7. Non-PPR Alert: Leonard Fournette, RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Unless you’re in a PPR league, we wouldn’t even consider Fournette this week against the Bengals. The veteran RB is currently being out touched by rookie Rachaad White since returning from injury in Week 13. He has faced some good defensive lines too in New Orleans and San Francisco to be fair. He’s got another one in Cincinnati though, who just held Nick Chubb of the Browns to 34 yards rushing. Considering what the game script could be in this game–Joe Burrow posting a multiple possession lead–the Bucs could be chasing throughout this game. With the Bucs not being in rhythm all season, they’ll probably have to abandon the run early and try to claw their way back in the short passing game. At that point, Fournette is more valuable as an extra blocker than he is a pass catcher. Even then, Fournette’s not going to get the volume outside of a TE2 would get in this offense.
