Blount averaged just 3.9 yards per carry in 2016, but did score 18 touchdowns. The trouble is that the Patriots won't want to re-sign him for what he wants. Much will depend on where he ends up, but since it won't be with the Patriots, his value will be much lower this year.

Blount turns 31-years old this season and he had a career high 18 rushing touchdowns after having never had more than 7 in a season. He should have RB2 value, but I would not chase an outlier season, especially with him over 30-years old. He also is a free agent and he may not be back in New England.
