Draft note
by John Paulsen
The (now) 27-year-old Fournette was the RB5 prior to his ankle injury in Week 15, averaging 18.0 touches for 92 total yards and 0.77 touchdowns per game. The touchdowns are nice, but the key to Fournette’s scoring was his involvement in the passing game as he led all running backs in targets (77) through Week 14. The Bucs re-signed Fournette to a three-year deal worth up to $24 million, which indicates that he’ll continue to carry the load in Tampa. The team also re-signed Gio Bernard, who was a bit player in 2021, before drafting Rachaad White in the third round of the 2022 draft. It’s unlikely that White eats into Fournette’s workload as long as Fournette stays healthy. With Tom Brady back, this offense figures to be one of the most productive in the league, so Fournette’s positional ADP (RB12) makes a lot of sense.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. New Orleans Saints

Leonard Fournette continued his dominant season last week, rushing 19 times for 113 yards and a touchdown while also catching 4-of-7 targets for 19 yards. The Bucs have truly given Fournette the lead-back role in the past three weeks as he's played 80% of the offensive snaps or more in that stretch. Before that, he had only played more than 70% of the snaps once. And with more snaps comes more production, as Fournette has averaged 118.4 scrimmage yards with six total touchdowns in the last three games. However, his production could slow down somewhat this week in a tough matchup vs. the Saints, who have given up the fewest average fantasy points to opposing running backs. Fournette struggled in his first matchup. vs the Saints this year, finishing with 43 scrimmage yards on 11 touches. We'd expect better production than that this time around, but wouldn't anticipate a monster game. Despite the poor matchup, Fournette should still be viewed as a strong RB1 play this week given his recent production.
