2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The hype surrounding Leonard Fournette in fantasy circles seems to grow by the minute. Few players possess the size, speed and power and the early comparisons to players such as Adrian Peterson and Fred Taylor have created lofty expectations. The success of Ezekiel Elliott last year shows just how valuable an all purpose power back can be in a fantasy landscape riddled with RBBCs. Competition for carries comes in the form of the team's two most recent attempts at finding a lead rusher, Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon. While both players will have a role in the offense, neither will prevent Fournette from ascending to the top of the depth chart sooner rather than later. Not known for his receiving skills, Jacksonville's rookie horse has received passing grades on his hands during OTAs. Forecasting a few receptions into his early projections makes the former LSU Tiger an appealing fantasy running back with rare double-digit touchdown potential. Early drafters may be able to snatch him up in the middle of the second round but his value may climb to late first round status if he performs well in the preseason.

Injury Leonard Fournette won't play Thursday
Foot injury; still on track for Week 1 vs. Houston
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 21, 7:50 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars fans will have to wait at least another week to catch Leonard Fournette in game action again. Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday that the fourth-overall pick will be among the players who won't suit up for Thursday's preseason contest against the Carolina Panthers. Fournette sat out last week's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a foot injury. Fournette told reporters last week he could have played against the Bucs if it were necessary and said he was confident he'd be ready to roll by the Jags' Sept. 10 season opener against the Houston Texans. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Fournette is almost certain not to play in the preseason finale, so owners will have to base their opinion of him on his college resume and 12 snaps during the exhibition season. At the moment, Jacksonville's offense looks to be an unmitigated disaster, and it will be up to Fournette to make it at least a bit respectable. Volume will be on his side, but he needs to be treated as a high-upside RB2 for fantasy purposes instead of the low-end RB1 he is being drafted as this summer.


Injury Leonard Fournette held out of practice Sunday
Foot injury

Rookie tailback Leonard Fournette did not practice because of a foot injury. "It’s been something that has been growing,” coach Doug Marrone said. “It’s just one of those nagging things. The other day, it was sore so we said, Hey, let’s not take any chances. Let’s take cautionary measures so it can’t be something worse." (Florida Times Union)

FFToday's Take: Marrone wouldn't commit to Fournette playing in the Jaguars upcoming preseason game on Thursday. It's likely the Jags will be cautions with their rookie running back who is expected to see a significant workload this season. For now, this a situation to watch, by isn't a reason to knock Fournette down your rankings.
