2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
When this 6'-0", 228-lb freight train of a back came to the Buccaneers last year as a waiver claim from Jacksonville, most people expected him to be the thunder to Ronald Jones' lightning. A power back with size and strength to move the pile, he's a dangerous between the tackles runner, and a serious threat in short-yardage and goal line situations, and he delivered with six rushing touchdowns in 2020, though he only toted the ball a total of 97 times.

Where he really made his impact was as a receiver out of the backfield. He caught 36 passes (tied for 2nd-most in his career) on 42 targets for 233 yards. Half those catches came in the Bucs' four postseason games, totaling 148 yards, averaging over 8.2 yards per catch and earning Fournette the moniker "Lombardi Lenny".

By that time, it had become clear that the Tampa Bay offense was becoming a hybrid of Bruce Arians' playbook and a list of Tom Brady's favorite things from New England - including a checkdown passing game. Essentially, Brady was looking for James White, who made a career as Brady's 3rd down security blanket with the Patriots. So, what Brady wants, Brady gets, or at least tries to get. Despite Fournette's playoff breakout, Tampa courted White in free agency. When he re-signed with New England, the team went and got RB Giovani Bernard who had almost 50 catches in 2020 in a reserve role, and not nearly as many drops as Jones or Fournette.

Fournette's inconsistency and his injury history have to be a concern for Arians and Brady. Fournette has a laundry list of lower body injuries dating back to his college days at LSU and has never played a full 16-game season in the NFL. The bottom line is splitting carries with Jones, and possibly yielding at least some 3rd down snaps to Bernard, is going to leave Fournette short of any real fantasy value until one of those guys ends up on the injured list.
