Will Leonard Fournette play Sunday night?

Despite missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Fournette (ankle) participated in a full session on Friday. Bucs coach Bruce Arians later said Fournette will play Sunday night against the saints.

Given Arians’ confidence in Fournette’s availability, fantasy owners likely have little to worry about. That said, setbacks are always possible, so having Ronald Jones II handcuffed on your list makes sense. It’s a tough matchup for both Fournette and Jones as the Saints have been a top-level defense all year, but given Fournette’s use in the passing game and his TD potential in Tampa’s mighty offense, it’s a must start in all matches.

Jones wouldn’t be that attractive, but it would take a lot of touches and have a similar TD upside, so at least it’s a flex.
