Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs IND (24 / 53 / 1 rush, 5 / 5 / 56 / 1 rec)
The Jaguars featured Fournette heavily in his return - especially in the first half as a runner. Overall, he did not have much success at all, as the Jaguars ran a lot of heavy personnel and slammed him up inside. He scored on a short 1 yard touchdown run in the second quarter - set up by his own catch-and-run play action screen pass. He needs to be used in the open field more in this way, instead of just running him into the teeth of heavy fronts. His second touchdown (also from 1 yard) came on an easy pass to the flats after running a play action fake.
2018 Week 4 vs NYJ (11 / 30 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Fournette started the game as a workhorse after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. He totaled 11 touches in the first quarter. 1st down runs under center were not effective. He did have one counter play that was well blocked to the playside and probably would have gone for a nice gain that got stuffed for a loss by Jamal Adams shooting a gap from the backside like a missile. Runs from shotgun were more successful. He exited at the end of the first quarter with hamstring tightness and never returned.
2018 Week 1 vs NYG (9 / 41 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
Fournette started the game off exactly how one would expect ñ as a workhorse lead back. Most encouraging were a catch-and-run off of play-action from the I formation on the first drive of the second half and his effective on shotgun runs/RPO gives. Unfortunately, he left the game midway through the second quarter with an injured hamstring, as his leg got caught underneath him as during a tackle.
