Pat Fitzmaurice

I know a few Robinson investors who were nervous that Urban Meyer was going to use Carlos Hyde more than he should, and that's sort of what happened here. Hyde seemed to be Urb's preferred early-down guy, logging nine carries to Robinson's five. Robinson was used in more of a passing-down role. He out-snapped Hyde 47-25. But was that simply because the game script was negative for the Jaguars throughout? Will it be closer to a 50/50 workload split if the Jags are in a close game and don't attempt 51 passes like they did in the blowout loss to the Texans? I now share the concerns of those Robinson investors. I have J-Rob squarely in RB3 territory this week against a tough Denver D. Hyde isn't far behind him, in high-end RB4 territory.In another Kyle Shanahan surprise, Aiyuk played fewer snaps than Trent Sherfield last week and didn't see a single target. Aiyuk had been dealing with a hamstring injury, but when asked about Aiyuk's non-involvement, Shanahan said, "If he wants to be out there every single play, he's got to be a lot better than the guy behind him." Um ... we could *probably* make a reasonable case that Aiyuk is a lot better than Trent Sherfield. I almost want to recommend Aiyuk in a prove-it spot here, but with the snap share uncertain and fairly tough matchup against veteran CB Darius Slay, you simply can't play him in fantasy this week.

Well, this isn't exactly what James Robinson's fantasy managers wanted to see. Robinson had only five carries in week one as opposed to Carlos Hyde's nine. The good news is that Robinson was targeted seven times and reeled in six of those catches...for three total yards. This offense in Jacksonville does not look like one that we really want to be investing in for fantasy purposes, but especially here in this backfield. Until we see Robinson receive the majority of the workload - like he deserves to - he can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end RB2.There were plenty of disappointing performances from players in week one, but the biggest one just might be Brandon Aiyuk. With no warning or rumors whatsoever, Aiyuk was barely involved in the game plan this past week for San Francisco and he only logged 26 total snaps on offense against Detroit. Kyle Shanahan mentioned after the game that Trent Sherfield's emergence in the pre-season and Aiyuk's recovery from a hamstring played a role in his limited availability, but that's still not something fantasy managers want to endure. Moving forward, we can't trust Aiyuk in our starting lineups as anything more than a FLEX play until we see him get back to receiving the majority of the snaps.

Carlos Hyde actually had more carries (9) in the opener, than Robinson had with (5). Robinson is a flex option in Week 2, but it is going to be hard to trust him if Hyde keeps seeing that much work in the backfield.
