Denard Robinson picks odd week to struggle


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) Though his Week 12 opponent, the Colts, had struggled against the run, having allowed the third-most yards per carry coming into the game, Jaguars running back Denard Robinson looked more like his predecessor against them, picking up 25 yards on 14 carries.

Meanwhile, his predecessor, Toby Gerhart, was inexplicably productive in limited chances, leading the team with 31 yards on four carries.

Granted, Gerhart's four carries were more or less his usual allotment since Robinson assumed the lead role, so there's no reason to think the Jaguars are having second thoughts about the distribution of carries. Still, given that Robinson had averaged 97.3 rushing yards in his previous four games, including 108 against a tough Dolphins run defense in Week 8, this performance wasn't what his Fantasy owners were expecting to see.

Chalk it up as just a bad day for Robinson and give him another chance Week 13 against a Giants defense that entered Week 12 ranked dead last against the run.


Denard Robinson takes a step back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) After rushing for 154 yards and three touchdowns over his previous two games, Jaguars running back Denard Robinson was shut down Sunday by the Colts. He gained 25 yards on 14 carries (1.8 ypc), lost a fumble and failed on his only goal-line attempt.

Robinson did catch four of five targets for 47 yards.

He'll face the Giants in Week 13.


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson scores twice in lopsided loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Jaguars emerging featured back Denard Robinson continued to establish himself Sunday despite a lopsided defeat to Dallas.

Robinson rushed for just 60 yards on 15 attempts, but he scored on a 32-yard jaunt around right end midway through the first quarter and added a meaningless 1-yard touchdown with just under two minutes remaining. He has 389 yards and two scores on the ground over the last four games combined. Robinson added two catches for 10 yards against the Cowboys.

He will try to keep up the good work in Week 12 when Jacksonville comes off its bye.


Denard Robinson looking to keep it up


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson has been a revelation in recent weeks, and will look to keep rolling in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

After the Jaguars running game spent the first six games of the season in neutral, Robinson finally got a chance and kicked it into overdrive three games ago, rushing for 329 yards on 5.8 yards per carry since. He has a chance to keep it going against a Cowboys team that has struggled against the run recently.

Each of the last two Cowboys opponents have had running backs total double digits in Fantasy points, with Andre Ellington's 18-point performance coming one week after Alfred Morris picked up 14 points against the Cowboys. They still rank in the middle of the pack in terms of Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, at 16.8 per game, but there cracks in the armor showing up.

With how well Robinson is running it, and how much work he is getting, Fantasy owners can't consider sitting him. And, against a defense that has struggled a bit recently, you have to like his chances for success in Week 10. 


Jaguars RB Robinson: I can be one of the best in the NFL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Emerging Jaguars featured back Denard Robinson has claimed he can be "one of the top backs in the league," per NFL.com.

He could be on his way. Robinson has 329 yards rushing on 57 carries for a 5.9 YPC average over the last three games. He has more yards on the ground than anyone in the NFL not named DeMarco Murray during that stretch. He has shown a combination of speed and toughness, as well as patience generally unseen in such an inexperienced back.

"Being patient running the ball has come naturally," he said. "I've always been patient and have known when to hit [the hole]."


Denard Robinson can't be stopped


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson continued his strong run in Week 9, as he racked up 90-plus yards for the third straight game in a 33-23 loss to the Bengals.

Robinson rushed for 94 yards on 17 carries, his third game with an average of 5.5 yards per carry or better. He also found the end zone for the second time on the season and added a pair of receptions for 10 yards, giving him 16 Fantasy points, his second-best career game.

Robinson has been one of the best running backs in the league over the last three weeks, and has done it against both good and bad defenses. He gets to face another subpar defensive squad in Week 10, with the Cowboys and their 5.2 yards per carry allowed mark on the schedule. At this point, Robinson has to be in your starting lineup every week.  


Denard Robinson eclipses 100 yards from scrimmage again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) For the third straight week, Jaguars running back Denard Robinson surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage. He rushed 17 times for 94 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 loss at Cincinnati, adding two catches for 10 yards.

Robinson averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored on a nifty 5-yard run in the fourth quarter, his second touchdown in the past three weeks. He got shaken up early in the game but returned on the next series.

Robinson plays the Cowboys in London in Week 10.


Time to the roll the dice on Denard Robinson?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/29/2014) Sitting Denard Robinson the week after his breakout 127-yard effort against the Browns was understandable. It was an outlier performance achieved with an especially favorable matchup, and there was some big talk about Toby Gerhart still playing a big role. But now, after back-to-back 100-yard games, taking a conservative approach with Robinson just seems kind of silly.

Especially since his matchup Week 9 at Cincinnati is, at least on paper, a favorable one. The Bengals rank 29th against the run, allowing 140.7 yards per game, and have given up the eighth-most Fantasy points per game to running backs. And as tough as the Jaguars defense has played in recent weeks, you don't have to worry so much about the Bengals running away with the game, compelling the Jaguars to throw every down.

Calling Robinson a must-start is taking it a bit far. Some people have enviable depth at the position. But in Week 9, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Robinson among their top 24 running backs, with Dave slotting him as high as 15th.


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson posts back-to-back 100-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson continued his recent success with another 100-yard performance in his team's Week 8 loss to Miami.

Robinson took a reverse for a gain of 41 yards on the third play of the game, his longest gain of the game. He took 14 handoffs for 108 yards, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. He caught one of two targets for 10 yards in a 27-13 defeat.

Robinson became the first Jacksonville back to post consecutive 100-yard games on the ground since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011. He'll look for his third straight 100-yard game Week 9 at Cincinnati.


Denard Robinson looking like a diamond in the rough


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) In the midst of yet another lost season, and with top pick Blake Bortles struggling mightily, running back Denard Robinson has at least emerged as a rare bright spot for the Jaguars.

Robinson rushed for 100 yards for the second straight game in Week 8 against the Dolphins, the first Jaguars running back to reach that mark in consecutive games since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011. Robinson rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries in Sunday's loss, giving him 235 yards on 40 carries over the last two weeks; all other Jaguars running backs have 220 yards in the entire season.

Robinson has taken a while to get acclimated to the NFL, but the converted quarterback looks like a diamond in the rough for the Jaguars' offense. Given his lack of a track record and the sorry state of the team around him, it is probably fair to question Robinson's viability as a consistent starting Fantasy option moving forward. Still, he is a starting running back and has shown more than enough over the last two weeks to make him at least a must-own Fantasy option. 


Denard Robinson still starting for Jaguars


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Despite the return of Toby Gerhart from a foot injury, Denard Robinson is still listed as the Jaguars' starter for Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Robinson is coming off a breakout performance in Week 7, when he rushed for 127 yards on 22 carries. He should see a bit of a smaller role, but we have little reason to think he will cede a majority of the work to Gerhart, who has been largely ineffective this season.

Robinson is by no means a must-start Fantasy option even after last week's success, with the Dolphins providing a pretty tough matchup. Still, he has some appeal as a low-end starting option Sunday, even with Gerhart back.


Denard Robinson looking more like a Week 8 sleeper


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) With the news Thursday that Week 7 breakout Denard Robinson will get the bulk of the carries Week 8 against Miami even with the return of Toby Gerhart from a sprained foot, Robinson goes from a shaky start in Fantasy to at least a decent one.

Working behind the same offensive line with the same supporting cast that has reduced Toby Gerhart, Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman to a combined 2.7 yards per carry this season, Robinson had 127 yards on 22 carries in Week 7. Granted, that was with an especially favorable matchup against the Browns, who rank 32nd against the run, and this is with a not so favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who rank 10th. But still, a running back with a big workload is a valuable thing.

Before that news, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard barely had Denard Robinson in their top 30 running backs for Week 8, but with it, he jumps to about 20th for me, ahead of Doug Martin, Tre Mason and Chris Ivory, among others.


Jaguars coach: Robinson featured in Week 8 over Gerhart


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Gus Bradley has announced that Week 7 breakout back Denard Robinson will receive the bulk of the carries for the Jaguars in Week 8 against Miami, per the Florida Times-Union. Toby Gerhart, who returns from injury with a 2.6 YPC average, will serve as his backup.

The former Michigan quarterback exploded for 127 yards on 22 carries and added three receptions Sunday against Cleveland. It marked his first double-figure attempt day in the NFL.

Gerhart appears set to play after missing two games with a foot sprain.


Healthy Gerhart could put squeeze on Jaguars RB Robinson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart appears on the verge of returning to game action after missing the last two weeks with a foot sprain. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

"He said he felt pretty good," Gus Bradley told the Florida Times-Union. "I think the last two weeks have been tough on him, but today he felt a lot better and felt like it was beneficial to have that time off."

Now it must be determined if he's still the featured back. He managed a 2.6 YPC average in 48 attempts before going down. Meanwhile, Denard Robinson emerged in Week 7 to rush for 127 yards on just 22 carries in the team's first victory of the season, a lopsided defeat of Cleveland.

"I think we'll continue to mix and match a little bit," said offensive coordinator Jeff Fisch. "I don't exactly how that will all play out yet."

The Jaguars host Miami on Sunday.


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Looking ahead for Denard Robinson


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is the hot name and will be the top option on waivers this week, but what should Fantasy owners expect from him moving forward?

Robinson seems likely to remain the team's top back moving forward, though coach Gus Bradley was seemingly noncommittal when asked if Toby Gerhart will cut into his playing time upon his return. Still, Robinson should continue to see a healthy workload, so the question is how much Fantasy owners can expect from him.

Even if Robinson is to be unleashed again in Week 8 against the Dolphins, he will go up against a team that has proven pretty adept at slowing down running backs this season. With the exception of Weeks 3 and 7, when Matt Forte, Knile Davis and Joe McKnight racked up a combined 57 points -- including 30 through the air, which hasn't been Robinson's strength -- Miami's defense has done a good job against opposing running backs. In the team's other four games, only one back has reached double digits in Fantasy scoring, when Shane Vereen had 12 back in Week 1.

Robinson found success in his breakout in Week 7, but that was against a Browns defense that had allowed five double digit Fantasy performances by running backs in their first five games. Fortunately, things get easier after that, with the slumping Bengals on the way in Week 9. Robinson should be a useful Fantasy option moving forward, even if he might struggle a bit in Week 8.  


Will Jaguars stick with Denard Robinson as feature back?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Coming off a career day Week 7 vs. Cleveland, you would assume the Jaguars would continue to turn to running back Denard Robinson following his 127-yard rushing performance Sunday.

However, coach Gus Bradley was vague about Robinson remaining the feature back, hinting the backfield situation could change once Toby Gerhart returns from a foot injury.

“Yeah, I think so," Bradley said when asked about Robinson being the feature running back, per The Florida Times-Union. "We’ll look at the film. He did a good job and we hope to get Toby back."


Denard Robinson the Jaguars running back to own


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) After serving as just a change-of-pace option for the first six weeks, Denard Robinson became the focal point of the Jaguars running game Week 7 against Cleveland, and based on how he performed in the role, he's a good bet to keep it going forward.

He ran 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown, with a long of only 20 yards. That's a good thing in this case. It means he didn't owe the majority of his yardage to a single play in which he happened to break free. He was just a consistent contributor out of the backfield.

That's more than anyone can say for Toby Gerhart, the team's intended starter at running back. Gerhart, who was sidelined for Week 7 with a foot injury, ran for fewer yards in five weeks of starting (123) than Robinson did in just this one. The Jaguars knew there had to be a better answer, even experimenting with rookie Storm Johnson, and may have finally found it in Robinson.

Injured or not, Gerhart is just a waste of a roster spot in Fantasy, and though Johnson has scored a touchdown in two straight games, his 2.3 yards per carry during that stretch shows he's no real threat to Robinson. The Jaguars really don't have anything to lose by giving the second-year player an extended look, so he should be a priority off the waiver wire this week.


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson enjoys career day in Week 7


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) It took Jaguars running back Denard Robinson less than one quarter Sunday against Cleveland to eclipse his previous single-game rushing record. By the time he was done, he owned the team's top mark since Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 177 yards in September 2012.

Robinson raced 14 yards up the middle on his first attempt and just kept racking up the yards until he finished with 127 on 22 carries. The highlight was an 8-yard run and sensational cut around left end that landed him in the end zone with six minutes remaining in the game to give his team a 17-6 lead.

With the featured back job likely his, Robinson will try to maintain his momentum against the visiting Dolphins in Week 8.


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson handed starting job Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The absence of injured Toby Gerhart has Denard Robinson set to start as the featured back for the Jaguars against Cleveland on Sunday.

Robinson is expected to share the bulk of the duties with Storm Johnson.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart a no-go for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) What was feared is now reality - Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has been ruled out for the Sunday game against Cleveland with a foot injury.

The setback continues a poor start to the season for Gerhart, who has been out of practice throughout the week after missing the game last Sunday at Tennessee. He has rushed for just 126 yards on 48 carries for a 2.6 average.

Gus Bradley has announced that the absence of Gerhart will result in Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson splitting the featured back duties with Jordan Todman playing on third downs. per the Florida Times-Union.


Denard Robinson gets eight touches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson ran five times for 22 yards (4.4 ypc) and caught all three of his targets for 14 yards in the loss at Tennessee. The 36 yards from scrimmage marked a season high for Robinson.

He'll play the Browns in Week 7.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart officially ruled out for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was unable to practice Friday and was officially ruled out for Week 6 at Tennessee, the team announced. Gerhart has been bothered by a foot issue since the start of the season. The team will likely turn to Storm Johnson, Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson on Sunday, per ESPN.

Speculating on Jaguars' backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Fantasy owners have little reason to view the Jaguars backfield optimistically, but you can't just ignore them, can you?

The Jaguars' running backs have combined for just 3.0 yards per carry on the season, with the majority going to the ineffective duo of Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson. At this point, the team might be willing to try anything to jumpstart the running game, which is why Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson saw bigger roles in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Todman actually saw the field more often than any other running back, but was used just once in the running game, on a carry that was negated by a penalty. Johnson played just 12 percent of the team's snaps, though that wasn't far off from Gerhart -- the starter -- who played 18 percent of the snaps. Robinson rounded out the group with 34 percent of the snaps played.

There is nobody in Jacksonville you should consider a starting option at this point. Heck, in 10-team leagues, there might not be anyone even worth owning here. However, in deeper leagues, there might be some value in speculating on Todman, Johnson and Robinson, just in case one of them shows signs of life. At this point, that's all it would take. 


Jaguars RBs combine for 42 rushing yards in Week 5 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Jaguars couldn't get much of a rushing attack going during a 17-9 loss Week 5 vs. Pittsburgh. 

Starting running back Toby Gerhart turned in another disappointing performance, rushing for 9 yards on four carries. He has just 123 rushing yards through five games.

Backup running back Denard Robinson wasn't much better Sunday, rushing for 6 yards on three carries. 

Surprisingly, the Jaguars leading rusher was rookie Storm Johnson, who received the first carries of his NFL career Sunday. He rushed for 27 yards on four carries.

Gerhart added one catch for 20 yards and Robinson had two catches for minus-1 yards. The Jaguars are back in action Week 6 at Tennessee.
