Leonard Fournette Fantasy Football News 2018

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's appeal of his 1-game suspension has been denied. He's out for Sunday's game against the Colts. After Fournette was booted from last week's game, Carlos Hyde carried 4 times, while T.J. Yeldon tallied 1 carry and 3 targets. Expect similar usage this weekend, with Hyde leading in carries and Yeldon playing in passing situations.

The Jags have fired OC Nathaniel Hackett and benched QB Blake Bortles. Jacksonville sits 22nd in total yards per game; 28th in points per game. Hackett’s replacement is QB coach Scott Milanovich, whose background stems from the CFL and NFL Europe. Cody Kessler takes over at QB and figures to reduce the Jags’ turnover rate. He owns just 4 picks on 248 career attempts. Of course, it’ll be tough to trust any skill player not named Leonard Fournette down the stretch. Even then, Fournette will have to overcome the loss of top OL Andrew Norwell (ankle) to injured reserve.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report and will play against the Colts this weekend. He’s yet to make it through a full game this season, so there’s obviously some risk here. But Jacksonville has played it safe with Fournette this time, and he was a full-go in practice all week. He’s worth getting into most fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected back for this weekend's game against the Colts, although we'd feel a lot better about getting him into fantasy lineups if he's a full-go on Thursday and/or Friday.

Update: Jacksonville changed Fournette's participation to "full." Barring a setback over the next couple of days, he'll be safe to get into Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) participated in individual drills on Monday for the 1st time since re-injuring his hamstring in Week 4, The Athletic's Daniel Popper reports. Fournette is on track to return for this weekend's game against the Colts if he can avoid a setback in practice this week. We'll continue to monitor his status.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s tentatively expected back after the Week 9 bye. RB Carlos Hyde will make his Jags debut this weekend and figures to share ball-carrying duties with T.J. Yeldon. Yeldon will continue to dominate pass-catching work, though, and is the better fantasy play.

The Browns are trading RB Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville in exchange for a mid-round draft pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This doesn't bode well for RB Leonard Fournette's return from his hamstring trouble. Hyde joins T.J. Yeldon in the Jaguars backfield for now, although it's unclear if Hyde will be active for this weekend's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, Nick Chubb takes over as the primary ball-carrier in Cleveland. The rookie has flashed in limited chances, averaging 10.8 yards on 16 carries. He immediately jumps into the RB2 mix.

UPDATE: The Browns are receiving a 5th-round pick.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. We’ll see if he can return for Week 8, but Jacksonville might hold him out through the Week 9 bye. T.J. Yeldon gets another game as the Jags’ lead back and is a solid RB2 play, despite a matchup with a tough Houston run defense.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't practice on Wednesday. HC Doug Marrone said last week that Fournette had "a chance" to return for Sunday's game against the Texans -- but doing nothing on Wednesday has that looking unlikely. T.J. Yeldon figures to get another game as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Friday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) "has a chance" to return for Week 7. He ran off to the side of practice on Friday. We've been expecting Jacksonville to hold Fournette out through the Week 9 bye, but it sounds like the team is willing to bring him back sooner. We'll monitor his progress next week.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend. It's the 2nd week in a row that Fournette has been ruled out on Wednesday, which is usually a sign that he's nowhere close to playing. T.J. Yeldon will again serve as Jacksonville's feature back this Sunday.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is more confirmation than new information. Fournette missed 2 games with the hammy injury the first time around and could be sidelined longer this time. It's possible the Jags hold him out through the Week 9 bye. With RB Corey Grant (Lisfranc) on IR, T.J. Yeldon will see feature-back usage in Week 6.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed Wednesday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Chiefs this weekend. Fournette is likely looking at another multi-game absence after re-injuring his hamstring this past Sunday. T.J. Yeldon will operate as Jacksonville's lead back in a plus matchup in Kansas City, with Corey Grant as the change-of-pace.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will likely miss "at least" 2 games with his hamstring injury. It's unclear if Schefter was reporting or taking an educated guess. Fournette missed 2 games with the bum hammy the first time around, and aggravations tend to cost guys even longer. Jags HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he's not yet sure how long Fournette will be sidelined. We'll continue to monitor the situation, but fantasy owners obviously need to prepare to again be without their stud RB. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville's lead back for however long Fournette is out, with Corey Grant in a change-of-pace role.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Jets at halftime. We didn't see when he aggravated that bum hamstring, but the fact that Jacksonville was up 16-0 might have played a part in the decision to hold him out. We'll look for updates on his status.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game against the Jets. He got in a full practice on Friday, so we’re expecting him to at least be close to full-go.
