LeGarrette Blount Fantasy Projection Week 15: Tampa Bay Running Back Looks To Shine In Primetime Against The Cowboys

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys in NFL Network's first Saturday night game of the season. It's the final home game of the season for the Bucs, who are looking to end a seven game losing streak and are playing for their coach's job security.

LeGarrette Blount, like every other Buc on the offensive side of the ball, is coming off a quiet week against the Jaguars. The Bucs running back, however, is still among the top 15 fantasy projected running backs in Week 15, according to the fantasy projection experts at numberFIre.com. Blount is projected with 11.62 fantasy points against the Cowboys, who have a top ten ranked rushing defense but are coming off a game where another big back similar to Blount, Brandon Jacobs, rushed for 100+ yards and two touchdowns.
