Fantasy Football analysis: Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette

Fournette rushed for 56 yards with a touchdown on 14 carries, and he caught 10 passes for 83 yards with a score for his best fantasy football performance of the season in a 21-15 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He is the clear lead back in an offense that could score a lot in a matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, which allowed 6.7 yards per carry in last week’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
