2016 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on May-10-2016 by Shawn Childs


The Patriots really would like to play two different styles on offense, which sets up a wide range of playing time for a player like Blount. LeGarrette is expected to be the power back again in 2016 after signing a one-year deal in the offseason. Over 12 games in 2015, he had 165 carries for 703 yards and six TDs with minimal value in the passing game (6/43/1). Last season he missed Week 1 due a suspension plus three more missed games due to a hip injury in Week 14. Blount only had two games with more than 20 touches leading to one 100-yard rushing game (29/129/1). Earlier in the season, Dion Lewis stole the show, and even some of the goal line carries inside the 10-yard line. LeGarrette is just a mix and match, one dimensional RB with a chance at 200+ carries for 900+ yards and double-digit TDs. He has boom or bust impact from week-to-week in the Fantasy world, which makes him a tough own in the high-stakes market where passing catching backs are much more attractive.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
11.12 Brandon Marianne - All signs are pointing to fellow RB Dion Lewis recovering nicely from his ACL, but Blount is the ?big-back? that Belichick loves to use against weak offensive lines. He?s a plug and play in the right match up. I think Blount is going to break a lot of Dion Lewis lovers? hearts.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
12.09 Two QBs - Salvatore Stefanile - NE is very dependent on RB match-ups and Blount has had big games in the past. With Lewis already on my roster I'll be able to play the matchups each week, and sometimes even start both depending on their opponent.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
13.07 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - He could be the workhorse on this offense if Dion Lewis isn't ready to start the season or goes down with an injury.
