Fournette came alive in the NFL Playoffs last year and was a key component to Tampa winning the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, this doesn't provide us with much more clarity on this backfield heading into 2021. Jones is still a part of this rotation - and he actually outproduced Fournette in the regular season last year - while Gio Bernard has also been brought in to be a reliable pass-catching option. Fournette could continue his success from the postseason and truly take over this starting job, which would instantly put him in the top-15 conversation. However, there's as equally strong of a possibility that Jones cleans up his fumbling problems and takes over. Adding Fournette to your roster certainly has its appeal, but his price needs to be appropriate. As a RB3 on your roster, you can absorb the potential fallout if Fournette doesn't pan out. Anything more than that though is playing with fire.

Leonard Fournette is returning to the Buccaneers for the 2021 season

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Buccaneers are re-signing veteran running back Leonard Fournette.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette got off to a slow start in the 2020 season, ceding touches to a fellow former first-round pick, Ronald Jones II. As the season progressed though, Fournette started to take over the lead duties, eventually turning into "Playoff Lenny" where he totaled 300 rushing yards, 148 receiving yards, and four touchdowns en route to the Buccaneers Super Bowl win. Bruce Arians has a penchant for rolling out a committee of running backs, so Fournette will likely slide down draft boards in 2021. Still, he showed what he's capable of when given the starting duties and will have a high ceiling.
