2018 Fantasy Outlook
Nagging lower-body injuries cost Fournette three games his rookie season and caused him to look less than 100 percent healthy in a few more, but the Jaguars otherwise had few complaints about the No. 4 overall pick. At 6-0, 228, Fournette runs with purpose if not outright menace, using his ferocious burst to attack holes and tacklers head on, and he finished 10th among running backs in evaded tackles. He's more than just a power back, though, showing respectable hands as a receiver and improving instincts as a pass protector, along with nimble feet that can leave defenders looking foolish on the rare occasions he decides to avoid contact rather than plowing through it. The Jaguars gave Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon some run last season to keep Fournette fresh, but the rookie still saw plenty of carries as the offense evolved into a clock-chewing complement to the team's elite defense. His history of injuries dating back to college is a concern, and even with Ivory out of the picture, Fournette's workload may not increase much with Corey Grant set to take on a larger role in the backfield. Fournette's work at the goal line - he tied for 10th in the league with nine carries inside the 5-yard line - should ensure he remains productive, and the signing of G Andrew Norwell stabilizes the offensive line.

Considered day-to-day

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that he considers both Fournette (hamstring) and T.J. Yeldon (ankle) to be day-to-day, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fournette seemed to be on track to play in Sunday's 9-6 loss to Tennessee after logging limited practices all last week, but he ultimately was held out in a game-time decision. Yeldon got the start and piled up 90 scrimmage yards on 13 touches while playing through his own injury, with Corey Grant chipping in just 10 yards on seven touches. The Jacksonville backfield will once again require close monitoring ahead of a Week 4 game against the Jets.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Ankle injuries limited Fournette to seven games in his final season at LSU but didn't cost him on draft day, as the Jaguars pounced on him with the fourth overall pick to be their new lead running back. At 6-1, 235, he's a dominant physical runner who terrorized college defenses with his combination of speed and burst, not to mention the willingness, even the desire, to run over and through would-be tacklers. Fournette does have a little finesse to his game, showing good balance in traffic and some receiving skill, but his angry, downhill style is best suited for a running game designed to wear down the opposition over four quarters. Such a scheme would be a departure for a Jacksonville offense that previously was built around Blake Bortles, but head coach Doug Marrone and new executive VP Tom Coughlin both prefer an old-school, smash-mouth style, so such a change wouldn't be surprising. If there's one concern with Fournette it's his ability to hold up under the punishment his running style exacts over a 16-game NFL schedule, but he'll head into camp fully recovered from last year's ankle woes. Even with T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory still on the roster to share the carries, Fournette is expected to see a heavy workload right away to justify his draft slot, and he could emerge as the league's next true bell cow.
