LeGarrette Blount Week 10 Fantasy Update: Tampa Running Back, Like Rest Of Team, Has Disappointing Day Against Houston

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount had a very quiet and disappointing day on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Blount, who was looking to become one of the league's top fantasy performers at the beginning of the season, had his year disrupted when he injured his knee in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers. Blount made his return last week against the New Orleans Saints and looked as if he would get right back on track for the second half of the season.

Any progress, however, stalled this afternoon in Tampa when the Bucs quickly fell behind the Texans and were forced to throw the ball to try and get back in it. As a result, Blount carried the ball only 10 times for a total of 34 yards, with no touchdowns - a disappointing day, to say the least. With Earnest Graham out, Blount will continue to get the lion's share of the carries. Fantasy owners just have to hope the Bucs don't trail by multiple touchdowns for most of the game like they did today.
