Getting Older is Taking Its Toll on LeGarrette Blount

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

LeGarrette Blount had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the #301 ranked fantasy player this season and the #51 RB. Playing 16 games helped him maintain his value. Based on average fantasy points he is the #74 RB. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 5 FPs in his first 5 games and 6 FP in his final 6 games. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Blount is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Blount when he 'goes off' is 22 fantasy points (his average is 4.8FPs).
