Player Notes
Feb 20 10:30pm ET

The Detroit Lions are not expected to re-sign impending unrestricted free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount this offseason. Tight ends Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson and defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois are also expected to hit the open market. The 32-year-old Blount had 154 carries for only 418 yards (career-low 2.7 yards per carry) and five touchdowns in his only season in Detroit. He had a whopping 18 touchdowns with the Patriots in 2016, but that was an outlier season for the former Oregon Duck, as he never topped six scores in any other year. He doesn't have much left at this point in his career and is strictly a short-yardage, goal-line back.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent TE Levine Toilolo, TE Luke Willson, RB LeGarrette Blount and DT Ricky Jean-Francois are all expected to hit the free-agent market this offseason.

Feb 2 11:23pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount's 2.7 yards per carry were the fewest of any running back with at least 150 rushing attempts in 2018.

Dec 30 4:30pm ET

Detroit Lions' RB LeGarrette Blount averaged a dismal 1.4 yards per carry on 11 attempts in Sunday's win in Green Bay.

Dec 30 12:20pm ET

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (chest) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Packers, while running back LeGarrette Blount (knee) is active. It leaves quarterback Matthew Stafford with a bare cupboard of playmakers in a meaningless season finale. T.J. Jones, Brandon Powell and Andy Jones will be his receivers. It's best to avoid Detroit's offense altogether in fantasy on Sunday. Blount is sharing touches with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick in the backfield and is averaging less than 3.0 yards per carry on the year. Avoid him as well.

From RotoBaller

Dec 28 6:03pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Spin: Blount has been held to under 35 yards in each of the last three games and has only two touchdowns in the last nine games. Owners should be able to find better options for their lineups even if Blount is able to play.

Dec 28 4:43pm ET

Detroit Lions DT A'Shawn Robinson (knee), CB DeShawn Shead (knee) and TE Luke Willson (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers. CB Jamal Agnew (knee), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), DB Quandre Diggs (back), WR Kenny Golladay (chest), DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and CB Nevin Lawson (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion Friday, Dec. 28, and are listed as questionable. QB Matthew Stafford (back) was a full participant in practice Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Dec 27 5:33pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Blount has received at least 10 carries in four of the last five games but has rushed for at least 50 yards in only two of the last nine games. He probably would receive a similar workload if he plays this week and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Dec 26 6:10pm ET

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount (knee) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Blount has been playing through injuries in recent weeks and remains highly unproductive for Detroit. He ran the ball 11 times for just 29 yards in Week 16 and is averaging 2.8 yards per carry this year. He should not be in any starting lineups for the final game of the regular season and continues to lose touches to Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick.

From RotoBaller

Dec 26 4:53pm ET

Detroit Lions CB Quandre Diggs (back), DT Damon Harrison (ankle), DT A'Shawn Robinson (knee), CB DeShawn Shead (knee) and TE Luke Willson (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26. CB Jamal Agnew (knee) and RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) wer limited.

Dec 23 7:50pm ET

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount took 11 carries for 29 yards and caught just two of four targets for negative five yards. He led the team in carries but it was Zach Zenner that made the most of his opportunities, rushing for 45 yards. Blount isn't a viable fantasy option due to the emergence of Zenner, and that will continue into Week 17 for a matchup with the Green Bay Packers who have been solid at limiting opposing running backs this season.

From RotoBaller

Dec 23 7:13pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 11 times for just 29 yards in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings and he had two grabs for minus-5 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Spin: Blount led the backfield with 13 total touches, but he did nothing with the opportunity in another listless performance by the Detroit offense. He isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues heading into the Week 17 finale.

Dec 23 9:33am ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount (calf) will be a game-time decision for Week 16's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Spin: Blount had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant during the week. The Vikings have a solid rushing defense and Blount hasn't done anything of note from a fantasy standpoint recently, so he should be avoided in all formats this afternoon.

Dec 21 4:33pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount (calf) practiced on a limited basis on Friday, Dec. 21 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Spin: Blount might be able to play, but he isn't a recommended option at this point. He has done very little to warrant fantasy consideration lately.

Dec 21 4:23pm ET

Detroit Lions S Charles Washington (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21, and he is out for Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings, and WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) was limited but is also out. CB Jamal Agnew (knee), RB LeGarrette Blount (calf), WR Kenny Golladay (chest), DT Damon Harrison (ankle), LB Devon Kennard (hip) and QB Matthew Stafford (back) were each limited and are all listed as questionable. FB Nick Bellore (ankle), CB Marcus Cooper (back), LS Don Muhlbach (calf) and OT Ricky Wagner (concussion) practiced in full and are off the injury report.

Dec 20 11:30pm ET

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount (calf) was added to the Week 16 injury report and was limited on Thursday. Blount could be questionable to face the Vikings this weekend. Despite finding the end zone five times this year, Blount is averaging an embarrassing 2.8 yards per carry and has lost touches to Zach Zenner in recent weeks with rookie Kerryon Johnson on Injured Reserve. Even if Blount plays, he should be avoided against a tough Minnesota defensive front.

From RotoBaller

Dec 20 5:03pm ET

Detroit Lions DT Damon Harrison (ankle), LS Don Muhlbach (calf) and S Charles Washington (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 20. CB Jamal Agnew (knee), FB Nick Bellore (ankle), RB LeGarrette Blount (calf), WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and LB Devon Kennard (hip) were limited. CB Marcus Cooper (back) and OT Ricky Wagner (concussion) practiced in full.

Dec 16 10:50pm ET

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount took seven carries for just nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. This continues a trend downward for Blount, as both Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick have been receiving the bulk of the rushing work. The bruising back heavily relies on volume to produce, so on an offense that is devastated by injuries, his production is set up for failure from the beginning. Next week against the Vikings, Blount is essentially un-usable because there are so many question marks with the Lions offense right now.

From RotoBaller

Dec 16 5:33pm ET

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount rushed seven times for nine yards and failed to land his lone target in Week 15 at the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Spin: Blount has no value in Week 16 contests against the Minnesota Vikings' stout run defense.

Dec 13 9:50pm ET

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount hit a roadblock last week, and that was Zach Zenner, his own teammate. Zenner scored Detroit's only offensive touchdown, while also taking 12 carries away from Blount. However, the bruiser has been solid ever since rookie Kerryon Johnson got injured, rushing for 182 yards and two touchdowns over the past three weeks. Although, with Zenner now clearly in the mix, Blount's unsteady workload is worrisome as a volume based, touchdown-dependent back. You could certainly do worse, but trusting Blount during fantasy playoff time is risky business.
