The Buffalo Bills added a star offensive weapon to help with the backfield in Week 18. The Bills play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night to determine the winner of the AFC East.
The Buffalo Bills add another RB for Sunday night
The Bills added a depth piece on the practice squad at running back in late October to help the team in the playoffs, Leonard Fournette. According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, the Bills elevated Fournette for their game against the Dolphins.

“Playoff Lenny” has had just one tune-up game with the Bills this season when he played against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16. Fournette ran the ball five times for 20 yards against the Chargers.
Fournette, who won LV with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, should see a bigger role for the Bills in January. It makes sense the team is adding him for a game that will decide if the Bills will play at home next weekend. It’ll be interesting to see if the Bills give him more carries than Ty Johnson or Latavius Murray against the Dolphins.
Johnson or Murray could be placed on the inactive list in Week 18 since the Bills don’t really need four running backs Sunday night.
