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 year’s 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.
Blount to miss rest of the season with hip injury-- Tue Dec 15 5:35 pm --
Brandon Bolden expected to see increased role
New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount will miss the remainder of the season because of a hip injury, a source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Blount suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Brandon Bolden is next in line to take over the power-back option in the Patriots offense with James White being used in a pass-catching role. Bolden, Denard Robinson and Bryce Brown are top waiver wire adds at running back for those owners still in the playoffs.
