Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
After sitting out the last two weeks, Fournette (ankle) was tentatively expected to return and resume his role in the Buccaneers' hot-hand timeshare backfield with Ronald Jones. During Fournette's last game action (Week 3), he amassed 22 combo yards on nine touches while Jones logged 73 total yards on 15 touches. The Green Bay Packers defense has yielded the ninth-fewest rushing yards to opposing tailbacks. Green Bay, however, also has coughed up the 10th-most catches and the sixth-most receiving yards to the position. The Packers' weakness against running backs in the passing game is why they've surrendered the second-most fantasy points to ball carriers. Fournette could have a solid outing if he receives enough touches, but he's also a risk for a dud performance. Consider Fournette a boom-or-bust flex option.

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: 240 Yards, 2 TD.
Receiving: 17 Receptions, 123 Yards, 1 TD.
