Leonard Fournette ready for tough challenge against Texans

Brant Tedeschi Sep 9th 5:51 PM EDT.

Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars have a very tough match-up in Week 1 against the Houston Texans. Despite the tough match-up, Fournette should be starting in all formats and will likely get 15+ touches in the contest.

The workload should be there all season for Forunette, but with a match-up this tough I would expect Fournette to be a low end RB1 or high-end RB2. We have him projected to get 15 touches and 74 total yards.

The Texans have a lot to play for after the chaos in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey. JJ Watt will be ready to role after securing 30 million for hurricane relief and making his much anticipated comeback. Expect NRG Stadium to be rocking.

If the Jaguars can hang tough early and not dig themselves in a hole, then Fournette could see close to 20 touches.
