James Robinson Fantasy Football News 2021

The Jaguars have named Darrell Bevell their new OC. Multiple teams were interested in hiring the 51-year-old, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, but Bevell opted to join HC Urban Meyer in Jacksonville. Bevell has 14 seasons of experience as an NFL OC. He spent the past 2 years in Detroit, where the Lions ranked near the middle of the pack in total yards and points. Bevell's units were better during his Seattle tenure from 2011 to 2017, with 5 of those 7 squads finishing top 11 in points. His offenses have generally leaned toward the run, with 10 of the 14 ranking among the top half of the league in rush attempts. Only 4 of them have finished top-16 in pass attempts.

The Jaguars have hired Urban Meyer as HC. It'll be his first foray into the NFL after spending over 30 years in the college ranks. Meyer most recently served as Ohio State's HC from 2012-2018, leading the Buckeyes to an 83-9 record and 1 national championship. He also won 2 titles among 6 seasons as Florida's HC and spent 2 years before that as HC at Utah. Meyer was reportedly infatuated with the idea of coaching incoming rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. (Who wouldn't be?) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that Meyer is eyeing Scott Linehan as his OC, although that move isn't official yet.

The Jaguars have fired HC Doug Marrone, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Marrone went 10-6 in his 1st full season at the helm but totaled just 12 wins over the past 3 years. Jacksonville has already been linked to former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer. Whoever gets the gig figures to be working with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) won't play in Sunday's finale vs. the Colts, HC Doug Marrone said Wednesday. Robinson finishes his impressive rookie campaign with 1,414 yards and 10 TDs, ranking 6th among RBs in PPR points per game. Dare Ogunbowale figures to close out the season as Jacksonville's lead back after handling 14 carries and 5 targets last week.

As expected, Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Bears. His absence leaves Jacksonville's backfield to Devine Ozigbo and Dare Ogunbowale. Neither is a bankable fantasy play.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) won't play against the Bears tomorrow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie's absence leaves Jacksonville with RBs Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozgibo, who have combined for 15 touches this season. Try to avoid this backfield in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. HC Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Robinson was on track to play, but it's unclear if that's still the case after the rookie missed practice all week. It's worth noting again that the experts at ProFootballDoc.com believe Robinson suffered a high-ankle sprain last week. Fantasy owners should certainly have an alternative lined up for Week 16 lineups. Robinson's absence would leave Jacksonville's backfield to Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo. Neither would be a bankable fantasy play.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday but is expected to play vs. the Bears this weekend, HC Doug Marrone said Wednesday. We'll keep a close eye on the rookie's status over the next few days. Jacksonville's backfield would be hands-off for fantasy lineups if Robinson misses this one.

Jaguars RB James Robinson injured his ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday’s game against the Ravens. The folks at ProFootballDoc.com believe Robinson is likely dealing with a high-ankle sprain. If that’s the case, he’ll likely miss the final 2 games of the season. We should get an update on his status tomorrow. Robinson's absence would leave Jacksonville's backfield to Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Campbell's absence enhances the rushing matchup for Jacksonville RB James Robinson. A secondary missing Peters and CB Jimmy Smith helps the matchup for Jaguars WRs as well.

Jaguars RB Chris Thompson has been placed on IR with the back injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Packers. He'll miss at least the next 3 games. Dare Ogunbowale replaced Thompson as Jacksonville's chance-of-pace back vs. Green Bay, but James Robinson will continue to dominate backfield work here.

Jaguars RB Chris Thompson suffered a back injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Packers and is officially questionable to return. If he doesn't, James Robinson figures to handle 100% of Jacksonville's RB touches.

The Jaguars placed RB Chris Thompson on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday's game against the Chargers -- and potentially more action beyond that. In a corresponding move, RB Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) was activated from IR. Ozigbo looked set to play a big role for the Jags this season before a September hamstring injury sidelined him. James Robinson has taken over Jacksonville's backfield since, but we'll see what kind of role Ozigbo can carve out.

A member of Jacksonville's practice squad tested positive for COVID on Friday night, the team announced. The Jaguars are still planning on playing vs. the Lions on Sunday, but the situation obviously bears monitoring over the next 24 hours.

Jaguars OC Jay Gruden said RB James Robinson "can handle the workload. He’s tough. He’s strong. He’s got great vision. He can explode through holes. We’ve been impressed with him." Frankly, Jacksonville doesn't have a choice but to make Robinson the lead ball-carrier, with Ryquell Armstead on the COVID list and Devine Ozigbo on IR with a hamstring injury. Robinson is a good bet for 10+ carries in Sunday's opener vs. the Colts. But he doesn't bring much TD upside and will lose most of the pass-catching work to RB Chris Thompson.
