Leonard Fournette to miss Sunday's finale
30 December 2018
Jaguars declared RB Leonard Fournette, DT Eli Ankou, CB Breon Borders, CB A.J. Bouye, RB Dimitri Flowers, QB Tanner Lee and WR Rashad Greene inactive for Week 17 against the Texans.
He'll miss the finale with foot and ankle injuries, leaving backfield responsibilities to Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon. Fournette entered the year with optimism after shedding weight this offseason but it didn’t take long for injuries to set in as the LSU alum labored through a difficult season. He was among the league’s least efficient runners this year, averaging a meager 3.3 yards per carry. Fournette was also hindered by game script as the Jaguars played from behind most weeks. Despite his injury-ruined sophomore campaign, Fournette’s volume and touchdown upside should keep him in play as a fringe RB1 in fantasy drafts next summer.
