Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Leonard Fournette said he would like to re-sign with the Buccaneers this offseason but does not know what will happen during the offseason.
Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off a terrific postseason where he posted 448 total yards and four touchdowns in four games. He should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits free agency and could find a starting job. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back next season depending on his situation.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Leonard Fournette has interest from the Bucs in returning for 2021.
Huddle Up: Fournette may be in line for a big payday after a great postseason run. If he lands elsewhere with a bigger role, he could return to low-end RB1 status. If he returns to share work with Ronald Jones, Fournette is an RB2 or RB3 in fantasy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette had 97 carries for 367 yards and forced 11 missed tackles during the postseason after rushing for 300 yards and forcing 12 missed tackles on 64 carries in the regular season.
Huddle Up: An injury to Ronald Jones late in the year likely played a part in Fournette's increased role in the playoffs, but he took full advantage of the opportunity. He will be a free agent heading into 2021, but his postseason performance was a reminder that he can be a solid fantasy starter when given the reins to a backfield.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is a player the Buccaneers will be open to re-signing this offseason depending on the amount of interest he receives in free agency, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Huddle Up: Fournette recorded 600 total yards and six touchdowns during the regular season and has posted 313 yards and three touchdowns in three playoff games. He should receive interest from multiple teams and could be the starter for the Bucs in 2021 depending on what they do at the position. Fournette will have fantasy value and could be a starting option in some leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette has not fumbled since Week 17 of the 2017 season -- a total of 613 carries -- according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Fournette has logged a league-most 48 rushing attempts this postseason and also has accounted for 62 of the Bucs' 90 running back touches in the playoffs, including 14 receptions for 102 yards on 17 targets. Ronald Jones will still be involved but isn't as careful with the rock (2 fumbles this season), and has watched as Fournette has emerged as the Bucs' main man.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is expected to start in the team's divisional-round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 17, against the New Orleans Saints, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday.
Huddle Up: Fournette got the start in the wild-card round against Washington and had a season-high 132 total yards and a touchdown on 23 touches. The matchup is much tougher this week against the Saints, but Fournette figures to see plenty of work again with fellow RB Ronald Jones iffy with a quadriceps injury.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (abdomen) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Fournette should still have a decent role in the offense even with Ronald Jones back in the lineup. He can be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (abdomen) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Between his injury and the likely return of backfield mate Ronald Jones, Fournette will be a risky flex option against the Atlanta Falcons in the final regular season game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (abdomen) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Fournette will be a risky fantasy option in Week 17, like most skill players for Tampa Bay. RB Ronald Jones was activated from the COVID-19 list this week but it's unclear who'll be the top back in a favorable matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones figures to get plenty of work in preparation for the postseason.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 34 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 16. He also caught three passes for 32 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Buccaneers opened a big lead during the first half of the game, so it looks like Fournette was not used much after halftime. Ronald Jones may return next week, so Fournette's role is uncertain. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option next week if Jones remains unavailable.
