Now obviously, a lot of teams will be interested in Fournette. But take a look at this little nugget from Bovada.
What team will Fournette be on for week 1 of the regular season?

Currently, Bovada has the Patriots at +285 to sign Fournette. So it has to be asked. Could the Patriots land Leonard Fournette in New England?
What’s the Deal with Sony Michel?
Is Michel healthy? Will he be ready to go for week one? If he’s healthy, there’s no real need to bring in a Leonard Fournette. But if he’s not 100%, it’s worth at least kicking the tires on the idea.
How do the Patriots View Damien Harris?
There’s been a lot of talk from fans about wanting Damien Harris to get touches this season. Harris is a prolific runner out of college who simply needs a shot. This seems like a great season to get some touches alongside guys like Rex Burkhead and Lamar Miller. Not James White as much because he’s more of the receiving back option for this Patriots team. But let’s see what Harris’s role is first before we go full tilt on Fournette.
Do I personally think the Patriots are signing Leonard Fournette? No. I think the Patriots have enough depth at the position where they need to focus on other positions. I’d much rather see them spend money on a guy like Jadeveon Clowney, whose still a free agent. Leonard Fournette is a nice pipe dream. But I don’t see it happening.
