In time, LeGarrette Blount figures to be in a part-time role with Jay Ajayi taking over the Philly run game.
That won’t happen in Week 9, but it won’t matter. The Denver run defense is the real deal, and even though the Broncos are on the road for the third straight week, they’re going to limit Blount.
With an expectation of roughly 15 carries and a sub-optimal rushing average, Blount is only going to be good for fantasy if he scores.
His best games have come against porous run defenses, and the Broncos haven’t allowed a rushing touchdown this season.
