You know what I thought about last week? What's the difference between Robinson and the Leonard Fournette many were drafting in the third round prior to him getting cut? Robinson is the clear workhorse on this team, and we now know that Thompson isn't getting much work. So again, what's the difference? I'll be honest, I didn't like Fournette at his third-round price, but as a back-end RB2? Absolutely. Robinson has totaled 32 of the team's 34 running back carries and has averaged 5.1 yards per carry on them. With how well the receivers and Minshew are playing, he should continue to find holes. The Dolphins are clearly a team to run the ball against, as the weak running back units of the Patriots and Bills combined for 212 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries over the last two weeks. You'd have to go all the way back to Week 10 of last year to find the last time the Dolphins didn't allow at least 21 points to their opponent. When you combine that with the team-implied total of 23.8 points, and Robinson should have a good shot to score in this game. Consider him a stable low-end RB2.How happy was Allen to see Justin Herbert under center? He was targeted 10 times by the rookie, connecting on seven of them for 96 yards, while the rest of the receivers combined for just six targets. There was an episode of Hard Knocks this preseason where I watched Herbert go over to Allen and said something to the effect of, "I'm just here to get the ball to you, man. Consider me your assistant," or something like to that effect. It's clear he's a fan of Allen's game. The Panthers have Corn Elder covering the slot, a third-year cornerback who's seen just 10 career targets in his coverage. On those targets, he's allowed seven catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. When the Chargers aren't running the ball all over the Panthers, they should be targeting Allen over the middle of the field. Knowing Allen saw a 30.3 percent target share in Herbert's first start, you should feel confident starting him as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with a solid floor.

Robinson has averaged 16 carries per game and he had his first 100-yard game and first touchdown last week. He is a solid RB2 against a Dolphins team that has overachieved as the 8th ranked fantasy running back defense.The Panthers are 8th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen is a WR3 this week at home against a Panthers D that has played receivers tough, but has been terrible in almost all other respects.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Robinson has been fantastic this season and is coming off a dominant performance against the Tennessee Titans. He's now played himself into RB3 territory with the amount of touches he's seeing and his work on the field. Robinson should be considered a fine RB3/FLEX option this week against the Miami Dolphins defense.Allen bounced back in a big way last week and put together a solid performance with Herbert behind center. He saw 10 targets and was able to reel in 7 of them for 96 yards. While this is a fantastic matchup on paper for Allen, the Chargers may not need to throw much to win this game. That limits Allen's ceiling, but he's still a fine low-end WR2 option.
