Kyle Yates

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.Latavius Murray has settled in nicely to his new home in Baltimore pretty quickly and he's making an impact for this roster as a complimentary piece to Ty'Son. He has found the end zone in back-to-back weeks, but his efficiency metrics aren't where they need to be yet with his typical volume for him to move into the FLEX conversation. In order for Murray to not hurt your starting lineup, he needs to find the end zone and that's not something that I'm comfortable rolling with on my fantasy rosters. Murray's still just a bench stash for me moving forward, although he could be pushed into the FLEX this week if you're in a pinch simply because of the matchup. If there's ever going to be a matchup that you feel comfortable with Murray being projected to find the end zone, it's this one.

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.
