News: 4 days agoRobinson rushed 10 times for 70 yards and wasn't targeted in the Commanders' 37-3 loss to the Bills on Sunday.
Spin: Robinson was outstanding on a per-touch basis, but game script and his lack of targets capped his overall production. The second-year back has looked appreciably more explosive early this season after playing a shortened rookie campaign due to a leg injury, and prior to Sunday, he'd drawn five targets over the first two games. Robinson and the Commanders have another unenviable matchup when they face the Eagles on the road in a Week 4 road contest.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Robinson is entering his second NFL season following a solid rookie campaign in which he piled up 214 touches in 12 games. It was an impressive comeback story after the third-round pick was shot in the leg just weeks prior to the season opener. Robinson is likely to split backfield duties with Antonio Gibson and we saw that dynamic in play for six full games last season. Robinson handled 50% of the carries (17.5 per game) and 5% of the targets (1.3), which allowed 11.9 fantasy PPG (24th among RBs). Robinson (6-2, 225 pounds) is one of the league's biggest backs and will be busy on early downs and at the goal line, but he's unlikely to be much of a factor as a receiver. As long as Gibson is in the mix, Robinson figures to max out as a flex option.
