Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) has been cleared to play since February - [Full Article]

Just as he got comfortable last year, Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was injured. Add to that a new offensive system he will begin to learn this week. The foot is fine — Robinson said he was cleared to do everything in February. The role is to be defined — so he has spent the offseason working on catching passes and pass protection techniques.

“I just line up as a receiver and run routes and then run flares out of the backfield,” he said. “I feel a lot better than I did before.”

As for pass protection, new coordinator Greg Olson is expected to put a premium on it for running backs to play. Per Times-Union game charting, Robinson was on the hook for four sacks last year.

Fantasy Impact: 

Robinson saw at least 10 touches in eight games last season and averaged 12.5 fantasy points in PPR formats, and that equates to #13 RB numbers when extrapolated over a full 16-game season. At this point, the Jaguars are expected to draft a running back, so Robinson's position atop the depth chart is tenuous at best. A healthy Toby Gerhart would also be in the mix.
