James Robinson
22-Year-Old Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
It initially appeared Robinson, an undrafted rookie out of FCS Illinois State, was likely to start his pro career on the Jacksonville practice squad. Instead, he's listed atop the depth chart at running back after the team waived Leonard Fournette at the end of August. The Jaguars widely have been expected to utilize a backfield committee, but it could be just Robinson and passing-down specialist Chris Thompson getting work at the start of the season, considering Devine Ozigbo is dealing with a hamstring injury and will miss at least a few weeks after being placed on IR.

September 13, 2020
Robinson carried the ball 16 times for 62 yards in the team's Week 1 contest against the Colts. He also added one reception for 28 yards.
ANALYSIS
Robinson was clearly atop the depth chart, as no other running back tallied a carry. While largely unspectacular, Robinson picked up chunk yardage early in the game. His efficiency waned as the contest moved on, though he managed to total 90 yards on 17 combined touches. With the Jacksonville depth chart still murky behind Robinson, he should in line for plenty of touches once again in Week 2 against the Titans.
