#4 Leonard Fournette To The Buccaneers Causes Fantasy Chaos

Posted on

The NFL season kicks off one glorious week from today, but this bizarro offseason isn’t done with us yet. 

Mere hours after Bruce Arians called Ronald Jones a three-down back yesterday, the Buccaneers signed free agent Leonard Fournette to a one-year contract in a move that magnificently trolled the entire fantasy cognoscenti. 

If you have already drafted Fournette with an early pick, you just hit your gutshot straight draw on the river. If you’ve been drafting Ronald Jones, your pocket tens just saw a flop with three over cards. And if you’ve been drafting Ke’Shawn Vaughn late like me, well, the pot odds were good pre-flop. 

I agree with Matthew’s snap take. This is shaping up to be a messy committee. His ADP will most likely settle in rounds 5-7 over the next week, which is too rich for my blood with upside WRs and exciting rookie running backs still on the board in that range. 


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW


Confession: I’m a hardcore Zero RB drafter who could barely stomach discussing Leonard Fournette in that opening paragraph having not drafted him in a single league this year. If you have low testosterone like me and prefer to draft WRs and TEs early, the godfather of Zero RB just released his Top 5 running back targets you can get in the mid- to late-rounds.

INSULT TO INJURY

Poor Rojo. Fournette has already photoshopped himself in a Bucs #27 jersey, which, um, happens to be Jones’ number. That’s going to be an awkward introduction in the locker room.
