Friday PM Update: Fournette is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. He did not practice on Friday, which could either mean he re-aggravated his injury or the team just gave him some rest. Fournette will test his injury pre-game, and if he can’t go, it will be the backup Rachaad White seeing more work.
Friday update: Fournette was not seen at practice early Friday and could be a non-participant. This isn’t great news considering Fournette was limited earlier in the week due to the foot injury. We could see the Bucs RB miss Week 14 vs. the 49ers, which would clear the way for Rachaad White to get most of the work in the backfield, albeit in a tough matchup.
We have made it to Week 14 of the NFL season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off a divisional win against the New Orleans Saints last Monday. They will take on the San Francisco 49ers in a huge NFC game on Sunday. The Bucs' offense has been bitten by the injury bug this season, and this week is no exception. Starting running back Leonard Fournette was limited on Thursday with a foot injury.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14
Fournette has played in 11 games this season and has 145 rushing attempts for 511 yards and three touchdowns. He adds 49 receptions on 57 targets for 347 yards and three touchdowns. Fournette has seen his workload cut into with the rise of rookie Rachaad White, but he is still involved in the Tampa Bay offense. If Fournette is active on Sunday, you are likely still going to start him in a tough matchup. If Fournette sits, fire up White as his replacement in your Week 14 fantasy football lineups.
