LeGarrette Blount is probable. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeGarrette Blount (neck) returned to a full practice on Thursday and Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Blount won't be needed and it looks like Doug Martin has run away with the job. Martin got 28 touches on Sunday against the Panthers and should be a big part of the game plan on Sunday. Blount only has value as a handcuff and it's not a guarantee that he would be put into a featured role like C.J. Spiller and Michael Bush will be. Blount doesn't need to be owned in most leagues and fantasy owners should feel very comfortable about Doug Martin as a near must-start option.
