    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette finished the playoffs with four rushing touchdowns, which is tied for the most by a rookie in postseason history. Retired RBs Norm Standlee (1941), Tony Dorsett (1977), William Floyd (1994) and Jamal Lewis (2000) are the others to have accomplished this feat.

    Huddle Up: Fournette missed three games during his rookie campaign but still managed to hit the 1,000-yard plateau, scoring nine touchdowns in the process. There's no question Fournette will be a consensus first-round pick in fantasy drafts next season, but owners just need to be weary of his potentially troublesome ankle. His ceiling is as high as anyone's if he can stay healthy for all 16 regular season games.

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 24 times for 76 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added two grabs for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was instrumental in Jacksonville's turnaround from doormat to contender this season, as the rookie posted 1,040 rushing yards, nine touchdowns on the ground and one receiving score during the regular season. He'll be a fantasy mainstay for many years to come.

  • Posted: 1/19/2018 1:22pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) were limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.

  • Posted: 1/18/2018 1:42pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should be ready to play in the AFC Championship game as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is one of the better running backs in the NFL and should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 1/18/2018 8:33am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is expected to practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off a 25-109-3 game, and the New England Patriots could bend for yardage. They allowed the second-fewest rushing scores to RBs, though, with five all season. Fournette is an RB1 option and arguably the best back left in the playoffs.

  • Posted: 1/17/2018 1:45pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: In order to upset the New England Patriots the Jags will have to keep Tom Brady and company on the sideline. Fournette will be a major factor in Jacksonville's game plan and is comfortably in RB1 territory for next season.

  • Posted: 1/17/2018 7:27am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is expected to practice Wednesday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off of a 25-109-3 beast of a game in the divisional game. The New England Patriots allowed the second-fewest rushing scores this year with five. They're a bend-but-don't-break defense, so there could be yards to pick up. Fournette continues to be an RB1 in playoff formats.

  • Posted: 1/14/2018 3:14pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 25 times for 109 yards and three touchdowns in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 14, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he added two catches for 10 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been a huge addition to the Jacksonville offense. Between the regular season and playoffs, Fournette topped the century mark six times on the ground. Next week he'll face a Patriots rush defense which allowed 114.8 yards per game, 20th in the NFL.

  • Posted: 1/14/2018 12:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) has returned to the Divisional Round playoff game after missing some time because of an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has dealt with ankle injuries during the second half of the season but should be fine moving forward. He is a No. 1 fantasy running back when he plays.

  • Posted: 1/14/2018 11:25am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Divisional Round playoff game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was playing well during the playoff game, so owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be able to return. He is a No. 1 fantasy running back when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 1/8/2018 2:33pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette ran all over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5 of the regular season, amassing 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. The Jaguars face the Steelers in the divisional round of the playoffs this weekend.

    Huddle Up: Fournette will undoubtedly be the focus of the Pittsburgh defense, especially since Blake Bortles played so poorly in the wild-card round of the playoffs. As for next season, Fournette deserves to be drafted in the late-first to early-second round.

  • Posted: 1/7/2018 1:21pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 57 yards on 21 carries against the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 7. He also caught three passes for 21 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been held to under 70 yards rushing in each of his last three games but will continue to be a big part of the offense next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He should be considered a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/4/2018 8:25pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette 'wants the ball' against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Jan. 7, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

    Huddle Up: Fournette topped 1,000 yards as a rookie despite battling some injuries, and he draws a juicy matchup in the playoff opener. Buffalo ranked 29th in rushing yards allowed this year and allowed an NFL-high 22 rushing scores. Fournette looks like a strong DFS play this weekend.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:10pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 18 times for 48 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added three receptions for 22 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Fournette appears to be over his quadriceps injury after one week off. He has scored a touchdown in each of the past three games, too, as he ends his first regular season on a high note.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 12:43pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should receive his normal workload after being a full participant during practice this week. He can be a No. 1 fantasy running back for owners in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 2:13pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is on track to play after sitting out Week 15 because of the injury. He should be a big part of the team's offense this week and is a must-start option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 10:27am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quad) practiced Wednesday, Dec. 20, and will play in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been a bit of a hit-or-miss proposition since his spectacular six-week run to begin the season. This week, he'll face a 49ers defense that was laughable against the run early but hasn't allowed an individual rusher to finish with more than 70 yards since Week 9, although none of them were at the level of the No. 4 overall pick. Fournette should have enough volume this week to be a RB1, but his matchup may not be as easy as it once appeared it was going to be.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 8:09am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) will practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was held out in Week 15, but he appears on track to face the San Francisco 49ers this week. The Niners are the worst matchup in the league as they have allowed just 8.9 points per game to opposing running backs the last five weeks. They've held opposing rushers to 3.06 yards per carry and no touchdowns in that span. Fournette's typically heavy usage would still qualify him as a midrange RB2.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: He has missed a whole week of practice and still played, and he has already said he expects to face the Houston Texans. Until something comes out that foils that, he's a low-end RB1 or a high-end RB2.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 6:57pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) said his quadriceps injury shouldn't prevent him from playing against the Houston Texans in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Fournette ran for 100 yards and a score the first time he faced Houston. As long as takes the field, he should be a low-end RB1 in the rematch.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 9:44am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: It's not time to panic, yet. The team holds him out frequently during the week, and he's ready to roll for the game. The Houston Texans are a midrange matchup, and Fournette is a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 3:58pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a quadriceps injury.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should be good to go for Week 15, but circle back around Friday for the official injury report. He rolled for 26 carries, 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Texans, and that was against a healthy Houston defense with J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, etc. He remains a must-start fantasy option whenever active.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 5:23am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 24 times for 101 yards and a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Dec. 10. He also had four catches for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has at least 20 carries in four of the last five games, and he's playing like an RB1 right now. He'll have a midrange matchup against the Houston Texans next week.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 3:57pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Fournette will be looking to rebound after two disappointing outings and should receive plenty of touches against the Seattle Seahawks. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back this week.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 3:19pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Fournette has been held to less than 60 yards in three of the last four games but should still receive plenty of carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 2:43pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: It's been a tale of two halves for Fournette in his first professional campaign. After scoring six times in his first six games, he has only found the end zone once in his last four games, not to mention he has only averaged 56.5 rushing yards in those four outings. Still, he has to be started as long as he's playing because of his upside, although expectations should be tempered.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 7:21pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette ran 20 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three catches for 22 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Fournette admitted a couple of weeks ago that his ankle is still sore, but he is fighting through the pain and able to play. At least he was able to find the end zone for the first time in four weeks. Whenever he is active he remains a must-start fantasy option, even if he has averaged 2.9 yards per carry or less in three of his past four outings.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 3:18pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should receive a lot of carries against the Indianapolis Colts this week and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 1:52pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off a disappointing Week 12 game and has been held to under 35 yards in two of the last three games. He is still a big part of the Jaguars' offense and should be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 1:38pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was able to fully participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: The rookie has been able to play lately, but he admitted recently that his ankle has been bothering him and he isn't at 100 percent. He is an obvious fantasy play whenever healthy, but lately he has looked more like an RB2 than a must-start RB1.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 8:46pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for just 25 yards in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals while adding three grabs for 17 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Fournette complained a couple of weeks ago that his ankle is still bothering him and he certainly looked hampered by something and not comfortable in this one. As long as he is active you have to start him in fantasy leagues, but he has been a little inconsistent over his past three outings.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 11:27am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is absent from the team's Week 12 injury report despite practicing in limited fashion all week.

    Huddle Up: Since carrying fantasy owners for the first six weeks of the season, Fournette hasn't been nearly as dominant since. Some of that can be attributed to circumstance - he missed one game due to injury, another due to a one-game suspension and had a bye week mixed in there as well - but some of it can also be blamed on the ankle injury he said last week could bother him the rest of the season. Nevertheless, due to workload and talent, he remains a RB1 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 12:32pm ET

    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.
