Leonard Fournette released by the Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are moving on from their thought-to-be franchise running back

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Training Camp Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Leonard Fournette.

Fantasy Impact

WOAH! I know there were rumors the Jaguars were thinking about trading Fournette, but outright releasing him without a clear number one option behind him does come as a shock. I don’t think Fournette will be a free agent for long, especially with teams like the Bears dealing with running back injuries. Meanwhile in Jacksonville, buy Chris Thompson and Ryquell Armstead as they’re suddenly about to get a TON of work.
