Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
5/2: Brutal blow w/ MGIII returning. While Javonte will be the first-man up his ceiling is much more capped (albeit that ceiling is much higher than last year regardless now w/ Russell Wilson arriving)5/2: Was the RB4 as a true bellcow, and now Ronald Jones is gone, paving even more potential volume. HOWEVER - Rookie Rachaad White is lauded for his receiving skills & Fournette's 84 tgts were a major reason for his blow-up -- the RB Coach also berated Lenny as a pass-catcher, they take the top 2022 pass-catching RB... huge downgrade IMO + he's reportedly out of shape, which is always a concern with Lenny
Brandon Funston

63 Missed Tackles Forced was only 3 behind leader Jonathan Taylor despite 129 fewer carriesHas 4 seasons of 15+ PPR FPPG in past 5 years - only Alvin Kamara has more among RBs in that span
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Running back Melvin Gordon signed a one-year deal with the Denver Broncos, ultimately halting the Javonte Williams 2022 breakout season. The idea of Williams playing a three-down role was salivating, but Gordon's return should not be overlooked after a seriously underrated 2021 campaign. MG3's return definitely hurts Williams' top-tier fantasy ceiling. He's going to split work with another capable back in Gordon which is exactly what new head coach Nathaniel Hackett desires and spoke on at the NFL owners meeting in March. However, keep in mind that Williams finished 13th in touches last season (246, 14.6 per game) and would be the favorite to take another step forward in the passing game - Aaron Jones-esque - after finishing as one of two rookie RBs inside the top-15 in route participation in 2021: Najee Harris (first) and Javonte Williams (13th). Williams falls just out of the fantasy RB1 conversation for me in redraft and best ball, but he's right on the cusp. I don't think he can be ranked worse than RB15 considering that's where he finished as a rookie amid a split workload in a much worse offensive environment.It's been a long journey for Leonard Fournette from his last days as "Fat Lenny" with the Jacksonville Jaguars earning the moniker "Lombardi Lenny" due to his brilliant play for Tampa Bay the last year and a half. He impressed the Buccaneers' front office - and a certain No. 12 quarterback - enough to earn a fat three-year deal with his old team worth $21 million up to $24 million. There's zero doubt with his performance and contract that he will be the entrenched clear-cut starter for the Bucs, and that's exactly the desired outcome for fantasy football. Fournette ranked fifth in fantasy points and fourth in expected fantasy points per game before his Week 15 injury, leading all running in receptions (62). Upon his return to the lineup for the Buccaneers' playoff matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, Fournette reclaimed bell-cow duties, playing 86% of Tampa Bay's offensive snaps to go with 22 touches for 107 yards from scrimmage. With an all-encompassing skill set at just 27 years old, Fournette possesses easy top-10 running back fantasy appeal. He slides inside my early 2022 running back rankings as RB8 because a fantasy RB1 is exactly what he has been in the Tom Brady-led offense.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 Workhorse Uncle Lenn is back to trigger the haters in 2022. In Weeks 4-14, Leonard Fournette played less than 61% of the team's snaps in only two games. Over that stretch, he averaged 19.7 touches and 103 total yards per game as the RB5 in fantasy. Fournette was also fantastic in the passing game. In that sample, he led all running backs in targets (63) and was fourth in receiving yards (344). Rachaad White might be his heir apparent, but Tampa Bay has Super Bowl aspirations, and it's difficult to envision Tom Brady trusting a rookie in the backfield to protect him.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Williams showed his upside when he averaged 20.4 fantasy points from Week 12 to Week 14. He should also be the lead back in the offense in 2022, but Melvin Gordon's resigning does limit his workload and makes him a low-Fournette had a breakout year in Tampa Bay with 1,266 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns before suffering a hamstring injury and missing the final two games of the fantasy season. Fournette just signed a new contract with Tampa Bay and if he is used the same way, he should be a RB2 with RB1 upside.
