Fantasy managers were in a bit of quandary when it comes to what to do with James Robinson, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore after the Travis Etienne injury. Robinson is now the main option in this backfield and he's going to see all the work he can handle. While the offense isn't going to be a top-10 scoring offense in 2021, it's an upgrade over what Robinson's situation was last year. He's now a high-end/mid-range RB2 after Etienne's departure and he should be viewed as a value in drafts.Fantasy managers were feeling pretty good about Melvin Gordon heading into 2021 after Phillip Lindsay's departure, but that all came quickly crashing back down with the drafting of Javonte Williams. This season, it's likely that Gordon is still the lead back, but Williams is certainly going to see some work. This situation could end up being very similar to Baltimore's from last year with Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins, which doesn't exactly bode well for Gordon's season-long outlook. In my opinion, drafting Gordon as anything more than a low-end RB2 is a recipe for disaster. My Very Early Projection: 200-960-6 rushing & 27-174-1 receiving.

Rookie Etienne's ankle injury puts J-Rob back in similar position as 2020 breakout, with exception of backup C. Hyde stealing some between the tackles work

Travis Etienne was placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury (foot). His season is over. It sounds like Urban Meyer sees this is as a RBBC with James Robinson and Carlos Hyde as a one-two punch. Keep in mind, the Jaguars offensive line looked abysmal vs the Saints. Stay tuned. If you can get Robinson at a reasonable price, by all means take a shot. Just don't overpay. This is a different coaching staff than the one the Jaguars had last year in which Robinson was a bell cow RB. There are some storm clouds on the horizon in Florida.Gordon's days in Denver seem to be numbered. The old regime signed him in free agency. They're gone now. The Broncos drafted Javonte Williams. At best Gordon is in a RBBC on a shaky offense. The best thing that could happened would be him getting traded or cut and going to a better team where he could be a three down RB once again. If that doesn't happen, I don't see much upside here. Avoid

After it was revealed that Travis Etienne will miss the entire season, J-Rob is firmly back in the RB2 conversation. He came out of nowhere last season to roll for over 1,500 scrimmage yards on 289 touches (49 receptions), 10 total TDs, and an RB7 finish. With the backfield seemingly all to himself yet again, Robinson should be drafted as a high-end RB2 with top-10 upside.

With the recent injury to Travis Etienne, James Robinson moves back into a solid workload. He'll have the volume in this offense while ceding some passing down plays to Laviska Shenault. Fantasy managers should expect 15-18 carries per week with a few targets sprinkled in. He moves up into volume-based RB2 territory.

8/24 Update - ETN suffered a lisfranc injury, and is out for the year. Another season of JRob Workhorse duties in a run-obsessed scheme -- Hyde will be annoyingly involved, but should be ~65% of the touches.Update - the Broncos TRADED UP to get Javonte Williams, and MGIII is on his last year. Williams will take over this backfield sooner than later, and Shurmur prefers a workhorse so MGIII might be meaningless by 2021's end

When Travie Etienne was healthy, Robinson's value had a hard cap on it, especially under the new regime in Jacksonville. But with Etienne now lost for the season, Robinson's value shoots up into solid RB2 range. While Robinson was on the field last year, the Jaguars running backs combined for 332 touches. Robinson accounted for 289 of them, or 87.0 percent, a number that doesn't really exist in today's NFL. He averaged 4.46 yards per carry, 5.73 yards per target, and scored 10 total touchdowns, which is solid, though nothing special. Enter Urban Meyer, who said they wanted to add depth/competition at the running back position, which they did with Etienne and Carlos Hyde. But with only Hyde left to siphon off touches, expect a big workload for Robinson again, enough to make him a solid starter.When the Broncos signed Gordon to a two-year, $16 million contract, you had to assume they were going to use him in a big role. That's not quite what happened, as they continually wanted to involve Phillip Lindsay. After letting him walk in free agency, they snagged Mike Boone, which was a downgrade from Lindsay. Okay... but that wasn't it. They drafted Javonte Williams at the top of the second round, a running back who'll certainly compete for touches immediately. Gordon isn't going to simply go away making the money he is, but he's also not likely going to get the 16.5 touches per game he was in 2020. There's also a possible suspension coming Gordon's way for a DUI incident last year, which needs to be factored into his fantasy stock. He's not someone you should be relying on for anything more than RB3/flex production.

Travis Etienne is out for the season, which makes Robinson a solid RB2 with RB1 upside if he can duplicate his solid rookie season.Gordon had a solid year with 182.4 considering all the injuries and bad quarterback play the Broncos had this year. Gordon is going to lose touches to Javonte Williams, but Gordon should still be a flex option.

 Gordon will most likely dominate the receptions, two-minute offense, and goaline touches at RB for the first half of the season. When Gordon starts to break-down Javonte Williams should seamlessly start to take-over.
