Leonard Fournette’s Hamstring Flares, 1st Round Bust Falling Fast

We’re only four weeks into the 2018 season, but it looks like the brittle Leonard Fournette is an early candidate for a 2018 Roto for ‘Bust of the Year.’ After missing two games with a hamstring injury (surprise, surprise), Fournette’s hamstring flared up on him again during Week 4’s game against the Jets. Adam Schefter announced on Twitter when he said: “Jaguars’ HC Doug Marrone said he doesn’t know how much time Leonard Fournette will miss with his latest hamstring injury. Was two full games before, and it figures to be at least that this time.” With TJ Yeldon (50% owned) highlighting our “Stash” portion of our weekly waiver wire piece, he should have already been handcuffed — if not, he could still be out there.

We wrote in the preseason that he slimmed down to better condition his body for a three-down workhorse role, and in the preseason, he actually looked primed to dominate. Through about 1.5 total games, Fournette has given his livid fantasy owners just a lowly 13.00 .5 PPR points and two likely losses. We were originally off of the former LSU star, calling him “one of the biggest risks in fantasy football,” before being fooled by his body transformation. As of right now, the best case scenario would be for Marrone to put him on the shelf for a couple of weeks to get healthy and 100-percent for the fantasy stretch run — if you’re not already out of contention with your first round pick giving you nothing.
