Receiving skills put him in play as RB2. and TE1Bills have allowed two rush TDs to RBs in 2 of past 3, so there is some hope
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Two weeks after scoring two touchdowns with a season-high 103 yards against the Bears, Blount amassed 51 yards and no scores against the Cardinals. He played just 19 snaps and saw no red-zone touches. Zach Zenner, on the other hand, took one of his two insides inside the 10 to the house. Even if Kerryon Johnson sits again, Blount is merely a low-end flex option in non-PPR leagues.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Samuels should be starting again this week and he had 92 yards from scrimmage last week. That easily puts him in the TE1 discussion this week for leagues that allow him to be used at tight end. He is a RB3 / flex option at running back.
