Blount ran seven times for just 12 yards and caught both passes directed his way for 11 more yards.

EDGE Analysis

The contest marked the second straight game in which Blount was only on the field for 15 or fewer snaps, and this time it was far fewer than the 27 Corey Clement saw or 43 for Jay Ajayi. Seven of Blount's touches came in the first half, but in the second half, Philadelphia turned primarily to Ajayi, who was far more effective with the ball. It will be tough to rely on Blount for fantasy production in spite of another favorable matchup Week 15 against the Giants.

Blount only logged 14 snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Seahawks, taking eight carries for 26 yards.

EDGE Analysis

With the Eagles playing from behind for most of the night, Jay Ajayi (31 snaps) and Corey Clement (28) both dwarfed Blount in terms of playing time. It partially seemed to be a product of the Eagles seeking to expand Ajayi's role, but the bigger factor was game context in combination with Blount's lack of pass-catching/blocking skill. The 250-pounder could still have some busy afternoon when the Eagles are able to mount leads, but a Week 14 road game against the Rams isn't exactly a prime bounce-back spot. The workload split still needs to be monitored on a weekly basis in this three-headed Philadelphia backfield.

Blount took 15 carries for 97 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-3 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Blount coughed the ball up at the end of a 35-yard gain in the first quarter, but he returned to take the next carry and stayed involved through the end of the game. Jay Ajayi had five carries for 26 yards and also fumbled at the end of his longest run, while Corey Clement chipped in with 27 yards on four totes and Kenjon Barner drew a target. There weren't any goal-line opportunities, as Carson Wentz threw touchdown passes from 17, 15 and eight yards out. Blount will enter a Week 13 road matchup with the Rams having comfortably led the Philadelphia backfield in carries and touches in back-to-back games.

Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Sunday's 37-9 trouncing of the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Blount led the Eagles' backfield in touches and was one of three ball carriers to rush for at least 50 yards in the game, along with Corey Clement (50) and Jay Ajayi (91). However, it took the burly back as many carries as the other two combined to reach his total. If Clement continues to emerge and Ajayi learns more of the playbook, it stands to reason that Blount will begin to lose touches if he cannot prove himself a more effective runner.

Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries in Sunday's 51-23 romp of Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday's game snapped Blount's six-game streak of at least a dozen carries. Part of that can be attributed to Philly incorporating some of its lesser-used backs while nursing a multi-score lead for much of the game, but there should be some concern that trade-pickup Jay Ajayi saw just one fewer touch and ran for more yardage on his touchdown rush than Blount had in the entire game. Blount is not scoring at near the pace that he did in New England last season and now figures to see a reduction in usage in what has suddenly become a very crowded Eagles backfield.

Blount will remain atop the depth chart for Sunday's game against the Broncos and is expected to serve as the Eagles' lead back, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles' acquisition Tuesday of three-down workhorse Jay Ajayi seemingly weakens Blount's long-term grip on the starting role, but with the former Dolphin still getting up to speed with head coach Doug Pederson's offensive playbook and uncertain to be active in Week 9, Blount should dominate the touches out of the backfield. Even when Ajayi gets a better handle on the Eagles' offense coming out of the Week 10 bye, Blount could still work in tandem with the former to bludgeon opposing defenses, but Blount's volume will almost assuredly take a hit. Blount has seen a steady workload of between 14 and 16 carries in each of the Eagles' last five contests.

Eagles' VP Howie Roseman told the media that Blount would still be the starter, even after the team acquired Jay Ajayi, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Of course, in his next breath, Roseman added that the decision was really up to the coaches. Additionally, being the nominal starter only means that a player is on the field for his team's first offensive snap in a given game, not that he is guaranteed the majority of playing time. No matter how the snap and touch counts work out, Blount's fantasy value took a significant hit with this trade.

Blount rushed 16 times for 48 yards and a touchdown while adding a four-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's 33-10 win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Blount found pay dirt from 12 yards out in the fourth quarter. While both Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood have made contributions out of Philadelphia's backfield this season, Blount's near monopoly on goal-line work makes him the most valuable fantasy option on the team in standard formats. He's scored three touchdowns through eight games with his new club, but has the potential for much more after getting into the end zone 18 times with the Patriots last year.

Blount rushed 14 times for 29 yards in Monday night's 34-24 win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Blount couldn't get much going, and his performance was even worse prior to a 21-yard rush on Philadelphia's final offensive drive. Besides his Week 2 goose egg, Blount's output Monday marked a season low. Although he's only scored twice thus far, Blount is still averaging nearly five yards on 12 carries per game, giving him solid yet unspectacular value ahead of Sunday's favorable matchup against the 49ers.

Blount was on the field for 30 of a possible 62 snaps on offense in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

In the process, Blount ran 14 times for 67 yards, while also cashing in on a two-point conversion. Blount -- who racked up 18 scores while with the Patriots in 2016 -- has logged 70 carries for 390 yards through six games to date, with two total TDs in that span. He'll look to find the end zone again in Week 7 when Philadelphia faces Washington in the NFL's Monday night game.
