2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Elusive and shifty for a man of his size, LeGarrette Blount will provide the Steelers and your fantasy team with some insurance should Le'Veon Bell miss any time. Signed in the offseason to a two-year deal, Blount brings a one-dimensional skillset to the Steelers backfield (23 catches in four seasons). Sporting a strong 4.5 yards per carry average for his career, Blount can break long runs, as well as run behind his pads. Bell owners should prioritize nabbing Blount, but if they wait too long, watch Blount carefully. As a back-up, LeGarrette is nothing more than a RB4/5, but is an ideal handcuff or player to poach as he is assured a large sum of carries should he be forced into the starting lineup. Should he have the opportunity, Blount could provide definite RB2/3 potential.

Comment: Blount's arrest for pot may or may not have league discipline attached. Stay tuned.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Blount in Pittsburgh dealing with legal matters
Ankle injury keeps Shane Vereen limited
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 10, 3:48 pm

New England Patriots
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 (Boston.com)

FFToday'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
Tardiness could affect RBs playing time on Sunday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 21, 1:40 pm

New England Patriots
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)

FFToday'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
Two-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 20, 10:47 am

New England Patriots
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)

FFToday'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
Running back left the field early after receiving zero carries
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 18, 1:37 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
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)

FFToday'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.
