2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Blount led the NFL in rushing touchdowns (18) and set a career high in rushing yards (1,161) in 2016 as a member of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. As is often the case with the Patriots, who are masters of maximizing production while not paying for past performance, Blount was rewarded with a lowball offer and a free agent signing for below market value with the Eagles.

Although Blount is big and relatively agile for his size, he is not elusive and only excels as a powerful between the tackles running back (as evident to his subpar 3.9 YPC average last season.)

In Philadelphia, Blount joins a crowded group of running backs in which four running backs combined to carry the ball 353 times for first-year head coach Doug Pederson. The former Chiefs offensive coordinator proved that he prefers to use a backfield by committee, which could limit Blount's effectiveness for fantasy owners in 2017, as Blount received 299 carries in New England last year.

Despite these concerns, Blount will have significant value in standard leagues if he is given the majority of goal line carries in what appears to be a much-improved Eagles offense. If the team does not release Ryan Mathews and the two players share duties, Blount will be a nightmare for fantasy owners, as Pederson is unpredictable in how he uses his running backs.

News From The Past 90 Days
Jay Ajayi to be limited in Week 9?
Eagles have a bye in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 4, 1:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Neither Doug Pederson nor running back Jay Ajayi would say whether Ajayi definitely will play Sunday when the Eagles host the Denver Broncos, but the most likely scenario seems to be that Ajayi will be active, working with a limited package of plays. (Philadelphia Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: The most likely scenario is Ajayi being limited in Week 9, especially with the Eagles bye week looming in Week 10, giving him more time dive into the playbook. LeGarrette Blount should see the majority of snaps against a difficult Broncos run defense that's given up the fewest amount of fantasy points to running backs this season.


Jay Ajayi traded to the Eagles
Miami receives 4th round pick
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 31, 8:53 am

Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins have traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round pick, it was announced Tuesday. The move comes four days after coach Adam Gase said the Dolphins had "the worst offense in football" after the team's 40-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. Miami ranks last in the NFL with 252.4 yards per game. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Whoa. This move improves the chances of Ajayi finally finding the endzone. While Ajayi's fantasy value is boosted, this is a blow for LeGarrette Blount who should see his touches reduced. Miami is now left with Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams who will likely share the backfield moving forward.


Injury Wendall Smallwood not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 8, 8:20 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood, who is listed as questionable with a knee injury, is not expected to play vs. the #AZCardinals, I'm told. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is no surprise as Smallwood missed practice all week. The Eagles will continue to use a running back by committee approach with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement serving as the top two options.


Wendell Smallwood misses another practice
Knee injury; sat out Wednesday as well
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 5, 5:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Fletcher Cox (calf) and Wendell Smallwood (knee) apparently aren't practicing again today. (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Cox is a vital cog on the Eagles' strong defensive line, but Arizona's front five is playing poorly enough at the moment that the Philadelphia D/ST is still a good play this week. Smallwood's potential Week 5 absence should mean a heavier workload for LeGarrette Blount. Arizona is stingy for the most part against running backs, but bye weeks and injuries at the running back position may make Blount a worthwhile low-end RB2 start if Smallwood can't go.


Injury Broken arm, torn ACL for Darren Sproles
Surgery on arm scheduled for Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 25, 10:45 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles tore an ACL and broke an arm on the same play Sunday, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter. Sproles is having surgery on his arm Monday and will require surgery on his knee, sources said. His season is over. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This could be the end of the line for Sproles (34) who was playing a key role in the Eagles offense. LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement are next up on the depth chart. This will likely be a backfield by committee with Smallwood and Blount holding similar value. Smallwood is the better option for PPR leagues.
