Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette expects to have a role in 2019 passing game

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette expects to have an opportunity to catch passes in 2019 according to quarterback Nick Foles.

What It Means:

"That’s a threat. If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense," said Foles to the media.

On 74 targets in Fournette's career, the Jaguars' back has produced 58 receptions for 487 yards and two touchdowns. If he can stay healthy, look for Fournette to produce workhorse or RB1 fantasy numbers.

Rams will extend Jared Goff, coach says

Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said there is a "zero percent chance" the team does not extend quarterback Jared Goff's contract.

What It Means:

'Whether it ends up happening this year or next year, there is a zero pct. chance this guy's not gonna get an extension he's worthy of," McVay told Mike Silver. Goff threw for 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns with 12 interceptions and averaged 7.5 net yards per dropback. His play did decline somewhat down the stretch, as only completed 58.9% of his throws with 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in five December starts.

Our models project Goff to throw for 4,765.40 yards with 32.47 touchdowns and 11.34 interceptions in 2019.

Theo Riddick could be on the Lions' roster bubble

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick could be on the roster bubble, per the Detroit Free Press.

What It Means:

Riddick is on the final year of his contract and his release would produce $3.7 million in cap savings. He was targeted 71 times last season, which was second on the team, but only managed 370 receiving yards on 57 catches.

Our models project Riddick to rush for 174.9 yards on 45.26 carries, while catching 51.07 passes for 358.66 yards.

Lions' Kerryon Johnson could catch 60 passes, writer pedicts

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press predicts that Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson will catch at least 60 passes this season.

What It Means:

Birkett said that Johnson has impressed as a receiver in offseason practice and says that primary receiving back Theo Riddick is not a lock to make the roster. This would open up opportunities in the passing game for Johnson, who caught 32 passes in 10 games as a rookie last season. Johnson had an 11% target share, compared to Riddick's 14%.

Our numbers are not as bullish, but our models do project Johnson to catch 40.76 passes this season for 291.65. He is also projected to rush for 1,038.06 yards and 5.3 touchdowns on 215.31 attempts.

James Conner expects Steelers to spread out backfield work

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner expects the offense to "spread out" backfield touches "pretty evenly."

What It Means:

Conner handled monster workloads when health allowed last year, but injuries and the late-season emergence of Jaylen Samuels may lead to more of a two-way split in 2019. The Steelers reportedly experimented with two-back formations in OTAs.

numberFire's models believe Conner will record 1,039.3 rushing yards, 498.0 receiving yards, and 10.76 touchdowns next season. He's the RB9 in our preseason fantasy rankings.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
