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 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

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
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 3, 11:00 am

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.


Injury Leonard Fournette limited on Wednesday
Hamstring injury, Yeldon sidelined with ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 19, 5:30 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Running back Leonard Fournette worked on a limited basis Wednesday after missing Sunday’s victory over the New England Patriots with a hamstring injury. “He looked good,” Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles said of Fournette. "I think there is definitely more of an emphasis on throwing the ball when Leonard is not in there. We can’t do some of the stuff that our offense is built around doing when he isn’t healthy and in there." (Jaguars.com)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners should take note of Bortles' quote on their pass-heavy approach when Fournette is out of the lineup. It appears Fournette is on track to play this week but T.J. Yeldon missed practice today with an ankle injury.


Injury Jags not optimistic on Fournette's availability
Could be inactive Week 2
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 16, 1:30 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
There is a long time to go before game time, but the #Jaguars are not optimistic that star RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) will play vs. the #Patriots, sources say. Not a surprise, he didn’t practice all week and they did promote Brandon Wilds from the practice squad. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Adding a running back from the practice squad is good sign that the team expects to be without Fournette in Week 2. His absence would lead to an increased workload for T.J. Yeldon who would be inline for RB2 value against the Patriots.


Injury Fournette shaping up to be game-time decision?
Hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 13, 8:25 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jags RB Leonard Fournette on his hamstring injury and Sunday availability: “I started running on it today (he didn’t practice). It feels good. So that’s progress. We’ll see. It’s a game-time decision... I like my chances more and more as the day has gone on." (ESPN - Jeff Darlington)

FFToday's Take: Owners should obviously have a backup plan in place, but it's hard to imagine him sitting out against the Patriots if he is feeling good by the weekend. Although much has been made about Fournette's durability this week, there was some thought about him returning to last week's game before the team decided to play it safe. The Jaguars could always opt to have him split carries with T.J. Yeldon this week, but most owners should start Fournette if he is active Sunday.


Injury Fournette expected to test hamstring on Friday
Could play without practicing
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 12, 12:45 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Leonard Fournette, a second-year veteran who sustained a hamstring injury in the first half of the Jaguars’ season-opening victory over the New York Giants this past Sunday, is expected to work on the side when the Jaguars practice late Wednesday morning and early Wednesday afternoon. Marrone said the plan is to have Fournette test the injury Friday afternoon. (Jaguars.com)

FFToday's Take: Fournette left Week 1 with a hamstring injury and while the injury has been considered minor it appears the Jaguars running back will be limited or not practice at all until Friday. Marrone did go on to say that Fournette doesn't have to practice in order to play on Sunday. T.J. Yeldon would be a viable RB2 play in Week 2 if Fournette sits.


Injury Leonard Fournette has hamstring injury
HC believes ailment to be "minor"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 10, 6:55 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Doug Marrone: Doctors say RB Leonard Fournette has a "minor hamstring injury." (Phillip Heilman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Marrone told reporters after the game that Fournette's injury was in a "good part" of his hamstring and an injury that did not keep the running back from playing when he suffered a similar one in college. This week's practice reports figure to paint the picture as far as whether he'll suit up against New England. Given the opponent, owners should expect Fournette to play if at all possible in Week 2. T.J. Yeldon would be a solid RB2 play if Fournette has to sit.


Leonard Fournette in great shape
Down to 223 pounds
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 23, 6:20 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Leonard Fournette told me his weight is currently at 223 pounds, the lowest since he played at St. Augustine High School in 2013. (NOLA.com - Jeff Duncan)

FFToday's Take: Fournette reportedly played around 228 last season. Any weight loss figures to be a good thing for his ankles, although excessive weight hasn't been the reason he hasn't been able to finish strong in either of the last two years. The stars seem to be aligning for Fournette, who should in line for 300-plus rushing attempts behind an improved offensive line in an offense that will commit to feeding him. He's a great bet to reach elite fantasy status in 2018.
