 The Jaguars spent most of the offseason trying to get away from Fournette and the result was that . . . they added Chris Thompson. Yes, that's going to mean a decline from the 76 receptions Fournette had last year, but normal regression would have led to a significant decrease in his target volume anyway. But Fournette also had the eighth-most rushing attempts inside the red zone last year and yet somehow scored only three touchdowns. His likely increase in finding the end zone should offset much of his loss of volume in the passing game, and combined should be enough to keep him as a fairly decent RB2 in fantasy leagues.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Given arthritic knees, a Gurley draft pick comes with restless sleep - but new offense and workload upside ripe with the kind of upside potential he enjoyed in LABiggest concern is not whether he'll see positive TD regression or take a major receptions hit with C. Thompson around, it's if JAX remains committed to him if/when losses pile up
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Rams offense was in complete disarray last year, as their offensive line started to crumble, which dragged Gurley's efficiency down the drain. He did show that he's still able to handle a big workload down the stretch, finishing with 98 touches over the final five games. Now going to the Falcons, who have one of the better offensive lines in football, with little competition, Gurley could return to RB1 status. It's a high-scoring offense where the running backs have averaged 1,383 yards and 9.7 touchdowns on the ground, while averaging another 572 yards and 4.7 touchdowns through the air over the last three years. With Ito Smith and Brian Hill the only running backs behind him, Gurley should receive most of the work/production.After trying to trade him prior to the NFL Draft, Fournette appears destined to play for the Jaguars once again in 2020. With Jay Gruden calling the offense, they should be much more efficient this year, though Fournette's volume made him a great play throughout 2019. The only running backs who offered RB2 or better numbers more often than Fournette in 2019 were Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Dalvin Cook, and Austin Ekeler. Do they go with more of a timeshare under Gruden? it's possible, but he should still offer low-end RB1 value.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Gurley may be the most difficult running back to evaluate heading into 2020. He's on a new team, he still has the knee problems and you just never know when he'll break down. If you like high-risk/high-reward guys, Gurley is your man.Fournette is always one fo the trickest players in fantasy football. He's injury-prone and plays on a bad offense but at the same time, sees tremendous volume. The Jaguars did little to improve the backfield this year which would only indicate they are confident in Fournette being the bell cow. Injuries will always be a concern but at his current ADP, Fournette is a solid value.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 365 touches last season and only 57 evaded tackles. 90th in fantasy points per opportunity. Jay Gruden brought in his guy Chris Thompson to catch passes out of the backfield.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
No Rams RB averaged over 3.8 a carry. Despite all the Gurley concerns, he still had 250 touches on the year, and graded equally as well in the run as the previous 2 years according to whatever PFF uses. His line play was terrible, 26th in the league. He now steps into just a favorable situation, behind a top 10 run blocking line in 2019, where his pass catching work should pop back up, even if TDs aren't quite as high, to provide another 250 touch season, and borderline RB1 potential as long as the knees allow it.No matter what you think of Fournette, touching the ball 341 times, and only getting 3TDs is not sustainable, in a good way. I don't have a problem thinking Chris Thompson or Laviska take away a significant amount of targets, I just need the TDs to normalize to get ROI.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gurley is going to be given all the touches he can handle in this Falcons offense, if he can stay healthy. If he proves that he can handle a significant workload, he'll easily outperform his ADP this season. However, there are legitimate reasons to doubt that he'll be able to withstand a heavy workload ever again, which makes him an incredibly risky pick.Fournette is the unquestioned lead back for a NFL team, which is always going to equate to fantasy impact. With that being said, he has a limited ceiling and it's hard to see a path where Fournette finishes as a top-15 RB this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Atlanta is a great landing spot for Todd Gurley--he should walk right into the 17.4 touches/game that Devonta vacated. Still a 4th rounder with durability concerns. Initial Gurley projection with Atlanta is 235 carries, 965 rushing yards, 8 rushing TD, 61 targets, 340 receiving yards, 2 receiving TD.Leonard Fournette only scored three rushing touchdowns in 2019, but they accounted for every rushing score for the Jaguars. Those three rushing touchdowns were the lowest from a team since the 2005 Cardinals. Only 13 other teams in NFL history finished with that low of a total. (@LateRoundQB) I don't completely expect Fournette to stay as healthy as he did last year, but we should see some TD regression in 2020. In 2019 he set career highs in: games played: 15, rush yards: 1152, rushing 1st downs: 52, yards per att: 4.3, targets: 100, receptions: 76, receiving yards: 522, total touches: 341, total yards: 1674... for 6-10 team (@DFFMemphis)
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Todd Gurley sits right in the middle of the group of former fantasy studs who've moved to new teams and he arguably has the best situation. While he had an awful 2019 but he doesn't deserve the bulk of the fault. His knee issues didn't help but the biggest problems were his O-line, who blocked worse than SP15 sunscreen, and the offence that no longer ran through him like the glory years of 2017-18. Now in Atlanta, there's a good chance the former RB1 can return to his previous glory in an offence that made the questionable talent of Devonta Freeman a fantasy star. Sharing the workload is a possibility but the lack of talent behind him means he's locked into the main role and only injury can really knock him down from there. I love the upside but there is enough risk to wait until the late 3rd round before pulling the trigger.If Leonard Fournette remains the Jags workhorse RB he could be one of the bargains of the season. Often available in the third round, he offers league-winning upside in an attack with plenty of points in it. The risk is clearly high with the possibility the Jags go full rebuild and give Ryquell Armstead a proper crack or get forced to chase games. The upside is massive too though. Fournette finish RB9 with 1600+ yards but only 3 TDs in 2019. That's stupidly low and makes no sense given he had 57 red zone touches which is very high. Somehow, he only converted 5% of those looks, well down on his previous efforts of 25%. Regression to his TD average and a repeat of last season's yardage would mean 290 points and a top 5 finish. Take the gamble!
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gurley will have a new lease on life in Atlanta and he did have 14 touchdowns last year, but he also averaged only 3.8 yards per carry, had very few big plays, and his arthritic condition in his knee makes him a dicey flex option.Fournette was strong when it comes to yards from scrimmage (1,674), but he had only 3 touchdowns. Fournette was actively shopped during the NFL Draft. The Jaguars are not going to have much patience with him not performing well this year, which makes him a risky fantasy player.
