J-Rob's usage had fantasy managers scrambling in Weeks 1-2, but he's averaged just shy of 20 touches per game across his last three while finishing as a top-9 option in every game. Expect big numbers against Miami in Sunday's London matchup. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
During the postgame press conference after the Jaguars' week five loss to the Titans, Urban Meyer was asked about the decision to give Carlos Hyde the ball on a crucial 4th & 1 play near the goal-line rather than using Lawrence or Robinson. He said, "I don't micromanage who's in the game." While Robinson has been utterly fantastic for fantasy managers over the past few weeks, he's always going to have a cap on his fantasy ceiling with Meyer at the helm. If Robinson is in on that play - Hyde lost several yards on the attempt, FYI - the Jaguars most likely cash in and make the game competitive. Instead, Robinson is pulled for Hyde and he has to watch the veteran RB fail to convert a crucial play. While there's room to have a conversation about what Robinson's ceiling could be for fantasy football if he didn't have Meyer as his head coach, it's still important to recognize what he's doing on the field. He is now on pace for 228 rush attempts, 1,315 rushing yards, and 13.6 touchdowns on the ground. Additionally, he's set to add 48 receptions for 300 yards through the air as well. These are top-tier numbers at the RB position for fantasy football and there's virtually no matchup where we should be concerned about playing the second-year RB moving forward. In week six against Miami, he can be viewed as a low-end RB1. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Thielen and Justin Jefferson both missed practice Wednesday, Thielen with a foot injury, Jefferson with an ankle injury. It might not be a bad idea to leave Thielen on your bench this week even if the foot issue is minor. He faces a Carolina defense that's been tough against the pass. Thielen has been held to 50 receiving yards or fewer in four straight games, and he's averaging just 1.34 yards per route run, almost a full yard lower than Jefferson (2.33). Thielen is ranked WR31 this week and even that feels generous. He'll slide further if there are any questions whatsoever about his medical outlook later in the week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Robinson has been a Top-10 fantasy back each of the last three weeks and he should feast on a Dolphins D that is 32nd against fantasy backs.Thielen has tailed off in his last two games with just 5 receptions for 86 yards. He is a boom / bust WR3 on the road against a Panthers team that is 5th against fantasy wide receivers.
