Nice move for Blount and solid pick up for the Steelers.

If the Steelers line comes into its own you could see a lot of tired and beat up front sevens trying to stop him and Bell late in games. They might eat into each other's carries but improve each other's ypc.

Given recent reports of short yardage/goal line duties, as well as more work between the 20s than previously thought, this seems like an ideal depth pick up via FA with only 16% ownership across Yahoo.

Not sure what to make of the recent reports that Blount is a "co-starter" with Le'Veon Bell in Pittsburgh, and Tomlin's statement that he views him as more than a "red-zone and goal-line back."

If he's getting 8-12 carries and goal line work, he's a nice guy to have on the bench, and a possible flex play once injuries and bye weeks start hitting.

So I hear what the talkin heads say but what kind of fantasy impact does this if any have on Le'veon Bell? Im a pittsburgh native and wasnt a big fan of drafting Bell, with that said I came around and I think he is a hell of a player, Blount is negative impact on Bell in my opinon....

Very encouraging usage for Blount in the preseason!

Week 3 is usually the tuneup game as a predictor of things to come, and he split the work with Bell right down the middle. Even pulled in 3 catches.

I like that Tomlin thinks highly of Blount (on the field work). The fact that they've been introduced as co-starters during the preseason makes me love Blount's ADP more and more.

"They’re both going to get their share," Tomlin said of Blount and Le'Veon Bell. "We’ll deal with that on a game-by-game basis based on the plan."

I love RW's reactions. If he can get close to 50% of the work and the majority of the goal line opportunities, he's a rock solid RB2.

Even if he earns the majority of the goal-line opportunities, Blount is little more than a mid-range RB3.
