Leonard Fournette (Buffalo Bills)

The Buffalo Bills signed Leonard Fournette a few weeks ago to their practice squad but the former first round pick has yet to be elevated to the active roster. That once again was the case for Week 11 against the New York Jets and at this point he may have been forgotten, or even dropped by managers who added him shortly after the signing.

However, the Bills are searching for an identity and fix to their offense so it seems like only a matter of time before Fournette gets a chance to show what he can do. The Bills are likely to keep James Cook as their lead running back but after him they have only Latavius Murray.

Once elevated, Fournette probably surpasses Murray on the depth chart for those carries while also taking some from Cook. It wouldn't be surprising to see it be a split backfield and if that happens, Fournette could be a factor for fantasy football because he would be in line for most of the work around the goal line.
