Bijan Robinson, Tyler Allgeier shoulder the load in Week 2

Bijan Robinson Headshot

Falcons RB Bijan Robinson recorded 19 attempts for 124 rushing yards in Week 2’s win vs. the Packers. The rookie also added 4 catches on 5 targets for 48 yards as a receiver. Teammate RB Tyler Allgeier also had plenty of involvement, logging 16 carries for 48 rushing yards, but failed to see any involvement in the passing game. Similarly to Week 1, 49.1% of the Falcons’ total yards funneled through their RBs despite QB Desmond Ridder nearly doubling his pass attempts. It’s reasonable to expect Atlanta to continue their ground-and-pound approach again next week vs. the Lions. Both Robinson and Allgeier remain viable fantasy options as long as HC Arthur Smith keeps focuses this offense through the backfield at such a high rate.
