"Playoff Lenny" had nearly 1,200 all-purpose yards, including a career-high 523 receiving yards, along with 6 TDs last season, Schultz went on to say. Fournette's role in the offense could come in the passing game, an area where Cook has been hit and miss. In Week 8 Cook had just one catch for six yards, but collected three catches for 46 yards and a TD in Week 7. Fournette could also steal some goal line TDs should the Bills opt to go away from Allen in those situations.
TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Carolina Panthers
The Bucs leaned heavily on Leonard Fournette last week as he saw 29 total offensive touches for 162 scrimmage yards. Broken down, Fournette ran 20 times for 72 yards and caught nine passes for 90 yards. Fournette touched the ball 29 times on 49 snaps, which is nearly a touch on 60% of his snaps. We may not see quite that volume again this week, but it shows the Bucs aren't scared to give Fournette the ball still despite the presence of rookie Rachaad White. Although things could get difficult this week as Fournette draws a tough matchup vs. the Panthers (9th aFPA). Fournette struggled against Carolina earlier in the season, rushing eight times for 19 yards with two catches for seven yards. In fact, it was his worst game of the season in terms of total yards. Despite that, he should still be viewed as a solid RB2 option in Week 17. He's been a really strong receiving threat throughout the year, averaging nearly five catches a game.
