2019 RTSports Outlook

Fournette was a huge fantasy bust last season, having injury issues throughout the season that limited his playing time and effectiveness. He played eight games and managed just 624 total yards. He did have a nice three-week stretch of games in Weeks 10 through 12, showing his promise. He had scores each of those games and more than 100 total yards all three of those games. He did not top 50-rushing yards the rest of the way, though, and missed two more games because of injury. Fournette will continue to be the lead back for the Jaguars and carry the load for the team, hoping to put last season behind her. Remember, he had nearly 1,400 total yards his rookie season. Fournette is a big back that can carry the load. He runs with a lot of power but also has the speed to make plays to the outside. Fournette doesn't have great moves in space and some injury concerns as evident by his first two years, but is a pretty complete back at this stage of his career. He also isn't a bad pass catcher.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Fournette is capable of being an elite fantasy back but is a concern after last year. Plus, he hasn't been able to stay healthy two straight seasons. Take him as a top No. 2 back and hope for the best. He can get around 1,400 total yards, double-digit scores and 40 receptions.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will be a big part of the passing game with QB Nick Foles in 2019, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Fantasy Spin: Fournette has just 48 career catches for 487 yards and two touchdowns over the first two seasons of his career. Foles most memorably hooked up with RB Corey Clement four times for 100 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl LII. Fournette could be a huge steal if he continues to go in the third round of PPR drafts.

Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said that running back Leonard Fournette will be a big part of the team's offense in 2019. "Im going to call it what it is: Hes going to be a major reason where our offense goes. Im not going to sugarcoat that. Leonard Fournette needs to be a big part of this offense," DeFilippo said. Fournette was a bust last year, missing eight games last season with injuries and one to a suspension. He finished with 439 yards rushing and five touchdowns after rushing for 1,040 yards and five scores as a rookie. The 24-year-old still has a lot of upside in a run-first offense with a better quarterback at the helm in Nick Foles, but he'll be a risk/reward low-end RB1 because of the fact he's only played in 21 games in his first two seasons in the NFL.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is being counted on to have a big season in 2019. 'We're really looking forward to Leonard having a big year,' offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said this week, via the team's official website. 'I'm going to call it what it is: He's going to be a major reason where our offense goes. I'm not going to sugarcoat that. Leonard Fournette needs to be a big part of this offense. The harder he works -- which he is right now -- that's going to be not only good for our offense, but good for our team.'

Fantasy Spin: Fournette's numbers were down markedly across the board last season as he played in only eight games due to injuries and suspension. However, we've seen what he can do when in the lineup (1,342 total yards, 10 TDs as a rookie) and that's why he will be drafted as a high-end RB2 this summer.

Apr 16 1:03pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette won't face discipline from the team following his recent arrest for driving with a suspended license, head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, April 16.

Fantasy Spin: Fournette has RB1 upside, but he should be valued as a RB2 with all the other factors, including his injury history, included.

Apr 11 4:13pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was arrested Thursday, April 11, for allegedly driving with a suspended license. He paid a $1,508 bond and was released. The third-year running back's licenses had been suspended last November when he was cited for driving 37 miles per hour in a 25 mile-per-hour zone. He had not paid the required fine.

Fantasy Spin: Fournette has dealt with injuries and been accused of having a bad attitude, now he adds this to the unflattering list of baggage. We know that Fournette is capable of achieving RB1 status, but if these distractions persist he may be a fantasy disappointment in 2019.

Mar 20 3:03am ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has and will continue to work out with new University of Wyoming director of sports performance Ben Iannacchione, who spent six of the past seven seasons working in the strength and conditioning program at LSU - Fournette's alma mater. Fournette also spoke with executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin, who still has 'full confidence' in the player he selected No. 4 overall in 2017. 'With Leonard, a prepared Leonard coming into camp with a mindset that he discussed and we talked about ... I have full confidence in him. He does have some things he's got to prove when he comes back about his preparation, but he's a young, young player, he loves football, had an outstanding year, had a very disappointing year, and I think he wants to - we want him to be a great player and I think he's in the same mindset,' Coughlin said.

Fantasy Spin: Fournette was among the bigger disappointments in fantasy in 2018, twice missing an extended period of time with hamstring injuries and earning a suspension for coming off the sidelines to throw a punch in Week 12. Owners have every right to avoid him for his lack of durability, but he is also shaping up to be a value pick if he slides into the late third round area of fantasy drafts. Until further notice, he will still be the focal point of the offense. He'll also have plenty of motivation on what should be an improved offense.

Jan 10 3:13pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette met with executive vice president Tom Coughlin and other members of the team's front office to clear the air regarding his up-and-down 2018 season and perceived negative attitude, according to sources. The meeting seemingly went well for both sides and they are prepared to move in a positive direction.

Fantasy Spin: There had been whispers of Fournette possibly leaving the Jaguars after two years, but those were unfounded and seem to have already been quenched. There is risk in drafting Fournette, leading with the fact that he has missed 11 games in his first two seasons. The talent is evident, though, and he must still be viewed as a second or third-round fantasy draft pick.

Jan 3 2:23am ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not expected to be released during the offseason, according to's Tom Pelissero. Fournette was criticized by Tom Coughlin, the team's executive vice president of football operations, for 'disrespectful' behavior during the team's Week 17 loss, and there were also reports that the remaining guaranteed money in Fournette's contract was voided by the Jaguars due to his suspension earlier in the season.

Fantasy Spin: Fournette has been solid for the Jags, though thus far he hasn't been the game changer that other recent first-round backs like Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott have been. The LSU product has also missed 11 of 32 games during his two seasons, creating a medical red flag moving forward. Heading into 2019 he looks like a borderline RB2/RB3 candidate depending on what changes the offseason brings.

Dec 31 11:53am ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was stripped of the guaranteed money in his contract due to his suspension, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Fantasy Spin: That certainly won't make Fournette happy, but there isn't much fantasy impact on this news. He is too talented not to utilize in 2019, and he'll be on the back end of the RB1 group.

Dec 30 11:53am ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 17 game.

Dec 28 5:43pm ET

Dec 28 1:23pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars CB CB A.J. Bouye (toe), K Josh Lambo (groin) and RT Josh Wells (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 28, were ruled out for Week 17. RB Leonard Fournette (foot/ankle) is listed as doubtful.

Dec 28 12:43pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is listed as doubtful for Week 17 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Spin: Carlos Hyde is questionable with a knee injury, so the Jaguars may be forced to go with T.J. Yeldon and seventh-round rookie David Williams. Fournette has undoubtedly had a disappointing season, although he never could seem to get right physically and watched his offensive linemen drop like flies throughout the season. He'll likely be viewed as an RB2 in 2019 drafts.

Dec 28 12:03pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) was out of practice Friday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Spin: His status appears grim for Week 17. Carlos Hyde could be an RB2 against the Houston Texans.
