With a rookie quarterback under center for only his second NFL start, the Jacksonville Jaguars have officially made the rest of the 2020 season an exploratory year. However, there is one sure thing in the offensive mix there, running back James Robinson, who has been a delight for fantasy football teams since getting the starting job out of training camp this year.
Fantasy Football analysis: Jacksonville RB James Robinson
Robinson has 805 total yards and seven touchdowns so far this season. He’s been on a hot streak lately too. Last week against Houston, he had 99 rushing yards and a touchdown. The game before that he had 119 rushing yards, 18 receiving yards, and two touchdowns — one rushing, one receiving.
This week he catches a Packers defense that’s struggling against the run. They’ve allowed two different players to run for more than 100 yards against them, and another running back has topped 100 receiving yards in a single game against the Packers. They’ve also allowed 15 touchdowns to opposing running backs (11 rushing, four receiving). In other words, it’s a good week to have Robinson in your lineup.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start James Robinson.
