James Robinson Rest of Season Fantasy Outlook as Jaguars Workhorse RB

Workhorse volume. Goal-line work. Involvement in the passing game. And, looking good doing it…

I’m sorry, but after ripping off 30.9 PPR fantasy points against the Dolphins in week 3, we have to have this conversation. James Robinson is flirting with fantasy RB1 territory.

J-Rob has made his case for why Ryquell Armstead and Devine Ozigbo can watch from the sideline rather than their couch moving forward, as Robinson continues to handle everything he’s been asked to already. On this touchdown, the Illinois State product showed off his vision and ability to change direction fast enough for the pro game.

Couple that with the passing game chops he displayed against Miami, leading the team with 83 yards on six receptions.

“I think as an offense, the checkdowns are always an option for a quarterback,” Robinson said. “[Minshew] didn’t find anyone open, so the checkdown was there and he made the play. I think it wasn’t really a shift into that, just him making a great pass.”

and…wait…wasn’t that Chris Thompson‘s forte? Where’d he go?

Oh, there he is…

Note that Tolentino says Robinson’s “ability to block” is another factor earning him more snaps. He may be the complete package.

Through three weeks, the undrafted rookie has been an excellent find for the Jaguars, proving the staff saw something during training camp that allowed the team to part ways with the former fourth overall pick, Leonard Fournette.

Robinson has totaled 339 total yards, which is the most by an undrafted player through his first three games.

Speaking of Fournette, Robinson tied Fournette’s 2019 total touchdown output in only three games and he joined Fournette as the only players in Jaguars’ history with over 150 rushing yards and two-plus touchdowns in his first three games of his career.

But how does every NFL team just look over a talent like that, round after round after round during the draft? I don’t know, but it happens.

Arian Foster. Priest Holmes… James Robinson?

Yes, I’m very sorry, but we have to start having that conversation. J-Rob just might be able to hang with other great undrafted running backs like Holmes and Foster.

If you didn’t pay attention before, maybe you will now.

Expect The Wolf to boost Robinson up his 2020 Rest of Season Fantasy Big Board, where he’s currently ranked RB24.
