  • Leonard Fournette To Be Game-Day Decision

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) has practiced in a limited fashion this week leading up to the game against the Cleveland Browns. Fournette suffered the injury in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany before Tampa Bay went on a Week 11 bye. He will reportedly be a game-day decision. If he's active, he'll be in a timeshare with rookie Rachaad White, who posted his first 100-yard rushing game against Seattle. Both will be solid flex plays, but either is at risk of producing a dud in the shared backfield. If Fournette is out, White is virtually a must-start against the Cleveland defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs through 11 weeks.

  • Bucs To Ride Hot Hand At Running Back

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said the team would ride the hot hand at running back between Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White. Fournette is "pretty sore" with a hip injury he suffered in the Germany game and was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. "We'll see how he (Fournette) progresses, and if he can go, he'll go; if he can't, he won't," said Bowles. White filled in admirably when Fournette exited early in the Germany game against the Seahawks, rushing 22 times for 105 yards. Tampa Bay will ride the hot hand, and White could see the lion's share of the carries from the Bucs backfield after his Week 10 performance. Fantasy managers can start Fournette and White as flex plays until the backfield situation sorts itself out within the next few weeks.

  • Leonard Fournette Dealing With Hip Injury

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) suffered a hip pointer injury in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. The Buccaneers had their bye last week, giving the veteran running back time to heal from the injury. However, head coach Todd Bowles said Fournette is very sore. Bowles added that if the veteran can run at full speed during practice this week, Fournette would play on Sunday. However, if the former LSU star can't play, third-round rookie Rachaad White would get his first career start against the Cleveland Browns. The former Arizona State star had 105 rushing in the Week 10 matchup against the Seahawks, a career-high.

  • Leonard Fournette Likely To Be Ready After Bye

    Despite suffering a hip pointer in the Week 10 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) is likely to be ready to play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 after the team's bye, according to sources. It's good news for Fournette's fantasy managers, but the question will now become, will rookie Rachaad White continue to see more backfield work after out-carrying Lenny 22 to 14 and outrushing him 105 to 57 in the win over Seattle. Despite the injury late in the game, Fournette averaged 4.1 yards per carry and scored on the ground. Even if Fournette doesn't miss any time with his hip pointer, it's clear that White has earned a larger share of the work next to Fournette in this backfield, making Fournette's rest-of-season outlook a bit cloudy.

  • Leonard Fournette Dealing With Hip Pointer

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has a hip pointer and will be evaluated further, head coach Todd Bowles told the media. Fournette operated behind Rachaad White in Week 10 but still managed to produce 58 scrimmage yards and one touchdown. The Buccaneers are heading into their bye week, so Fournette has plenty of time to recover before Tampa Bay takes on the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.

  • Leonard Fournette Doubtful To Return Sunday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Leonard Fournette (hip) is doubtful to return against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. It has been a rough game for the veteran back, who lost his starting job to Rachaad White, threw an interception on a failed trick play, and then exited with his injury. He finished the day with 14 carries, 57 rushing yards, and one touchdown. On a positive note, the Buccaneers are on bye next week, so Fournette has plenty of time to recover.
