He wasn't happy after the Week 11 loss to the Colts where he totaled a season-low eight carries. He did see seven targets from Foles, though we can't forget he threw the ball a massive 47 times in that game. The Titans are the team that held Fournette to -4 yards on 14 carries most of the game but allowed one 69-yard run late in the game that propped up his overall numbers. The Titans are also expected to get defensive tackle Jurrell Casey back from his shoulder injury after he's missed the last two games. They still may be without linebacker Jayon Brown, which would definitely be a boost to Fournette. It's not a great matchup for him, though. They Titans have held all but one running back (Christian McCaffrey) to 82 or less yards on the ground, and that's despite eight running backs totaling 14-plus carries. The 5.95 yards per target they've allowed isn't anything to attack either, and again, we've already seen Fournette total just 26 yards on the six receptions against them in Week 3. The only two running backs who've finished as RB1s against them were McCaffrey (duh) and Austin Ekeler, who caught seven passes for 118 yards and a touchdown. It seems like it'll be difficult for Fournette to get in that conversation. If you're hoping for him to end his touchdown drought, that'll be tough too, as the Titans have allowed just 12 rushing touchdowns in 26 games under Mike Vrabel, which is the fourth-fewest in the league over that time. You're playing him in season-long leagues but he's not a great DFS play.It felt like the Saints offense of old last week, and though it was a tough matchup, Kamara gutted out 122 total yards against the Bucs stingy defense. In the two games since returning from injury, the backfield touch split has gone Kamara 35 - Murray 19, a 65/35 split, though it's much closer when it comes to carries. The Panthers have been a great matchup for running backs, as we've watched them allow six top-12 performances, including three inside the top five. Sure, Brian Hill may not have gotten it done, but after allowing a touchdown to Qadree Ollison, the Panthers have now allowed a rushing touchdown once every 14.7 carries while no other team has allowed one more often than every 20.3 carries. When you take a high-scoring team like the Saints at home and put them against a team that's struggling, big things are bound to happen. The 1.01 PPR points per opportunity they allow is the second-highest number in the league, behind only the Lions. Here's the catch between the two running backs, though. Kamara has 17 carries over the last two weeks while Murray has 15, so it's close to an even split there with Kamara getting almost the entire receiving workload. The Panthers have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points through the air to running backs. It's on the ground they've been hammered, as they've allowed 15.5 more fantasy points than any other team on the ground. Kamara should be played as an RB1 but Murray deserves a start as an RB3 as well who might have more upside than most realize.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Tennessee is 14th against fantasy backs, Fournette is a low-end RB1 against a Titans D coming off a bye this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 There hasn't been a team worse at defending RBs that Carolina over the past five weeks. They have surrendered 33.2 fantasy points per game and a total of 11 RB touchdowns over these four games and five weeks. While he plays second fiddle to Kamara, Murray still totaled 10 carries last game. That amount of carries would go a long way against Carolina, putting Ingram in flex territory this week.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Even with Nick Foles returning, Leonard Fournette was still heavily involved in the passing game, recording seven receptions on seven targets. He is still a low-end RB1 due to his high floor and constant involvement in the Jags offense.
