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)
