| Leonard Fournette practicing Wednesday|
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 20, 11:06 am
|The Jaguars didn’t need running back Leonard Fournette in the lineup to rout the Texans last weekend, but they’d prefer the rookie be healthy enough to play even if they have other ways to beat their opponents.
Fournette appears to be on track to get to that point. Fournette’s not on the list of players set to sit out of practice on Wednesday after he missed all of last week’s work with the quad injury that also kept him out of the lineup against Houston
FFToday's Take: This is good news for the Jags, but doubt still remains for Leonard Fournette owners. Jacksonville's primary concern is getting ready for a playoff run and that may lead to a more cautious approach with their rookie running back down the stretch. Chris Ivory rushed for 42 yards on 17 carries in Week 15 and should continue to have a role in the rushing game even if Fournette returns to the lineup in this weekend's road matchup with the 49ers.

FFToday's Take: Fournette missed practice all week, so it's not much of a surprise that he will miss Week 15. In his absence, Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will handle the backfield duties against the Texans. There's no clear indication on who the lead back will be but Ivory will likely get the first crack to make an impact.

FFToday's Take: Fournette missed practice all week making him a true question mark for Sunday's game against the Texans. The Jaguars may take a cautionary approach thinking they can beat Houston with T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory at running back. We should get more updates on Fournette's status over the weekend.

|Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette, questionable for today with an ankle injury, is active vs Browns, per @mortreport. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It's hard to imagine Fournette not being limited in some capacity. The risk of re-injury makes him a risky play in Week 11. Chris Ivory is battling an illness and be limited as well, meaning T.J. Yeldon could get some extra run.

Team optimistic he will play

|After not practicing Friday, #Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is questionable & will have a pre-game evaluation to determine whether he plays. The team is optimistic that he will, I'm told. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Fournette missed practice Friday which isn't a good sign. Even if he plays, he'll obviously not be 100 percent making him a tough start for fantasy owners. Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon would form a committee if Fournette sits.

FFToday's Take: Fournette's ankle injury appears to be a lingering issue. He missed much of the 4th quarter last week and seen limping around on the sidelines. It's possible Fournette could be limited in Week 11 in a bad matchup against the Browns. T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory could see more work

Violated team rules

FFToday's Take: Whoa. Chris Ivory will get the start with T.J. Yeldon seeing as well. Last time Fournette missed, Yeldon had the better fantasy day. Bengals giving up the 7th fewest FPTs to RBs.
| Fournette, Westbrook back at practice|
Rookie RB, WR making progress from injuries

FFToday's Take: Fournette almost played in Week 7 before the team's bye this past weekend, so his return is not a surprise. Westbrook's return is also shocking, but a full week of practice would put him on track to make his NFL debut in Week 9 versus the Bengals. While the Jaguars will probably ease him at first, Westbrook is the type of talent capable of emerging as the team's top receiving option in short order and making a fairly big impact in fantasy before the end of the season.
| Leonard Fournette not expected to play|
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 21, 11:00 pm
|A surprise: The Jaguars are not expecting to have star RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) vs. Colts, sources say. Sunday, then bye week to rest. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Fournette missed practice all week and it appears the Jags will error on the side of caution and let their star running back sit in Week 7 with a bye looming in Week 8. In his absence expect Chris Ivory to start at running back with T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant also active. Ivory is an easy RB2 with RB1 upside in a matchup against the Colts who have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to RBs.

|Jaguars tailback Leonard Fournette missed a third consecutive day of practice Friday with a right ankle injury and is listed as questionable to play Sunday at Indianapolis. Also questionable are receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and free safety Tashaun Gipson (neck). Both did limited practice work on Friday. (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Fournette injured his ankle last week but has maintained all week that he will play Sunday. We shall see. If Fournette misses, Chris Ivory would likely get the start with T.J. Yeldon filling a backup role.
