  Raiders | LeGarrette Blount works out    Wed Oct 16, 11:41 PM

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Lions) worked out for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Jon Gruden can't get enough power in his backfield. Consider this a small tell of what the plan will be to help the offense through injuries and uncertainty at wide receiver - more running.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson set for big role?    Fri May 25, 09:31 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount were 'no doubt' the top two running backs during OTAs Thursday, May 24, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: The Lions have been looking for a bell-cow back for a long time, but have they finally found a combination of backs who could be just as good? The team moved up to grab Johnson, and Blount is a solid short yardage back with upside. The biggest issue is what Theo Riddick does to this group. Until we see more, it's hard to go for any of these guys outside of a RB4 pick with upside. Long term, we like Johnson's Dynasty value.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah unlikely to contribute much    Fri May 18, 12:24 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount are expected to receive much of the early-down work with Theo Riddick playing a third-down role, potentially leaving Ameer Abdullah potentially as a game-day inactive or on the roster bubble, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: And what a mess this seems to be. This looks like a full-blown committee, which could limit every single back's value. We'll have to watch how this shakes out, but it looks grim for fantasy owners.

  Lions | Detroit to use committee backfield    Wed Apr 11, 01:37 PM

Detroit Lions RBs LeGarrette Blount, Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and others are expected to be used as a committee, according to head coach Matt Patricia.

Footballguys view: Patricia is a proponent of using a running back's strengths in favorable situations...but his doesn't look like a favorable situation for fantasy owners. Blount could have the most value in leagues that reward heavily for touchdowns. Riddick should continue to be the most valuable Lions RB in PPR leagues while Abdullah remains a mystery as to what he can do and be as a pro.
