Fournette rejoined the Jaguars on Monday after serving a one-game suspension, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

Minus Fournette in Week 13, the Jaguars beat the Colts 6-0 on Sunday, with Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon handling the team's backfield duties. Now past his suspension, Fournette is poised to head the team's running attack Thursday against the Titans. In three games played since returning from a hamstring injury, Fournette logged the bulk of Jacksonvile's carries, en route to scoring five TDs in that span.

Fournette's one-game suspension was upheld Wednesday by independent arbitrator James Thrash. The running back will miss Sunday's game against the Colts before returning to the Jaguars' active roster the following day.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette will be sidelined for the seventh time this season -- and the first for a non-injury-related reason -- after he left the sideline and got involved in a scuffle in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Bills. With Fournette in street clothes this weekend, T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde will pick up most of the available backfield snaps, with Yeldon perhaps offering the higher fantasy ceiling of the two due to his use on passing downs. Fournette should reclaim his usual high-volume role for the Jaguars' final four games of 2018.

Fournette is appealing his one-game suspension, with the hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette has been suspended for Sunday's game against the Colts after playing a central role in a brawl during a Week 12 loss to the Bills. He hopes to have his ban overturned, but the Jaguars probably shouldn't count on a favorable verdict, considering Fournette came off the bench to throw punches at an opponent. Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon will man the Jacksonville backfield in Week 13 if Fournette's suspension is upheld.

Fournette has been suspended one game for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette was involved in a scuffle in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Bills and was ejected. He will now face further punishment and be forced to miss a divisional matchup against the Colts in Week 13, which will be his seventh missed game this season. Luckily, the Jaguars possess a pair of talented backs behind Fournette in Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon, who each figure to see an increased role in his absence.

Fournette was ejected from Sunday's game against the Bills following a third-quarter scuffle, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately for those who rolled with Fournette in Week 12 lineups, the running back logged 18 carries for 95 yards with two TDs and caught three passes for 13 yards prior to his early exit from Sunday's game. Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon will handle the Jaguars' backfield duties for the remainder of the contest.

Fournette rushed 28 times for 95 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette ceded 13 carries to the combination of Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon, but he was by far Jacksonville's most effective offensive player, with nobody else reaching even half his output in either the rushing or receiving categories. After three first-half field goals, Fournette took the ball into the end zone from two yards out in the third quarter to give his team a 16-0 lead. It was all Steelers from there, but Fournette's owners should be encouraged by his ability to handle a workhorse role. He should see plenty of touches against the Bills in Week 12.

Fournette indicated Thursday that he's fully confident in the health of his hamstring after playing 39 of the Jaguars' 75 offensive snaps (52 percent) in the 29-26 loss to the Colts in Week 10, John Oehser of Jacksonville's official site reports. "I don't second-guess my injury that I had or nothing like that. I go out there and play full force," Fournette said.

EDGE Analysis

The Jaguars weren't shy about leaning heavily on Fournette in his return from a four-game absence, as the second-year back drew more snaps that both T.J. Yeldon (27) and Carlos Hyde (nine) combined and finished with 24 carries for 53 yards and a score and added another 56 yards and a touchdown on five receptions. Fournette reported no setbacks coming out of that contest and appears to be reasonably healthy entering Sunday's game against the Steelers, a notion supported by the Jaguars' decision to exclude him from their Week 11 injury report. With offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett stating Thursday that there was no specific "pitch count" planned for Fournette this weekend, it's far to expect the 23-year-old to handle another sizable workload on the ground if game flow allows for it.

Fournette carried 24 times for 53 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Colts. He also caught five passes for 56 additional yards and a touchdown in the 29-26 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette made his return after a four-game absence and assumed a massive workload right off the bat. He managed just 2.2 yards per carry against a surprising Colts front, but he was able to plunge into the end zone from a yard out in the second quarter. Fournette's team was behind for most of the day, so he also made a large impact as a receiver and scored another touchdown on a one-yard reception in the third. The second-year back appears to be fully healthy moving forward and will look to make his presence felt next Sunday against the Steelers.

Fournette (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts after practicing fully all week.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette is slated to return to action Sunday after missing the Jaguars' last four games, which were all losses. Meanwhile, Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon remain on hand to work in complementary roles, but when healthy, Fournette is Jacksonville's clear-cut top option. It remains to be seen how many carries Fournette is handed in his return to action, but we suspect that the Jaguars will rely heavily on the bolstered strength/depth of their running attack in Week 10. Fournette should therefore reclaim fantasy relevance this weekend, in the absence of any in-game setbacks.

Fournette (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

On the heels of the Jaguars' bye week, Fournette -- who has missed six of the team's last seven games -- is slated to return to action Sunday against the Colts. Carlos Hyde and T.J. Yeldon are also on hand, but when healthy, Fournette is Jacksonville's clear-cut top back. Given that the team is in the midst of a four-game slide, it wouldn't surprise us if the team employed a run-heavy attack this weekend. In such a scenario, Fournette could make a fantasy splash in Week 10, assuming he's given close to a normal workload.
