2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Blount was a revelation for the Bucs as an undrafted rookie free agent picked up on the waiver wire after being released in the preseason by the Titans. He assumed the starting role at midseason for an ineffective Cadillac Williams and finished the season with 1,007 rushing yards and six touchdowns while averaging an impressive 5.0 yards per carry. However, his limitations as a receiver and pass blocker were evident and with the Bucs often playing from behind, Blount struggled mightily, finishing the year with 781 rushing yards and five touchdowns. He was especially ineffective down the stretch, accumulating just 137 yards and one touchdown on 46 carries over the Bucs final five games. His struggles caused the Bucs to draft Boise State product Doug Martin late in the first round of this yearís draft and he has entered training camp ahead of Blount in the pecking order at running back. While there are no guarantees that Martin will excel in his rookie season, he will get the first crack at earning a significant amount of playing time with Blount likely to get the goal line work and subbing in as a change of pace option. Consider Blount a low end RB4 entering the season and a potential flex option in larger leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jonas Gray listed as Out     -- Sat Dec 27 7:00 am --

Ankle injury
A whopping 18 players were listed by the Patriots on Fridayís injury report, with running back Jonas Gray and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard being ruled out of Sundayís game. Gray has been dealing with an ankle injury, and was the only player to miss Fridayís practice. (Boston Herald)

FF Today's Take: LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen are both listed as Questionable. With nothing to play for the entire Patriots offense is too risky to consider for DFS lineups. Brandon Bolden and James White could be the two main ball-carries for New England in Week 17.
Injury LeGarrette Blount out with shoulder injury     -- Sat Dec 20 7:01 pm --

FF Today's Take: With Blount out, Jonas Gray will likely serve as the Patriots big back for Week 16. The Jets have been tough against the run this season making Gray nothing more than a FLEX play in Week 16.
Injury Blount in Pittsburgh dealing with legal matters     -- Wed Dec 10 3:48 pm --

Ankle injury keeps Shane Vereen limited
FOXBOROUGH ó The Patriots were without two high-profile players at practice on Wednesday, but for very different reasons. Defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee) missed practice, as did running back LeGarrette Blount (not injury related). Blount, according to reports, was in Pittsburgh in court to appeal an August charge for possession of marijuana. As usual, the Patriots had a laundry list of limited participants in practice. Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), left guard Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were all limited in practice (

FF Today's Take: Blount was given 50 hours of community service stemming from his marijuana possession charge early this year. Nonetheless, he remains the most fantasy worthy running back heading into Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. Shane Vereen, who was limited in practice Wednesday, has only had eight touches over the past two weeks and will be a risky fantasy start if cleared to play.
Jonas Gray misses practice, late to facility     -- Fri Nov 21 1:40 pm --

Tardiness could affect RBs playing time on Sunday
New England Patriots running back Jonas Gray didn't practice on Friday because he didn't report to the team's facility on time, according to two sources. Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a longstanding rule that if a player doesn't report on time, he doesn't practice that day. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: This incident may impact Gray's playing time on Sunday. Newly acquired LeGarrette Blount could see action if Belichick decides to discipline his rookie running back. Gray becomes a shaky fantasy play in Week 12.
Patriots add Blount to running back mix     -- Thu Nov 20 10:47 am --

Two-year deal
Free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount, who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, agreed Thursday to a two-year deal with the New England Patriots for the veteran minimum plus incentives, according to a source. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Blount was with New England last season as their power back, averaging 5.0 yards per carry and scoring 7 TDs. Blount's signing impacts Jonas Gray more than Vereen. Gray will still be the lead big-back in the offense for the time being with Blount in the mix as an insurance policy.
Steelers release RB LeGarrette Blount     -- Tue Nov 18 1:37 pm --

Running back left the field early after receiving zero carries
The Steelers have released running back LeGarrette Blount less than a day after he left the teamís sideline before the completion of the teamís 27-24 comeback win Monday night over Tennessee. "We believe the decision to release LeGarrette is in the best interest of the organization and wish him the best of luck," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in the statement. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Blount received zero carries in Monday night's game against the Titans while Le'Veon Bell received 33. Blount's antics of leaving the field early last night obviously didn't sit well with the team. It's likely that running back needy teams (IND, MIN, DEN, ARI) will kick the tires on Ben Tate before Blount.
