    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been dealing with the injury for several weeks but should be in uniform in Week 12. He has been one of the more productive running backs in the NFL this season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 2:13pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was somewhat of a surprise no go last week, but that means he will have had two weeks to rest his ailing ankle now. He's an obvious start if he's active, but expectations should be tempered if he's on a snap count.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 6:31am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) will likely have to deal with his lingering ankle injury the rest of the season, and his workload will be limited during the week before games. Fournette said he dealt with throbbing ankle pain in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: He still managed 111 yards on 28 carries in snowy conditions. The Jags don't have any Thursday games left, which would undoubtedly cloud his status. Fournette will be an RB2 option against the Arizona Cardinals next week.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 4:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Leonard Fournette posted 28 rushes for 111 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Fournette reportedly wasn't feeling 100 percent with his ankle during the week, but he certainly looked good against a Top 5 Cleveland rush defense. Whenever he is active, you start him. The Jaguars meet the Cardinals in Arizona in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 8:15am ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is active for Week 11's game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Fournette underwent a pregame evaluation to prove that he was ready to play after only taking part in two limited practice sessions during the week. However, it is uncertain if his snaps will be limited this afternoon, so he should be viewed as a somewhat risky fantasy option.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:41am ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are optimistic that RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) will be able to play in Week 11's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source. He will undergo a pregame evaluation to determine if he will be active.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is listed as questionable on the injury report and was held out of practice Friday, Nov. 17, after only being able to participate in the first two practice sessions of the week on a limited basis. Even if he is active, he could see limited snaps, making him a risky fantasy option. RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon would split carries if Fournette is deactivated, with Ivory worthy of consideration as a flex option and Yeldon as an inexpensive flier in DFS.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 2:47pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns after failing to practice Friday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fournette might be able to play, but he is still not 100 percent. He'll also be up against a surprisingly stout Browns rush defense, a team ranking fourth in the league with just 86.4 yards per game and a league-best 3.1 yards per rush allowed. It might be best to go another way, as he could be limited even if active.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 8:51am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is 'still not right,' regarding his ankle injury, according to a source. Fournette could be limited if he plays in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon appear to be the ones to key in on for fantasy purposes against the Cleveland Browns. Despite their record, they've been pretty good against RBs this year, and they've allowed just 3.28 yards per rush the last five weeks. The game will be played in cold weather, and it may even snow. That would benefit Ivory from a workload perspective. With the brewing speculation that Fournette may not go this week, Ivory is a flex option. Yeldon is a cheap DFS grab.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 8:21am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: He was limited the last two days, and his absence today appears to be a downgrade of his status. The Cleveland Browns are a midrange matchup the last five weeks, but they've allowed just 3.28 yards per rush during the stretch. The cold-weather game was likely going to be a bad draw for him to begin with, and today's absence makes him a desperation play if he goes. T.J. Yeldon would be a sneaky DFS play at the right price if Fournette is out.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 11:52am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Fournette appears to be on track to play in Week 11, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is a weekly starting option when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 2:05pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was able to play in Week 10, but he was bottled up for the most part. He will be facing the NFL's No. 4 ranked rushing defense in Week 11, as the Browns allow just 86.4 yards per game. Still, Fournette is a must-start fantasy option whenever he is active.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 9:05am ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not playing in Week 9 in part because he missed treatment, a workout and the team photo this week, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Fournette probably will be back in the lineup next week, but owners should monitor the situation to make sure nothing else happens. Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will both see increased playing time with Fournette out. Ivory can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues, while Yeldon can be a flex option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:35am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has been declared inactive for Week 9 for violating a team rule.

    Huddle Up: Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will see playing time at running back with Fournette out. Ivory probably will receive most of the carries during the game and could be a low-end No. 2 running back in standard leagues. Yeldon could be a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 7:33pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) said he is a different runner than he was at the start of the year and believes he could be even more productive over the final nine games.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is expected to return after a one-game absence, and he should immediately return to his heavy workload. The rookie has scored in every game he has played, and he is a RB1 against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 11:55am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was removed from the injury report Friday, Nov. 3, and will play in Week 9 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Fournette practiced in full this week and should be as healthy as he's going to be the rest of the season after the Jaguars smartly rested him in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts ahead of their Week 8 bye. Cincinnati has not been an overly favorable matchups for running backs this season, but Fournette's talent and consistently heavy workload make him nearly matchup-proof for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 12:16pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is a matchup proof must-start, even against a Cincinnati Bengals defense that has allowed just two rushing touchdowns to running backs all year. One might want to lower expectations for the rookie, but he is a must start.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 1:19pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been a franchise changer so far in his first professional football season. The LSU standout has amassed over 700 total yards and seven total touchdowns despite missing a game. He's an automatic start no matter who he's playing.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 8:52am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is practicing Wednesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has a tough matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, who have been one of the better teams against opposing RBs the last five weeks. However, he's still a low-end RB1 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 8:45am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is practicing Monday, Oct. 30.

    Huddle Up: He missed Week 8, but his activity today makes him look pretty good for Week 9. A note of caution, though, as the Cincinnati Bengals have been one of the best against the position the last five weeks.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 8:14am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 7 game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fournette will receive two weeks of rest and should be ready to play in Week 9. Chris Ivory will start in Fournette's place and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option this week.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 8:29pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is not expected to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Fournette expected to be sidelined, Chris Ivory becomes a low-end RB2 candidate against the Colts.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 2:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Fournette believes he will be able to play despite not practicing this week but may be a game-time decision. He is a No. 1 fantasy running back when he is playing, but owners should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 8:28am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was out of practice Friday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: It looks very much like he'll be out this week against the Indianapolis Colts. Chris Ivory will take the reins in a good matchup. He'll be a low-end RB2 or flex option.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 6:27pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) said he will 'most definitely' be healthy enough to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7, but he added that it will be up to the coaching staff to decide his status.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is a must-start option if he suits up, but if he ends up missing the game, Chris Ivory would be a viable flex play as the primary replacement.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 11:54am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: If he doesn't practice for a third consecutive day tomorrow then we can really start to worry. If that is the case, Chris Ivory's blip on the fantasy radar becomes much stronger. Inexplicably, he caught nine passes for 74 yards last week and would become a serviceable starter in Week 7 if Fournette can't play.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 8:14pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette joined retired RB Robert Edwards as the only two rookies in NFL history to score a touchdown in each of their team's first six games to begin a season.

    Huddle Up: It's just another notch on the belt of what has been an outstanding first campaign for the first-round pick out of LSU. Fournette has averaged a tick less than 100 rushing yards per game thus far, totaling seven touchdowns in the process. Any owner who took him in the first or second round of drafts has to be thrilled with the early returns.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 9:34am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is not expected to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, according to the team's website.

    Huddle Up: It's still hard to believe Fournette is dealing with a sprained ankle as opposed to a hyperextended knee three days later after it happened, but the rookie himself verified the injury and told reporters he could have went back into the game if necessary in Week 6. For now, it appears Fournette will be fine to use as a RB1 in fantasy against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 5:56am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) is expected to play in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts have been so-so against opposing running backs, and Fournette could be limited. See how the week shakes out, but he should at least be worth a flex play.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 4:16pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was cleared to return in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Fournette's injury looked worse than it was, and for that all fantasy owners are very thankful.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 3:52pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette left the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth due to a right ankle injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Initially it appears he suffered a hyperextended right knee, but the word from the team is an ankle injury. It sounds like he avoided a major injury. He had a 75-yard touchdown and over 100 rushing yards before checking out.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 3:18pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was removed from the Week 6 practice report after practicing in full on Friday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is in line for another huge day as the Rams rank 27th in the NFL against the rush, giving up 133.6 yards per game with seven touchdowns and five plays of over 20 yards on the ground.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 11:45am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been one of the better running backs in the NFL this season and will continue to receive a significant amount of touches during games. He should be considered a No. 1 running back in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 3:18pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has rushed for five touchdowns in five games this season and recorded his second 100-yard game in Week 5. He will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense but can be a low-end No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 1:59pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 28 times for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 5 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he added one catch for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Fournette's day was already going to be good, but he made it amazing with a 90-yard touchdown gallop in the fourth quarter to seal the victory with an exclamation point. He should have another huge day in Week 6 when the Los Angeles Rams and their leaky rush defense come to town.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 9:07pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's touches are 'not an exact science,' according to head coach Doug Marrone, but he said they will continue to work on figuring it out.

    Huddle Up: Fournette did not touch the ball on the last possession against the New York Jets in Week4, but he still had 28 touches for the game. He has received at least 16 touches in all four games this year, delivering at least 80 total yards in three of them. He has been the workhorse he was drafted to be, and he is a volume-based RB1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 1:30pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been a bright spot for the Jaguars and has rushed for one touchdown in three of the four games this season. He will have a favorable matchup this week and should be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 4:11pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was limited on Wednesday, but this should leave no doubt that he'll be out there for the team's Week 5 affair in Pittsburgh. It might sound imposing but there could be a good amount of scoring going on, which figures to bode well for the rookie's fantasy prospects this Sunday. Considering he's scored in every game thus far, owners should just continue to fire up Fournette without any hesitation.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 8:29pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette became the first player in franchise history to record a touchdown from scrimmage in each of the team's first four games to begin a season with his rushing score in Week 4 Sunday, Oct. 1, against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Other than a slightly suspect 3.5 yards per carry, Fournette has been an absolute delight for his fantasy owners in his first NFL season, accumulating 285 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns, to go with 125 yards through the air on 12 catches, as well as one receiving touchdown. While Jacksonville's quarterback play has been inconsistent, Fournette has been finding ways to churn out useful performances on a weekly basis.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 4:17pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should be fine for the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and will receive a significant amount of carries. The Steelers have struggled against the run at times this season, which makes Fournette a solid No. 2 running back for owners.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 2:15pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 86 yards on 24 carries against the New York Jets in Week 4. He also caught four passes for 59 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Fournette had a big role in the running and passing game this week and will continue to receive a significant amount of touches every game. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues next week.

  • Posted: 9/30/2017 8:51pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has gained positive yards on 51 of his 57 carries this season, and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said not having 'negative-yard runs' is big for the offense.

    Huddle Up: Fournette's longest run this year is 17 yards, but he has seen at least 16 touches in every game and has scored in every game. He is worthy of RB1 status heading into a Week 4 matchup with the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 9:35am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 59 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 21 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has recorded a rushing touchdown in each of the first three games this season and will continue to be a big factor in the team's offense. He will have a favorable matchup next week against the New York Jets and should be at least a No. 2 running back for owners.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 5:28pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette rushed 14 times for 40 yard and a touchdown in Week 2 against Tennessee. He also added two receptions for 21 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been impressive so far during the early going, giving Jacksonville fans something to cheer about win or lose. He looks to be a good one, although he could have a rough day against a top-notch Ravens defense in Week 3 in London.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 7:15am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette had 61 yards rushing after contact in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: He's coming off a 26-100-1 rushing line with three catches for 24 yards. He's a high-end RB2 against Tennessee this week, but there are some concerns. The team lost its best receiver Allen Robinson (knee), and the passing game is suspect. If 60 percent of his yards came after contact, that means there aren't holes for him to run through or he didn't recognize them quick enough. Having a 100-yard debut is great, but read between the lines as he may be a sell-high chip.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 6:09pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette carried 26 times for 100 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 24 yards in a 29-7 win over the Houston Texans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Fournette delivered in his first NFL game, and the fact that he carried the ball 26 times leaves no doubt that he is the workhorse in the backfield. He should be no worse than a high-end RB2 against Tennessee in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 9:47am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette might not start Week 1's game against the Houston Texans, although he is expected to see a great deal of playing time.

    Huddle Up: Fournette missed three preseason games due to a foot problem but was not listed on the injury report this week. He should be viewed as a solid RB2 in all formats for now, especially with T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) sidelined, but he could elevate himself to RB1 territory by season's end.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 3:19pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) was not listed on the team's injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The rookie is expected to shoulder a heavy workload in Sunday's regular season debut against the Texans, especially if T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is limited or unable to play. The rookie out of LSU missed three games in the preseason due to a foot injury. For now, treat him as an RB2, although if he stays healthy he very well could emerge as an RB1 by season's end.

  • Posted: 8/28/2017 12:46pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) has been practicing more lately and will be ready for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a sigh of relief for the Jaguars and Fournette owners, but he wasn't expected to miss a lot of time. As long as his foot and the rest of his body hold up, he has a solid chance to be the top rookie running back in the NFL this year and finish as an RB1.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 12:58pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Fournette appears to be on track for the start of the season as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He will receive most of the work at running back this season and can be considered a No. 2 running back in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 8/21/2017 4:09pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) has been ruled out for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24, and is considered unlikely to play in the final preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Fournette likely will be ready to play when the regular season begins and will receive most of the carries this season. He has a chance to receive a lot of touches because of the team's quarterback situation, which makes him a solid No. 2 running back in standard leagues.
