Josh Robinson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)While Robinson suggested that being in the Vikings' lineup in Week 1 is a possibility, such an outcome is hardly a lock. Per 1500espn.com, the cornerback can return to the practice field at any point once he's medically cleared, but if that doesn't occur by the end of the preseason, Robinson could potentially be transferred to the Vikings' reserve PUP list.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Robinson, who is coming back from a fractured sternum he suffered late last season, graded as one of the 15 worst cornerbacks last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Nevertheless, Robinson was working as the third cornerback in spring practice and will likely get significant playing time in nickel situations. He'll likely play cornerback with with regular starter Captain Munnerlyn moving inside in the nickel. Robinson does posses outstanding speed (4.29 40-yard dash at the NFL combine), but his track record the past two seasons appears to give little hope for a dramatic improvement.

Robinson, a 2012 third-round draft pick has the speed ( 4.29 40-yard dash at the NFL combine) to be an impact member of the secondary. He could win a starting cornerback job early in the season if he can improve his coverage skils. He could also have larger IDP value in the short term if he wins a role in the return game.
