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.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 @ Buffalo Bills

Leonard Fournette has been one of the most surprising fantasy players so far this year. Not so much for his work on the ground, but for his work as a receiver. Last week he finished 7-48-1 on eight targets, giving him four straight games with at least six receptions. Heading into this week, Fournette leads all running backs in receptions (58). He also crossed the 1,000-yard scrimmage mark on the season. He's become a true RB1 as the lead back in a high-powered offense. He gets an OK matchup this week against the Bills. Fournette's receiving stats could take a hit as Buffalo has been tough on receiving backs this year, giving up the third-fewest (tied) receptions and fifth-fewest receiving yards to the position. But we wouldn't be worried too much about the matchup given Fournette's recent production. He should be viewed as a strong RB1 play in Week 14.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Atlanta Falcons

Leonard Fournette really put the Four in Fournette last week as he finished with four touchdowns (3 rushing, 1 receiving). Even if you take the touchdowns away, Fournette was extremely productive, rushing 17 times for 100 yards and catching 7-of-8 targets for 31 yards. He also played on 81% of the offensive snaps, just the second time this season he's played at least 65%. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Falcons this week, who have allowed the 7th-most average fantasy points to opposing backs. Fournette had 76 scrimmage yards in his previous game against Atlanta, but that was in Week 2 when he had more of a timeshare with Ronald Jones. Fournette has distanced himself since then, so we'd expect more than the 15 touches he got in that game. Fournette has established himself as a strong RB1 play, especially in a favorable Week 13 matchup.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Indianapolis Colts

Leonard Fournette maintained his role for the most part last week as he finished with 10 carries for 35 yards and caught all six of his targets for 39 yards. He was unable to find the endzone, however, as Ronald Jones ended up vulturing a touchdown on the goal line. Heading into Week 12, fantasy owners can expect Fournette to keep his usual production. So we should see slightly above 10 carries with around five receptions for ~80 scrimmage yards. He does get a fairly tough matchup vs. the Colts, but his production should be fine. He should be viewed as a low-end RB1 or a strong RB2 play this week.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. New York Giants

Leonard Fournette ran 11 times for 45 yards last week, but his real impact was as a receiver. Fournette caught 8-of-9 targets for 45 yards, giving him 90 scrimmage yards on the game. Fournette's role as a receiver this year has been fairly surprising as he's already passed his reception totals from a year ago. Fournette has been the clear RB1 in Tampa Bay, and he'll maintain that role in a favorable Week 11 matchup vs. the Giants. New York has given up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, making Fournette a great start. He'll be a strong RB1 play in Week 11.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 @ Washington Football Team

After a strong four-game stretch, Leonard Fournette had a poor performance in his last outing, finishing with just 43 scrimmage yards, his second-fewest in a game this season. Fournette played about the same amount of snaps, as usual, he just didn't see the touches he usually does. Fournette averaged over 20 touches per game in the four games leading into Week 8, and had just 11 touches in that game. Fournette gets an OK matchup this week against Washington. Washington has the odd distinction of allowing the most receiving touchdowns (7) to running backs this year, and Fournette could get more targets this week if Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski are all inactive. We like Fournette as a low-end RB1 play in Week 10 vs. Washington.

TB RB Leonard Fournette - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at New Orleans Saints

Leonard Fournette had another strong game last week, finishing with 15 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown. He had his worst performance of the season as a receiver, catching just two passes for nine yards, but he did have four targets which is a number he's seen in every game this year. Over the Bucs' past four games, Fournette has really taken hold of the starting role, averaging over 20 touches per game in that stretch. He had decreased playing time last week, but only because the Bucs pulled their starters late. Fournette should be a strong RB2 play this week, although he does get a tough matchup vs. the Saints. New Orleans is seventh in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to running backs. The Saints are allowing just 80.8 rush yards per game, which is the third-best in the league.
