James Robinson put together another RB1 performance in Week 3: 20 touches for 116 yards and 1 TD (58% snap share, 53% route participation). He's strung together three straight top-8 finishes in half-point scoring with back-to-back 20-plus touch workloads.

Fantasy managers should expect the production for Robinson to continue on the ground versus the Philadelphia defense, who is more vulnerable versus the run than the pass. Their defense ranks 29th in run defense EPA. Admittedly, it is a slightly inflated number due to D'Andre Swift's massive Week 1, so the matchup is more neutral than a "smash spot" for JRob. Besides, fantasy points for RBs are driven by volume and that is what Robinson has been getting the last two weeks.

But because the route participation continues to favor Robinson over Etienne (56% to 35%), it's tough to start Etienne as an RB2 until he
