Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette expects to have a role in 2019 passing game

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette expects to have an opportunity to catch passes in 2019 according to quarterback Nick Foles.

What It Means:

"That’s a threat. If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense," said Foles to the media.

On 74 targets in Fournette's career, the Jaguars' back has produced 58 receptions for 487 yards and two touchdowns. If he can stay healthy, look for Fournette to produce workhorse or RB1 fantasy numbers.
