2014 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Jun-30-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Blount has performed well when given limited opportunities. His rookie season in Tampa was a great success. In 13 games Blount rushed for over 1,000 yards and averaged five yards a carry. Blount appeared to be the Bucs' back of the future, but that wasn't the case. In 2011 Blount dealt with a knee injury that cost him two games, and seemed to linger for most of the season. Set to bounce-back in 2012, Blount found himself in rookie head coach Greg Schiano's dog house. Doug Martin took over from there, limiting Blount to 41 carries. The following offseason, he was traded to New England. In 2013, Blount performed very well. In a very crowded backfield, Blount averaged five yards a carry, and punched in seven touchdowns. Now on yet another team, he must prove himself once again. Blount will be the No. 2 back in Pittsburgh behind second-year man Le'Veon Bell. Blount will most likely get limited touches in his new role. His running style appears to be a great fit in Pittsburgh and he should succeed in coming in occasionally in the second-half to further wear down defenses. If you own Bell, Blount is a desirable handcuff with enough talent to be worth the occasional start if he ever needs to start a game or two.
