Summary

In his single season in Philadelphia, Blount showed few signs of decline while on the way to winning his fourth-career Super Bowl. He matched his career average with 4.4 yards per carry. As part of a committee backfield, he touched the ball just 181 times and failed to make a fantasy impact due to scoring just three touchdowns. Blount has always been touchdown-dependent to make a fantasy impact due to his lack of involvement in the passing game. He has just 54 career catches in 8 NFL seasons (6.8 receptions per year). At age 31 and with rookie second-rounder Kerryon Johnson ticketed for a major role, Blount is not going to see enough carries to be fantasy-relevant unless he can score double-digit touchdowns (which he has done just once previously in his career). At this point in his career, Blount is only worth a late pick in deeper leagues. Unless Kerryon Johnson is injured or massively underwhelms, it is hard to see Blount having any fantasy relevance.
