News: 2 days agoRobinson rushed 21 times for 96 yards and secured both targets for 15 yards in the Commanders' 20-20 tie with the Giants on Sunday. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by Washington.
Spin: The rookie once again helmed the backfield, out-carrying Antonio Gibson by a 12-tote margin while also tying his teammate with a pair of receptions, albeit on two fewer targets. Robinson's long run went for a modest 16 yards, so it was a grind-it-out type of effort for the Alabama product. Robinson now has 201 rushing yards on 39 carries in the last two games alone, seemingly affording him an unquestioned lead-back role going into the team's Week 14 bye.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Robinson was selected by Washington in the third round of April's draft. Robinson is a huge power back, who ranked at or near the top of this year's rookie class in weight (225 pounds), hand size and wingspan. He was used sparingly during his first three seasons at Alabama, but emerged as lead back in 2021, posting a 271-1,343-14 rushing line in 14 games, adding 35-296-2 as a receiver. Robinson has sufficient speed for his size and his collegiate elusiveness and tackle breaking numbers were both strong. Robinson seemed to pass Antonio Gibson on the depth chart during Training Camp, but a gunshot wound will cost him at least four weeks of the regular season. Stash Robinson on your bench or IR, if possible, as it's possible he'll be an RB2/flex option later this season.
