Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Not expected to stay in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount isn't expected to re-sign with Detroit before the start of the new league year in March, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Coming off a 2018 campaign in which he managed just 2.8 yards per carry, the 32-year-old running back likely will need to compete for a roster spot wherever he ends up. There's also some chance Blount could simply retire, as his age, recent production and lack of pass-game skills will make it difficult to land a contract for significantly more than the veteran's minimum. The Lions figure to go in a different direction in their search for backfield depth behind Kerryon Johnson (knee).

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Ends season on sour note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount rushed 11 times for 15 yards during Sunday's victory over Green Bay.

A reliable yet underwhelming veteran presence is about all Blount has been for Detroit in 2018, and that reputation held true Sunday as the plodding runner failed to clear 2.0 yards per carry for the ninth time in 16 contests. Given how effective the 27-year-old Zach Zenner has been over the final four games of the season, it seems unlikely the 32-year-old Blount -- who will be an unrestricted free agent in March -- is high on Lions management's list of priorities to be re-signed this offseason. In fact, there may not be much of a market at all for an aging tailback who averaged just 2.8 yards per carry behind a strong offensive line that allowed Kerryon Johnson (knee) to average 5.4 YPC and Zenner 5.1 YPC.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Set to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (knee) is active Sunday against Green Bay.

Blount was limited in practice each day this week, but the knee issue won't prevent him from suiting up for the regular season finale. His workload is more of a question mark, however, as he's seen 22 or less offensive snaps in each of the last three weeks. Look for Blount to once again split time with the likes of Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner, which unquestionably limits his fantasy ceiling.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Questionable for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

A limited participant throughout the week, Blount seems to be on track to play in the season finale, likely splitting work with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick. The three-way timeshare doesn't present much upside for fantasy purposes, but it would at least become somewhat interesting if the Lions were to place Blount on their inactive list prior to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. EST kickoff.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Remains limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Blount was limited for the Lions' final two practices of Week 16 before suiting up in Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Vikings and finishing with 29 yards on 11 carries and minus-5 yards on two receptions. There weren't any reports coming out of the contest suggesting that he aggravated the knee, so his limitations so far this week may just be precautionary. It's generally expected that Blount will be ready to go for a matchup with the Packers this weekend, though he may rank as the secondary rushing option behind Zach Zenner.
