Leonard Fournette Super Bowl 55 Player Prop Preview
An injury to Ronald Jones in the second half of the regular season opened up opportunities for Fournette and the former Jaguar has taken full advantage.
This postseason, Fournette has rushed 23, 22 and 17 times over the Bucs’ three playoff games, gaining 132, 107 and 74 rushing yards in those games. He also found pay dirt in each of those three games and dating back to the regular season, Fournette has scored in five of his past six games with six touchdowns over that span.
The way to attack the Chiefs is with your running backs. According to the fantasy football site 4for4.com, Kansas City ranked 24th against opposing running backs this season. In fact, 35.6% of the fantasy points allowed by the Chiefs this season have gone to running backs, which is the sixth-highest rate in the league behind only the Packers (among playoff teams).
Fournette should provide us plenty of opportunities to cash the over with a handful of his props.
