Fantasy Impact: 

With Etienne likely out for the year, the Jacksonville backfield should be evaluated with Robinson as the lead back and Carlos Hyde as a solid No. 2 with a significant backup role. Robinson was a bellcow back last season, which led to a top 10 finish, but he is unlikely to see 20+ touches per game with Hyde around. Still, Robinson should see 16-19 touches per game in a lead back role and that should include 3-4 catches per game, since he'll have to take over part of Etienne's role as a pass-catcher. He should be added to a solid group of fantasy RB2s that are going in the 3rd-4th rounds.

The Jacksonville receivers all get a small bump as there are more catches up for grabs with Etienne out. - John Paulsen
