Is Leonard Fournette worth the gamble?


#1

PPR: Have an offer to give up Brandin Cooks for Leonard Fournette.

I have DeAndre Hopkins and Davante Adams, with Josh Gordon and Tyrell Williams. Running backs are Mark Ingram, Kerryon Johnson, Alex Collins, James Connor, and Chris Carson so I think I definitely could significantly improve my RBs as opposed to my WRs, just not sure it’s worth the gamble.

It’s very risky. We don’t know how the Hyde, Yeldon and Fournette share will work out. If you give up very little than yes, go for it but don’t give up a big contributor. Especially being a PPR league.

I wouldn’t do it. He likely won’t come back until after their bye, and then you have six or so weeks of someone in a committee. He may get reinjured, he may only get 8-10 carries with Hyde and Yeldon, etc. I wouldn’t trade away a WR2 for someone who may not see the field again, let alone be the workhorse.

Not for me. You could probably get a better RB for Cooks or a Cooks package. You’d certainly get a known quantity.

Fwiw, I got Fournette off waivers this week. He and Cook are being dropped all over
