LeGarrette Blount met with the Eagles media for the first time on Thursday. He revealed that he had multiple offers from other teams including the Cardinals and the Giants. He said he chose the Eagles because he believes they are building something special around quarterback Carson Wentz. When asked about his role, he wasn’t exactly sure what his significance would be.

Fantasy Impact:

Don’t expect Blount to be taking majority carries every single game, but expect him to used in a lot of crucial situations. The Eagles were searching for a bruiser style back, and they got it in Blount. After he led the league in rushing touchdowns last year, the Eagles expect to pick things up right where the Patriots left off with Blount. Expect him to get a lot of red zone carries, which makes him a solid RB2/FLEX option.
