Jaguars' Denard Robinson ready for second try as kick returner


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is getting a shot at being the team's kick returner this offseason, a role he hasn't performed since early in his rookie season, but he's ready for the challenge, ESPN.com reports.

"Anything they ask me to do, I’m doing," Robinson said. "Now I feel more comfortable [returning kicks] than I was my rookie year."

General manager David Caldwell has said that while Robinson will get work returning kicks, he'd still have a significant role on offense. The running back hasn't dwelled on the comment.

"You just go out there and do yourself," Robinson said. "Do your thing and have fun and get better every day."

Robinson averaged 4.3 yards per carry on 135 rushes last season while racking up 582 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. The Jaguars are expected to use rookie T.J. Yeldon as their primary runner in 2015.


Report: Jaguars looking for help at RB this offseason


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) It appears Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart will have new role in 2015. 

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are planning to move Gerhart around on offense at H-back in addition to running back. This also means the Jaguars will be in the market for additional help at running back. 

Gerhart was plagued by injuries in 2014, which paved the way for Denard Robinson to assert himself as a potential starting running back down the road. Robinson, however, is injury prone himself, which goes back to his days as a standout quarterback in college at Michigan.

Robinson's 2014 season ended on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain.

Gerhart's season ended with just 326 yards and a patry 3.2 yards per carry average. Robinson emerged late in the year and ran for 582 yards and held a 4.3 yards per carry average.  


Jaguars unsure if Denard Robinson will be top option in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) When asked if Denard Robinson will be the top running back option in 2015, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said that his role remains to be seen, per the Florida Times-Union.

"He was a pleasant surprise for us [in 2014] after his first year," Bradley said. "He came back stronger and bigger and really shocked us. He had a couple of games in a row [of 100 yards rushing] where he did some really nice things for us and it was unfortunate he had the [foot] injury at the end. We're really pleased with his progress and we're hopeful that he takes the next step. Where that takes him in the rotation, that's yet to be seen. He's doing a great job coming back from his injury. The future is bright for him."

Bradley also indicated that he envisions Toby Gerhart having a place with the team on first and second downs, which could cut into Robinson's playing time. Robinson had his season cut short last year due to a foot sprain. He rushed for 582 yards and four touchdowns in seven starts for Jacksonville. It remains to be seen if he'll have the edge over Gerhart and Storm Johnson for playing time under new offensive coordinator Greg Olson next season.


Jaguars officially place RB Denard Robinson on IR with foot sprain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Jaguars have officially placed second-year running back Denard Robinson on injured-reserve with a foot sprain, the team announced Tuesday. 

Robinson, who had 582 rushing yards and four touchdowns this year, started seven games for Jacksonville.


Jaguars announce Week 15 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/14/2014) The Jaguars declared running back Denard Robinson (foot), cornerback Teddy Williams, cornerback Jeremy Harris, linebacker A.J. Edds, linebacker Khairi Fortt (hamstring), guard Tyler Shatley, and defensive end Andre Branch (groin) inactive for the game at Baltimore.

Jaguars' Andre Branch to miss Sunday's game against Ravens


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Jaguars defensive end Andre Branch will miss Sunday's game against the Ravens with a groin injury. It is Branch's sixth game out of action in the last seven for Jacksonville. 

Branch has three sacks on the season.

Linebacker Khairi Fortt and Denard Robinson are also out for Sunday's game. Robinson was declared out for the season earlier in the week with a mid foot sprain. 


Jaguars' Denard Robinson done for season with foot sprain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson will miss the rest of the season with a foot sprain, the team announced Wednesday. Robinson was seen at practice Wednesday wearing a walking boot. 

Robinson finishes the year with 582 yards rushing and four touchdowns. He also had 23 catches for 124 yards. 


Running back Denard Robinson in walking boot Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is dealing with a mid-foot sprain and has a walking boot on his right foot. 

Robinson has 582 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. His status for practice and Sunday's game is unknown. 


Denard Robinson running out of value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson has struggled mightily since coming back from the team's bye week, a trend that continued in Week 14 against the Texans.

Robinson, who had 154 yards and three touchdowns in the two games before the team's Week 11 bye, rushed for just 30 yards on 10 carries Sunday. It was his third game with fewer than 50 rushing yards in a row, as well as his third with 5 or fewer Fantasy points overall.

Denard has established himself as the best back on the Jaguars roster, but that doesn't mean Fantasy owners have to keep running him out there every week. In fact, given his struggles of late, you might want to keep him on the bench in Week 15, with a tough Ravens defense on the way.  


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson rushes for 30 yards Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson rushed for a team-high 30 yards on 10 carries during a 27-13 loss Week 14 vs. Houston. He added no catches but was targeted twice.

The Jaguars are back in action Week 15 at Baltimore.


Bradley: Jaguars RB Denard Robinson needs to improve blocking


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Friday that running back Denard Robinson still has to work on his pass-blocking skills, something that Robinson also admitted, the Florida Times-Union reports.

"I think the area he needs to continually improve on is protection," Bradley said. "That’s an area he needs to work on. He’s getting better."

"I want to finish the season strong and get myself better and make sure they trust me," Robinson added.

Bradley acknowledged that other teams have been putting eight men in the box to limit Robinson, who got to run out of the Wildcat formation for the first time this season in Week 13, picking up 16 and five yards on two Wildcat runs.


Jaguars RB Denard Robinson rushes for 44 yards in Week 13 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson rushed for 44 yards on 11 carries during a 25-24 win Week 13 vs. N.Y. Giants. His longest rush went for 17 yards, and he added three catches for 10 yards.

Robinson has finished with less than 50 rushing yards in two straight games. He also doesn't have a rushing touchdown in his last two games.

The Jaguars are back in action Week 14 vs. Houston.


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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
