|Injuries and behavioral issues forced Fournette to play in just eight games last season, effectively torpedoing the seasons of those unfortunate owners who used a first-round draft pick last summer on former LSU star.
In those eight games, Fournette averaged just 3.3 yards per carry, but he did reach the end zone six times and posted 185 yards on 22 receptions. Fournette has yet to reach the 4.0 YPC plateau in the NFL, and he continues to be a risk due to possible injuries and being a knucklehead on and off the field.
Those risks have pushed his draft stock from a consensus late-round pick in 2018 to a third or fourth-round value in 2019. Volume and the ability to score touchdowns makes Fournette a nice RB2 target for owners willing to take the risk, and the lack of any real competition on the depth chart leads us to believe he will garner a sizable percentage of the Jaguar carries.
|John DeFilippo out as OC in Jacksonville|
One-and-done yet again

FFToday's Take: Most fans will see this move as a good thing, but one has to wonder if DeFilippo didn't have a small hand in getting a career year out of Leonard Fournette, play a pivotal role in D.J. Chark's breakout season or have something to do with Gardner Minshew being a quick study. Expect the Jags to go with a run-first play-caller this time, but it remains to be seen if he'll do any better than DeFilippo, who has lasted no more than one year in all three offensive coordinator stints.
| Leonard Fournette downgraded to Doubtful|
Ryquell Armstead expected to start

FFToday's Take: Fournette had been listed as questionable with a neck injury but has since been downgraded. Expect him to be on the inactive list tomorrow. In his absence, Ryquell Armstead should get the start and will be a viable DFS salary saver.
