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.

Eagles ready to make Ajayi a lead back
Tighter RB rotation could make Ajayi an easy RB2 in 2018
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 26, 8:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Actions speak louder than words, but when it comes to the Eagles' running back situations, the team is both talking and acting like Jay Ajayi is going to be the top back. Although they ran a running back by committee last season, the team appears ready to slightly abandon that philosophy next season. Ajayi was with the first-team offense for almost all of their snaps during the offseason, except for the occasional snap that went to second-year running back Corey Clement. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles split 395 carries last season between six running backs with LeGarrette Blount (173) getting a 44% share. With Blount out of mix it's safe assume a tighter rotation in the backfield with Ajayi, Clement and Darren Sproles getting the majority of work. In this scenario, 200-plus carries seems like a good bet for Ajayi. Last season, 16 of the 18 RBs with 200+ carries finished as a fantasy RB2 in standard scoring leagues based on fantasy points per game.
