Chris Rodriguez Jr. (ankle) placed on IR

Chris Rodriguez Jr. was placed on IR on Thursday due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez had an MRI on his ankle earlier this week, and now the decision has been made to end his rookie campaign early. The sixth-round pick out of Kentucky saw action in 13 games during his first NFL season, rushing for 247 yards (4.8 Y/A) and two touchdowns on 51 carries.

Chris Rodriguez Jr. (ankle) undergoes MRI

Chris Rodriguez Jr. (ankle) had an MRI on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez injured his ankle during a career-best game Sunday, as the rookie rushed for 58 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. He was seen in a walking boot after the game and underwent an MRI on Tuesday. His status should be made more clear as the week progresses.

Chris Rodriguez Jr. scores twice in Week 16

Chris Rodriguez Jr. carried the ball 10 times for 58 yards and two touchdowns while adding a seven-yard reception in a 30-28 loss to the Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez was impressive in sliding into the lead role for the injured Brian Robinson Jr. (hamstring). The rookie running back found the end zone on 12 and one-yard rushes, giving him the first two scores of his young NFL career. Robinson's status for Week 17 against the 49ers is still unclear, but it appears that Rodriguez will be a solid fantasy running back if the former is forced to miss another game.

Chris Rodriguez Jr. sees 10 carries in Week 15

Chris Rodriguez Jr. carried the ball 10 times for 35 yards in a 28-20 loss to the Rams in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez stepped into Brian Robinson's role with the latter missing the game with a hamstring injury. Rodriguez didn't do much with the opportunity, however, and was not targeted in the passing game. If Robinson's hamstring keeps him out another week, look for Rodriguez to lead the way against the Jets in Week 16.

Chris Rodriguez Jr. leads Commanders in rushing in Week 7

Chris Rodriguez Jr. ran for 31 yards on seven carries in the Commanders 14-7 loss against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez saw just one fewer carry than Brian Robinson and was more efficient. He still isn't a guarantee, but could be worth an add off the waiver wire in deeper leagues. Robinson should remain the lead back.
