Jaguars RB James Robinson racked up 100 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's beatdown of the Chargers, including a 50-yard run for the team's only ground TD. Robinson added 16 yards on 3 catches, matching Travis Etienne in targets (3). Etienne saw his playing time rebound vs. Week 2 but still fell short of Robinson in both total snaps and pass routes. Robinson has emerged as the clear backfield leader through 3 weeks, with Etienne acting as a mere complement.

Technically, Jaguars RB Travis Etienne garnered a larger share of the carries split with James Robinson vs. Week 1. He went from 26.7% of their combined Week 1 rushes to a whopping 28.1% in Sunday's win over the Colts. That's sarcasm, in case you couldn't tell. Etienne drew just 9 rushes vs. Robinson's 23 against Indianapolis. And neither did much with them. Robinson flashed for a 37-yard TD run. But he averaged only 2.8 yards per rush overall. Etienne fared even worse: 2.2 per carry, with a long run of 6 yards. And this time, Robinson even ran 2 more pass routes, according to Pro Football Focus. Etienne did catch all 3 of his targets for 33 yards, but he's endured a terrible start to his season. We'll see if anything changes, but Etienne shouldn't be near fantasy football lineups for Week 3.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Jaguars RBs Travis Etienne and James Robinson will continue splitting carries vs. the Colts today. Robinson out-carried Etienne 11 to 4 in the opener, but Etienne actually played 2 more snaps. Expect the carry split to be much closer to 50/50 today. Rapoport adds that there will be "a little more emphasis on the run" against Indianapolis.

Jags RB Travis Etienne rushed only 4 times for 47 yards in Sunday’s loss to Washington. He added 2 catches on 4 targets but missed out on a potential TD when he dropped a pass near the goal line. The 2nd-year back was also overthrown by Trevor Lawrence in the end zone. Beyond the tough-luck result, it’s certainly concerning that James Robinson out-carried Etienne 11-4. And shockingly, Robinson (Achilles') already looked back to pre-injury form. Next up is a home date with Indianapolis.

Less than 9 months removed from an Achilles tear, Jags RB James Robinson scored twice against Washington. He scored once through the air and once on the ground in a great display of vision and tackle-breaking ability. On the day, he out-carried Travis Etienne 11-4. Robinson’s pass catching role figures to remain minor going forward, but the real takeaway here is that he looks 100% healthy.

Jaguars RB Snoop Conner is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Commanders. It's surprising with RB James Robinson playing his first game since his torn Achilles. Either Robinson will play a bigger role than we're expecting -- or RB Travis Etienne will get big volume today.

Jaguars RB James Robinson will play in Sunday's opener vs. the Commanders, HC Doug Pederson said Monday. It's been an impressive recovery for Robinson from his December 26 Achilles tear. Now we'll see whether he can regain pre-injury form from an injury that tends to sap RBs' explosiveness. Robinson isn't a viable Week 1 fantasy play, but we'll see how much he eats into RB Travis Etienne's workload.

ESPN's Michael DiRocco writes that RB James Robinson (Achilles) is expected to be "fully cleared" for Week 1. "But don't expect him to have a normal workload right away," DiRocco adds. Robinson has made an impressive recovery from his torn Achilles, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be. We're still generally fading him in fantasy drafts. DiRocco also says that, "even after Robinson returns [Travis] Etienne will be heavily featured in the offense."

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Thursday that the "expectation" is that RB James Robinson will be ready for Week 1. That was implied when Jacksonville left Robinson off the PUP list to open training camp. Still, it'd be an impressively quick recovery from a guy who tore his Achilles on December 26. Of course, it remains to be seen how much work Robinson is able to handle and how effective he'll be out of the gate. We're not overly interested in him as a draft target. But Robinson's status certainly impacts RB Travis Etienne's fantasy value.

ESPN's Michael DiRocco's "educated guess" is that Jaguars RB James Robinson will lead the team in carries this season, "but Etienne could have a slight lead in total touches." It seems very likely that Etienne serves as Jacksonville's primary pass-catching back. But exactly how carries will be divided is the big question -- especially since you'll need to spend a 3rd- or 4th-round pick to land Etienne. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Jacksonville's backfield plans.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) will not be placed on the PUP list to open training camp, HC Doug Pederson said. That makes Robinson ineligible for the reserve PUP, which means Jacksonville believes he'll be available before Week 5. Robinson is just about 7 months removed from tearing his left Achilles. We're still not excited about his 2022 fantasy outlook, but his surprisingly fast recovery from this injury is at least a slight concern for folks hoping for a Travis Etienne breakout this season.

Jaguars RB James Robinson has resumed running. An Instagram video shows him running around half speed, but consider it a step forward in his return from a late-December Achilles tear. Previously, HC Doug Pederson had said that a return to the field for training camp is realistic. Time will tell on that. But with Robinson’s role and effectiveness in question, we’re circling Travis Etienne as a Round 4 target.

Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (Lisfranc) told reporters on Monday that he's been running in the pool and will resuming running on the field soon. He expects to be ready for the start of camp. Etienne underwent surgery on September 2 to repair the Lisfranc tear in his left foot. He was expected to be sidelined for 4 months, so it sounds like his rehab is on track. Etienne should be ready to roll for the start of the 2022 season. We can't say the same for RB James Robinson, who tore his left Achilles in late December.

Jaguars RB James Robinson has a torn Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That not only ends Robinson's 2021 season but also puts his status for the start of 2022 in question. We'll track his rehab this offseason. It looks like Dare Ogunbowale will close out the season as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars RB James Robinson was carted to the locker room after suffering a non-contact left leg injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets. We'll update his status when we know more. Dare Ogunbowale has stepped in as Jacksonville's lead back.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's a torn Achilles' tendon for Robinson. That not only ends his season but potentially challenges his start to 2022. We'll see how he progresses through the offseason.

5:24pm EST 12/21/21

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde (concussion) has been placed on IR, ending his season. RB James Robinson racked up 18 carries and 6 targets with Hyde out last week and should be a workhorse the rest of the way.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Between his absence and the departure of clownshow Urban Meyer, James Robinson is back in play as a RB2 with upside.

The Jaguars fired HC Urban Meyer. He didn't even last a year in Jacksonville. Meyer's performance was embarrassing both on and off the field. Darrell Bevell -- who has 15 years of experience as an OC -- will take over as interim HC. Meyer's departure can only be good news for Jacksonville's offense, although we still wouldn't go too crazy investing in Jaguars down the stretch.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is in the concussion protocol and did not practice on Wednesday. He's been eating into RB James Robinson's workload lately, so Hyde' absence vs. the Texans on Sunday would be a small boost to Robinson's fantasy stock.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (heel, knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday after being limited all last week. It’s unclear if that means Robinson is ready for a bigger role this weekend vs. the Titans. He’s averaged 12.3 carries and 4 targets over the last 4 games.
