2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The hype surrounding Leonard Fournette in fantasy circles seems to grow by the minute. Few players possess the size, speed and power and the early comparisons to players such as Adrian Peterson and Fred Taylor have created lofty expectations. The success of Ezekiel Elliott last year shows just how valuable an all purpose power back can be in a fantasy landscape riddled with RBBCs. Competition for carries comes in the form of the team's two most recent attempts at finding a lead rusher, Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon. While both players will have a role in the offense, neither will prevent Fournette from ascending to the top of the depth chart sooner rather than later. Not known for his receiving skills, Jacksonville's rookie horse has received passing grades on his hands during OTAs. Forecasting a few receptions into his early projections makes the former LSU Tiger an appealing fantasy running back with rare double-digit touchdown potential. Early drafters may be able to snatch him up in the middle of the second round but his value may climb to late first round status if he performs well in the preseason.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Leonard Fournette practicing Wednesday
Quad
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 20, 11:06 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
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 (ProFootballTalk)

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.


Injury Fournette out with quad injury
Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon in play for Week 15
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 16, 8:00 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will not play against Houston on Sunday, a league source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Fournette did not practice all week because of a quad injury. He also is still dealing with an ankle injury. (ESPN)

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.


Injury Fournette missed practice Friday
Didn't practice all week with quad injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 15, 11:40 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette missed his third straight day of practice today due to his quad injury. No practice all week. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

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.


Injury Fournette is active, Ivory battling illness
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 19, 11:10 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
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.


Injury Leonard Fournette will test ankle in pre-game
Team optimistic he will play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 19, 7:30 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
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.


Injury Fournette misses practice Friday, Questionable
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 17, 11:30 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars tailback Leonard Fournette was one of six players who did not practice Friday. Fournette was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday and Thursday. (Jacksonville.com)

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


Leonard Fournette inactive today
Violated team rules
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 5, 11:30 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
By deactivating RB Leonard Fournette for today’s game vs Cincinnati for violating team rule, HC Doug Marrone trying to establish a culture. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

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.


Injury Fournette, Westbrook back at practice
Rookie RB, WR making progress from injuries
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 30, 4:30 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
WR Dede Westbrook (core), RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) and C Brandon Linder (illness) practicing (Monday) for Jaguars. (Jaguars.com)

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.


Injury Leonard Fournette not expected to play
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 21, 11:00 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
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.


Injury Fournette misses practice Friday, Questionable
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 20, 2:15 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
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.
