Fantasy managers are in a bit of quandary when it comes to what to do with James Robinson. He smashed every expectation set for him last season and was a huge reason why many fantasy players were in their championships. However, the Jaguars turned over the entire front office and coaching staff that brought Robinson in. Additionally, the new coaching staff selected an explosive rookie in the first round, which doesn't look good for the second-year RB. With that being said, Robinson is not going to be completely relegated to the bench now. Etienne's role for this offense is going to be flexible, which means that we could see a lot of 2RB sets from this offense this season. It's just that Etienne is simply going to be receiving the clear majority of the touches in this case. Robinson still has value as a depth piece RB for your roster, but he most likely can't be relied on as anything more than a FLEX play week in and week out. My Very Early Projection: 102-469-4 rushing & 51-379-2 receiving.

James Robinson likely the 'hammer' of the offense per Jaguars' beat writer

Per Jaguars' beat writer John Shipley, second-year RB James Robinson "will be the hammer" of the offense and could stay on the field for extended drives.

Fantasy Impact

For what it's worth, despite not being a player selected by new head coach Urban Meyer, he had this to say about the second-year back, "James Robinson is one of my favorite guys. I can’t name a harder worker right now on our team, and that started in January all the way through June now. So, I love that guy." From a fantasy perspective, the issue isn't whether or not Robinson is going to play on early downs or even see 15 carries per game. If it were up to the coaching staff, history suggests Urban Meyer and Darrell Bevell both want to run the football. The issue is how many targets Robinson sees with Travis Etienne now in town and if veteran running back Carlos Hyde will steal any valuable goal-line touches. While it's possible Robinson operates as the primary back a majority of the time, his fantasy value could be severely limited with Etienne taking on the passing-down work and Hyde siphoning some valuable touches throughout the game and down at the goal-line. Robinson should be considered a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 this season, just realize he could lose work as the season progresses depending on how quickly Etienne picks up the offense.
