Summary

LeGarrette Blount has had a strange NFL career. A strong rookie season in Tampa Bay was followed up by dwindling usage in his 2nd and 3rd seasons. He landed in New England in 2013 and was a part-time contributor, but the team didn't fight to keep him and Blount signed with the Steelers in 2014. He wore out his welcome immediately in Pittsburgh and was released mid-season, being added back into the Patriots fold. He continued in a part-time role for the next few years. Last season, at 30 years old and on a roster full of other talented, arguably more versatile, running backs -- Blount had a career year. The 6'1", 241-lb bruiser rushed for 1,161 yards and scored EIGHTEEN (18) rushing touchdowns for the Super Bowl champions. In spite of his heroics, the Patriots went in a different direction this offseason including the additions of Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee. Blount eventually found a new home in Philadelphia. On paper, it's an excellent fit as the Eagles had the league's smallest running backs exiting the NFL draft. Blount should fit in as a key part of a running back committee and serve as the main option on conventional 1st and 2nd down run plays, short yardage and the goal line. The one concern for fantasy owners is Blount's troubling history outside of his time in New England. Presuming he's matured (he'll turn 31 years old this season), he has an opportunity to be a fantasy-relevant commodity particularly in non-PPR leagues. (May 17)
