LeGarrette Blount: Could be a fit with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount could be a good fit with the Giants as a complement to Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen (triceps), SNY.TV.com reports.

Coming off a 2016 campaign in which he ran for 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns -- albeit on 3.9 yards per carry -- Blount remains unsigned through the first 10 days of free agency. His production largely is viewed as a product of the Patriots offense, which provided Blount with a plethora of goal-line carries and clock-killing work. While a return to New England isn't out of the question, the Patriots did recently sign Rex Burkhead to a one-year, $3 million contract to join a backfield that also includes James White and Dion Lewis (hamstring). There may still be room for Blount in that picture, as Burkhead, Lewis and White are all smaller backs with pass-catching skills. Other teams that could be in the market for a power runner include the Giants, Packers, Buccaneers and Raiders.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Gains 31 yards, fumbles in Super Bowl LI win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount gained 31 yards on 11 carries and lost a fumble in the Patriots' 34-28 overtime victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

Blount's most prominent play was a dubious one, as he had the ball ripped out by Falcons safety Deion Jones on the second play of the second quarter, giving Atlanta possession at its own 29-yard line. That turnover eventually resulted in a Devonta Freeman five-yard touchdown run, and the Patriots used Blount sparingly after that point. The scarcity of touches also came as a result of the four-possession deficit that New England found itself facing early into the third quarter, a scenario that largely froze Blount out of the action due to his minimal role in the passing game. An unrestricted free agent after playing on a one-year, $1 million contract in 2016, it remains to be seen if Blount will be brought back to serve as the team's primary two-down back.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Finds pay dirt in AFC championship win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and a touchdown, and caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 36-17 AFC Championship win over the Steelers.

Blount was a much bigger part of the game plan after playing second fiddle to Dion Lewis with only eight touches against the Texans last week. The 30-year-old veteran scored his team's lone rushing touchdown from one yard out in the third quarter for his 19th rushing score in 18 games. Finding running room in the Super Bowl won't be easy against a Falcons defense that hasn't allowed more than 34 yards on the ground to any non-quarterback this postseason.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Limited to eight touches in divisional-round win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount carried just eight times for 31 yards in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round victory over the Texans.

The bruising back had been removed from the injury report on Friday after missing the prior two practices with an illness, yet still ceded the majority of backfield work to Dion Lewis on the night. Blount did get a goal-line opportunity late in the first half, but was stuffed for no gain at the one-yard line. Blount then saw his last two carries on New England's final possession, and he managed to rip off an 18-yard gain to the Texans' 47-yard line that took the clock down to the two-minute warning. Saturday's usage may have simply been a case of the Patriots opting to play it safe with one of their most valuable commodities, and Blount could therefore be back to a much more customary workload in next Sunday's conference championship.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Off the injury report
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount (illness) has been removed from the Patriots' injury report in advance of Saturday night's playoff game against the the Texans, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

The Patriots' bye week has helped the team enter the weekend in solid shape, health-wise. Blount, who led the NFL this past season with 18 rushing scores, is thus in line to serve as the Patriots' top power back Saturday, as usual, which gives him upside in TD-heavy formats even though he's likely to share carries with Dion Lewis, who has logged 45 rushing attempts over the squad's last three games.
