles are ready to get him more involved, but Blount should also get touches in better game scripts. This likely will remain a difficult backfield to predict the rest of the season.
Dec 4 - 9:44 AM

LeGarrette Blount had eight carries for 26 yards in Week 13 against Seattle.

Blount saw fewer touches than Jay Ajayi for the first time. He struggled to get going early and fell out of the gameplan late. Blount should remain in a timeshare going forward, but Ajayi has been the better back. Blount is a touchdown-dependent RB3 for Week 14.
Dec 3 - 11:59 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 15 times for 97 yards in the Eagles' Week 12 win over Chicago.

Despite the Eagles trading a fourth-round pick for Ajayi less than a month ago, it was the Blount show on Sunday. He saw the first three carries of the game, eight in the first half, and kept getting looks despite fumbling the ball at the end of a long run in the first quarter. Blount deserved the work, as well. He had multiple long runs in the opening half and racked up 77 yards before the break. He was not quite as efficient in the second half, but he now has 37 carries in the three games since Ajayi was acquired. He will be in the FLEX conversation next week against the Seahawks.
Nov 26 - 4:21 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 11 against Dallas.

Blount led the Eagles in snaps, but wasn't effective outside of a 30-yard run. Jay Ajayi (seven carries, 91 yards) continued to outplay him on fewer touches. Blount is still the favorite for snaps, but the Eagles look like a three-man backfield going forward.
Nov 19 - 11:48 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed nine times for 37 yards in the Eagles' Week 9 win over the Broncos.

Corey Clement led the backfield in touches (13), Blount finished second, and Jay Ajayi (8) was third. Blount did give the Eagles a handful of successful clock-killing runs to help salt away the game, but his lack of versatility makes Blount the Eagles' least likely running back to maintain a role after the Week 10 bye.
Nov 5 - 5:11 PM

In response to the Eagles trading for Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount said, "I can only control what I can control."

"As far as I go," Blount added, "I'm just worried about me, what I can control and grind every day like I've been doing." Following the trade, EVP Howie Roseman said Blount was still the starting running back, but the Eagles did not give up a fourth-round pick for Ajayi to ride the bench. Blount should lead the backfield while Ajayi settles in, however, and likely will remain involved the rest of the season as part of a committee.
Nov 2 - 9:22 AM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 48 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 8 win over the 49ers.

As a heavy home favorite, Blount was one of the best bets for a touchdown this week. He delivered in the fourth quarter from 12 yards out, and the Eagles stomped the Niners 33-10. Blount caught his lone target for a gain of four yards. The concern around Blount is we never know who the coaches will choose to ride week to week. Blount will be an RB3 next week against Denver.
Oct 29 - 5:03 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for just 29 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Wendell Smallwood returned from his two-game absence with a knee injury and actually got the start in this one, seeing seven carries to Blount's three in the first half. But Blount ended up out-carrying Smallwood 11-1 after the break and got the clock-killing work. This is what we get with Blount; it's either touchdown or bust. He'll be a low-floor RB2 next week at home against the 49ers, but has multi-touchdown upside.
Oct 24 - 12:10 AM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for 67 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

Blount was also called for a personal foul, but it was a bad call. He was merely finishing a block. Blount was a freight train this evening, and frankly, deserved more work. Sluggish to begin the year, Blount has now been trucking over defenders every game since Darren Sproles got hurt, clearing 67 yards on the ground each of the past four weeks. He has only one rushing touchdown to show for it, but has solidified his RB2 value. He gets the Redskins in Week 7.
Oct 13 - 12:11 AM

LeGarrette Blount chewed up 74 yards on 14 carries Sunday in the Eagles’ Week 5 win over the Cardinals.

He led the backfield with 14 touches including 12 in the second half. Blount gained exactly half of his yards on a 37-yard burst in the third quarter. He broke to the outside on the play and found nothing but green grass until he was finally chased down by Tyrann Mathieu at Arizona’s 45-yard line. No team had rushed for 100 yards on the Cardinals before Sunday. Blount has excelled in Darren Sproles’ absence, tacking on 277 rushing yards over his last three contests. With Wendell Smallwood (knee) unlikely to play on a short week, Blount could be in for another big workload Thursday at Carolina.
Oct 8 - 5:57 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 136 yards in the Eagles' Week 4 win over the Chargers, adding a 20-yard reception.

Pretty much right down to the final drive, Blount was in a three-man rotation with Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement, though he rushed for over 100 more yards than either of his backfield mates. The highlight was a 68-yard rumble where Blount threw Desmond King into next week with a stiff arm. Blount received four goal-line carries in the fourth quarter, but couldn't convert any of them. Smallwood eventually plunged into the end zone. Today was an excellent performance, but not one that seized the day for Blount going forward. He'll remain a volatile RB3.
Oct 1 - 8:01 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 12 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Giants.

As Darren Sproles (wrist) went out early, the Eagles turned to a rotation of Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement. Blount was their most effective runner between the tackles and should remain a double-digit carry guy moving forward, playing more especially if Sproles' injury is serious. Either way, Blount will remain a risky, touchdown-dependent flex option in Week 4 against the Chargers.
Sep 24 - 5:29 PM

LeGarrette Blount played 6-of-72 snaps Week 2 against the Chiefs.

It was eight fewer than Wendell Smallwood, who got the start, and a whopping 44 fewer than Darren Sproles, who led the backfield with 12 touches. Blount's only touch came on a catch which went for zero yards. Perhaps the Eagles try to establish the run more moving forward, but Blount will not be usable in fantasy lineups until they do. He is droppable in shallow leagues.
Sep 18 - 10:07 AM

LeGarrette Blount was held without a carry in Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Blount played behind Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles. He was expected to have a reduced role, and saw only a few snaps. Blount has looked like a miscast in the Eagles' shotgun-based offense. Smallwood (three carries, four yards) didn't do anything to stand out, but Blount should continue to be avoided for Week 3.
