LeGarrette Blount Week 11 Fantasy Update: Buccaneers Running Back Has Huge Day In Green Bay

Tampa Bay running back LeGarrette Blount had a big day on Sunday, breaking the century mark  and scoring for the first time since returning from a knee injury suffered against the 49ers in Week 5. Blount carried the ball 18 times for 107 yards, made all the more impressive by the fact that the Bucs trailed for much of the game and were forced to throw the ball to keep pace with the undefeated Packers.

A large chunk of Blount's 107 yards came on an amazing 54 yard touchdown run. It was his only touchdown on the day but it came on what could very well be the run of the year in the NFL, as he shed at least 7 Green Bay tacklers, dragging a few of them for 3+ yards before breaking away for the score. The run led to a big day for Blount fantasy owners, despite the Bucs fourth straight loss.
