If there is one thing that has been proven so far this season, it’s that Jaguars rookie back Leonard Fournette was the best choice for them in the draft this past year. He hasn’t been been a star player for them, but he has done his part in helping the Jaguars put points on the board.
He hasn’t had his big highlight play yet, but players don’t need those type of plays to help their team win. Fournette only has 199 rushing yards and three touchdowns in the first three weeks. He’s reached the endzone every game he has played in which is contributing to the Jaguars success they have had.
Bradford ruled out for third straight week
The Jets are not a good team overall. Even with their win against the Miami Dolphins last week, it was a division game in which the Dolphins just played awful the entire game. Their defense shows up at certain points throughout the game, but does not produce a whole lot.
I believe that Fournette could see his breakout game against the Jets. We might see that big highlight play from him in what could get the Jaguars to beat the Jets easily. Even if he doesn’t make a super big play, I believe he gets over 120 rushing yards with two touchdowns. It’s more than likely that the Jaguars will be ahead of the Jets, making it easier for Fournette to get more carries to rack up the yards.
The Jaguars should handle the Jets real easily, but it’s Fournette who should produce most of the numbers. If he is able to get past the Jets defensive line, he’ll be able to excel in the open field, making the Jets defense suffer.
