2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Fournette has a nose for the end zone, finding pay dirt 10 times last season, and his chemistry with Tom Brady has made him a critical part of the passing attack. He hauled in 69 passes for 454 yards (both the 2nd highest totals of his career) in 2021. But he is not a volume runner, ranking just 21st in attempts (180) and 19th in rushing yards (812) a season ago. Still, he did take on a larger role in the offense last season after his strong playoff run in 2020, and that doesn't figure to change this year, especially with the departure of Ronald Jones in the offseason.

However, fantasy owners should take note of the arrival of 3rd-round pick Rachaad White, who comes to the table with a similar skill set to Fournette, impressive size and athleticism, and a publicly stated itch to start. Fournette will begin the season as the bonafide starter. With OC Byron Leftwich and Brady both back, the system will remain largely the same, and Brady likes him. But if he struggles with conditioning, drops, or injuries, which have all ailed him in the past, he could yield significant touches by the end of the season. He's still a low-end RB1 option, but keep an eye on how things progress early in the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bucs rule out Leonard Fournette, activate Giovani Bernard
Rachaad White expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 26, 2:09 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers ruled out RB Leonard Fournette for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns and also activated RB Giovani Bernard from injured reserve. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette was listed as Doubtful on Friday so the downgrade to Out isn't a big surprised. Rachaad White is expected to get the start and has solid RB2 value as a volume play against a weak Browns run defense. Ke'Shawn Vaughn could also be in the mix.


Injury Gametime decision for Leonard Fournette, hip injury
Limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 12:59 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bowles says Vita Vea and Leonard Fournette are both making progress, will be game-day decisions Sunday. Only WR Russell Gage and G Luke Goedeke ruled out for Browns game. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette has been limited in practice this week with a hip injury and it sounds like the Bucs will take it up to gametime with him. If Giovani Bernard (ankle) gets activated off the IR this weekend, that may give us a clue as to Fournette's status on Sunday. If Fournette sits, then Rachaad White will be a priority play against a weak Bengals rush defense.


Injury Chris Godwin Out, Gage misses practice Friday
Bucs dealing with multiple WR injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 23, 4:12 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) and DT Akiem Hicks (foot) are out. LT Donovan Smith (elbow) TE Cade Otton (personal reasons) is doubtful. WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice Friday and is questionable. RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) was limited and questionable. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Godwin Out, Mike Evans suspended and Gage, Julio Jones and Breshad Perriman all listed as Questionable the Bucs are struggling for healthy quality receivers. Cole Beasley would have to be elevated from the practice squad on Saturday in order to play. Julio is shaping up to be a gametime decision and can't be trusted even if he does play. Perriman and Scotty Miller may get the most targets on Sunday.


Injury Mike Evans expected to play, Julio gametime decision
Knee injury for Julio Jones
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 17, 11:41 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Mike Evans, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a calf injury, is expected to play to play vs. the Saints, per source. Bucs don’t expect to know whether they will have WR Julio Jones, who is Q due to a knee injury, until they see how he feels during pre-game warmups. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio lasted one week before coming down with a nagging injury. He will test his knee in warm-ups to see if he can give it a go. In other Bucs injury news, Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Russell Gage (hamstring) are both expected to play.


TB to monitor Leonard Fournette's workload?
Beat writer expects Fournette to handle 60-70 percent of workload
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 5, 11:55 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Leonard Fournette's usage will be interesting to track -- he only hit 80 percent of offensive snaps once in first 10 games, then basically did in three straight games before the hamstring injury. I'd think they'd much prefer him in 60-70 percent range, utilizing the depth to help. (The Athletic - Greg Auman)

FFToday's Take: Auman's comments suggest Fournette is in no real danger of losing a big part of his workload to rookie Rachaad White. Backing off his workload is a great idea considering he has missed at least three games in three of his first five seasons. Continue to view him as a low-end fantasy RB1.
