Leonard Fournette was not much of a difference maker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the regular season, but he broke through in the playoffs and was a big part of the Super Bowl run. He operated as more of a workhorse back in the postseason, but that will likely not be the case in 2021 with the other players on the roster at his position.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

650.5 rushing yards: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Under

Fournette carried the ball 97 times over 13 regular season games in 2020 and rushed for just 3.8 yards per carry for 367 yards on the season. Ronald Jones II should be a significant factor in the offense again, and the Buccaneers added Giovani Bernard in the offseason. There is a very good chance all three see plenty of playing time, which will limit season stats for each of them. We’re going with the under rushing yardage total for Fournette.
