Robinson had 18 carries for 149 yards and a TD in Week 5 against the Titans.
Robinson has at least 75 yards and 1+ TD in 3 straight games as he is clearly Jacksonville’s best offensive player. He ripped off a 58-yard run on the 2nd drive of the game and later punched it in for a 1-yard TD.
Robinson is a rock-solid RB2 with RB1 upside and has an excellent matchup in Week 6 against the Dolphins.
If you stayed patient with Robinson through 2 tough weeks to open the year, he has paid you back the past 2 weeks.
First came a 15-88-1 rushing line with 6-46 receiving in the loss to Arizona. Then came 78 yards and 2 TDs on the ground in the Thursday night loss at Cincinnati.
Since the goofy opener where Robinson carried only 5 times, he has garnered 78.6% of Jacksonville’s RB rushing attempts. That included a season-high 90% against Cincinnati, in a game that saw Carlos Hyde sit for an apparent shoulder injury.
Robinson offered nothing as a receiver -- 1 catch for minus-2 yards among 2 targets -- but even that area provided no real reason to worry. Robinson ran a route on a season-high 82.75% of Trevor Lawrence’s dropbacks.
Robinson looks like a weekly starter for most 2-RB fantasy lineups right now. Matchups with Tennessee, Miami and Seattle the next 3 games only enhance his outlook.
After splitting touches down the middle with Carlos Hyde in Week 1, Robinson was given a 73% snap share this week, which led to him seeing 11 rushes and 3 targets. Hyde was given just 4 opportunities to touch the ball. Unfortunately, the Jaguars were unable to move the ball with any consistency after the opening drive, and Robinson was unable to make an impact in the red zone. Although he rushed for over 4 yards per carry, he totaled just 64 combined yards.
As long as he’ll continue to see a significant touch advantage over Hyde, there’s no reason to expect that Robinson will be any worse than a low-end RB2. Of course, with HC Urban Meyer, it’s difficult to make those assumptions with confidence. Also, with Trevor Lawrence at QB, it’s unlikely that Robinson will see the same high target volume he saw with the Jaguars’ backup-level QBs in his rookie season. Overall, he may have a few solid weeks, but it’s unlikely he’ll have the same level of fantasy impact he did last year.
Robinson had just 5 carries for 25 yards while Carlos Hyde had 9 rushes for 44 yards in the Jaguars' Week 1 loss to the Texans. Hyde had 2 receptions for 14 yards. Robinson had 3 catches for 29 yards.
It appears as if Robinson and Hyde are going to mostly split RB carries with Robinson as the preferred pass-catching RB.
It will be difficult to trust either back going forward as anything more than a flex option as they are cannibalizing each other in a struggling offense.
