Bottom Line

Robinson escapes an Arthur Smith offense where he was underutilized and is now in an offense that figures to lean heavily on its primary RB.

Upgrading at QB this offseason should also provide more scoring opportunities for Robinson in the red zone and continue his use as a receiver out of the backfield.

His first-round ADP is appropriate for his talent and we have him slotted similarly in our 2024 RB rankings.

Robinson’s volume and talent solidify him as a consistent RB1 producer with potential to be the highest-scoring RB this season.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Robinson’s 1,463 total yards ranked sixth among RBs. His 51 catches ranked 10th.
  • He did not miss any games due to injury.
  • Robinson ranked 14th among RBs in PPR points (220.2) and 16th in points per game (10.6).
    • He finished RB12 or better six times. He recorded six games between RB13 and RB24.
  • He ranked 35th among all ball carriers in rushing success rate at 43.5%.
  • He played 68% of the Falcon’s offensive snaps last season. In those 16 games, he averaged:
    • 12.7 carries
    • 59.25 rushing yards
    • 0.25 rushing TDs
    • 4.9 targets (16.5% share)
    • 3.2 catches
    • 24 receiving yards
    • 0.19 receiving TDs
  • Robinson was a very effective runner as a rookie. Among 51 RBs with 90+ carries last year, he ranked:
    • 28th in Pro Football Focus rushing grade
    • 13th in PFF’s Elusive Rating
    • 12th in NFL Next Gen Stats’ Rush Yards Over Expected Per Attempt
  • He showed promise in receiving metrics as well. Among 43 RBs with 30+ targets, Robinson ranked:
    • 25th in PFF receiving grade
    • 20th in yards per route run

What to Expect in 2024

  • Robinson will play under HC Raheem Morris and first-time OC and play-caller Zac Robinson.
    • Robinson has been on the Rams’ staff since 2019 under Sean McVay, working as the QB coach and pass game coordinator since 2022.
    • While Robinson was on staff, the Rams averaged 456.6 rushes per season.
    • The primary RB had 47.17% of the rushing attempts during that time.
  • Kirk Cousins signed with the Falcons and will provide a significant QB upgrade.
    • Last season Cousins had a superior 85.1 PFF passing grade compared to Desmond Ridder (53.2) and Taylor Heinicke (48.5)
  • The Falcons are expected to be pretty good. They lead the NFC South with a 9.5 win total at most sportsbooks.
  • This expectation of success is largely due to Cousins joining the team. The Falcons’ Super Bowl odds jumped from +4000 before Cousins to +2800 after he signed.
  • Robinson enters his 2nd season at age-22. According to our aging curve research, a RB with Robinson’s profile produces at 94% of his peak value at 22.

Drake London, WR ATL

1:04pm EDT 11/3/23

Drake London out for Week 9

Falcons WR Drake London (groin) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Atlanta with WRs Van Jefferson, KhaDarel Hodge, Mack Hollins, and Scotty Miller. Seriously. TEs Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith should draw more targets with London out. RBs Bijan Robinson and Cordarrelle Patterson could also play expanded roles in the passing game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Falcons RB Bijan Robinson "won't be affected" by the headaches that wiped him out of Week 7's game vs. the Bucs. "Not something long-term that's gonna affect him. Not something that's gonna affect him next week," Rapoport added. Robinson averaged 13.3 carries and 5.3 targets over the first six games of the season and should be back in a similar role vs. the Titans this Sunday.

Falcons RB Bijan Robinson said after the win over the Bucs that he played sparingly because of a consistent headache, per Terrin Waack of the team's official website. "It (started) last night. I was feeling weird," Robinson said. "I woke up, just completely out of it. I tried to take medicine so I could be good for the game. But my head was hurting. Bad. I don't know what was going on. I tried to go in pregame, but then coach (Arthur) Smith said, 'We'll be all right. Let's get you right.'" We'll keep an eye on Robinson's status this coming week, but he should be back in his usual role for next Sunday's game vs. the Titans.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (thigh) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to make his 2023 debut vs. the Packers this weekend. Patterson isn't a viable fantasy option but figures to steal at least a few touches from RBs Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s opener vs. the Panthers. He was limited in practice all week. Patterson shouldn’t be in your Week 1 fantasy plans, but his absence would be a slight boost for RB Bijan Robinson.
