Another benefit of renting him, like we should, is its a win win. If he has a good year a comp pick becomes a possibility. If he doesn't at least he's quality depth if Monty becomes something.
Also these player comps are terrible and no udfa is gonna be better. Fournette is very unique in the fact that he has elite long speed for his size, one of the top mph speeds by any NFL player multiple times. He can block at an elite level. He has very good hands despite not being a great route runner. Solid check down option. We want to run the ball more but we have no RBs especially with Monty hurt. PFF says he can't break tackles but the same day says he's 8 in the league in YAC. Fournette doesn't have to be a world beater to be a good pickup for us now. Joe Mixon just got 12 per and I'd say his baggage is 10x that of Fournette.
