Free-agent RB Leonard Fournette (Buccaneers) is working out for the New England Patriots on Wednesday, July 19, per sources.
Huddle Up: Fournette was not good on the ground last year, totaling 668 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games, while also averaging a measly 3.5 yards per carry. It is worth noting the team around him stunk. He was an impact player through the air, though, tallying career-bests in catches (73) and receiving yards (523). Even still, it's doubtful he'd get that much action through the air with the Pats to be a consistent lineup option. Also, he'd be no better than the No. 2 behind Rhamondre Stevenson and would also have to compete with Pierre Strong for looks. If he ends up in New England, consider him a handcuff and someone to take a late-round flyer on at best until he proves worthy.

Free-agent RB Leonard Fournette (Buccaneers) was involved in an incident where his car caught fire June 27. Witnesses say Fournette was racing a motorcyclist on the highway. Florida Highway Patrol didn't have enough information to proceed.
Huddle Up: It doesn't appear Fournette was hurt in what seems like a scary incident. He still has a place on fantasy rosters once he lands with a new team.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette was officially released Wednesday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Fournette was not released with a post-June 1 designation. Despite how productive he was in his time with the Buccaneers, Fournette will likely have to wait a bit for his market to pick up. There is no question he was a favorite of Tom Brady, so perhaps another veteran quarterback with some clout will ask for his services down the road. As for now, the 28-year-old's fantasy stock appears to be in serious freefall.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is expected to be released when the new league year starts on March 15, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Buccaneers have a ton of work to do to get under the salary cap (they are roughly $56 million over the cap), so it only makes sense they would look to part with a 28-year-old running back on what figures to be a rebuilding team in 2023. Fournette is still very much a capable back in the league, but he is unlikely to be the fantasy force he was at times with Tom Brady. Rachaad White figures to take over as the starter in Tampa Bay, although his fantasy stock also takes a hit without Brady around.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is a candidate to be released this offseason because the team would save around $3.5 million in salary cap space if they move on from Fournette.
Huddle Up: Fournette posted 1,191 total yards this past season, but the team may want to go with Rachaad White as their main back moving forward. Fournette should be part of a committee for a team next season but probably will not be a weekly fantasy option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 28 yards on 10 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 17. He also caught four passes for 19 yards during the game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (foot) recently posted on social media - and has since deleted the post - that he has been playing through a Lisfranc injury in his foot.
Huddle Up: Fournette appeared on the injury report in Week 14 but has been absent from it over the last two weeks. It is unclear why he deleted his tweet minutes after posting it, although it is very possible a team official reached out to him to make him aware of the trouble the Bucs could get into if they are found guilty of "hiding" Fournette's injury. At any rate, Fournette's heavy usage in the passing game (68 catches in 2022) should keep him firmly in the RB2 conversation again in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers.
