Jaguars | Denard Robinson praised by coach

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 13:13:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was recently lauded by head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley said Robinson is extremely competitive and the drive to succeed and get better came from within for Robinson.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Robinson could be the team's No. 1 running back even when Toby Gerhart returns, though Gerhart will probably at least take away short-yardage and goal-line carries. Robinson is a decent investment this week against the Miami Dolphins for $4,700 on FantasyScore.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson delivers

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:13:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson rushed 22 times for 127 yards in the Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 19. He was the team's first 100-yard rusher in almost a calendar year. Head coach Gus Bradley was somewhat vague when asked if Robinson would keep the featured back role. "Yeah, I think so. We'll look at the film. He did a good job and we hope to get Toby (Gerhart) back," Bradley said.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson was aided by the team having a lead and not having to throw every down. His performance was encouraging, but it's going to be hard to repeat. He'll serve as a flex option on FantasyScore.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson comes up big

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 20:02:18 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson ran for a career-high 127 yards with a touchdown in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. "The last time I carried the ball 20 times I was in college," Robinson said Sunday, Oct. 19. "It's a great feeling. We knew it was coming. We've just got to stack them and up and get back to work."

Fantasy Tip: Robinson will be a hot add off the waiver wire this week in seasonal fantasy leagues. In FantasyScore, as long as his salary doesn't explode this week, he might be worth a look for one of your flex spots next time out.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson starting

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:43:58 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson is starting against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is an excellent bargain bin option on FantasyScore today. However, their offensive line has been dismal this season. Temper your expectations.

Jaguars | Jags to use three-headed RB monster

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:55:58 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson will split first- and second-down snaps in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns, while RB Jordan Todman will handle third-down duties with RB Toby Gerhart (foot) ruled out for a second straight game.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson posted a rushing touchdown last week, and is your best bet in FantasyScore, especially at just $4,000 salary (or 8.0 percent of the cap). Robinson and Todman are $3,000 (or 6.0 percent of the cap), but figure to see fewer touches, especially Todman.

Jaguars | Committee approach for Jags backfield

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 13:36:16 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson have all shared carries in the backfield. The team ranks 31st in the league in rushing, averaging just 67 yards per game. Johnson is the wild card in the backfield, as he ran four times for a team-high 27 yards in his debut in Week 5. "It's not surprising to me," head coach Gus Bradley said. "I mentioned two weeks ago he had a good practice. Last week he had a good week, and it's that trust and he's building trust. For him to go in there and perform and really capture his opportunity was pretty cool to see. ... The runs he had were very impressive."

Johnson reinjured his ankle last Week, but he's expected to be fine for Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans. Johnson could become a starter for the team at some point this year, as the team hasn't been reluctant to trust their rookies on offense. Both general manager David Caldwell and Bradley think it's smarter to go with the younger player if competition is close between two players. Gerhart sprained his right foot in Week 5 and finished with a season-low four carries for nine yards while playing just 10 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart ($3,700) is a bargain option at FantasyScore this week, assuming he plays. The Titans have been terrible at stopping the run. Johnson ($3,000) is riding high right now and could see more touches, though, if the team goes with the hot hand.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson staying in RB mix

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 19:52:15 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will continue to be involved in a rotation at running back with RB Toby Gerhart, and head coach Gus Bradley said the team strongly believes in Gerhart but will continue to search for the right mix at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson has the speed to break a big run, but with the Jacksonville offensive line struggling and rookie Blake Bortles now starting at quarterback, points could remain hard to come by for the Jaguars. Given the situation, Robinson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is an unwise gamble at FantasyScore in Week 5.

Jaguars | JAX RB rotation underway

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 06:44:22 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson appeared to play in a rotation Sunday, Sept. 28. Gerhart rushed 10 times for 32 yards and Robinson had nine carries for 25 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like they're pretty close to a 50-50 split. However, neither back has been able to find much running room behind that o-line. Both should be owned, but it's hard to start either of them right now.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson seeing added reps

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 21:29:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson more than doubled his previous high in snaps in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, and his emergence is cutting into the playing time of RB Toby Gerhart. Head coach Gus Bradley said this week that Robinson has earned more reps and will continue to get them going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson is not a fantasy factor just yet, but this situation is worth watching. If the former Michigan quarterback can grab the starting job from Gerhart at some point, but then he could emerge as a viable fantasy option during bye weeks.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson to see more action

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 06:22:40 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will start to receive more targets in the near future. He had eight carries for 33 yards in Week 3. "I think that Denard has really showed to us during the last three weeks that he's earned the opportunity to get more reps," head coach Gus Bradley said. "We made a conscious decision this past week to get him more opportunities and he did a pretty good job so that will continue."

Fantasy Tip: Toby Gerhart has been dogged by the team's propensity to fall behind early and abandon the run. This news is another hit to his value. Gerhart is a meager flex option, while Robinson is a watch list player right now.
