Buy/Sell/Hold Report #1

By Draft Sharks Staff 9:09am EDT 9/18/19

BUY Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars

We’re gonna go ahead and steal a chart we posted in this year’s Breakout article:

That’s a plot comparing total touches and half-PPR points for RBs with 50+ touches over the past 3 seasons. The takeaway: more touches mean more fantasy points.

That seems like a simple idea, but fantasy owners often forget it when we get into the heat of the season. So we can often acquire RBs who are getting tons of touches but haven’t produced big fantasy points yet.

That’s Fournette. Check out how he ranks among RBs in various usage-based metrics through 2 weeks:

Carries - 18th

Targets - 8th

Opportunities (carries + targets) - 9th

Snap Rate - 3rd

Routes Run - 4th

Simply put, Fournette is getting RB1 usage. But he’s scored as just a low-end RB2 so far, sitting 22nd among RBs in half-PPR points.

He’s a good bet for better production the rest of the way.
