If you’re still on the fence about a fantasy running back for this Sunday’s NFL action, don’t ignore the Birds’ LeGarrette Blount.

It has not always been pretty for Blount this season, particularly last week, when it took him 14 carries to earn 29 rushing yards.

But he has been a borderline RB2/Flex option when you look at his entire season, averaging 8.3 F.P.P.G., good for 25th among running backs.

He should be a very solid RB2 this week against the 49ers, who are even worse against opposing running backs than they are against quarterbacks.

Eight backs have topped 10 fantasy points against them in seven games, and they’ve given up a shocking 26.4 F.P.P.G. to the position this season.
