Running back LeGarrette Blount's return from a season-ending hip injury, suffered in December, bears watching as it relates to his roster status. Blount, who signed a modest one-year deal as a free agent to return in 2016, didn't practice in the spring. If he returns to full health and runs hard like he did at times in 2015, there shouldn't be any issues. But that isn't a given based on the present snapshot. (Source: ESPN )
Fantasy Impact: If Blount can come into camp healthy, he should be the "big back" for the Patriots this season playing most of the early down and goal line snaps. Because of the question marks with his healthy, fantasy owners may want to avoid Blount in the early rounds of early drafts but would be a nice gamble in later rounds.
