Jaguars' James Robinson: Plenty of work, but offense stymied
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson registered 73 rushing yards on 17 carries, adding two receptions for 21 yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Steelers.

Robinson was the only Jaguar to garner a carry Sunday, and his workload is likely to remain ample going forward whether or not Chris Thompson (back) is available for the offense. In a performance that yielded no touchdowns and just two receptions, however, Robinson had one of his quieter outings of 2020. The undrafted rookie from Illinois State had entered Sunday's matchup with 22-plus carries and at least 99 rushing yards in three consecutive outings. He is expected to serve as the workhorse for a Week 12 matchup against the Browns' eighth-ranked rush defense.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Ready to face Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers, John Shipley of reports.

Robinson has been limited in practice due to a shoulder injury this week, but he looks on track to handle his usual full workload versus Pittsburgh. The undrafted rookie has put together three straight games with at least 20 rushing attempts, but Pittsburgh's stout defensive front (106.8 average rushing yards allowed per game) will represent one of the tougher matchups he's faced all season.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday.

So far we haven't heard anything to suggest that Robinson is in any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Steelers, but a full practice on his part Friday no doubt would ease the concerns of fantasy managers who are counting on the running back this weekend.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Limited at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson logged a limited practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

Robinson was the only Jaguars player to register a carry in Sunday's loss to the Packers, rushing 23 times for 109 yards in addition to catching two passes for three yards. Given that hefty workload, Robinson may just have been getting some much-deserved maintenance Wednesday, but fantasy managers will still want to check in on his activity during the Jaguars' final two practices of Week 11. If he can move past the shoulder injury to play this weekend against the Steelers, Robinson should once again dominate the snaps and touches out of the backfield.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Breaks century mark in Week 10 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson compiled 109 rushing yards on 23 carries, adding two receptions for three yards during Sunday's 24-20 loss to Green Bay.

Robinson was the only Jaguars player to garner a carry during the Week 10 loss, as Chris Thompson (back) was forced to exit the contest in the first quarter. The undrafted rookie from Illinois State has been fed a heavy workload of 23.3 carries per contest over his past three outings, after he never once exceeded 17 rush attempts in a game Weeks 1 through 6. Robinson has translated the increased opportunity into 327 rushing yards and three total touchdowns, significantly improved production from the 60.3 rushing yards per game he had churned out over the first six appearances of his NFL career. Robinson remains the unquestioned No. 1 back for Jacksonville heading into a daunting Week 11 matchup against Pittsburgh's No. 9 rush defense.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Scores seventh TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson carried 25 times for 99 yards and a touchdown while failing to haul in either of his targets in Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans.

Robinson received a career-high 25 totes in this one and found the sledding a bit tough as he finished with an average of 4.0 yards per carry. He also failed to make an impact in the passing game with Jake Luton under center, but Robinson still managed a respectable fantasy line thanks to a one-yard touchdown plunge in the second quarter. Robinson now has seven scores for the season and should continue to be heavily involved in a favorable matchup with the Packers next Sunday.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Has 100-plus yards, two TDs in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson recorded 22 carries for 119 yards and one touchdown while reeling in four of six targets for 18 yards and another score during Sunday's 39-29 road loss to the Chargers.

After back-to-back relative duds Weeks 5 and 6, Robinson racked up at least 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time since Week 4 with the help of a season high in rushes. He also recorded two TDs in a game for the second time in seven contests to bring his total on the campaign to six scores. Sunday marked the return of Devine Ozigbo to the lineup, but he didn't have a touch before injuring his hamstring. In fact, Robinson was the sole Jags running back to make an appearance in the box score, as Dare Ogunbowale also was blanked. Moving forward, Robinson is the clear top RB in Jacksonville, especially with Chris Thompson on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Ryquell Armstead expected to miss the season due to complications from the illness.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Receiving score saves day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed the ball 12 times for 29 yards in Week 6 against the Lions. He added four receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown.

Robinson was limited in rushing volume due to game script but was the only Jaguars running back to record a carry. He was also able to remain involved in the passing game, hauling in a 14-yard touchdown pass in garbage time to pad his stat line. Robinson's work as a receiver has given him a strong floor throughout the season, as he has recorded at least four receptions in four consecutive games. On the other hand, he has gained just 77 yards on his last 25 carries across the last two contests. He'll look to get back on track as a ball carrier in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Held in check
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed the ball 13 times for 48 yards in Week 5 against Houston. He added five receptions for 22 yards through the air.

Robinson was bottled up by the Texans, as his longest gain of the day was a 14-yard rush midway through the first quarter. It was the first time since Week 1 that Robinson failed to top 100 total yards, though he still commanded 13 of the 15 carries that went to Jacksonville's running backs. Also encouraging was his heavy involvement in the passing game, as he finished second on the team in both targets and receptions. With volume still on his side, Robinson should be in for a bounceback performance against the Lions in Week 6.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Over 100 scrimmage yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed 17 times for 75 yards and caught all four of his targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals.

Robinson topped 100 scrimmage yards for a third consecutive week, but it was a bit disappointing that he failed to do more against a Bengals defense that came in allowing 181.7 yards per game on the ground. Only the Texans entered Week 4 allowing more rushing yards per game, so Robinson will benefit from another favorable matchup when his team travels to Houston in Week 5.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Top offensive weapon in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed 11 times for 46 yards and two touchdowns and brought in all six targets for 83 yards in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday.

Even in a surprisingly lopsided loss, Robinson found a way to stand out yet again. Not only did the undrafted rookie free agent account for both of the Jaguars' scores, he also checked in tops on the team in receptions and receiving yardage. While game script prevented the Illinois State product from seeing the 16-carry workload he enjoyed in the first two games, he's now upped his reception total over that of the previous contest in two straight contests. Given his robust usage and the Bengals' questionable run defense, Robinson's fantasy prospects are favorable for a Week 4 road battle against Cincinnati on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Scores first career TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson rushed 16 times for 102 yards and one touchdown and caught three of four targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.

The 22-year-old had a similar workload to the season opener but found more success on the ground, notching the first 100-yard game and touchdown of his career. Robinson again dominated the touches out of the backfield as Chris Thompson was the only other running back to touch the ball (two carries and three receptions), though the veteran did catch a touchdown pass. Next week's opponent, the Dolphins, have surrendered 328 rushing yards through their first two games of the season, so Robinson should be able to find running room in Week 3.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Totals 90 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson carried the ball 16 times for 62 yards in the team's Week 1 contest against the Colts. He also added one reception for 28 yards.

Robinson was clearly atop the depth chart, as no other running back tallied a carry. While largely unspectacular, Robinson picked up chunk yardage early in the game. His efficiency waned as the contest moved on, though he managed to total 90 yards on 17 combined touches. With the Jacksonville depth chart still murky behind Robinson, he should in line for plenty of touches once again in Week 2 against the Titans.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Confirmed for Week 1 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacksonville offensive coordinator Jay Gruden confirmed that Robinson would serve as the team's starting running back in Sunday's season opener versus the Colts, John Oesher of the team's official site reports. "I feel good about him," Gruden said Wednesday. "I'm excited to watch him play. I know he's excited. He won't show it, though. I haven't seen him smile but twice the whole time since I've been here."

An undrafted rookie out of FCS Illinois State, Robinson saw his hopes of making Jacksonville's roster improve following the Aug. 31 release of Leonard Fournette. He then made further headway up the depth chart when Ryquell Armstead was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sept. 4 and when Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve. Since neither Armstead nor Ozigbo has much of a track record at the NFL level and because the only other two other backs on the roster (Chris Thompson and Dare Ogunbowale) are better suited for third-down roles, Robinson could cement himself as the Jaguars' top option on the ground if he shines out of the gate in his NFL debut. Ozigbo won't be eligible to return until Week 4, while head coach Doug Marrone recently said Armstead is without a clear timeline to resume playing.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Poised to serve as lead back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) on IR and set to miss at least a few weeks, Robinson appears poised to play a prominent role in the Jaguars' Week 1 game plan.

With Ozigbo sidelined, the Jaguars added Dare Ogunbowale to their active roster, but we'd be surprised if the newcomer saw a big workload Sunday against the Colts. With Ryquell Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list and out indefinitely, Robinson -- who is listed atop the team's posted depth chart -- figures to head an early season backfield committee that will also employ Chris Thompson in passing situations. Although weekly game flows may not always favor Robinson, the opportunity now in front of the undrafted rookie makes him worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he's still a free agent.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Gets top billing on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson is listed as the No. 1 running back on the Jaguars' first unofficial depth chart of the season.

In the wake of Ryquell Armstead being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the second time, coach Doug Marrone wasn't able to provide a timetable for the running back's return during media availability Monday. As a result, the remaining trio of Robinson, Devine Ozigbo and Chris Thompson will get the first opportunity to contribute out of a Jaguars backfield without Leonard Fournette, who was waived last week. Robinson is an undrafted rookie, but considering he averaged 21.9 carries and 123.3 rushing yards per game in his final two seasons at Illinois State, he can handle a large workload if called upon. It appears he'll have the chance to do just that Sunday against the Colts on early downs, while Thompson is expected to fill a passing-down role.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Could see work early on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson has a chance to carve out an early-season role in Jacksonville's backfield, Michael DiRocco of reports.

With Leonard Fournette no longer in the mix, coach Doug Marrone indicated that out of the gate the team's backfield strategy will be "situation and matchup-based." Ryquell Armstead is currently on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list. Robinson, an undrafted rookie, has been a pleasant surprise for the team, and it's plausible that he'll be part of an early-down rotation Week 1, possibly with Devine Ozigbo, while veteran Chris Thompson provides a change-of-pace/pass-catching presence.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Secures roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson was informed Saturday that he's made Jacksonville's regular-season roster, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Robinson saw the path to a backfield gig open up earlier this week when the Jaguars waived Leonard Fournette. With Ryquell Armstead (illness) subsequently having been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the undrafted rookie out of Illinois State could even be facing some early season opportunity. In the event that Armstead isn't able to gain full clearance before Sept. 13's season-opener against the Colts, Robinson could end up in the backfield mix behind Chris Thompson and Devine Ozigbo.

Jaguars' James Robinson: Looking good for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Robinson is capable of playing on all three downs, Gene Frenette of The Florida-Times Union reports.

This might be interpreted as a hint that the undrafted rookie out of Illinois State will have a spot on the team's Week 1 roster. The practice squad seemed more likely as recently as a few days ago, but things opened up after the Jaguars waived Leonard Fournette. While Ryquell Armstead, Chris Thompson and Devine Ozigbo are all better bets to get playing time on offense early in the season, it won't come as any surprise if Robinson gets a shot at some point this year.
