JAX RB James Robinson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 @ New York Jets
Finally liberated from the petty chains of Urban Meyer, James Robinson was back to his workhorse self under interim Head Coach Darrell Bevell. Robinson saw 18 carries and six targets in his first game since Meyer's firing, turning that into 21 total touches for 88 total yards and a rushing touchdown. Now that's more like it. Meyer's insistence on limiting Robinson's workload always seemed to be more of a power trip for the old college coach than anything else, as Robinson has shown himself to be by far the best skill position player on Jacksonville this year when healthy. The revamped coaching staff appears to realize this, and now Robinson gets a pillow-soft matchup for RBs in the poor Jets defense. Robinson looks like a borderline RB1 now that Meyer is unemployed.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Houston Texans

James Robinson was completely neutralized along with the rest of the Jaguar offense in Week 14. Robinson only gained four yards from scrimmage on six carries and didn't see a target in the passing game. Robinson continues to be the clear lead back for the Jags, but the horrific offensive environment he is playing in gives him an extremely low floor, as shown by his performance against the Titans. Week 15 will bring the most favorable matchup Robinson will see all season in the Texans, who just got gashed for 137 yards and two scores by first-round bust Rashaad Penny last week against Seattle. Last week's box score is scary, but there is almost no way Robinson will have a repeat performance against a defense as terrible as they have in Houston. Robinson is still in the flex conversation despite the recent struggles.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Tennessee Titans
James Robinson had a disastrous Week 13 where he lost a fumble and only managed 35 total yards on nine touches. Robinson was actually benched for a long stretch of the game after losing the early fumble, only to return to take needless hits in a blowout loss. Robinson should remain the lead back in Jacksonville moving forward, but it's clear that any missteps will draw the ire of Urban Meyer and his coaching staff, making Robinson a more risky proposition than previously thought. This week, Robinson takes on a middling Titans defense and should see enough volume to warrant a start in fantasy as an RB3.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Los Angeles Rams

James Robinson logged a fairly typical line in Week 12 when he saw 20 total touches, averaged 5.06 YPC while failing to find the endzone. Robinson will always struggle to score touchdowns in the current Jacksonville offense, but he sees enough volume to be a surefire fantasy starter now that he's healthy. In Week 13 Robinson will have to deal with a Rams defense that is loaded with stars but has actually struggled against the run at times this year. Robinson is always risky given the putrid state of the offense he plays in, but he gets enough volume that he has to be started when active. Keep him in lineups as a solid RB2 this week.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Atlanta Falcons
James Robinson continues to occupy the lead role out of the Jacksonville backfield even while nursing heel and knee injuries that have him limited in practice. Robinson handled all of the 14 RB touches for the Jags in Week 11, and while those touches have limited value on such a bad team, he still sees all of the targets and goal line touches the offense can offer. Robinson's bankable workload keeps him on the RB2 radar even in the face of extremely difficult surrounding circumstances. The Falcons come to town in Week 12 and are not an imposing matchup for opposing offenses. Robinson is a firm fantasy starter this week and for the foreseeable future.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. San Francisco 49ers
James Robinson returned to action in Week 10 and immediately saw 16 touches (12 carries and four receptions) as the clear lead back for the Jags. As long as Robinson is active, he will be fed in a Jacksonville offense starved for talent and playmakers. Efficiency can be tough to come by playing with a rookie QB and weak supporting cast, but Robinson's usage is simply too good to ignore for fantasy purposes. The 49ers will present a tough test in Week 11, but Robinson's role is so defined that he can still be counted on as a volume-based RB2. Feel free to start Robinson in Week 11 despite an unforgiving matchup.

JAX RB James Robinson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Indianapolis Colts
James Robinson returned to practice on Thursday, setting him up for a possible return to action in Week 10 against the Colts. As long as he is reasonably healthy, Robinson should instantly return to the lead backfield role in Jacksonville and be set for 15+ touches each week. The Colts defense is near the middle of the league in most defensive metrics, meaning Robinson should immediately slot into the RB2 range upon his return to the field. Monitor the practice reports in Jacksonville heading into the weekend, but feel free to get Robinson back into starting lineups so long as he doesn't suffer any sort of setback in practice Friday.
