Sleepers and Busts
James Robinson came out of nowhere and took over the Jaguars starting RB gig. He's got some new teammates who could affect his numbers in 2021. RB Travis Etienne was drafted in the 1st round. He's more of a change of pace back, but Etienne has some serious juice. Also new is Etienne's Clemson teammate, QB Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence is one of the most heralded QB prospects to come out since Andrew Luck. Finally, Tim Tebow joins the club as a TE. The reason I bring up Lawrence and Tebow is both could vulture TDs from Robinson down near the goal line. Tebow in particular could run a wildcat offense. That would kill Robinson's value if he loses those TDs. The pros are the Jaguars offense should finally have some sizzle in it. But that same sizzle could hurt Robinson's TD totals if things don't go his way. It all depends on his price tag on draft day. If you can get Robinson cheap, by all means take a shot. Just don't overpay. There are some storm clouds on the horizon in Florida.

Fantasy managers are in a bit of quandary when it comes to what to do with James Robinson. He smashed every expectation set for him last season and was a huge reason why many fantasy players were in their championships. However, the Jaguars turned over the entire front office and coaching staff that brought Robinson in. Additionally, the new coaching staff selected an explosive rookie in the first round, which doesn't look good for the second-year RB. With that being said, Robinson is not going to be completely relegated to the bench now. Etienne's role for this offense is going to be flexible, which means that we could see a lot of 2RB sets from this offense this season. It's just that Etienne is simply going to be receiving the clear majority of the touches in this case. Robinson still has value as a depth piece RB for your roster, but he most likely can't be relied on as anything more than a FLEX play week in and week out. My Very Early Projection: 102-469-4 rushing & 51-379-2 receiving.Oh man, what an absolute mess of a situation here in Houston right now. Deshaun Watson seems intent on never playing another down for this team, which means that we're going to see one of Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, or Jeff Driskel at QB in 2021. That's automatically a significant downgrade for this offense and it carries a trickle effect to every position group. On top of that, the RB room is extremely crowded and none of the names are really ones that should get you excited. At the time of writing, the Texans have Johnson, Mark Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, Rex Burkhead, Dontrell Hilliard, Buddy Howell, and Scottie Phillips all on this depth chart. If Johnson was essentially the lone back again this season, he might be worth drafting in fantasy drafts. However, with his age and the state of the offense around him, it's probably best to let someone else try to make it work with the veteran RB. My Very Early Projection: 163-669-4 rushing & 45-383-1 receiving.

Hyde isn't the worst addition, but the risk of a true GL vulture now lingers, and Hyde has history w/ Urban.Phillip Lindsay + Ingram + No QB + Gross overall offense = no, thanks.
Derek Lofland

 Johnson's value is going to depend on whether the Texans repair their relationship with DeShaun Watson or find a suitable replacement. Johnson is in the last year of his deal and is probably no better than a low-end RB3.
