What You Need to Know:

  • Despite opening the season sharing work with Ronald Jones, Fournette finished 2021 ranked 11th in opportunity share (carries + targets).
  • Fournette’s usage climbed after the Week 9 bye. He went from 56.4% carry share and 11.1% target share before the bye to 62% and 17.8% in healthy outings after the bye.
  • For comparison’s sake, “Lombardi Lenny” got 53% of carries and 15.2% of targets over the 4-game playoff run at the end of the 2020 season.
  • Fournette improved on Pro Football Focus rushing and receiving grade last season over 2020, his 1st year with the Bucs. His yards after contact per attempt and elusive rating also climbed.
  • Tampa Bay’s offensive line climbed from 9th in Football Outsiders’ adjusted line yards in 2020 to 5th last season. The Bucs lost G Ali Marpet to retirement, but they signed Shaq Mason in free agency to replace him. PFF graded Mason 6th-best among all guards as a run-blocker last season; 3rd-best the season before. He beat Marpet each time.
  • Fournette notoriously arrived for minicamp “a little heavy,” admitting that he weighed “240-something.” He also called 228-230 his target playing weight. Is that a concern? We’ll see.
  • The Buccaneers let Ronald Jones walk in free agency. They retained Giovani Bernard. The biggest addition was 3rd-round pick Rachaad White.
  • After allowing him to hit the open market, Tampa Bay re-signed Fournette for 3 years at $21 million, with $12 million of that guaranteed.
  • Bucs RB Leonard Fournette is down to 245 pounds and "back in shape," per insider Doug Kyed. Fournette's belly made headlines in June, but it sounds like he's back to playing weight.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Fournette took the backfield lead as last season wore on, and then the Buccaneers committed a surprising amount of money to bring him back in free agency. Tampa let Ronald Jones walk and added 3rd-round pick Rachaad White. We’ll see what that means for touch distribution. We’ll also see about Fournette’s waist line at the start of training camp. Assuming he’s in better shape at that point and stays healthy through camp, Fournette looks well set up to rank among the league leaders in opportunity share. He’ll belong in Round 2 of drafts across formats.

Leonard Fournette, RB TB

Leonard Fournette playing through Lisfranc injury

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette said in a since-deleted tweet that he's been playing through a Lisfranc injury. Fournette was on the injury report with a foot in Week 14 but hasn't been listed the past 2 weeks. And he just went for 162 total yards on 29 touches in Sunday night's win over the Cardinals. We'll keep an eye on Fournette this week, but it doesn't seem like this foot issue will impact his role in Week 17.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (foot) is expected to play today against the 49ers. Expect another backfield split between Fournette and Rachaad White.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (foot) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday and then did not practice on Friday. HC Todd Bowles “did not express significant concern” about Fournette on Friday, though, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine. We’ll look for further updates on his status but won’t get Tampa’s inactives until around 3 pm ET on Sunday. Fournette’s absence would turn Rachaad White into a borderline RB1, even in a tough matchup.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette was added to the injury report and limited in Thursday's practice with a foot issue. He, of course, just returned last week from a hip injury. We'll see what Fournette does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers.

The Buccaneers expect RB Leonard Fournette (hip) to play through his questionable tag for tonight's game against the Saints. That will likely return him to a backfield split with rookie RB Rachaad White, who led the way in the Week 12 game Fournette missed. Exactly what that split will look like is impossible to know. White saw elevated playing time in Week 10 -- before Tampa Bay's bye -- but Fournette left early with the injury. Both are in play for Week 13 fantasy football lineups and carry upside.
