Fantasy Analysis
Week 8 Projections
After spending three weeks parked on the injury shelf due to a bum ankle, Fournette returned against the Las Vegas Raiders last week, supplanting LeSean McCoy as the Bucs' third-down/change-of-pace specialist and forcing Ronald Jones into a hot-hand timeshare arrangement. In the Raiders game, Fournette carried 11 times for 50 yards and caught six passes for 47 yards on seven targets. His usage in the passing game will give Fournette a safer fantasy floor and lower Jones' fantasy floor at the same time. Consider Fournette a fantasy RB3 play versus a New York Giants defense that has yielded the 10th-most running back fantasy points.
Rushing: 50 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 22 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Fournette has signed a one-year deal with Tampa Bay after being unceremoniously cut by the Jaguars. This ultimately, could be a positive as we expect there to be more touchdown opportunities in Tampa than in Jacksonville but he'll certainly be run less in offense rich Tampa Bay which will count against his fantasy production. In touchdown only leagues, Fournette makes for a very interesting draft pick indeed, others may want to wait a little, we see Fournette in that group of RB's that could be good but carry more than their fair share of question marks.

Rushing: 307 Yards, 2 TD.
Receiving: 23 Receptions, 172 Yards, 1 TD.
