2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
After investing a high draft pick on Fournette, the Jaguars' organization brought with it a seeming change in offensive philosophy. Gone are the days of Blake Bortles being among the league leaders in pass attempts. Instead, they shift to a run-first offense centered on positive game scripts for Fournette. Despite playing in only 13 games, Fournette finished 7th in total rushing attempts and 8th in rushing yards. On a points per game basis, Fournette finished behind only Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott, Le'Veon Bell, and Kareem Hunt.

As a fantasy asset, Fournette was a star early last season and even as his production slipped, he remained a reliable option through 2017. Fournette's start was near historic as he scored at least one touchdown in each of his first six games before succumbing to an injury and missing time during the middle of the year. All in all, he finished with ten scores on the year.

With a deep RB draft class, many veteran RBs were in jeopardy, but for obvious reasons, that wasn't the case for Fournette. After an appearance in the AFC Championship game, the Jaguars largely chose to stand pat at the position in the off-season which indicates another big volume season for Fournette. He should be a top 12 pick in leagues and owners can feel confident that he'll receive enough volume to have a strong chance to be a RB1 in 2018.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Leonard Fournette to be limited in practice
Foot injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 17, 4:10 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Marrone says Leonard Fournette will be limited this week with a foot injury. (Zach Goodall on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette and Marrone both said it was part of the game plan in Week 15 to give rookie David Williams more playing time, but this report would seem to suggest otherwise. Last year's No. 4 overall pick received only one second-half carry in Week 16, and he returned to the sidelines after busting loose for a 25-yard gain. This development only clouds the picture further for Fournette in what would otherwise be a wonderful matchup against the Dolphins this week.

Leonard Fournette suspended one game
League bans RB for throwing punches in Week 12 loss
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 26, 7:35 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has been suspended one game for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's another blow for the few remaining teams that were able to survive Fournette's earlier absence due to his injured hamstring. T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde figure to form a committee in the likely event Fournette doesn't win his appeal. Yeldon will be the preferred play, if only because the Jaguars figure to be in negative game script against the Colts in Week 13.

Injury Leonard Fournette not listed on injury report
Practiced in full this week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 9, 1:10 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
#Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) practiced fully again Friday and has no injury status for Sunday's game, so he's ready to go. CB A.J. Bouye (calf) is out. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette is expected to play this week and should be a full go given he's not on the injury report. Indianapolis has only given up three rushing touchdowns to running backs this season.

Browns trade Carlos Hyde to Jaguars
Browns receive 5th round draft pick
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 19, 3:00 pm

Cleveland Browns
The Jacksonville Jaguars, in need of rushing help because Leonard Fournette is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, traded a fifth-round draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for running back Carlos Hyde on Friday. "I don't know when he'll be ready," Marrone said. "I really don't." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Jaguars are bolstering their RB depth due to Fournette's injury adding Jamaal Charles last week and now Hyde. T.J. Yeldon is expected to play this week despite dealing with an ankle injury. This move is a big boost to Nick Chubb's fantasy value as he will likely start on Sunday and be Cleveland's early-down and goaline option moving forward. Duke Johnson may finally get to see the volume the coaching staff touted during the off-season.

Injury Fournette out for Week 6
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 10, 10:42 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Running back Leonard Fournette will miss his fourth game because of a right hamstring injury and the Jacksonville Jaguars will be starting their third-string left tackle when the team plays at Dallas on Sunday. Left tackle Josh Wells (groin), who was starting after Cam Robinson's season-ending knee injury, nickelback D.J. Hayden (toe) and Fournette won't play Sunday, coach Doug Marrone announced Wednesday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Jags are thin at running back with Corey Grant being placed in IR with a Lisfranc injury. Diving deep into the free agent waters, they signed Jamaal Charles yesterday. T.J. Yeldon will remain the starter for Week 6 against the Cowboys. The Cowboys represent a negative matchup for running backs.

Injury Jags sign Jamaal Charles; ASJ, Grant on IR
RB Brandon Wilds released
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 9, 6:00 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
*Sign RB Jamaal Charles, RB Dave Williams and TE David Grinnage... * Release RB Brandon Wilds ... *Place TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, RB Corey Grant on injured reserve... (John Oehser on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Jaguars have shuffled their running back room with Grant (Lisfranc injury) being placed on IR, Wilds being released and David Williams called up from the practice squad. Yeldon will remain the running back to own with Leonard Fournette out with a hamstring injury. Niles Paul will move into the starting lineup with ASJ out with a core muscle injury.

Injury Leonard Fournette ruled out for Week 5
Hamstring injury

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette won’t play Sunday, HC Doug Marrone says... (John Oehser on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Jaguars aren't messing around this week, ruling out their star running back on Wednesday suggesting Fournette isn't close to playing with his injured hamstring. T.J. Yeldon should see the majority of snaps this week with Corey Grant filling a backup role. Yeldon gets a decent matchup against the leaky Chiefs defense, making him a solid RB2.

Injury Leonard Fournette out indefinitely
Aggravates hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 1, 5:30 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars' HC Doug Marrone said he doesn't know how much time Leonard Fournette will miss with his latest hamstring injury. Was two full games before, and it figures to be at least that this time. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: This may be the least surprising news of the day. It appears now the Jaguars were working on their timeline (i.e. as long as it took for them to lose a game, as they did in Week 3) rather than what was best for Fournette. Owners are completely justified in benching him until he proves he can make it through a full game, although one would think Jacksonville has learned its lesson. Expect T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant to form a committee again in his absence.

Injury Fournette expected to play
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 29, 11:00 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, who has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday, is expected to play against the New York Jets, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Fournette was hurt in the season opener against the New York Giants. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Fournette hinted on Twitter earlier in the day that he was likely to suit up on Sunday. Assuming he's close to full strength, he should see 20+ touches against the Jets making for a solid RB2 with RB1 upside.

Injury Leonard Fournette not expected to play
T.J. Yeldon should suit up
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 23, 8:35 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars’ RB update: T.J. Yeldon expected to play today. Leonard Fournette not expected to play today, per league sources. Jaguars going to play it safe with Fournette. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is somewhat of a surprise after Fournette was able to get in limited practices all week. Yeldon and Corey Grant should handle the bulk of the workload for the Jaguars against the Titans. With Fournette out last week, Yeldon saw 12 touches with Grant handling 10 including 6 receptions. Yeldon is a viable Flex play in most leagues.
