Leonard Fournette injury update: What to do with the Jaguars running back in fantasy football lineups

The Jaguars will have their star rookie in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications

The Jacksonville Jaguars will have running back Leonard Fournette in Week 11, as he will be active, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Fournette has been dealing with an ankle injury this month. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and then sat out Friday’s practice before being listed as questionable. He went through pre-game warmups, and all appears to be well.

Fantasy impact: Fournette is coming off a tough performance last week in which he rushed 17 times for 33 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers. This week, he faces a Cleveland Browns defense that is tenth in fewest points allowed per game.

That being said, Fournette is a guy you have to start. There is some risk given the injury, but with sufficient question marks about the passing game, look for the Browns to lean heavily on the rookie running back. T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory lose most value they would have had now that Fournette is playing.
