Leonard Fournette arrested for unpaid speeding ticket

Leonard Fournette was arrested on Thursday afternoon for failing to pay a speeding ticket from November.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette was going 12mph over the speed limit with a suspended license. It’s reassuring to hear the arrest wasn’t over something more serious, but it’s also fair to expect Fournette to take care of something like this without it escalating to this point. The third-year running back is reportedly looking at 2019 as a fresh start for himself. Hopefully this is the end of nonsense like this.

Leonard Fournette "in a really good place"

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says Leonard Fournette is "in a really good place" right now.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette met with the Jags brass last week to clear the air after a frustrating 2018 season. There were multiple low points including injuries, a fight with the Bills, and a conflict with Tom Coughlin. It sounds as if both Fournette and Jacksonville are willing to put the past behind them. The 23-year-old running back in a special talent and will likely be able to be had a discount in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Leonard Fournette has cleared the air with Jags brass

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Leonard Fournette met with Tom Coughlin and the rest of the Jaguars brass to clear the air and move forward to 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport adds that the meeting went well for both sides. Fournette was hurt for most of 2018 and Coughlin was upset with his actions down the stretch for an imploding Jaguars team. Jacksonville has bigger things to worry about this off-season, however, such as finding a quarterback to replace the ghost of Blake Bortles.

Leonard Fournette inactive for Week 17

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is inactive for the team's Week 17 matchup with the Houston Texans due to knee and ankle issues.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette was limited in practice all week, and with nothing to play for in Week 17, the team is likely proceeding with caution so that their star running back can head into the offseason as healthy as possible after an injury-riddled season. T.J. Yeldon, Carlos Hyde, and David Williams will share running back duties in his absence.

Leonard Fournette is doubtful Week 17

Leonard Fournette is doubtful to play Week 17 with ankle and foot injuries.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette carried the ball 18 times last week against the Dolphins but was largely ineffective. It looks like he'll be sidelined in the finale. He will likely not go as high in 2019 drafts given his continued struggles with health, but he'll continue to be one of the few backs capable of providing bell-cow usage.
