News: 5 days agoRobinson rushed 18 times for 53 yards and caught three of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.
Spin: Robinson had just six rushing yards on eight first-half carries but found more running room in the second half as New York's defense wore down. Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson combined for 37 yards on 13 rushing attempts, so Robinson continues to face competition for touches despite being the most effective running back in the Falcons' run-heavy offense. Nonetheless, Robinson has averaged 18.7 rushing attempts over the past three games and topped 50 rushing yards in five consecutive games. He should remain the top option in Atlanta's busy backfield in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Robinson was selected in the first round of April's draft. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Texas product is easily the class of the 2023 rookie RB class, with the size, speed (4.46 40-yard dash) and skill set to be a three-down superstar in the pros. Robinson's collegiate rushing efficiency was elite, as he posted a 4.1 YAC (fourth in this year's rookie class) and 3.0 forced missed tackle rate (first) during 31 games. He's also a capable receiver, having posted a 60-805-8 line in his career, which included a class best YPR (13.4) and YPT (9.8). All six RBs drafted in the top 10 since 2011 have finished their rookie season top 15 in fantasy PPG (three finished top five), which only adds to Robinson's 2023 appeal. He's a no-brainer top pick in 2023 rookie drafts and a strong RB1 with elite upside in season-long formats.
