2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Approaching his age 32 season, Blount, the hired gun (on his 3rd team in the last three years) gives the Lions the short yardage battering ram they've lacked for a long time. Despite his size, he can "get skinny" when he needs to and move the chains. Now his final numbers look incredibly poor after winning a ring with the Eagles last year, (766 yards, 2 touchdowns, a 16 touchdown regression from 2016 in New England) but this is a player is familiar to the coaching staff, has a high football IQ and will give Detroit quality snaps and carries, as he owned a respectable 4.4 yards-per-carry average for the Eagles last year. Unfortunately for fantasy purposes he's incredibly one-dimensional, and likely situational as well, especially if rookie teammate Kerryon Johnson develops as the team expects.

The bottom line here is that Detroit brought Blount in to be a veteran presence from winning organizations in a backfield that's frankly stunk for a long time. He'll be a great short yardage option and a fallback workhorse if necessary, but a few hundred yards and half a dozen touchdowns is about the most you can expect, making him an end of the roster RB5.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Kerryon Johnson week to week with knee injury
Sprained knee
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 19, 11:56 am

Detroit Lions
Lions RB Kerryon Johnson is week to week with a sprained knee per source. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Johnson was on his way to a 100-yard rushing game when he left in the third quarter with what appears to be a sprained knee. It's unlikely he will play on Thursday leaving LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner to handle running back duties in Week 12.


Lions fine with Kerryon Johnson's puny workload
Patricia thinks rookie RB getting 20 of 55 snaps is a "good amount"
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 2, 10:47 am

Detroit Lions
Kerryon Johnson played just 20 of 55 offensive snaps in the Lions' 26-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, five fewer than third-down back Theo Riddick and six more than veteran LeGarrette Blount, but the Lions HC isn't bothered. "I think we have a lot of really good running backs and I think we try to use them appropriately," Patricia said at his Monday news conference. "I think Kerryon played a significant amount of the game. He played 20 snaps of 55, that’s a good amount. Plus, we have two other running backs, plus we have two-minute drives and other two-minute personnel packages and things like that. There was quite a bit of reps in there for Kerryon." (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Kerryon Johnson probably won't be a bell cow anytime soon, and based on Patricia's super "Belichick-ey" statement here it appears his upside will be limited to RB3/flex the remainder of the season. It's a shame, because he's been the team's most effective back through four games.
