Despite Leonard Fournette’s struggles to stay healthy, lack of production and off-field scorning from management last year, new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo plans on Fournette being a focal point of his offense in 2019, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
“We’re really looking forward to Leonard having a big year,” DeFilippo said this week, via the team’s official website. “I’m going to call it what it is: He’s going to be a major reason where our offense goes. I’m not going to sugarcoat that. Leonard Fournette needs to be a big part of this offense.
“The harder he works — which he is right now — that’s going to be not only good for our offense, but good for our team.”
