Draft note
by John Paulsen
After Ronald Jones landed on the COVID-19 list, Fournette started the team’s final seven games, averaging 16.9 touches for 87 yards and 1.0 touchdowns, including 135 total yards and a score against the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Jones was a more efficient runner–5.09 yards per carry–during the season, while Fournette averaged just 3.78 YPC. But in the postseason, the production flipped. Fournette posted 4.69 YPC while Jones managed just 3.97 YPC. Did “Playoff Lenny” do enough to win the RB1 job heading into the season? Earlier this summer, Bruce Arians indicated that they’d be “splitting time” if they were both healthy. Complicating matters, Giovani Bernard was added to the mix, so the third-down snaps for both players are under serious pressure.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Los Angeles Rams

Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones actually had a fairly even split in terms of playing time (31 snaps compared to 26), but Fournette finished with way more touches (15 to 7). Last season, Jones had the slight edge over Fournette, but it's clear so far this year that the roles have reversed. Fournette was OK, finishing with 76 total yards and no touchdowns. He also had a fumble, but Bruce Arians didn't send him to the shadow realm as he did with Jones. He gets a pretty tough matchup this week against the Rams. We're expecting a similar performance as to what he had in Week 2, making him a solid RB3 or flex play for Week 3.
