Fantasy News: Bucs running backs

Looking at these Tampa Bay running backs, I don’t have a lot of confidence in any of them. I don’t know that we can count on any one guy getting a big workload.  more »



ROJO still the lead back for Bucs

Before fantasy owners rush to draft new Tampa Bay running back LEONARD FOURNETTE, it should be noted that head coach Bruce Arians said on Thursday that RONALD JONES remains atop theMore Bucs running back depth chart. Of course, Arians has said many things during an offseason in which Tampa Bay drafted rookie running back KE’SHAWN VAUGHN and signed veteran rusher LESEAN MCCOY. Less

Around the NFL: Fournette to Bucs

Leonard Fournette signed with the Bucs last night. It's not a completely shocking landing spot; some of us guessed Tampa Bay as a possibility back when he was released. The Bucs have talked out of both sides of their face when it came to their backfield all along.   more »

Fournette clears waivers, becomes free agent

After being released suddenly by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, 25-year old running back LEONARD FOURNETTE has cleared waivers and is now a free agent. With the deadline to claim Fournette now gone, he is free to negotiate with any team he chooses.


Factoid: Chris Thompson

Jacksonville’s dumping Leonard Fournette, and that’s got me very interested in Chris Thompson as a later-round pick. He should catch a ton of balls.  more »



Jaguars release RB Fournette

The Jacksonville Jaguars abruptly released running back LEONARD FOURNETTE this morning. Fournette had been having a productive training camp, but his three seasons in Jacksonville have been rocky. He was theMore fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but the Jaguars have been exploring trade offers during the offseason. With no apparent interest, they released him instead. More to come.

Around the NFL: Jaguars Axe Fournette

The Jaguars cut Leonard Fournette this morning. It's surprising, but not entirely shocking -- the team has seemingly wanted to move on from him for a couple of years now. (Tom Coughlin clashed with him more than once.) The Jaguars are not so quietly starting over, and now it's a brand-new backfield in Jacksonville.   more »


Fantasy News: Chris Thompson

I have some interest in Chris Thompson. Not as a headliner, but if we’re playing in a PPR format, he makes sense with a late-round pick as a depth option at running back.   more »



Jaguars moving forward with RB Fournette

Jacksonville GM Dave Caldwell said earlier this week that the team is going forward with LEONARD FOURNETTE as the starting running back heading into the upcoming season.

Fournette was the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft but he has failed to live up to expectations thus far. Less

So Leonard Fournette is probably done in Jacksonville. Once a guy is put on the trade block, he's probably either going to be dealt or released. What does his future likely hold?  more »



Jaguars open to trading RB Fournette

The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly had trade discussions with other teams about running back LEONARD FOURNETTE. Fournette ran for a career-high 1,152 yards and caught a team-high 76 passes last season,More but he managed to score only three touchdowns for his fantasy owners.

Around the NFL: Leonard Fournette

So it's the time of year when lots of trade rumors involving big names are making the rounds. One reported by Adam Schefter yesterday has the Jaguars shopping Leonard Fournette.
