Leonard Fournette struggles in loss to Tennessee

Leonard Fournette carried 14 times for 40 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for 21 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the late touchdown by Fournette, make no mistake about it: he struggled on Sunday. The game script didn't do him any favors, but Tennessee did a great job at stacking the box and taking away Jacksonville's running game. This resulted in Blake Bortles having to throw more, which is never a good thing for the Jaguars. This could be a common dilemma moving forward for Jacksonville's offense, which definitely puts a cap on Fournette's potential. He will face one of the better run-stopping defensive units in Baltimore next week.

Leonard Fournette gets a full workload in Week 1

Leonard Fournette had 26 rush attempts, three receptions and one TD for 124 scrimmage yards against the Houston Texans in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette had a huge workload against a top run defense in the Texans. Fournette was also used as a pass catcher which was a nice surprise. TJ Yeldon was inactive for Week 1 so that might change once Yeldon is healthy. Fournette owners should be happy with the Jaguars' complete commitment to the run and to keeping the ball out of Blake Bortles' hand. If the Jaguars defense can be as dominant as they were in Week 1, then Fournette owners are going to relish in their draft choice.

Leonard Fournette not starting Week 1

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette "may not start" Week 1, but he is expected to receive "a lot of carries."

Fantasy Impact

Although he may not start, Fournette is fully expected to see the bulk of the carries at running back, even more so since T.J. Yeldon is designated inactive. Facing a stout Texans run defense, Fournette is a risky fantasy start in his NFL debut.

Leonard Fournette not on Week 1 injury report

Leonard Fournette not on injury report for Week 1 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Great news for Fournette owners. He is healed up and ready to go for Week 1. Fournette is in line for a big workload if he can stay healthy in 2017.

Leonard Fournette sits against the Falcons

Leonard Fournette rests against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Week 4 game.

Fantasy Impact

Resting is good news for Fournette owners. He needs to get as healthy as possible before the season starts. If Fournette stays healthy, he will have a huge workload in 2017.
