Bijan Robinson Week 3 Outlook - Falcons at Lions

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Robinson saw his snap share climb in Week 2 to 72% (Week 1 63%). Robinson has averaged 19.5 touches and 127.5 total yards this season as the RB5 in fantasy. Robinson leads the NFL in percentage of runs, gaining at least five-plus yards. He's also seventh in missed tackles forced per attempt and 13th in yards after contact per attempt. Robinson has also been as good as advertised as a dynamic pass-game weapon. He's second in routes run per team dropback rate, first in Target share (22.0%), and tenth in yards per route run among running backs (minimum 15 routes). Detroit has been a tough run defense so far. They have the 13th-highest stuff rate, sixth-lowest yards after contact per attempt, and the fifth-lowest yards before contact per attempt allowed. Robinson's pass-game role will help him weather any efficiency woes this week. The Lions have deployed zone coverage on 60-66% of their corner's snaps this season. Against zone, Robinson leads the team with a 21.4% Target share. Week 3 Positional Value: Matchup proof RB1
