Slimmed down from 247 pounds to 228
Leonard Fournette’s quest for happiness in football has made him look inward like never before. This entire offseason has been a reawakening. He exiled himself to Wyoming for three months and trained like his career depended on it. He put his personal life under a microscope, cutting out all negative influences while still running toward, not away from, problems in New Orleans. He can change lives. To him, it’s a calling. His weight dropped from 247 to 228. His mind cleared. (Nerdy Football – Tyler Dunne)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Fournette looked good in his first and only action of the preseason, suggesting he isn’t going to let his conditioning slip this time around after reportedly being in such great shape last year. If the Jaguars are getting the version of Fournette that existed at LSU, look out. Assuming he can stay healthy this year – always a big if with him – he’s a great bet to lead the league in touches in what should be an improved offense in Jacksonville.
