Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ronald Jones II
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette rushed 13 times for 45 yards and caught seven of eight targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Another big receiving day for the former first-round pick, as he's now caught at least six passes in four straight games. Buccaneers QB Tom Brady connected with Fournette for a three-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Fournette has been productive for fantasy managers, rushing for 65 yards and seven touchdowns while catching 58 passes for 402 yards and two scores over 12 games in 2021. The 26-year-old will look to find the end zone for a third straight game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette was impressive in the Week 12 win over the Indianapolis Colts, rushing 17 times for 100 yards and three touchdowns while hauling in seven of eight targets for 31 yards with another score. Last Sunday, the 26-year-old scored four touchdowns and will build on that impressive performance against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. The Falcons allow 125 yards a game on the ground and rank 29th in DVOA against the run. Fournette is a top-five option against Atlanta and a must-start for fantasy managers in Week 13.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette faces an Indianapolis Colts defense that ranks 20th in rush DVOA. He will look to turn things around after failing to find the end zone and rushing for under 50 yards in three straight games. The 26-year-old has been involved in the passing game, catching 17 passes for 101 yards during that three-game span. Fournette should lead Tampa Bay's backfield against the Colts and is mid-range RB2 in a projected high-scoring affair (51.5 over/under) in Week 12.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 11 times for 47 yards and added eight receptions for 45 yards in the team's 29-19 loss to the Washing Football Team in Week 10. Fournette was targeted nine times as his role in the receiving game continues to surprise. The veteran runner now has 38 receptions on the season and has posted at least 90 all-purpose yards in five games this season. The Buccaneers offense will try and get back on track next Monday night against the Giants.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette faces another tricky matchup in Week 10 against the Washington Football Team. Fournette was held under 50 scrimmage yards for the first time since September in a tough matchup before the bye against the Saints. While not quite the run-stuffing unit New Orleans is, Washington is still a stout defense against the ground game, ranking 10th in rush DVOA. Fortunately, Fournette is still dominating the backfield work, plus Tampa Bay could be playing with a lead, which could mean more work than usual for the halfbacks. Consider him a volume-based RB2 this week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette was held in check by the Saints' defense in Sunday's loss. Fournette mustered just 26 rushing yards on eight attempts while hauling in three receptions for 17 receiving yards, though his final line would have looked better had he reeled in a pass close to the goal-line during one trip into the red zone. The 26-year-old remained the clear lead back in terms of touches, an encouraging sign as his team heads into the bye week. Fournette will get a favorable Week 10 draw against a Washington team that has been shaky against opposing running backs.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will face a tough test in Week 8 against a stout Saints run defense. Fournette has been a weekly RB2 lately, as he's averaged 21 touches per game while exceeding 100 scrimmage yards in three of those contests. The star halfback is undoubtedly the team's best runner, but takes on a Saints defense that has yielded the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing halfbacks. Fournette has been good enough to excel in any matchup, though it might be best to temper expectations a bit against New Orleans.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette finished with 15 carries for 81 yards and a score along with two receptions for nine yards on four targets in Sunday's win over the Bears. The back now has a rushing touchdown in the last three games and at least 81 rushing yards in three of the past four games. It's clear now that Fournette is the RB1 on Tampa, so there will certainly be plenty of opportunities for him to produce going forward.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette is an RB1 against Chicago this week. Fournette has emerged as the clear RB1 for Tampa over Ronald Jones II. Lately, he has been on a tear. The RB has at least 67 rushing yards in the last three games, including one contest with 92 yards. He also has at least five targets and 43 receiving yards in the last three contests as well. The Bears are about average against fantasy backs, so Fournette is a great start.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 22 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns, adding six receptions for 46 receiving yards in Thursday's 28-22 win over Philadelphia. Fournette struggled to find running room at times but was the goal-line finisher on two of Tampa Bay's scoring drives, as well as a dependable target for Tom Brady in the passing game. The LSU product handled a season-high 28 touches, giving him an average of 22.3 over the last three weeks, as he has fully seized control of the Tampa Bay backfield. He should be looked at as a strong play every week moving forward, even with a tough Week 7 matchup against the Bears coming up.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette gets a favorable matchup against the Eagles in Week 6. Fournette has fully taken the reins to Tampa Bay's backfield, handling 25 and 17 touches in the last two weeks while exceeding the 100-yard scrimmage mark in each game. As seven-point road favorites with quarterback Tom Brady (thumb) slightly banged up, the Buccaneers could opt to lean on the running game more in Week 6. That would bode well for Fournette's fantasy outlook against an Eagles defense that has allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to running backs this year. Start him as a strong RB2 Thursday night.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette finished with 12 carries for 67 yards and a score along with four receptions for 43 yards on five targets in Sunday's win over Miami. Fournette has been on a tear the last two weeks and has been a factor in the rushing and passing game. The back now has at least 67 rushing yards and 43 receiving yards in the past two games and is clearly the better fantasy back between him and Ronald Jones II. With a solid role and decent production, Fournette is a solid fantasy starter going forward.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette is a high RB2 against Miami. Fournette posted his best numbers of the season last week against the Patriots, 20 carries for 92 yards and three receptions for 47 yards on five targets. The 26-year-old has seemingly emerged as the RB1 of the team over Ronald Jones II and that showed last week in his number of carries. The Dolphins allow the fourth-most points to fantasy backs, so Fournette is in a good spot to produce.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 20 times for 91 rushing yards, adding three receptions for 47 receiving yards in Sunday's win over New England. Fournette dominated the backfield touches, tallying 23 to Ronald Jones II's six- though it was Jones who found the end zone. Still, the 26-year-old Fournette has been the back to roster based on playing time and bankable volume, as he was on the field for 81 percent of the snaps, the highest snap count percentage for a Tampa Bay running back since Bruce Arians took over as head coach. He'll be a solid RB2 play next week against the Dolphins. Miami's defense just surrendered 103 rushing yards and a score to Jonathan Taylor.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette draws a favorable matchup in Week 4 against the Patriots. Aside from the Week 3 anomaly, Fournette has been the team's lead back, playing an average of 50 percent of the snaps while exceeding 14 touches in two of three games. The former fourth overall pick will face a New England defense that has allowed 122.7 rushing yards per game, 24th in the NFL through three weeks. The Buccaneers have been a pass-heavy offense so far this year, though as seven-point road favorites, they could jump out to a lead on the Patriots- and rely on the run game. Fournette is a flex option that could deliver RB2 production in Week 4.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette managed four carries for eight yards and three receptions for 26 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Fournette posted his worst performance of 2021 on Sunday but he's still managed to outshine Ronald Jones II, which will play a huge part in the size of his role going forward. At this point, it seems Fournette is the better fantasy option as well considering he has posted better numbers than Jones. Given that he's due for some weaker performances sometimes, Fournette should remain in the flex tier at best going forward.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will get the starting nod in the team's backfield against the Rams Sunday. Head coach Bruce Arians had named Ronald Jones II the starter ahead of last week's contest, though Jones has disappointed in game action, fumbling in Week 1 and running out of bounds before the first down marker in Week 2. Fournette, who has led the backfield in snaps and touches through two weeks, should be expected to lead the way against a tough Rams front, though this backfield could do a complete 180 at any given moment. Still, in a potentially high-scoring affair, Fournette has flex appeal.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette is an RB3 option in Week 3. Fournette is starting to stand out as the top back for the Bucs over Ronald Jones II. He now has 20 carries for 84 yards and nine receptions for 51 yards on 11 targets in two games. In terms of rushing stats, Fournette has double the numbers of carries and yards compared to Jones (10 carries for 41 yards). As a result, he is the better fantasy option from this backfield at this point and is a good play against a Rams team that's mediocre against fantasy backs.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 11 times for 52 rushing yards, adding four receptions for 24 receiving yards in a 48-25 blowout win over Atlanta. Fournette's 4.7 yards per carry average suggests he had no trouble finding running room against Atlanta, though fantasy managers would have hoped for more with such a positive game script on hand. Even so, it's encouraging that the LSU product seems to have the trust of the coaching staff after his strong postseason, as he's had solid volume in both the rushing and passing games through two weeks of play. However, a tough test against the Rams awaits in Week 3.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will take on the Falcons in Week 2 after operating as the team's lead back in Week 1. Fournette handled 14 touches, including a whopping seven targets, turning them into 59 scrimmage yards while playing 65 percent of the offensive snaps. Even with head coach Bruce Arians expressing confidence in Ronald Jones II after his Week 1 fumble, Fournette is still the safer bet to lead the team in touches against Atlanta. With a positive game script likely on tap, fantasy managers can turn to Fournette as a flex option in Week 2. It's also worth noting that Atlanta allowed two rushing scores to Fournette last year.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette finished Thursday's win over Dallas with nine carries for 32 yards and five receptions for 27 yards on seven targets. While not the flashiest numbers, Fournette did receive double the carries of fellow backfield mate Ronald Jones II and also chipped in for the passing game. While it is quite early to tell whether Fournette will be the lead back for this offense, Thursday's performance was encouraging as Jones only managed four rushes for 14 rushing yards. Managers will likely need to take a wait-and-see approach going forward to see if Fournette can develop consistency and distinguish himself as the lead back. The RB will look to build on his performance next week against Atlanta.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette should be considered a flex option for Thursday's matchup against the Cowboys. Fournette didn't post splendid numbers during the regular season last year (367 rush yards, six rush touchdowns, 36 receptions, 233 yards), but thrived during the postseason which earned him the nickname "Playoff Lenny." Entering 2021 though, Playoff Lenny will once again compete with Ronald Jones II for touches and it seems like a committee approach unless one guy proves he should be the workhorse back at one point in the season. Though the Cowboys allowed the 10th-most points to fantasy backs last season, the likely timeshare between Jones and Fournette only keeps the latter in the flex tier in Week 1.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running backs Ronald Jones II and Leonard Fournette are still battling for the label of RB1, according to run game coordinator Harold Goodwin. He noted that the two remain fairly even, so the next two weeks before their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys will be crucial. "Saturday night will tell a lot," Goodwin said. Tampa Bay's final preseason game against the Houston Texans will potentially serve as the most important opportunity for the two backs to make their case for the starting job. Giovani Bernard figures to have a sizeable role on third down because of his pass-catching ability, so this might be a backfield that fantasy managers should avoid entirely. Unless Jones or Fournette misses some time, their likely scenario of splitting carries results in both of them being no more than a flex option.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has been placed below fellow back Ronald Jones II on the team's first depth chart that was released on Wednesday. This was the same situation as last year where Jones was given the starting role but it doesn't mean Fournette won't have a decent-sized role for himself in 2021. In fact, it's expected both backs will get their fair share of carries during the campaign, which again muddles their fantasy values. For now, both backs should be considered in the RB3 tier, at least until some point in the season when it could become evident that one is a better fantasy option than the other.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette wasn't the most impressive fantasy player in 2020, posting 97 rushes for 367 yards and six touchdowns along with 36 receptions for 233 yards on 47 targets in 13 games. While he did lose a lot of playing time to Ronald Jones II, the former Jaguar showed out in the Bucs' four-game postseason run en route to winning the Super Bowl. He finished with an incredible 64 rushes for 300 yards and three scores along with 18 receptions for 148 yards and a score on 21 targets. While Fournette has earned the right to more carries in 2021 after his playoff performances, expect more of a committee approach once again with Jones, which ultimately caps his fantasy potential.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?
Yes! As you can see from this Julio Jones write up from his player page, we updated his news section as soon as the news broke.
“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
