Do you have any other options? Or is it just either keep Blount, or draft a player in the 8th round (no other keepers?)? Because I mean if that is your only option, I guess maybe you coukd keep him because he offers some value there.
But just to put it blountly (see what I did there? ) : Blount sucks. I’m sorry, he’s just not a good football player. Thinking he’s going to sniff double digit tds is kinda delusional. In his six seasons prior to 2016 Blount scored no more than seven tds in any season, so it’s not like he’s this sure-fire goal line back. It’s just that when you put a player on the best team in football and given them the ball every time on the goal line, yeah they’re going to score a lot.
But Philadelphia is not New England. Philadelphia is a full blown committee, and Blount is not the transcendent talent to change that. He’s going to be sharing with Sproles (who is a very strong bet to outscore Blount in ppr). He’s going to me sharing with Pumphrey and Smallwood and hell, even Ryan Matthews is still on the roster and if they decide he’s worth his salary, he’s a far better back than Blount when healthy.
And let’s just say that Blount is getting enough carries that he’s got a better chance than not to score more than 5 points on a weekly basis, which is by no means guaranteed. Blount will then be a boom or bust option on the off chance he scores a touchdown. Meaning that chances are, he will crap your team for three weeks, then score a couple of tds on your bench.
Friends don’t let friends do Blount. Just don’t man. Don’t.
