The Jacksonville Jaguars close out their 2020 season on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, and will do so without their breakout performer of the year. Rookie running back James Robinson will miss the game due to his ankle injury. He missed last week’s game as well and finishes a stellar rookie season with 1,070 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns, to go along with 49 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns. The undrafted rookie won’t take home rookie the year honors, but he is certain to earn all-rookie honors.

Dare Ogunbowale is likely to get the start in his place. Last week, he rushed 14 times for 71 yards in Robinson’s absence. Devine Ozigbo and Craig Reynolds each got a carry behind Ogunbowale. Ozigbo had 11 offensive snaps and Reynolds had three.

The Jaguars face a Colts defense that ranks 13th in fantasy points allowed to running backs. Jacksonville has clinched the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft while Indianapolis needs a win to have a chance at a playoff berth.
