Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette returned from his one-game suspension for Thursday's meeting with the Tennessee Titans, but he was never able to gain much traction, finishing with 36 rushing yards on 14 carries and getting stuffed multiple times at the goal line as the Jacksonville offensive line failed to open any space for him to find the end zone. Fournette added five receiving yards on two catches as well and while he has clear control of this backfield, the Jaguars sport a fairly one-dimensional offense, which could be a limiting factor for Fournette as the season winds down.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette returns to action in Week 14 following a one-week suspension for the team's game against the Colts. The second-year running back looks to continue his pre-suspension hot streak as he matches up against the sixth-best rush defense in the Tennessee Titans. Fournette will be the focal point of the Jacksonville offense in Week 14, a role in which minimal production was seen out of his replacements in Week 13. While he faces a tough matchup, Fournette's volume and sheer talent make him a lock in almost all leagues as a starting running back in Week 14.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette lost the appeal of his one-game suspension and will sit out in Week 13 against the Colts, according to a source. He was suspended following his Week 12 ejection for fighting with Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson. Although Fournette has five total touchdowns in his last three games, he's played in just five games all season and has been a big disappointment to his fantasy owners, mainly due to injury. In his absence this Sunday, T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde should split the workload. Yeldon is more attractive in PPR leagues, while Hyde should see more work on early downs.
