We have waived RB Leonard Fournette.— #DUUUVAL (@Jaguars) August 31, 2020
I don’t think a single player from the Jaguars 2017 AFC Championship team are left. The Jaguars recently traded away Yannick Ngakoue to the Vikings and now the entire defense of 2017 is gone. Fournette getting waived with less than two weeks before the season was a shocker. Coach Doug Marone says the only reason for cutting Fournette was on the field performance. The Jaguars declined Fournette’s 5th year option and after not finding a single trade partner the Jaguars decided it was in their best interest to cut the 3rd year running back.
Now personally I think this is a ridiculous cutting of a player. Two weeks before the season you’re gonna cut the 4th overall pick from 2017? He can’t be playing so badly that he’s not even worth a single roster spot in Jacksonville, did he really play so badly that fifth round draft pick Ryquell Armstead is going to be the lead back in Duval? Am I overreacting because I drafted Fournette in one of my fantasy leagues. No. I am reacting the correct amount. What the fuck Jacksonville! Cut the guy earlier or at least leak a rumor to the public a little. It’s fantasy football draft season, you can’t be cutting high profile players willy fuckin nilly. So thanks a lot Jacksonville you fucked up my draft. I’ll be sending you the bill for my league dues.
