Blount was on the field for 27 of 73 snaps on offense in the Patriots' 22-17 win over the Jets on Sunday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Blount carried 11 times for 67 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, James White saw 26 snaps (and zero carries, en route to catching four passes), while Dion Lewis was out there for 23 snaps, carrying six times for 24 yards and hauling in four passes. While Blount hasn't scored a TD in his last two games, he's turned his 30 carries in that span into 191 yards, good for a 6.4 yards per carry clip. While Lewis and White will continue to handle the Patriots' pass-catching/change-of-pace duties, Blount remains entrenched as the team's power back and is thus in line to see a decent chunk of carries (including some around the goal line) on a weekly basis.

Blount had 19 carries for 124 yards without any touchdowns in Sunday's 30-17 win at San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Blount had a 44-yard scamper in the first quarter that helped set up a touchdown reception by James White. The bruising runner also had a 35-yard touchdown run called back in the second quarter because of a holding penalty. In a game that featured rainy and sloppy field conditions, it's a little surprising that Blount wasn't leaned on more, as six of his carries came in the final two minutes to run out the clock. He's got a tougher matchup next week against a solid Jets rush defense.

Blount carried 21 times for 69 yards while scoring all three of the Patriots' TDs in Sunday night's 31-24 loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Though his 3.7 yards per carry through nine games is nothing spectacular, Blount has helped out fantasy owners by recording an NFL-leading 12 TDs, while logging a total of 182 carries (fifth in the league) for 678 yards. He'll take aim in Week 11 at a 49ers defense that held David Johnson to 2.9 YPC on Sunday, but has overall struggled to stop the run this season, allowing a league-high 180.4 yards per game on the ground to date.

Blount carried 18 times for 43 yards and a TD in Sunday's 41-25 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Blount, who has scored a TD in all but one of the Patriots' eight games to date, will now get a bye week to rest his aches and pains before returning to action in Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Blount had 24 carries for a season-high 127 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-16 win at Pittsburgh. He caught his lone target for seven yards.

EDGE Analysis

Blount's rushing yardage had taken a hit in the previous two games, which coincided with the return of Tom Brady, but that changed Sunday, as the power runner was highly effective, especially in the second half when he ripped of a number of chunk runs. He's been great in all formats, but especially in standard leagues with eight touchdowns on the year. He'll look to score again next week against division rival Buffalo.

Blount (hip) carried 13 times for 50 yards and a TD and caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's 35-17 win over over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots' passing attack has been productive in the two games since QB Tom Brady returned to the lineup, but given that Blount remains the team's top power option out of the backfield, he continues to make his mark in early-down and short-yardage situations.

Blount (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Though the reintroduction of top QB Tom Brady to the New England offense has led to an added emphasis on the passing attack, Blount remains the team's top power option out of the backfield, which will enable him to continue to handle the bulk of the team's early-down and short-yardage work.

Blount (hip) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the return of quarterback Tom Brady from his four-game suspension has improved the passing game, Blount is still the top running back option on an excellent offense. He gets most of his work on early downs, though he'll also get the goal-line snaps, giving him plenty of fantasy upside.

Blount (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots' list of questionables goes 12-deep this week, but we expect Blount to be out there for Sunday's contest. While the return of top QB Tom Brady has led to added emphasis on the team's passing attack, Blount remains the Patriots' top power option out of their backfield, which puts him on track to continue to handle the team's early-down and short-yardage work.

Blount (hip) was listed as limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Blount was limited at practice last week before rushing for 37 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Week 5's win over Cleveland. We'd expect him to be fine for Sunday's game against the Bengals and while the return of QB Tom Brady has energized the team's passing attack, Blount remains the Patriots' top power option out of the backfield and is thus in line to continue to handle the team's early-down and short-yardage work.
