James Robinson Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Tue, Aug 24th 2021, 3:43pm EDT

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.
