The good news is that Robinson saw his carries increase from 5 to 11 last week, but he still does not see enough touches to be more than a flex option on a terrible offense.Jacobs is still questionable for this week, making Drake a high-end flex option against a Dolphins team that is 29th against fantasy backs through 2 weeks.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
To quote Slinky from Toy Story 2 - I have a three-year-old son and this is the only movie we ever watch, cut me some slack - "I've got some good news and I've got some bad news." James Robinson dominated the carry share in week two after seeing only five carries in week one. He ran the ball 11 times in week two as compared to Carlos Hyde's two rush attempts, so this is good news for fantasy managers that spent a higher pick on Robinson. The bad news is that it didn't amount to much and he finished as the RB29 on the week. Robinson should continue to see the majority of the touches in this offense moving forward, but if the offense is going to struggle this much, it's not going to equate to a ton of fantasy production. Robinson can be viewed as a high-end RB3 this week in a tough matchup against the Arizona Cardinals that ranks 6th in Total DVOA.With Josh Jacobs listed as "very questionable" by Jon Gruden for this upcoming matchup, it seems like we're going to see the duo of Kenyan Drake and Barber out there again for the Raiders. Drake certainly has not been efficient on the ground this year so far and that's evidenced by his 1.5 YPC on 13 rush attempts. However, he's at least providing a safe floor for fantasy managers with his involvement in the receiving game. He now has 10 receptions for 105 yards on the season and he has some value in Full PPR formats because of it. With that being said, he's still not worth viewing as anything more than a mid-range RB3 in that format. There are other options you can turn to that carry more upside than Drake in this offense.
