Brian Robinson Jr. Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 18 vs. the Cowboys. RBs Jonathan Williams and Jaret Patterson figure to carry the workload on Sunday. The Cowboys' defense rank as the 4th-toughest matchup for opposing RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. It would've been tough to trust Robinson or Antonio Gibson, who underwent foot surgery on Thursday, in this game for fantasy purposes. We feel even more skittish about the backups. Neither Williams nor Patterson is anything more than speculative RB3/flex consideration.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (knee) didn't practice on Thursday. It's not looking good for the rookie at this point, but Friday will give him a chance to participate in a limited fashion perhaps. RB Antonio Gibson was placed on IR already, and the team elevated RB Jaret Patterson from the practice squad in a corresponding move. This messy situation doesn't bode well for any fantasy manager trying to decipher this situation for Week 18 vs. the Cowboys. Check in tomorrow once we have a more concrete idea of what to expect from the Commanders' backfield.

The Commanders have elevated RB Jaret Patterson from the practice squad, ahead of Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. It's not a surprising move, given that RB Antonio Gibson will be out once again. He landed on IR Thursday after missing last week with knee and foot injuries. RB Brian Robinson Jr. (knee) joined Gibson in missing Wednesday's practice. Don't be surprised if Robinson sits out the finale as well. Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch says Patterson "seems likely to get a large share of work on Sunday." Washington also has RB Jonathan Williams on the active roster. Beware of using any Commanders offensive players in your Week 18 lineup.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, foot) didn't participate in practice on Wednesday. Fellow RB Brian Robinson (knee) also sat out. Hopefully, the pair can get back into action soon. Be sure to check back tomorrow regarding their health ahead of Week 18 vs. the Cowboys.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson logged 24 carries for 87 rushing yards in Week 17's loss to the Browns. RB Jonathan Williams stepped up in the absence of teammate Antonio Gibson, carrying the ball 9 times for 30 yards in addition to 3 receptions for just as many yards through the air. Robinson has now totaled 20+ carries in 3 of his last 4 games. Fantasy managers playing into Week 18 will see the rookie go up against a fairly stout Cowboys defensive front next Sunday. Robinson carries RB2 status on volume alone.

Commanders RB Jaret Patterson has been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. He'll join Brian Robinson and Jonathan Williams in the Antonio Gibson-less backfield. Robinson should dominate the ball-carrying work but is likely to lose passing-down snaps to Williams and potentially Patterson.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot, knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Browns. Rookie RB Brian Robinson is set to step up and assume another big workload. Robinson is averaging 18.3 carries over his last 4 games. Moreover, the Browns rank 26th in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over the last 5 weeks in addition to being the 3rd-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs on the season. Fire up Robinson with confidence as a high-end RB2 candidate.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. That obviously doesn't hurt RB Brian Robinson's Week 17 fantasy profile, but it's worth noting that RB Jonathan Williams stepped into the passing-down role with Gibson banged up late in last week's loss to the 49ers. Robinson still doesn't project for big passing-game usage this weekend -- but he's a strong fantasy play based on his rushing upside against a bad Cleveland run defense.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot/knee) did not practice, and RB Brian Robinson (quad) logged full participation on Thursday. It seems fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Gibson for the fantasy championship round. We'll check in again tomorrow in case something changes. Should Robinson see the backfield to himself, he is best considered a high-end RB2 candidate vs. the Browns in Week 17.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (quad) was listed as a full participant at practice on Wednesday. Fellow RB Antonio Gibson (foot, knee) did not participate. We'll continue to track how the health of this backfield shakes out in advance of Week 17's matchup vs. the Browns.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson Jr. got 22 carries in Saturday's loss to the 49ers, but he managed just 58 yards (2.6 per attempt). It was a predictably tough matchup, with the opposite coming in Week 17. Robinson will carry upside then, against a Browns defense that entered Week 16 as the 4th most friendly to RB scoring.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) logs full practice on Thursday and doesn't carry an injury tag ahead of Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers. The 49ers' defense is a tough front to crack. Gibson is nothing more than an RB3/flex option this week. The same goes for teammate Brian Robinson.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was limited at practice again on Wednesday. Rookie Brian Robinson (quad) logged his 2nd straight full practice. Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers is just around the corner. Though the 49ers D ranks as the 2nd-toughest matchup in adjusted points allowed to RBs, Robinson would have the backfield mostly to himself if Gibson ultimately does not play. Neither RB is more than a flex consideration regardless of what happens though. We'll keep an eye on this and report back tomorrow.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday. The Commanders are set to take the field on Saturday against the 49ers in Week 16, so turnaround time is a bit shorter this week. Both Gibson and teammate Brian Robinson are staring down a brutal matchup against a 49ers defense that ranks as the 2nd-toughest for opposing RBs in 2022. Be cautious of both backs in lineups. Stay tuned for updated information.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson posted 12 carries for 89 yards in Sunday's loss vs. the Giants. The rookie back also collected 1 reception for 18 yards in the receiving game. Teammate Antonio Gibson did not contribute as much, only reaching 21 yards on 5 carries in addition to a pair of catches for another 6 yards receiving. Robinson has been a reliable high-floor flex option of late, however Week 16 will present a tough challenge. The 49ers have shut down opposing RBs this year, ranking 3rd-toughest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to the position. Robinson's high volume in the carries department will vault him into flex consideration next week, though not much should be expected. Same goes for Gibson, who will also be flex-worthy as the complimentary option out of the Commanders' backfield.

Commanders RBs Brian Robinson (quad) and Antonio Gibson (foot) were limited in practice this week, but neither guy is on the final injury report. They should both be ready for their usual roles vs. the Giants on Sunday night: Robinson the lead ball-carrier, Gibson mixing in on early downs and handling most of the pass-catching work.

Commanders RBs Brian Robinson (quad) and Antonio Gibson (foot) were limited in Wednesday's practice. We haven't heard anything to suggest that either guy is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Giants, but we'll keep an eye on them over the next few days.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson Jr. followed his best rushing performance of the season with his 2nd most efficient outing in Sunday's tie with the Giants. He ran 21 times for 96 yards, a 4.6-yard average. That trails only his 5.8 vs. Atlanta in Week 12 and was just his 2nd game this season with 4.0+ yards per rush. Robinson added 2 catches for 15 yards on 2 targets. he matched RB Antonio Gibson's reception total, while beating his backfield mate by 12 rushes. Robinson now gets a Week 14 bye before a rematch with the Giants. After that comes a tough spot vs. San Francisco, but then a top-notch rushing matchup with the Browns.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We’ll get Washington’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but it’s safe to assume that Gibson will be at less than 100% if he plays vs. New York.
