RB: Start ‘Em

Start of the WeekLeonard Fournette at CIN

After starting the season moderately slow, Fournette has exploded over the past three weeks totaling 500 yards from scrimmage. The one downside to Fournette’s stellar performances is his inability to find the endzone (just one TD all season). That will almost undoubtedly change this week, as no team in the NFL allows more rushing touchdowns to running backs on a per-game basis than the Cincinnati Bengals.
