Jaguars | Denard Robinson could start Week 1

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:02:31 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson might be the Jaguars' starting running back to start the season, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Yeldon should start eventually, but Robinson has played well this season and has looked more ready for real game action. Robinson has some sleeper potential if he starts enough games. Yeldon is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart optimistic heading into season

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:29:20 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart and the team are optimistic about his 2015 season after struggling mightily as the main back in his first season in Jacksonville in 2014. The Jaguars drafted RB T.J. Yeldon this year and he appears to be the feature back sooner than later, but the team hasn't given up on a role for Gerhart. General manager David Caldwell said Gerhart looks quicker and faster than ever before this year. The Jaguars think new offensive coordinator Greg Olson's offense fits Gerhart's strengths better and will allow him to hit holes quicker. So far in camp, Gerhart has caught the ball consistently and broken off some nice runs in drills. Gerhart could be productive as a receiver, but Yeldon and Gerhart could share carries with RB Denard Robinson.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart probably doesn't have any business being owned in traditional leagues and certainly not in 10-team leagues, but he could earn a bigger role depending on how Yeldon pans out in his rookie season. If you do own Gerhart, it should come as a late-round handcuff to Yeldon.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson will have new role

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:41:52 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson had a chance as an every-down back last season, but with RB T.J. Yeldon in the fold Robinson is only expected to sub in for certain situations. He might also win the kickoff return role, too.

Fantasy Tip: Shoelace emerged as a viable RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues last season, but he will likely need an injury or two like last season to see a significant amount of touches. On draft day, it's best to stay away.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson to return kicks

Thu, 14 May 2015 13:22:08 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will return kicks in 2015, according to general manager David Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: It's started to sound like Robinson will play more of a change of pace role for the Jaguars this season behind Toby Gerhart and T.J. Yeldon. He'll have minimal fantasy value if this comes to fruition.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson working on pass catching

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 18:34:58 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson said he has been working on his pass-catching skills in the offseason, lining up as a receiver and running routes and practicing flares out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: If Robinson can become a reliable pass-catcher out of the backfield, it will enhance his value even further. For now, consider him a low-end RB2, but that could chance depending on how Jacksonville addresses the running back position in the draft.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson fully healthy

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 06:41:34 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson said the foot injury he suffered during the season is completely healed and that he was cleared to do everything in February.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson will enter voluntary workouts as the No. 1 running back but things could change if the team selects a running back in the draft. Owners should monitor the Jaguars' running back situation to see who will be the starter next season. Robinson could be an option in middle rounds of fantasy drafts if he keeps the starting job.

Jaguars | GM not forgetting Denard Robinson

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 18:38:15 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson said he believes he should be the No. 1 running back in 2015, and general manager Dave Caldwell said he wouldn't forget about Robinson as he prepares for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Expect the Jaguars to take a running back in the draft, but what round they decide to do so will be a pretty good indicator of the confidence the team has in Robinson. For now, Robinson should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Jaguars | Bernard Pierce could face suspension

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:27:04 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce will face a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy with his DUI arrest this week. Pierce will be given a chance to compete for playing time with RBs Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson in 2015. Pierce has struggled in the NFL since his rookie season in 2012, and he's mainly been hampered by a list of injuries including back, ankle, knee, shoulder, thigh, toe and head ailments. Pierce has a chance to be part of a three-man rotation, especially if the Jaguars use Gerhart more as an H-back.

Fantasy Tip: After averaging 4.9 yards per carry his rookie year, Pierce has averaged just 2.9 and 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Behind an inexperienced offensive line and quarterback in a three-man rotation, he definitely shouldn't interest fantasy owners in standard leagues in 2015.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson has torn ligament

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 07:07:31 -0800

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) has a partially torn ligament in his foot, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Recovery time is six to eight weeks, but he should be ready for offseason work.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson showed flashes in his rookie season and will be a RB2 or RB3 option in next year's drafts.

Jaguars | Denard Robinson to IR

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:12:37 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) was placed on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Storm Johnson ($3,000; 6.0% of your cap) will get an extended look against a poor Tennessee Titans run defense. He's an excellent buy-low flyer this week on FantasyScore.
