LeGarrette Blount RB PIT 3 Days

Blount rushed seven times for nine yards and caught one pass for eight yards in the Steelers' 30-23 win against Houston on Monday night.

Through seven games, Blount has a respectable 5.0 yards per carry and two scores, but does not see consistent touches, making him a difficult start for fantasy owners.

Blount rushed eight times for 27 yards in the Steelers' 31-10 loss to Cleveland on Sunday.

Forced to play catch-up limited Blount's touches to just two in the second half. Blount is averaging only six attempts a game through six weeks, so unless the Steelers are nursing a lead and running the ball, he has limited fantasy value as long as Le'Veon Bell remains healthy.

LeGarrette Blount RB PIT 18 Days

Blount ran for 29 yards on eight carries, and caught three passes for 17 yards in the Steelers' 17-9 win over Jacksonville on Sunday.

Blount continues to make the most of his rushing opportunities, averaging 6.4 yards per carry, which is second only to Darren Sproles among all running backs with at least 25 attempts this season. The receptions were Blount's first of the season, matching his total receptions for 2012 and 2013 combined. Not know for his receiving skills, this was a nice surprise, but Blount is still behind Le'Veon Bell on the depth chart, making it difficult to insert him in fantasy lineups.

Blount had four carries for 25 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

After scorching the Panthers for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, Blount came back down to Earth on Sunday, registering his third game with fewer than five carries. While he has scored twice as many (two to one) touchdowns as starter Le'Veon Bell, the latter continues to dominate the touches out of the backfield, leaving Blount as a very unreliable fantasy option.

Blount had 10 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Panthers.

Blount had two carries for 18 yards and no score before the fourth quarter, but then gouged the Carolina defense on the meaningless final two drives of the game. He ran well and was difficult to tackle, even breaking out a hurdle on Carolina's Antoine Cason. As good as Blount looked, Le'Veon Bell had another excellent game while once again working as the clear top back in all situations, with the exception of the fourth quarter of blowouts. Though he's likely going to have barren games if Bell stays healthy, Blount should get some carries when the Steelers win by a lot, which could happen quite a few times over the next four weeks. Pittsburgh's next four games are against Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Cleveland and Houston, in that order.

Blount carried three times for eight yards in Thursday's 26-6 loss to the Ravens.

That gives Blount a combined seven carries for 14 yards and a TD over the Steelers' first two games, with Le'Veon Bell (32 carries for 168 yards in that span) clearly the team's top backfield option these days.

Blount ran for 6 yards and a touchdown on four carries in the Steelers' 30-27 win over Cleveland Sunday.

Blount was hardly a factor all game, although he did vulture a score on a third-and-one from seven yards out. Fantasy owners concerned about Blount stealing touches from Le'Veon Bell near the goal line should note that on Pittsburgh's opening drive, Bell carried the ball on consecutive plays inside the five yard line and scored a touchdown, although it was negated by a penalty.

Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed that both Blount and Le'Veon Bell will suit up Sunday against the Browns, NFL.com reports.

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review indicates that Tomlin does not plan to discuss any possible internal punishment for the running backs, stemming from the duo's recent arrest on marijuana possession charges, with the report suggesting that no punishment via the NFL is likely to arrive any time soon. In any case, neither player is a candidate to sit out Sunday's game, which puts Bell on track to head the Steelers' backfield out of the gate, with Blount a candidate to spell him, and potentially factor in on short-yardage situations.

Blount gained seven yards on three carries in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers.

Blount and Le'Veon Bell both played in the finale, after getting arrested together for marijuana possession last week. While any league discipline would likely have to wait until next season, there's some chance the Steelers could come up with a punishment of their own. The team probably won't suspend Bell or Blount, but the situation is at least worth keeping an eye on. Assuming both players suit up, Blount figures to spell Bell frequently in early-down situations, and could steal a sizable chunk of the goal-line and short-yardage work.

Blount and Le'Veon Bell are both in line to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

While coach Mike Tomlin has indicated that the Steelers are considering their options in terms of punishment following the arrest of the running backs on marijuana possession charges last week, Scott Brown of ESPN.com believes that it's unlikely that the team will sit either running back for an entire game, while noting that a potential suspension from the NFL won't likely come until next season. That sentiment is echoed by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who more specifically, doubts that either Blount or Bell are candidates to be suspended or made inactive for Week 1.
