Which RB to start if Fournette is out?

Full PPR League

My RB – Nick Chubb, Leonard Fournette (ankle), Damien Harris (hamstring), D’Ernest Johnson (uptick with Kareem Hunt out), Ronald Jones II (Founette handcuff).

Which RB should I start if Fournette is out? Jones? Harris?

Which RB should I start if Fournette suits up but is highly questionable? Fournette? Jones? Harris?

Jones, if Fournette is out.
Harris, if Fournette is active.

Gotta disagree, Zak. I agree with Jones if Fournette is out, but if Lenny is healthy, have you seen his last 5 weeks? Money in the bank. He puts Harris to shame: 17-14-44-22-23. I’ll take those stats from a starter anytime.

Admittedly, New Orleans is brutal against the run, and did well against TB the last time they played. That was also Jameis Winston’s last game. Expect a different game script this time. If TB ends up leading late, could we see “Leisure Suit Lenny” groundpounding the Saints? Don’t be surprised.


If he is fully healthy and gets a full workload - no argument.

But remember Darrell Henderson in week 13. He was questionable, then cleared and active for the game, but ended up without a single snap.

Anyway - Fournette has just now been cleared for Sunday, and apparently logged a full practice today, so it seems the risk is lower. The upside is certainly there.

Edit: Harris has just been ruled out, which makes the decision even easier. :sweat_smile:
