 All of us can only inspire to love someone the way Matt Patricia loves Blount. The 32-year-old is averaging a microscopic 2.8 yards per carry with 25 yards on as many red-zone handoffs. Yet he led the way in Week 16 touches (13) over Zach Zenner. He even drew four targets, two of which he mishandled while the other pair went for -5 yards. He's a touchdown-or-bust option who hasn't scored in eight of the last nine games.
