Leonard Fournette Fantasy Football News 2018

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.

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.

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) was non-committal when asked Friday about his status for this weekend's game against the Jets. “It’s wait and see,” he said. "It takes time for a hamstring and stuff like that. It’s getting back, getting into a routine – running and cutting.” HC Doug Marrone, meanwhile, called Fournette "50-50" for Sunday. It's a bit surprising after he was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice, but the Jags have been extremely cautious with this situation from the get-go. We'll find out Fournette's status by noon ET on Sunday.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. After being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, though, he was a full-go on Friday. That’s a good sign that he’ll play this weekend. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. An active Fournette will be a RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not expected to play today against the Titans as Jacksonville prefers to "play it safe" with his injured hamstring, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is expected to play through his own "questionable" tag. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday. Yeldon will be a solid fantasy starter if Fournette is indeed inactive.

Yeldon and Corey Grant.
