2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Leonard Fournette gets a bad rap. He has been on one of the worst teams in the league since he was drafted 4th overall in 2017, yet he has produced each year. He has never produced at the level expected of a player drafted that highly, but then the team around him has been mostly awful.

His yards-per-carry average was the highest of his career in 2019 at 4.3, and that was behind the 27th-best run-blocking offensive line, per Football Outsiders. He has never been known as a pass-catcher but had 76 receptions last season on 100 targets. He logged nearly 1,700 all-purpose yards, and it seems the only reason folks are down on him (myself included) is that he has not turned his touches into more touchdowns. On 341 touches in 2019 he scored only three times.

However, in 2017 and 2018 he scored 10 and 6 times, respectively. So could it be that he scored so seldomly because his team was so rarely in a position to score? That is certainly part of the story. Still, it is hard to trust a back on such a poor team, with a quarterback who is still hard to have faith in. Therefore, most fantasy players will avoid Fournette until at least the third round, maybe the fourth. But the upside is there. Any player who is likely to touch the ball 300 times, as Fournette is, is a very valuable player to roster.

He is unlikely to receive 100 targets again, especially since new play-caller Jay Gruden brought in Chris Thompson to be his third-down back. But with a better offensive design, it is also likely that defenses will have a harder time shutting down the offense, leading to more effectiveness in moving the ball, and more scoring opportunities. It seems likely that Fournette will be on the move to a new team after this season, which could lead to him being in a much better situation in 2021. In short, Fournette is a nice buy-low candidate this season, particularly in dynasty.
