LeGarrette Blount had seven carries for 29 yards in Friday's preseason game at Carolina. Blount did not play with Tom Brady in the first half, but rather with Jimmy Garoppolo in the second half.

Fantasy Impact: Jonas Gray got the start on Friday with LeGarrette Blount coming on in the second half. There is not too much to read into as Bill Belichick likes to mix things up during the preseason. Blount ran hard and with confidence and looked like the better running back and should lead the team in carries once he serves his suspension in Game One of the regular season.

Belichick notoriously finicky with RBs, but the big man is easily the best option on the roster.

Not sure why he is going so late. He is going to miss one game and then likely come back and finish out the year as a top 24 RB will scary TD upside.

LeGarrette Blount fails his conditioning test. He had to run 20 sprints of 50 yards each under 8 seconds. He could only do 12. The New England Patriots did not have a single rusher who ran for more than 100 carries last season between Vereen, Ridley, and Gray. I was hoping that LeGarrette Blount could have 200+ carries in 2015, but now this backfield situation is a mess. He had 201 carries in his rookie season in 2010. His current ADP is 54.8 and dropping.

Blount should be back as the lead back in New England in 2015, which gives him flex appeal with RB2 upside. There are a ton of backs in New England though, so it is going to be a frustrating RBBC.

Call me crazy but Blount is a 500 yard 6 TD type of back with upside. Only consider him in TD only leagues at this point, but does have the upside for near double-digit TDs. He will be over drafted in most leagues.

Blunt has been a touchdown machine for the Patriots when he's happened onto their team, especially in the playoffs. In his last 12 games as a Patriot he has piled up 14 touchdowns. And now Stevan Ridley is gone and he's the best early down/goalline back on the team. The Patriots also happened to run the ball 28 times for 12 TDs from inside the opponent's 5 yard line last season. Both league highs.

Patriots backfield is muddied but he is a bruiser who can dominate at times, so if he's the guy we need to pay notice.

A solid pick in non-PPR leagues. Blount should see plenty of work on first and second down and also in the red zone
