Brian Robinson Jr.
RB - WAS
Brian Robinson Jr. took six carries for 26 yards and a touchdown. He also caught both of his targets for 15 yards.
After fellow RB Antonio Gibson fumbled in the first quarter, Robinson stepped in with the first team and made the most of his opportunities. His touchdown run came with the first unit which is a very good sign for the rookie out of Alabama. He also flashed pass-catching potential out of the backfield, showing he can be used as needed this season. Gibson is still likely the lead back in Washington, and J.D. McKissic is an excellent third-down back. If Robinson does carve out the goal line work for the Commanders in 2022, he could be worth a roster spot. As it stands he is a flyer in most formats as a member of a timeshare with Gibson and McKissic.
Commanders rookie RB Brian Robinson Jr. has been running with the first team in camp.
Robinson, a third-round pick in this year's draft, has had a nice off-season so far and has been impressive to the coaching staff. He projects to see some work on the goal line, but with the way it's going, he may see the bulk of the carries between the tackles for this offense. The rookie could be an interesting value pick for fantasy this season if he can keep up this pace.
