Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets: Brian Robinson

Brian Robinson (RB – WAS): 54% rostered

  • Next opponents: TEN, @CHI, GB
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $12
  • Budget-minded: $3

Analysis: We’re cheating here by including Robinson, whose rostership is above the 50% threshold. But Robinson is nearing a return, and Antonio Gibson’s weekly snap shares have been shrinking even before B-Rob comes back from the gunshot wounds he sustained in a robbery attempt. The reason our suggested bids are somewhat modest: The Washington offense appears to have run aground. Still, Robinson is certainly worth a bid if he’s still available and you need RB help.
