Week 3: vs Baltimore Ravens

All RB vs BAL

FBG says: Tough matchup. Leonard Fournette certainly looks the part of an NFL banger. He's difficult to bring down, dominating defenders at a high NFL level and finishing runs with authority. And he's showing himself fully capable in the passing game, not falling into the groove of two-dimensional plodders that telegraph a play. But he's consistently confronted with stacked defensive boxes - and protected by a fairly weak front line - so we've yet to see much dynamism. At his combine, Fournette That at least teases the explosive potential Fournette boasts if and when he's given a plus game script and a reasonable point of attack. Fournette did well to rack up 40 yards against a tough Titans front 7 last Sunday, and while the sledding stays tough against the Ravens, his start has been encouraging overall. If the Jaguars can provide him any room, he'll produce majorly at some point. The Ravens have been stout against the run thus far; neither the Bengals' batch of runners nor the Browns' elite front line have gotten the better of them. They've given some allowances to passing-down specialists Giovani Bernard and Duke Johnson, who have found room in space, but interior backs have yet to create anything of note. Jeremy Hill and Isaiah Crowell have combined for just 63 yards on 16 carries. There's a bit of injury concern at play: run-stuffing tackle Brandon Williams left Week 2 with a foot injury, but the team doesn't believe it to be serious, and he looks likely to suit up Sunday. If so, expect business as usual for a unit that's held 7 of its last 11 opponents under 100 ground yards.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs TEN (6 / 17 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)

Chris Ivory saw a ton of snaps this game. And carries. And passing targets. None by merit, as he was grossly ineffective the entire game, but he got them nonetheless. The team took a take it easy approach with Fournette between the 20s and if this continues then Ivory will continue to play. He is slow to the hole and only truly service on downhill run plays but the Jaguars offensive coordinator Nate Hackett must think otherwise.

2017 Week 1 vs HOU (9 / 42 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Ivory was used to spell Fournette and had one of his better performances as a Jaguar. He ran hard, broke tackles, and created his own opportunities as a runner. He is less of an explosive threat than Fournette is but he is still the veteran among the Jaguars running backs and the team seems to value that. His best run came on a counter ran behind the right guard and right tackle. He exploded through the hole and then used leverage to make the inside linebacker miss, and then broke a tackle attempt from a defensive back. He did not get any goal line snaps but he got several 3rd down snaps.


Latest News

Jaguars | Jacksonville RBs running into a crowd (Tue Sep 19, 11:14 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory (73.3 percent) and Leonard Fournette (52.5) rank first and fifth, respectively, in the NFL in regards to how often they face eight defenders in the box.

Our View: Opponents know the Jaguars want to run the rock and keep the ball out of the hands of QB Blake Bortles. They are responding by loading the box and daring the Jaguars to throw. If a game goes according to plan, Fournette is going to get plenty of work and he has no problem slamming it against an 8-man front all day. When games go off script (see Week 2 vs Tennessee), the running backs are put on the back burner.
