Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette could see his reception total cut in half in 2020 because of the addition of RB Chris Thompson, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Fournette should continue to handle a majority of the carries, so even if he doesn't approach his total of 76 catches from last year, he should remain a high-volume back and a low-end RB1.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's contributions in 2019 were praised by head coach Doug Marrone. 'I think Leonard did everything that we wanted him to do - you talk about a workhorse,' Marrone said. 'A guy that carried the load, a guy that had a ton of receptions.'

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette ranked fourth among running backs in 2019 with an average of 2.99 yards after contact per attempt.
Huddle Up: Despite the trade rumors and having his fifth-year option declined, the Jags won't hesitate to lean on Fournette, who ranked third in the league with 341 touches in 2019. Value him a low-end RB1.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will be a big part of the offense in 2020, according to general manager David Caldwell. Fournette was involved in trade talks in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Fournette increased his value with 76 receptions last season, but he remains injury prone. He has missed 12 games in his three-year career, but he did play in a career-high 15 games last year. The team signed Chris Thompson, which could put a dent in Fournette's receiving numbers. View him as a high-end RB2 in PPR.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will not have his fifth-year option picked up this offseason, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Fournette will be a free agent next offseason and could be on the trade block before the start of the 2020 season. He is coming off a solid 2019 season and should be a weekly starting fantasy option no matter where he plays.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has drawn very little trade interest with multiple executives telling Jeremy Fowler of ESPN there has been 'zero movement' on a trade. Fowler adds many are expecting Friday, April 24, to be a busy day for moves around the league with teams having a better idea of what holes they'll have to fill.
Huddle Up: Fournette has largely underwhelmed since entering the league as a fourth overall pick in 2017. He rushed for a career-high 1,152 yards across 15 games last season, but he scored just three touchdowns. The Jags are unlikely to get much of value in a deal for the fourth-year player and may be better off holding onto him. He's a low-end RB2 whose value comes mostly from volume.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not expected to draw interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the trade market.
Huddle Up: Fournette really improved on his pass-catching ability, and he solidified himself as an RB1 in fantasy. He is a little brittle, though.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is reportedly on the trade block, and the Tacoma News Tribune's Gregg Bell expects the Seattle Seahawks to be among the teams looking into acquiring his services.
Huddle Up: It seems highly unlikely Seattle would trade for Fournette with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny already on the roster, but both backs are recovering from serious injuries. A more likely scenario would involve the Seahawks using a second-day pick at the position in order to buy them some time while Carson and Penny recover and give them a potential upgrade over Travis Homer. If Fournette finds his way to Seattle, however, he'd likely be a rock-solid fantasy RB2 on a team so committed to running the ball.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has been the subject of trade talks between the Jaguars and other teams, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fournette posted a career-best 1,152 rushing yards this past season and was also involved in the passing game with 522 receiving yards. He will be the starter no matter where he plays and likely will be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette had career highs in catches (76), receiving yards (522) and targets (100) in 2019.
Huddle Up: Fournette only caught 58 balls in his first two years combined, but his increased usage pushed him into the RB1 area in PPR leagues. Is this sustainable? It should be with Gardner Minshew under center. Fournette missed 11 games in his first two seasons but played in 15 of 16 last year. He's a low-end RB1, but you're buying high.
