Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette needs to be more involved later in games, according to head coach Doug Marrone Tuesday, Nov. 19, after Fournette didn't receive a carry once the Jaguars fell down 24-7 against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. 'That was my mistake. That was a big mistake by me,' said Marrone. '... I thought we needed to score points in a quicker fashion. That's what led to the increased pass attempts. That's on me as a head coach. We need to be more balanced moving forward.'
Huddle Up: It's common for running backs to see the ball less often when their teams are trailing, especially by multiple scores, but Fournette is one of the Jaguars' best pieces on offense. Fantasy managers would sure love to see him remain involved later in games rather than having his production capped at around three quarters of work.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed eight times for 23 yards in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added seven receptions for 34 yards on his seven targets.
Huddle Up: It was Fournette's lowest yardage total from scrimmage this season, although he did have five or more grabs for the third straight game. He'll look to rebound in Week 12 at Tennessee. He rushed for 66 yards with six grabs and 26 yards in Week 3 against the Titans in the first meeting.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette currently leads the league with 198 touches heading into a Week 9 matchup with the Houston Texans, and he has logged at least 75 total yards in eight straight games, the longest active streak in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Healthy and enjoying a larger role in the passing game, Fournette has emerged as a volume-based RB1 this season. He's locked in as the focal point of the Jacksonville offense, making him one of the safest fantasy options at his position.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette ran 29 times for a career-high 225 yards and hauled in two of his three targets for 20 more yards in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: After getting mocked for his Week 3 performance, Fournette looked much more like the difference-maker the Jaguars hoped they were getting with the fourth overall pick in 2017. Included in his huge rushing total was an 81-yard run that saw him show some vision and explosiveness. Fournette is locked into as much volume as any running back in fantasy, and he'll probably be in the RB1 conversation if he handles another 20 touches in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 15 times for 66 yards Thursday, Sept. 19, against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. He added six receptions for 26 yards. Fournette had negative yardage before rushing for a 69-yard gain late in the fourth quarter.
Huddle Up: One long run saved this from being one of the ugliest stat lines in recent memory. At one point, he had 14 touches for 15 yards and negative-8 rushing yards. Fournette's line isn't doing him any favors, and Tennessee devoted extra attention to slowing him down. The Jaguars head to Denver for Week 3 in a matchup that has some promise.
