James Robinson, the undrafted rookie the team opted to keep over the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, ran for 102 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 18 yards in the Jaguars’ 33-30 loss at Tennessee on Sunday. He now has 164 yards on the ground this season, the most by a player in franchise history through his first two games.
The story said the plan of a committee approach has gone out the window for the Jags, who seem to be set on using Robinson as their RB1. Unlike in the season opener, when Robinson had a good first half but was stymied in the second against Indianapolis, Robinson went off in the second half against the Titans. He ran for 85 yards on 10 carries, which included a 17-yard touchdown run. He's worth grabbing if he remains on your wire.
JAX RB James Robinson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Los Angeles Chargers
Once again, the Jaguars found themselves behind last week versus the Lions, which meant James Robinson received only 12 carries for 29 yards. Fantasy owners weren’t totally disappointed though as the rookie snagged four passes for 24 yards and found paydirt for the fourth time. Robinson will remain the team’s featured ball carrier but has a tough matchup versus the Chargers No. 9 run defense. He makes for a low-end RB1 start.
