Not long term they aren't.  He is a definitely sell in dynasty leagues.  His future is very unknown and along with his injury history it magnifies that.

I'm buying all day at his current price and if I own him I'm holding. Especially if you're a contender. He could easily lead the league in rushing and his measily 3 TDs can only go up. If he scored like 3-4 more times last year he would have been RB6 or something. People's perception of his value is way off.

Just a gut feeling that he goes somewhere that kills his value and somebody else's.

Chicago is my guess.  They have nobody of note behind Montgomery, who is hurt already.  Or, he can do what Davonta Freeman seems to be doing and just wait for a RB to go down somewhere.

Very unpopular opinion, but this is an example of why I believe that all add drops should be done via waivers or bidding.  The scramble to the phone when news breaks should not ultimately determine your league.  I am prepared for all of snarky rejoinders, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am right.

Perhaps no one wants him.  He does bring some baggage doesn't he?   Everything I read all summer said to get rid of this guy........and I did.  

 

Among 36 RBs with 40+ targets for the season, Fournette ranked 27th in yards per catch, 30th in yards per target, 25th in yards per route run. Despite a career-best 4.3 yards per rush, Football Outsiders rated Fournette just 34th among 45 qualifying RBs in both main rushing-efficiency metrics -- below average/replacement-level performance in each category. Pro Football Focus similarly graded Fournette just 41st in rushing among the 45 RBs with 100+ attempts in 2019.

Over his 3 seasons in the league, Fournette has touched the ball a lot when healthy. He ranks 4th in that span in carries per game and 3rd in touches per game. But among the top 100 RBs in total carries since the start of 2017, Fournette ranks just 66th in non-PPR points per touch and 63rd in PPR points per touch.

In short, he has feasted totally on touch volume.

Not unpopular with me. My leagues have been all blind bidding only for 10+ years and everyone loves it

All my leagues are this way. Not sure why you think most people are against this?

Bears are 19th in waiver order, pretty sure he will get claimed before that.

That’s a very common opinion

Tampa seems like the logical choice to me. Yeah, I'm sure Washington would be interested, but I doubt he would want to go there.

Almost wonder if there is more to this. Seems like an odd move. I really struggle to believe they couldn't trade him for something.

Let's see where he lands first. Probably a 2 down thumper/GL back now or he's going to jail. Lol

Looks like it. But Minshew might not get the memo, ala Fitzpatrick in Miami. However, I can't think of a another team that should be as bad as the Bengals were last year.

I'm sure Minshew will be fine but he has an average supporting cast and their defense is the worst in the league.

No comp picks when players are released. 

Yeah, that's why I don't understand this decision. Why free up cap for this season when FA is over and you're tanking anyway. By declining his 5th year, they could have just let him walk and get comp picks. This felt more like a personal decision than a business one.

You can roll over unused cap space to the following year, but this wasn’t a cap-based decision. This was all about them not wanting him around anymore.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says Leonard Fournette's release is all about what he's seen on field during camp -- not locker room issues. He feels like group of backs behind Fournette can give team better chance to win. Doing it now gives them chance to get rotation figured out.
