Is Leonard Fournette playing Monday night? Fantasy injury update for Saints-Bucs Week 13 Monday Night Football (Updated)

Leonard Fournette is officially listed as doubtful for Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy owners who have been hoping for a Leonard Fournette return this week are likely to be disappointed. The Jacksonville Jaguars running back is officially listed as doubtful for Monday night’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fournette has missed the past two games with a lingering ankle injury, and though he returned to practice on a limited basis this week, it appears he is not quite ready to return to game action.

This is a tough break for fantasy owners, as Fournette was looking like a must-start option when healthy. With him out, Chris Ivory is likely to see the lion’s share of carries for the Jaguars, making him a viable flex option in most fantasy formats.

As for Monday night’s game itself, it looks like it could be a shootout, with both the Saints and Buccaneers boasting high-powered offenses. That could mean plenty of points for fantasy owners, even without Fournette in the mix.
