What to do with James Robinson in Week 13 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of James Robinson ahead of the Jaguars Week 13 matchup against the Vikings.

NFL: NOV 29 Browns at Jaguars

Sure, the Jacksonville Jaguars are a disaster, even by 2020 standards, but this team had established that precedent long before this horrible year turned everything into crap. But there is at least one bright star burning in the Jags’ lineup, a player who has the rare distinction of being a true must-start fantasy football option every week of the season, no matter how badly his team is expected to lose a game—running back James Robinson.

Fantasy Football analysis: Jaguars RB James Robinson

Robinson ran for 128 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries last week against the Browns. He added another 31 receiving yards for good measure. That was the third time in his last five games that Robinson has broken the 100-yard mark (and he had 99 yards in one of those outings). The Jags’ offense just doesn’t have many other options than to give Robinson the ball and let him work.

The Vikings have only given up six rushing scores this season to opposing running backs, and only one player has rushed for more than 100 yards since Week 3. Still, Robinson gets his touches no matter what, and he usually puts up good numbers to go with them.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start James Robinson.
