Eagles' LeGarrette Blount projected to see double-digit touches against Falcons

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount is projected by numberFire to see double-digit touches on Saturday versus the Atlanta Falcons.

What It Means:

Blount has been slowly phased out of the Eagles offense as Jay Ajayi has earned a more significant share of the backfield work. Over the last five games, Blount has averaged just 8.0 touches (7.2 carries) while Ajayi has seen 14.5 touches (12.5 carries) in his previous 4 games.

Our models project Blount for 10.5 touches (9.3 carries) for 49.6 yards and 6.9 FanDuel points against the Falcons on Saturday.
