Week 6: vs New Orleans Saints

All RB vs NO

FBG says: Tough matchup. Leonard Fournette had another productive outing last week against Carolina, rushing 23 times for 108 yards and his first touchdown of the season. This marked the second straight week Fournette has been given such a heavy workload, coming after his 29 carries for 225 yards in Week 4. While the volume certainly helps, both of his outings consisted of at least one big run after Fournette plugged away for mediocre gains for most of the game. The volume sets his floor, but Fournette will be reliant on that big play as he has not been very efficient on a per-carry basis this season. Part of that inefficiency comes from his offensive line, which is an average-at-best group that has struggled at the tackle position. Gardner Minshew flashed his legs last week as well, rushing seven times for 42 yards. This was his second game with over 40 rushing yards this season as Minshew clearly serves as a threat with his legs to opposing defenses. The Saints are playing well against the run this season, giving up just the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs (non-PPR scoring). They played well against Tampa Bay last week and shut down the likes of Ezekiel Elliott, Chris Carson, and Todd Gurley earlier in the season. While they have given up a rushing touchdown to running backs in three of their last four games, the efficiency of said running backs has been terrible. Interior defender David Oneyemata has played a big part in their success, while the recent return of Sheldon Rankins has also boosted this group. Safety Von Bell continues to play like one of the league's top run-defending safeties, but if the Saints have liability, it remains at linebacker as lack clear playmakers at that position. The Jaguars' defensive line should outmatch the Jaguars in the trenches, but they have yet to face a running back that has pounded out more than 20 carries against them this season. Fournette may struggle on most carries, but he certainly could bust a long run if he slips by to these Saints linebackers.
