Blount averaged just 3.9 yards per carry in 2017, but did score 18 touchdowns last year. I do worry that Belichick will look to give Blount some competition, but if he doesn't, there's a good chance Blount's touchdown numbers will be high again

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.
