RB - FA
Tampa Bay released RB Leonard Fournette, clearing $3.5 million in salary cap space.
The move was expected for salary cap purposes in addition to Fournette ceding many carries to Rachaad White from Week 10 of last season. Fournette rushed for 1,847 yards and 17 TD in four years with the Bucs.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers plan on releasing RB Leonard Fournette by the start of the new league year.
Fournette will likely be a free agent on March 15 after three seasons in Tampa Bay. A former top pick, Fournette will now be released from his second team by age 28. Fournette accrued 3,057 total yards and 22 total touchdowns in Tampa Bay and could find a new home soon.
Leonard Fournette rushed the ball ten times for 28 yards and caught four passes for 19 yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Carolina Panthers.
The Buccaneers' couldn't get much going in the run game on Sunday, and that started with Fournette. He rushed for only 28 yards on the day, and he failed to add much more with receiving work. He's had some good moments this season, but this game was a big letdown for any fantasy managers who took a shot on starting him in their championship round.
Leonard Fournette rushed the ball 20 times for 72 yards and caught nine passes for 90 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Fournette was very involved on Sunday, touching the ball a staggering 29 times in a win over the Cardinals. He got nine reception on the day, and his production was stellar in any PPR leagues. This is the second week in a row that he's led the team in rushing, and they clearly have some level of trust in him beyond what they have for rookie Rachaad White.
Leonard Fournette carried the ball ten times for 44 yards and caught four passes for 30 yards in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The veteran running back had an underwhelming outing against Cincinnati. He totaled 74 yards and failed to score a touchdown in a rough loss to the Bengals. His day was salvaged in PPR leagues by four receptions, but even that wasn't enough to propel him to a productive game. He's still losing touches to rookie Rachaad White and is a candidate to be sat in the fantasy playoffs.
