A Workhorse with a High Floor and No Ceiling
Leonard Fournette is locked into a massive rushing workload on a Jacksonville team that led the NFL in rushing attempts last season. He had 378 touches in 16 games (including playoffs) last season, and there's no reason to expect a lighter workload this season. In an era of running back committees, it's enticing to know your running back is guaranteed a heavy workload. Combine the role with one of the league's best offensive lines, and it's no surprise Fournette is a consensus first-round draft pick in all scoring formats. While his rushing totals are a given, he has elite upside because his role in the passing game may improve. He caught 43 passes last year, but he's capable of more. Plus, he has slimmed down to 223 pounds and increased his quickness, which could lead to higher efficiency and more big plays.
- Finished RB8 as a rookie
- The offense returns intact from a season ago
- Continuity benefits the incumbent starters
- An already good offensive line improved with the addition of guard Andrew Norwell
- Fournette has double-digit rushing touchdown upside
- He's capable of a larger role in the passing game
