Summary

The New England Patriots didn't bring in a big back to compete with LeGarrette Blount, so he'll continue to grind down defenses on early downs and in short yardage situations this year for the team. Despite missing four games, Blount had his second best seasons as a Patriot, totaling 4.3 yards per carry on his way to a 703 yard total. That's not bad considering the Patriots threw twice as often as they ran in 2015. Also, nobody came close to Blount's total carries (165), with Brandon Bolden the next most frequent runner (63 carries). Blount will get most of the work this year if he's healthy, but will be limited by overall role and lack of opportunity compared to other lead backs. That limitation keeps him more in the range of a backup with upside. (May 20)

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount avoids PUP list (Mon Jul 25, 10:11 PM) - New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip), who missed all of the spring session due to a hip injury, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and appears ready for training camp.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount on the bubble? (Wed Jul 20, 10:51 AM) - New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's (hip) roster spot isn't a given, but there shouldn't be any issues if he returns from his season-ending hip injury and runs hard.

Our View: Doesn't it feel like Blount is on the bubble almost every year? He'll continue to grind down defenses with his powerful rushing style, but Blount is not as fantasy relevant as Dion Lewis. Expect the Patriots to lean on their rushing attack over the first four games of the year while Tom Brady is suspended. That could mean more work for Blount. We see him as a RB4 for fantasy owners in 2016.
