Draft note
by John Paulsen
The undrafted rookie somehow won the Jaguars RB1 job in the summer and never let go, finishing No. 7 in half-PPR formats in 2020. Unfortunately for his draft stock, the new coaching regime in Jacksonville decided to spend a first round pick on a running back, Travis Etienne. Etienne injured his foot in late August and will miss the season, so Robinson projects to have a heavy workload, though Carlos Hyde will eat into his touches a bit. SI’s Connor Orr suggested that the Jaguars will be run-heavy in 2021 to protect Trevor Lawrence in his rookie season. If that’s the case, Robinson has top-10 potential. His ADP should rise into the third or fourth round alongside David Montgomery and Chris Carson.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Denver Broncos
Week 1 was disappointing for managers who started James Robinson as their RB2 and the peripheral numbers were not promising for his future prospects. Robinson played 46 snaps to Carlos Hyde's 25, but Robinson only saw five carries compared to eight for Hyde. Robinson did get most of the backfield targets (six to two in favor of Robinson), but with the Jacksonville offense looking rough as a whole, such a limited workload will not produce RB2 numbers very often. Now the Jags will host a strong Broncos defense that dismantled the Giants offense in their opener. At this point, Robinson is best thought of as a decent flex option rather than the RB2 we thought he would be heading into Week 1, and one who is a better play when the Jags will likely face a negative game script and be forced to pass.
