Bucs' Leonard Fournette entered minicamp overweight but not 'any worse for wear'

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette entered minicamp over his goal weight of 228-230 pounds.

What It Means:

This hasn't been the first time there have been concerns about Fournette's weight during an offseason, but first year head coach Todd Bowles told the media that the veteran back didn't look "any worse for wear". Fournette acknowledged that he was over his goal weight, but has been documenting his progress via social media in the weeks since minicamp and does appear to have slimmed down already. We'll have to wait for training camp to resume before we see if Fournette does reach his goal weight.

It's possible Fournette's size has helped him manage the heavy workload he's earned in the Bucs' offense since joining the team two seasons ago; his 249 touches last season ranked 11th-most in the league. We have him projected for a similar volume of opportunities this season, making him numberFire's fantasy RB12 heading into the 2022 season.
