Leonard Fournette's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

In his first two seasons in the NFL, Fournette has missed 14 games and when Fournette has played for the Jaguars, he hasn't looked worthy of being the 4th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. In 8 games in 2018 Fournette rushed for just 439 yards on 133 caries (3.3 yards per carry). Fournette went in the first or second round of most fantasy football drafts last season but finished the season outside of the top-30 running backs. SportsLine projects Fournette to finish 2019 with 856 rushing yards and 8 TDs on 239 carries (3.6 yards per carry). Fournette is also projected to have 44 receptions for 377 receiving yards this upcoming season. The Jaguars offensive line should be better this season with several starters returning from injury, but the 3.6 rushing average yards per carry and Fournette's injury history scares me. I would stay off from Fournette this season; He hasn't shown that he can stay healthy and hasn't been explosive.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Leonard Fournette to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 189 projected fantasy points puts him at #11 behind Todd Gurley and ahead of Dalvin Cook. He has averaged 12.3 fantasy points in his past 8 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.8 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Leonard Fournette is expected to improve on last season's #35 fantasy position rank.

LEONARD FOURNETTE WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Leonard Fournette is projected for 13.1 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #6 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Dalvin Cook but behind Joe Mixon. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#19). He is projected for 10.5 fantasy points.

LEONARD FOURNETTE IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($7.2K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($6.1K)

He is projected for 14.7 FanDuel points and 17.4 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1583 more than $7.2K on FanDuel and +$1547 more than $6.1K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
