The rookie rampage at running back has arrived.
After one week of preseason games,. They've slowly begun to make headway up the tiers.
Then news broke about a nagging foot injury that will cost him reps in practice, not to mention playing time in their second preseason game. It's something worth monitoring but nothing worth freaking out about. His potential is just too rich, and frankly the running back talent pool has taken some hits this week, notably withcausing him to drop down the tiers. Fournette still has lots of appeal.
