Smitty’s Take: A few reports out today suggest that Leonard Fournette (questionable, hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 2. Fournette has missed practice all week, so this sounds about right, which means that T.J. Yeldon is set to start against the Patriots. Corey Grant could get some touches as well. Fournette is the only bust prediction on this year’s 2018 Bold Predictions, and we are glad we avoided him at his first-round price tag back in August. He has a long history of being banged up, and he has an aggressive rushing style that does not mix well with his injury history. Mix in that he dropped a bunch of weight (not a good thing for an aggressive rusher), there were a ton of red flags here entering 2018. If you own the runner, we recommend selling high just as soon as he gets back and has some big stats.
