Blount signed with the Eagles after a shocking 2016 campaign with the Patriots, that saw him run for 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns. But any excitement about his prospects vanished with his dismal preseason performance, and word from the coaching staff that they envision a timeshare. Although the Redskins struggle to stop the run (20 total touchdowns and 1724 rushing yards allowed), it would be unwise to start Blount in Week 1 without knowing the exact breakdown of the Eagles' backfield.

LeGarrette Blount has another quiet day Sunday

LeGarrette Blount carried the ball seven times for 12 yards and added two catches for 11 yards against the Rams on Sunday, as he continues to lose out on snaps and touches to Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement.

Fantasy Impact

Blount's value has dropped significantly since the acquisition of Jay Ajayi, and he continues to lose touches in a crowded Philadelphia backfield. His role may increase a bit if quarterback Carson Wentz misses extended time with a knee injury, but it is more likely that Blount is merely a short-yardage back who is touchdown-dependent at this point.
