Week 3: at Carolina Panthers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. LeVeon Bell has started out 2014 with a boom, posting 32/168/1 rushing with 11/136/0 receiving so far this season (making him the fourth-best fantasy running back through two weeks). LeGarrette Blount hasn't siphoned off too much action from Bell (7/14/1 rushing with two targets for zero receptions) but the few touches he's handled included a TD - he'll swipe the occasional score going forwards if things stay as they are currently. The Panthers' rush D held starting running back Doug Martin to 9/9/0 rushing in Week One, and though they eventually allowed 17/102/0 to the Buccaneers, half of that total came on one 54-yard scamper by Jorvorskie Lane - otherwise, the Panthers basically shut down the Buccaneers' backs in Week One. Detroit was held to 18/70/0 rushing in Week 2, and the Panthers now rank sixth in the NFL this year averaging 86 rushing yards allowed per game, with zero rushing scores surrendered to date. Carolina's rush D is outstanding, friends. This is a tough matchup for Bell (and his sidekick Blount).

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs CLE (4 / 6 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Blount was relatively quiet in this game. He managed only 6 total yards on a paltry 4 carries for the game; however, he was on the field for most of the goalline opportunities, which coincides with preseason reports out of Pittsburgh. Blount was targeted once in the passing game on a wheel route early in the first quarter, although Roethlisberger overthrew him in the endzone.

2014 Week 2 vs BAL (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

LeGarrette Blount was on the field for only 13% (8 out of 60) of the Steelers' snaps for this game and was a general afterthought in the offense. As the goal line running back, Blount's value is entirely contingent upon the Steelers getting deep into the redzone, which they did not accomplish in this entire game. Thus, Blount saw minimal action and was a non-factor for fantasy purposes.
