Denard Robinson looking more like a Week 8 sleeper
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the news Thursday that Week 7 breakout Denard Robinson will get the bulk of the carries Week 8 against Miami even with the return of Toby Gerhart from a sprained foot, Robinson goes from a shaky start in Fantasy to at least a decent one.

Working behind the same offensive line with the same supporting cast that has reduced Toby Gerhart, Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman to a combined 2.7 yards per carry this season, Robinson had 127 yards on 22 carries in Week 7. Granted, that was with an especially favorable matchup against the Browns, who rank 32nd against the run, and this is with a not so favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who rank 10th. But still, a running back with a big workload is a valuable thing.

Before that news, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard barely had Denard Robinson in their top 30 running backs for Week 8, but with it, he jumps to about 20th for me, ahead of Doug Martin, Tre Mason and Chris Ivory, among others.

Jaguars coach: Robinson featured in Week 8 over Gerhart
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Gus Bradley has announced that Week 7 breakout back Denard Robinson will receive the bulk of the carries for the Jaguars in Week 8 against Miami, per the Florida Times-Union. Toby Gerhart, who returns from injury with a 2.6 YPC average, will serve as his backup.

The former Michigan quarterback exploded for 127 yards on 22 carries and added three receptions Sunday against Cleveland. It marked his first double-figure attempt day in the NFL.

Gerhart appears set to play after missing two games with a foot sprain.

Healthy Gerhart could put squeeze on Jaguars RB Robinson
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart appears on the verge of returning to game action after missing the last two weeks with a foot sprain. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

"He said he felt pretty good," Gus Bradley told the Florida Times-Union. "I think the last two weeks have been tough on him, but today he felt a lot better and felt like it was beneficial to have that time off."

Now it must be determined if he's still the featured back. He managed a 2.6 YPC average in 48 attempts before going down. Meanwhile, Denard Robinson emerged in Week 7 to rush for 127 yards on just 22 carries in the team's first victory of the season, a lopsided defeat of Cleveland.

"I think we'll continue to mix and match a little bit," said offensive coordinator Jeff Fisch. "I don't exactly how that will all play out yet."

The Jaguars host Miami on Sunday.

Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list.

Looking ahead for Denard Robinson
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is the hot name and will be the top option on waivers this week, but what should Fantasy owners expect from him moving forward?

Robinson seems likely to remain the team's top back moving forward, though coach Gus Bradley was seemingly noncommittal when asked if Toby Gerhart will cut into his playing time upon his return. Still, Robinson should continue to see a healthy workload, so the question is how much Fantasy owners can expect from him.

Even if Robinson is to be unleashed again in Week 8 against the Dolphins, he will go up against a team that has proven pretty adept at slowing down running backs this season. With the exception of Weeks 3 and 7, when Matt Forte, Knile Davis and Joe McKnight racked up a combined 57 points -- including 30 through the air, which hasn't been Robinson's strength -- Miami's defense has done a good job against opposing running backs. In the team's other four games, only one back has reached double digits in Fantasy scoring, when Shane Vereen had 12 back in Week 1.

Robinson found success in his breakout in Week 7, but that was against a Browns defense that had allowed five double digit Fantasy performances by running backs in their first five games. Fortunately, things get easier after that, with the slumping Bengals on the way in Week 9. Robinson should be a useful Fantasy option moving forward, even if he might struggle a bit in Week 8.
