Blount finally found a home, this time in Philadelphia. With Ryan Mathews' status unclear, the Eagles needed to bulk up their running game, and Blount should do the trick. He's not going to be a high-volume back, as he can't catch, but he should get early down and goal-line touches, and the Eagles have a strong offensive line and love to run the ball around the goal line.

LeGarrette Blount is unsure of role with the Eagles

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.
