2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: LeGarrette Blount, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2010 Stats
 1,007 rush yds.
6 rush TDs
5 rec. / 14 yds.
0 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
 1,225 rush yds.
10 rush TDs
10 rec. / 45 yds.
0 rec. TDs

Blount went from a free agent to Tampa Bay's starting running back over the course of last year. Blount showed a good combination of speed and strength for the Bucs. Blount has the size and durability to carry the load in Tampa and could get 20-25 carries per game. In 2010, Blount didn't start seeing significant playing time until week 8, yet he still rushed for over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. Over a 16-game season, those numbers would put Blount in the top five among running backs. If Blount can become relevant in the passing game, he could be a top five pick for many years to come.
