Jags HC Doug Marrone blames offensive line for lack of run game

Coach Doug Marrone made it pretty clear that the blame for the Jacksonville Jaguars' inability to effectively run the ball has nothing to do with Leonard Fournette.

It’s pretty much all on the offensive line.

“I feel like we aren’t giving Leonard a chance,” Marrone said. “Things are happening too close to the line of scrimmage or even on our side of the line of scrimmage. I think the first thing we have to emphasize is creating that push or being able to get into the line of scrimmage before something happens."

Fantasy Impact: 

Fournette finished with 66 yards rushing on Thursday night, but that was thanks to a 69-yard run late in the game that got him back in the positive numbers. The story said he only had six carries for gained yards against the Titans. ESPN says Fournette is averaging just 1.8 yards before contact which means he's getting hit as soon as he gets to the line of scrimmage.
