Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Totals 51 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount rushed 12 times for 33 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona. He caught two passes for 18 yards and also lost one fumble.

While Blount started at running back, backup Zach Zenner showed himself to be the most effective early-down carrier on the roster not named Kerryon Johnson (knee). This is bad news for Blount's future workloads even if Johnson continues to miss time, as Zenner probably deserves to be a bigger part of the offense. Throw in Theo Riddick's usage on passing downs, and Blount could struggle to log a significant number of touches down the stretch of the season. However, Detroit has two tough matchups on deck starting with the Bills' second-ranked defense (294.2 yards per game) in Week 15 and then the Vikings fifth-ranked defense (327.8) in Week 16.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Serviceable production as lead back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount rushed 16 times for 61 yards and failed to come up with his only target in the Lions' 30-16 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

Blount helmed the Detroit backfield for the second straight game in the absence of Kerryon Johnson (knee), and although he couldn't quite duplicate his success from Thanksgiving Day, he still turned in a solid stat line overall. Blount was unsurprisingly uninvolved in the passing game, limiting his overall upside. With Johnson having a chance to return for a Week 14 battle against the Cardinals, Blount could potentially find himself back to a rather scant workload in that contest.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Set for key role again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount will have another chance to lead the Detroit rushing attack with Kerryon Johnson (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Blount was surprisingly productive in the first game without Johnson, taking 19 carries for 88 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-16 loss to the Bears last Thursday. He'll now face a much softer run defense that's yielding 5.2 yards per carry, though volume could be an issue if the superb Rams offense leaves the Lions with a multi-score deficit -- a scenario that would favor more snaps for passing-down back Theo Riddick.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Finds end zone twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount rushed 19 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns and brought in his only target for 15 yards in the Lions' 23-16 loss to the Bears on Thursday.

Blount was a bright spot for the Lions in the disappointing home loss, spearheading the ground attack in the absence of Kerryon Johnson (knee). After struggling with efficiency for the majority of the season, Blount's 4.6 yards per carry was a welcome sight and evoked memories of some of his performances in seasons past. The bruising back also scored two trademark short touchdowns, going in for a pair of four-yard scores in the first and second quarter, respectively. Blount could play a prominent role yet again in Week 13 against the Rams if Johnson remains sidelined.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Role to increase in Johnson's stead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount is primed for a larger role on offense with Kerryon Johnson (knee) unavailable for Thursday's game against the Bears, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Averaging just 2.3 yards on 78 carries this season, Blount has largely been limited to short-yardage work ever since Johnson emerged as a formidable lead back. The rookie's upcoming absence creates the opportunity for Blount to see more carries, but he'll be facing an excellent defense and likely won't be in line for much work on passing downs. Theo Riddick is a safer option in PPR formats, and Zach Zenner may also poach some snaps from Blount.
