Leonard Fournette Hard To Trust For Now

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has a great matchup ahead of him in Week 2 against the Panthers. Still, Fournette played just nine snaps and carried the ball five times for five yards in his Buccaneers debut. Game script may have limited his opportunities, though it's likely that he hasn't completely acclimated himself to a new playbook just yet. Fournette could potentially score a touchdown against a Panthers Defense that allowed three rushing scores in Week 1, but that's too risky for fantasy managers to count on. In all likelihood, the two-time, 1000-yard rusher will turn this backfield into a committee at some point. Keep him stashed on the bench.

Leonard Fournette Receives Only Five Carries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette finished his debut with five carries for five yards and one reception for 14 yards. After coach Bruce Arians promised a solid role for the new RB in Week 1, it was quite disappointing that Fournette couldn't muster much of anything while also getting a very limited amount of carries. This could be a factor of the Bucs trailing for most of the game against the Saints. With Ronald Jones II being the RB1, Fournette's role will be smaller. Therefore, he shouldn't merit fantasy consideration going forward until his role is solidified.

Leonard Fournette A Flex Play In Week 1

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will appear in a new uniform for Week 1 of the 2020 season after being surprisingly released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. Always known as a workhorse back in the NFL, Fournette will have to fight with Ronald Jones II for that role in Tampa. Still getting acclimated to his new team's system, Fournette will not have that role to begin the season. Head coach Bruce Arians made it clear the newly signed back will have a role for this week's bout against the Saints, though it's important to note New Orleans did allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points to backs last season. At this point, Fournette could play a bigger role in the passing game, but only time will help tell what his role on this team will be in the long run. For now, consider him a flex play in Week 1, as he should see some playing time based on what Arians said.
