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 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Bruce Arians' love affair with Leonard Fournette has continued into 2021. Fournette led all backs in carries (9), targets (7) and receptions (5). The carries part isn't too surprising, but the fact Fournette was so involved as a receiver despite the team bringing in Giovani Bernard this offseason was unexpected. Although Fournette benefited from Jones being benched following a fumble, so his 65% offensive snap count isn't expected to be the norm every week. Still, it appears as of now that Fournette is the best of the Bucs' three running backs to own in fantasy. He faces a Falcons defense that gave up 170 scrimmage yards to running backs in Week 1, so it's a good matchup. We like Fournette as an RB3/flex play in Week 2.
