Beat: LeGarrette Blount to get 6-8 carries per game

Pittsburgh Post Gazette - [Full Article]

What is most attractive about LeGarrette Blount is his career rushing average -- 4.7 yards per carry -- which, at the very least, makes him a dependable back in short-yardage and goal-line situations. The Steelers signed him to spell Bell and get six to eight carries a game.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project Blount to see 6.0 carries per game, but his role could grow a bit if he's successful running the ball. The Steelers don't want to wear out LeVeon Bell with a quality backup like Blount on the roster.
