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.


Is there anything worthwhile in the Jaguars backfield?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Jaguars used three running backs in Week 5 against the Steelers, as the team continues to search in vain for some kind of spark out of the backfield. Can anything be salvaged from the combination of Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson or Storm Johnson?

Gerhart has been an unmitigated disaster since signing with the Jaguars as a free agent, which has opened a chance for the unheralded guys down the depth chart to earn playing time. Unfortunately, Robinson continues to show little life, as he rushed for just 6 yards on three carries, with -1 receiving yards as well. At this point, neither looks like the answer.

Someone Fantasy owners might want to keep an eye on over the next few weeks is rookie seventh-round pick Storm Johnson. Johnson was Blake Bortles' teammate at the University of Central Florida, and looked alive in his first chance to play Sunday. He carried the ball just four times for a team-high 27 yards, before leaving due to an ankle injury. That ankle injury might be what derails his chance to usurp the role, though it remains to be seen if it is a significant issue.

At this point, Johnson is only an intruiging option by default; he isn't Gerhart or Robinson. He also has not proved anything, and might be just as useless as the two guys who have failed before him. However, with how valuable any running back who gets playing time is he is at least worth monitoring, to see how he might figure into the team's plans.


Denard Robinson still a sleeper, but worth checking out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson has not made much of an impact since being given a larger role in the offense, but he might be someone worth taking a flier on in Fantasy anyways.

The Jaguars have relied on Toby Gerhart less and less as the season has gone on, and for good reason. He is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry through four games, with a long run of just 10 yards. And, while Robinson has not been much better (3.3 yards per carry), the team appears willing to give him a bigger role, if only for a change of pace.

Robinson might have some extra value long term in PPR leagues, even if he ultimately never overtakes Gerhart for the starting job. Robinson has been targeted seven times in 70 offensive snaps, compared to seven targets for Gerhart in 133 snaps.

Clearly, the Jaguars are not thrilled with their investment in Gerhart this offseason, so Robinson is going to get more chances to cut into his playing time if he can show a pulse. At this point, Robinson is a long way from starting, but in deeper leagues, he might have some upside.


Prioritizing running backs on the waiver wire


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The running back position has been a tough one to pin down for Fantasy owners this season, with so many big names struggling -- if they aren't out of action entirely. With this in mind, it is more important than ever to hit on your waiver-wire pickups. Jamey Eisenberg's top waiver-wire targets at the running back position are as follows:

The Vikings' Jerick McKinnon, The Ravens' Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, the Browns' Isaiah Crowell and the Texans' Alfred Blue. Additionally, Andre Williams of the Giants, Darrin Reaves of the Panthers and Denard Robinson of the Jaguars are mentioned as possible options worth targeting.

If you need a roster spot, consider dropping Adrian Peterson, DeAngelo Williams and Darren McFadden this week. 


Denard Robinson to get more opportunities moving forward


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told reporters in his Monday press conference that running back Denard Robinson should "obviously get more opportunities" moving forward, per the team's official website.

Robinson played a career-high 36 snaps in Week 4 against San Diego, totaling 25 yards on nine carries. He caught all three of his targets for 7 yards in a 33-14 defeat. He has 20 carries for 66 yards on the year.


Toby Gerhart not fallen behind Denard Robinson on depth chart, coach says


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Although Jaguars running back Denard Robinson played a career-high 36 snaps in Week 4, head coach Gus Bradley told reporters that Toby Gerhart has not fallen behind the second-year player from Michigan on the depth chart, per ESPN on Monday.

"Just trying to utilize everybody’s strengths," Bradley said. "You see the receivers move around, too. We’re trying to utilize their strengths. That’s been kind of our philosophy."

Robinson's offensive snaps were one less than Gerhart (21) and Jordan Todman (16) combined. Gerhart also went to the bench for one drive after losing a fumble on his first carry. As expected. Robinson took a backseat to Gerhart in goal line carries on Sunday and only averaged 2.8 yards per attempt. Gerhart scored a touchdown but was not any better, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt on 10 carries.

Jaguars backup runners do little Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Jaguars backup running backs did little Week 4 against the Chargers.

Denard Robinson saw some early action, but couldn't capitalize on it. He finished with nine carries for 25 yards. He also caught three passes for 7 yards.

Jordan Todman received one carry, gaining 4 yards. He caught two passes, picking up 20 receiving yards. 

They'll take on the Steelers Week 5. 


Jaguars see some changes -- and success -- in backfield in Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has fallen flat on his face in his first three games as a feature back, and he started ceding playing time in Week 3 against the Colts.

Gerhart played 66 and 70 percent of the team's snaps in the first two games of the season, respectively, but that number dipped all the way to 50 percent Sunday. And, while Jordan Todman has served as the team's primary backup (21.1 percent of the snaps, first two games) it was converted college quarterback Denard Robinson who saw a step up in playing time in Week 3.

Robinson played 33 percent of the team's offensive snaps, after playing in just 11.4 percent in the first two games. And, though he did not have a high bar to clear, Robinson established new career-highs in carries (eight) and rushing yards (33) in the game.

The Jaguars gave Gerhart a three-year contract this offseason, but the early returns have not been promising; just ask any of Gerhart's Fantasy owners. Gerhart was drafted 41st overall on average this season, but might just be droppable at this point. Keep an eye on the team's playing time distribution, because Robinson might be an interesting sleeper if the team makes a change. 


Denard Robinson has earned more reps on offense


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday running back Denard Robinson has earned the opportunity for more reps on offense. Robinson led Jacksonville in rushing during a 44-17 loss Week 3 against the Colts with 33 yards on eight carries.

Who was Blake Bortles throwing to?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) The Jaguars made the inevitable move to put Blake Bortles in Sunday, and he should remain the team's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. What does that mean for the team's skill position players?

Bortles took over at halftime and led the team on three scoring drives in his first six times out. He showed a proclivity for big plays -- two touchdowns -- and big mistakes -- two interceptions -- and made full use of the team's weapons. He targeted eight players in the game, and it broke down like this:

Cecil Shorts: eight targets, five receptions, one touchdown (7 yards); Allen Hurns: three targets, one reception, one touchdown (63 yards). one interception; Allen Robinson: eight targets, five receptions, one interception; Jordan Todman: one target; Mickey Shuler: one target; Will Ta'ufo'ou: one target, one reception; Denard Robinson: one target; Toby Gerhart: one target, one reception


Jaguars backup runners contribute little Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Jaguars backup running backs didn't do much Week 3 against the Colts.

Denard Robinson actually led the team in rushing, but gained just 33 yards. He was targeted in the passing game one time, but failed to come up with the ball. Robinson received eight rushing attempts.

Jordan Todman got one carry, picking up 10 yards.

They'll look for more Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Jaguars backup RBs total little numbers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Playing behind Toby Gerhart, Jaguars running backs Denard Robinson (11 yards) and Jordan Todman (9 yards) totaled very little statistically, even when given shots to play when Gerhart was out with an ankle injury.

The Jaguars play at the Redskins in Week 2. 


Denard Robinson playing at 'confident, higher level'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said he believes running back Denard Robinson can be a threat out of the team's backfield in 2014. Robinson has been elevated to second-string on the team's unofficial depth chart at running back heading into Week 1 at Philadelphia.

"I hope so," Fisch said, per The Florida Times-Union. "My plan is for that to be the case. We're certainly expecting him to. His speed is outstanding. He's stronger and tougher, bigger and faster. All of that is really good. It's exciting to watch him improve from Year 1 to Year 2."

Robinson rushed for 94 yards on 21 carries in the preseason, which included a 23-yard touchdown.

"I think Denard is getting more confident, more comfortable with the ball and holding onto the football," Fisch said. "His ball security has improved. He's catching the ball better. With that, I think he's playing at a confident, higher level."


Jaguars list Denard Robinson as No. 2 RB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Jaguars released their unofficial depth chart for the season opener against the Eagles, and one of the bigger surprises was listing Denard Robinson as the backup running back to starter Toby Gerhart. Robinson is listed ahead of Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson on the depth chart.

Denard Robinson solid in relief duty in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson got much of the work in the second half of Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers, and put together a solid performance.

Robinson led the team with 36 rushing yards on seven attempts, including a 23-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He did not factor into the passing game.

 Robinson is likely to enter the season as a reserve running back. 


Competition for Jaguars' change-of-pace RB job?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch mentioned Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson as change-of-pace backs to work behind Toby Gerhart in Jacksonville this season, and he seemed to be leaning toward Todman. 

"Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs," Fisch said per the Florida Times-Union. "Jordan really intrigues us with his burst, speed and acceleration. ... I'm excited about Denard."

Fisch also mentioned rookie Storm Johnson but seemed to classify him as a backup to Gerhart. 

"Storm is going to run at the same speed as Toby and maybe a hair faster, but he's strong and really compact," Fisch said. "He has incredible vision and lower body strength."


Denard Robinson primed for 'significant' offensive role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Jaguars running back Denard Robinson dropped only one pass in nine OTAs and three days of minicamp, reports ESPN.com, which expects Robinson to have a much bigger role in 2014. Robinson is a dangerous open-field runner who will be a "significant part of the offense" if he continues to build on his impressive offseason, the report said.

Denard Robinson has shown improvement this offseason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell told USA Today that he's seen some development and improvement from running back Denard Robinson so far this offseason. Robinson is expected to help shoulder the rushing workload and be a receiver out of the backfield for the Jaguars this season. 

"He really had just limited use of his right hand last season," Caldwell said. " ... I told him the other day, 'I don't want to jinx you, but you haven't dropped a ball since we started OTAs.' He has excellent speed and ability to take it to the end zone from anywhere on the field."

Robinson's hand is fine now and he is focused on becoming a more dangerous player. Jaguars radio analyst and former player Jeff Lageman says Robinson has had "the best offseason of anyone."
