Blount had 24 carries for a season-high 127 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-16 win at Pittsburgh. He caught his lone target for seven yards. Blount's rushing yardage had taken a hit in the previous two games, which coincided with the return of Tom Brady, but that changed Sunday, as the power runner was highly effective, especially in the second half when he ripped of a number of chunk runs. He's been great in all formats, but especially in standard leagues with eight touchdowns on the year. He'll look to score again next week against division rival Buffalo.
Blount (hip) carried 13 times for 50 yards and a TD and caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's 35-17 win over over the Bengals. The Patriots' passing attack has been productive in the two games since QB Tom Brady returned to the lineup, but given that Blount remains the team's top power option out of the backfield, he continues to make his mark in early-down and short-yardage situations.
Blount (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Though the reintroduction of top QB Tom Brady to the New England offense has led to an added emphasis on the passing attack, Blount remains the team's top power option out of the backfield, which will enable him to continue to handle the bulk of the team's early-down and short-yardage work.
Blount (hip) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Despite the return of quarterback Tom Brady from his four-game suspension has improved the passing game, Blount is still the top running back option on an excellent offense. He gets most of his work on early downs, though he'll also get the goal-line snaps, giving him plenty of fantasy upside.
Blount (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. The Patriots' list of questionables goes 12-deep this week, but we expect Blount to be out there for Sunday's contest. While the return of top QB Tom Brady has led to added emphasis on the team's passing attack, Blount remains the Patriots' top power option out of their backfield, which puts him on track to continue to handle the team's early-down and short-yardage work.
