1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The 2020 season marks the beginning of the Tom Brady era for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The window is going to be short considering he’s already 43-years-old, so it’s important to be open to personnel changes to make the most of it.

The Buccaneers would certainly benefit from having a talent like Leonard Fournette who has displayed real promise both as a pass catcher and as a power runner. Having a running back with that kind of versatility paired with Brady and all the receiving weapons they have…watch out, NFL defenses.

The Buccaneers already have real depth at receiver with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin setting the tone with a trio of contributors at tight end. Bolstering the running back position would be the next step for Tampa Bay to truly solidify their roster ahead of the 2020 season.

Not having to give up draft compensation in order to land Fournette makes it all the more logical for the Buccaneers. It’s a low-risk acquisition if the cost isn’t substantial, but even then, a one-year deal for him to play for a contender and reset his value in 2021 makes mutual sense.

  1. You can tell the writer of this article drafted Fournette in his Fantasy team. Lol as this is more of a wish list.
