Khiry Robinson has chance to break out
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints are counting on running back Khiry Robinson to be a breakout candidate in 2014, reports ESPN.

He played well to close the 2013 season -- 152 yards and a touchdown over the final three games on a total of 33 carries (4.6 yards per carry) -- and the Saints relied on him during the playoffs after Pierre Thomas was injured.

The report says Robinson is hoping to build off that success while also becoming a more well-rounded back capable of catching passes and being trusted in pass protection.

"He is someone obviously that has more confidence now," coach Sean Payton said. "You see him, just from an assignment standpoint, understanding the protections much quicker. That took a while for him last year. I think (with) a year under his belt, the overall understanding of all the things he needs to do at the running back position is a lot better. ... He is a lot further along than he was this time last year."

Stars aligning for Khiry Robinson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Khiry Robinson would see a major increase in carries if Pierre Thomas is released. And Robinson showed in 2013 he’ll make the most of his chances.

According to Pro Football Focus, Robinson tied for third among all RBs with 0.47 Fantasy points per opportunity – the number of points per carries or pass routes run. He forced 10 missed tackles on 54 carries, the seventh-best rate among RBs with fewer than 100 touches.

An undrafted rookie, Robinson was solid in the regular season (4.1 yards per carry) and better in the playoffs when he gained 102 yards on 21 carries (4.9 ypc). He got a team-high 13 totes in the divisional loss at Seattle, hammering in a 2-yard touchdown and adding a 13-yard catch. He brought a toughness the Saints’ ground game had lacked. Bill Parcells compared Robinson to Hall of Famer Curtis Martin.

If Thomas does not return, Robinson would be in a timeshare with injury-prone Mark Ingram. Sure, Darren Sproles is there too, but he’s almost strictly a passing-down back.

Coach Sean Payton told reporters he's "very excited" about the development of Ingram and Robinson, saying: "I think those two backs just from a physical power-running standpoint, especially down the stretch, they were tough."

Khiry Robinson bright spot for Saints on Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The trio of running backs that have carried the Saints all season did not include Khiry Robinson. But he is justifying claims that he is the most effective of all.

Robinson was the most impressive back not named Marshawn Lynch on the field Saturday in Seattle. He rushed 13 times for 57 yards and a 2-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter that kept his team alive.

A 17-yard scamper in the middle of the second quarter got Robinson rolling. He finished with 44 yards on eight attempts in the first half, but received fewer opportunities after intermission as his team was forced to pass.

Robinson added a catch for 13 yards in the first quarter.

Saints' running game picking up at right time
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints averaged 79.8 rushing yards per game over their first eight games. Over the final eight, they averaged 104.4. The running game continued to do its part in the playoff win in Philadelphia, producing 185 yards as Mark Ingram gained 97 yards on 18 carries and Khiry Robinson netted 45 yards on eight totes.

New Orleans played without leading rusher Pierre Thomas (chest).

“I love the fact that the coaches had the faith in me and the other backs to run the ball a lot in the game," Ingram told The Advocate.

The Saints likely will find it tougher to run against the Seahawks on Saturday. In Week 13 at Seattle, New Orleans gained 44 yards on 17 carries in a 34-7 loss.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Saints received contributions from several role players during Saturday's Wild Card victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Robert Meachem caught his only target -- a 40-yard pass from Drew Brees in the fourth quarter. Kenny Stills was targeted four times and finished with three grabs for 35 yards while Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill only had one catch. Watson finished with 27 yards and Hill ended the game with nine yards. In the running game, Khiry Robinson finished as the team's second-leading rusher, with eight carries for 45 yards (5.6 yards per carry).
