Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette may not have his fifth-year optioned exercised, according to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union.
Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off a strong 2019 campaign, but while he stayed relatively healthy and made progress as receiver, injuries remain a concern. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Jacksonville wait and see how he holds next year up before picking up his option or talking an extension. In the meantime, Fournette should at least be a high-floor, volume-based RB2 in 2020.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (illness) tweeted Saturday, Dec. 28, that he doesn't expect to play in the Week 17 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He was downgraded earlier Saturday to doubtful. 'Unfortunately I want be able to play tomorrow due to the flu I have, my brothers know I wish I can ball with them, hopefully I see some of them same faces on my team next year,' Fournette posted on his Twitter account.
Huddle Up: Rookie Ryquell Armstead is the next man up, and will be a rock-solid RB start if Fournette does indeed miss his first game of the season.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (illness) on Saturday, Dec. 28, was downgraded to doubtful for Week 17 with an illness.
Huddle Up: Fournette has played in all 15 games so far and is averaging a massive 22.7 touches per contest, but it's looking like he'll fall just short of playing his first full season. Hopefully, though, his fantasy owners who are still playing have handcuffed him with Ryquell Armstead. We're all going to need to check the pre-game inactives list Sunday.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (neck) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Fournette has missed the last two days of practice, so there is a chance that he misses the Week 17 game. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active, but fantasy players will need to have other backs available in case he is ruled out.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (neck) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 25. The team did not practice Wednesday, and this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Given that he is limited on a Wednesday and not sitting out entirely, it should be viewed as a positive sign for his availability vs. Indy. The matchup isn't exactly ideal, but Fournette is a fringe RB2 or better flex option in PPR this week. His pass-catching ability has salvaged value most of the way.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 71 yards on 15 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16. He also caught three passes for 34 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Fournette was coming off a few disappointing weeks but bounced back with a solid performance this week. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 15 times for 42 yards and caught five of his seven targets for 31 yards in a 20-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Fournette has been held to 50 rushing yards or less in three straight games, but fortunately for fantasy owners, his increased role in the passing game this year has allowed him to salvage decent point totals more often than not. At worst, he should be a volume-based RB2.
