A tractor trailer of a back at 6-foot, 250, Blount – at his best – has deceptively good speed and is extraordinarily difficult to bring down, as evidenced by his top-five finish in yards after contact...

Blount was released by the Steelers on Tuesday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Steelers decided to part ways with Blount after he exited Monday's game prior to its conclusion, upset that he did not receive a carry during the contest. Blount averaged 4.1 yards per carry this season and has averaged 4.6 yards per run during his career, so he figures to garner interest from teams looking for running back help.
Blount, apparently upset because he did not have a carry against Tennessee on Monday night, left the field before the game was over, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Blount has been an internal problem for the Steelers for at least a month and unnamed sources claim he has been "dragging down" Le'Veon Bell in the process. Some players are reportedly pushing coach Mike Tomlin to release Blount, who has 266 yards rushing on 65 carries this season. Whether or not he remains a Steeler, Blount has little fantasy value at the moment.
Blount did not have have any carries or targets in Monday's 27-24 win over the Titans.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

At 6-0, 247, Blount is a heavy load, who has uncanny speed for his size. That said, he's struggled the last two seasons and lost his job in Tampa Bay to Doug Martin. A trade to the Patriots in April gives Blount a fresh start on a strong offensive team, but it's a heavily crowded backfield in New England with Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Leon Washington and fellow bruiser Brandon Bolden also in the mix. Ideally, Blount could carve out a short-yardage and goal-line role with the Pats, but he'll need to look good this preseason in order to make the team's final roster.

2012

Blount was one of fantasy football’s biggest busts last season, and injuries couldn’t be blamed. He’s still a beast with the ball in his hands and possesses one of the best hurdles in the NFL with a nice combination of speed and power. Few backs in the league are tougher to bring down in the open field. However, Blount is poor in pass protection and lacks discipline, committing too many penalties, and he also fumbled five times on a modest 184 carries. Despite being 6-0, 247, this lack of ball security likely led to him receiving just two goal-line carries (he converted both). There’s an entirely new coaching staff in Tampa Bay, and it traded up to select Doug Martin, whom it views as a “complete back,” in the first round. The rookie is expected to start immediately. There were 32 backs who were given more snaps than Blount last season, and that was before Martin was added to the roster.

2011

Blount went from undrafted rookie to one of the better running backs in the NFL last season, and few saw it coming. He would have been drafted, and maybe even within the first few rounds, had he not been suspended during his senior season at Oregon for punching an opposing player following a season-opening loss, so it wasn’t a question of talent. Blount led the NFL in broken tackles as a runner with 50, which is a remarkable feat considering his 201 carries ranked just 22nd. His 3.7 YPC after contact also was the best in football. Blount doesn’t come without fleas, however, as he’s shown nothing as a receiver and despite his big build (6-0, 247), his coaches lost trust in him in short-yardage situations, and the stats backed them up (Blount was just 2-for-9 at the goal line). Blount is unlikely to start racking up catches, so securing the role at the goal line will be crucial to his fantasy value. There’s no reason he can’t succeed there given his physical attributes as he already possesses the best hurdle in the NFL, and while some question his speed, his three carries for 40-plus yards and 10 carries for 20-plus yards last season both equaled Jamaal Charles’ output. QB Josh Freeman and WR Mike Williams look like stars in the making, so this Bucs’ offense could soon be dangerous. With his ability to break tackles, Blount’s numbers could be scary good if Tampa Bay’s poor offensive line improves.

2010

Blount is one of many backup running backs who could be fighting for the few carries Chris Johnson will not see, but may only see time on special teams in 2010.
