Leonard Fournette is having something of a dream season. When teams reported to training camp last summer, he was a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who jettisoned him before the season started. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came calling, signed him, and now he’s playing the Super Bowl, having been a featured player in the team’s lead up to this.

In the playoffs, the Bucs have leaned heavily on Fournette, thanks in part to Ronald Jones’ injuries. He’s got 211 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 48 carries in the postseason so far. He’s also got 102 receiving yards and a touchdown on 14 catches in three playoff games this year. Even with Jones back in the picture, he’ll need a big game if the Bucs are going to beat the Chiefs.

Leonard Fournette, Player to have the most rushing yards (+175)

The weak spot in the Chiefs defense is against the run, so expect Tampa Bay to attack them on the ground early on in this one, especially since it helps keep Patrick Mahomes off the field. His biggest competition for this will be his own teammate, Ronald Jones. But Fournette still had an edge over him in their last game, against Green Bay, in both carries and yardage. Another factor here is that the Chiefs just don’t run the ball as much.

Leonard Fournette, Anytime touchdown scorer (+120)

The Chiefs allowed eight rushing touchdowns and five receiving touchdowns to opposing running backs through the regular season and the playoffs. One issue for opposing players is that most teams didn’t have the ability to run the ball much given the one-sided nature of games against Kansas City. Kareem Hunt from the Browns scored on the ground against the Chiefs in the Divisional round.

Fournette has scored in all three of the Buccaneers playoff games so far.
