Coming out of LSU two years ago, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was highly respected. When he was drafted, many believed that Fournette was going to bring back the power-style to the NFL. However, through three seasons, Fournette has averaged a poor 3.7 rushing yards per attempt. Simply, Fournette has not been contributing to the Jaguars offense.
The Pro Football Network Offensive Share Metric (OSM) lists Fournette with a 15.54 through three games, which is right in the middle of the pack compared to all running backs. This tells us that he does not contribute much on the field, and the same can be said when it comes to fantasy football.
After reviewing the film, it further strengthens the argument that Fournette does not show much upside for fantasy football. Currently, he averages 13.1 fantasy points per game, 21st best for running backs. His running vision and decision making hurt his fantasy rankings and share percentage. Let’s take a look at the film to see why.
