LeGarrette Blount worth prioritizing on waivers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount is highlighted as the top priority for Fantasy owners looking to add a back in Jamey Eisenberg's waiver-wire column this week.

Blount rushed for 78 yards on 12 carries with a pair of touchdowns against a tough Lions' defense in Week 12. However, he played just 21 percent of the team's snaps, and the effective Jonas Gray still lurks as a possible spoiler, depending on the whims of Bill Bellichek.

Jamey identifies Blount as a possible starting Fantasy option down the stretch, but an inconsistent workload could frustrate his Fantasy owners.

LeGarrette Blount makes Jonas Gray an afterthought
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

This take on both LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray comes with an important caveat: Both running backs play for the Patriots, who are coached by Bill Belichick, who has proven time and time again that he'll do whatever he wants, regardless of conventional wisdom or media pressure. So if he decides Gray has learned his lesson for showing up late to practice Friday and turns back to him as the team's primary ball carrier Week 13 at Green Bay, it would come as a surprise to no one.

But I'm certainly not counting on it.

Facing the league's No. 1 run defense, Blount was really good Week 12 against Detroit, rushing 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns only three days after signing with the Patriots. Granted, he was with them last year and knows the offense, but still, bonus points for the quick turnaround.

Belichick loved giving him the ball at the goal line last year and clearly doesn't owe Gray anything. Gray was clearly a right-place-at-the-right-time guy, getting a starter's workload in an offense where he could do no wrong only because Stevan Ridley suffered a season-ending injury. And he blew it.

Let's hold on to him one more week just to be sure, but you wouldn't want to start Gray in Week 13. And if Blount is available in your league, pick him up.

LeGarrette Blount barrels into end zone twice in Patriots debut
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

LeGarrette Blount barreled his way into the end zone twice in his first game back with the Patriots in his team's 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

Coach Bill Belichick benched Gray in favor of Blount on Sunday and the former Pittsburgh running back did not disappoint. Blount broke free for a 3-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, followed by a 1-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter when the game was well in hand. He finished with a team-high 12 carries for 78 yards and two touchdowns. He was not targeted in the passing game.

LeGarrette Blount will be active for Patriots on Sunday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount will be active Sunday against the Lions, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Blount is back with the Patriots following his release from the Steelers on Tuesday.

It is unknown how much work Blount will receive, but fellow running back Jonas Gray is also expected to be active Week 12, despite being sent home from practice Friday because he showed up late to the team's facility. ESPN is reporting Gray will not start Sunday.

Report: Patriots send Jonas Gray home after arriving late
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back Jonas Gray overslept, causing him to miss Friday's practice session, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports. According to the report, Gray didn't wake up in time for practice after his phone died. He showed up late to Gillette Stadium, but was immediately sent home by Bill Belichick.

Gray's status now appears a bit uncertain after the incident, considering the team signed LeGarrette Blount, who is familiar with Belichick's system, on Thursday.

Earlier in the season, Belichick sent star cornerback Darrelle Revis home for being late to practice during a blizzard, per the Boston Globe. Like Gray, Revis also overslept. However, Revis apologized to the team and was able to play the following week against the Bears.

Gray has texted his teammates to apologize and plans to meet with Belichick and the rest of his teammates later in the day to apologize, per the report.
