Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette posted seven runs for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added one reception for nine yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The total yardage was awful, but at least Fournette was able to find the end zone. It was tough sledding on both sides, as the Bucs ran for just 42 yards and 2.3 yards per carry, with the Rams going for 37 yards and 1.9 yards per tote. Fournette will look for more open spaces in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed eight times for just 19 yards in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers and he added two grabs for 11 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Fournette was completely outshined by Ronald Jones II in this one, so his fantasy production was rather limited. Jones ran for 192 yards, including a 98-yard touchdown, so Fournette's role isn't likely to change anytime soon. He should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams, with lesser value in standard play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette caught six passes for 41 yards in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: On an evening in which the Bucs set the NFL record for fewest rushing attempts in a game, Fournette carried the ball just once for no gain. He did generate a little value in the passing game, but he's in the same boat as Ronald Jones as an unreliable RB3/flex.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed 15 times for 52 yards in Week 8 against the New York Giants and he added three receptions for 19 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Fournette was used mostly as the lead back in this one after Ronald Jones had an early costly fumble, relegating him to the bench for long stretches while Fournette did his thing. His fantasy owners hope that's the same touch distribution in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette was tabbed as the 'nickel' back for head coach Bruce Arians, as he is expected to play in hurry-up and obvious passing situations. The role is a big reason he played more snaps in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders, supplanting RB LeSean McCoy from the role.
Huddle Up: Ronald Jones is the bellcow back for the Bucs, but that's right now. The tailback picture has changed all season, and will continue to change. Jones is a decent RB2 in most fantasy formats, while Fournette is more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, with lesser appeal in standard play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed 11 times for 50 yards and caught six passes for 47 yards in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: After missing almost three games, Fournette led all backs with 17 touches in his return, and he had the biggest role in the passing game. He will continue to split carries with Ronald Jones, but Fournette has value as a flex play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Fournette in on track to play but probably will see limited touches because Ronald Jones has played well while he has been sidelined. Fantasy players likely have better options available and can keep Fournette on the bench.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Fournette appears to be on track to play in Week 7 but probably will serve as the No. 2 running back since Ronald Jones has been playing well. He probably will see a handful of carries during the game and may only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Fournette hasn't played since Week 3 and may have some trouble wrestling work away from RB Ronald Jones. He should be left on the bench in all but the deepest of leagues this week.
