Naturally, a team that’s turning to Mike Glennon as its starting quarterback is a mostly hopeless operation, especially when it comes to fantasy football. However, there is one player still worth your time on the Jaguars, running back James Robinson.

Fantasy Football analysis: Jaguars RB James Robinson

Robinson had 73 yards on 17 carries last week against the Steelers, adding another 21 yards on two catches. He had 109 rushing yards the week before that against Green Bay. No matter how overmatched the Jaguars are, they can’t help but feed Robinson the rock; he’s their only reliable option on offense.

The Browns defense hasn’t given up a rushing touchdown since Week 6, but running backs are still having some success in fantasy scoring against them. Josh Jacobs had 129 yards on 31 carries back in Week 8. The Jags offense limits Robinson’s ceiling, but he’s still a solid RB2 this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start James Robinson.
