Fournette, Guice and Nick are all different RBs. They compliment each other in different ways. LSU runs a system where it's RB by committee and they consistently mix up who's in the game. It's what throws defenses off and when defenses are on their heels constantly it sure does make the RB look a lot better when he's trucking/juking a tired defense.
Of all the concerns in offense being a RB that's not #1 should be the least of them. Miles philosophy has always been power football using RBs by committee and if capable with a QB, a more balanced attack. You could argue Miles uses a system where it's 3 #1 RBs. Even with the most talented RB LSU had in the past 10 years with Hill Miles still gave his fair share of carries to the other RBs.
