2024 Fantasy Outlook
Tyler Allgeier is a good running back, but it wasn't reasonable for Robinson to only see 214 carries to Allgeier's 186 carries last season. Atlanta team ownership presumably agreed, because previous head coach Arthur Smith was fired and the new coach Raheem Morris likely has an understanding that Robinson's inconsistent 2023 usage was a big reason Smith was fired. If Robinson's rushing workload increases then it could hold explosive results for his fantasy value, especially with Kirk Cousins arriving at quarterback. Robinson is already one of the league's better pass catchers at running back (86 targets last year) yet his efficiency numbers were badly dragged down by Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke. Robinson will likely improve on the 67.4 percent catch rate and 5.8 yards per target figure he had last year, and if that occurs at the same time as a rushing production surge then Robinson would have a clear path to finish the 2024 season not just as a fantasy RB1 in general, but maybe even the top fantasy back in the entire NFL.

Participating in OTAs

June 3, 2024
Robinson (ankle) participated in Monday's OTA, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
ANALYSIS
Robinson suffered an ankle injury during OTAs last month, but the running back's participation Monday indicates that it was a minor issue. As the 2024 season approaches, Robinson profiles as the lead option in an Atlanta backfield that also includes returnees Tyler Allgeier and Avery Williams, along with rookie sixth-rounder Jase McClellan (foot). In his first pro campaign, Robinson, who was the eighth overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, recorded 214 carries for 976 yards and four TDs as well as 58 catches for 487 yards and four receiving scores in 17 games. His fantasy upside in 2024 is largely tied to how much work he yields to Allgeier, who logged 186 carries last season.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Robinson is the consensus RB1 of the 2023 rookie class and arrives to the NFL with a fantasy-friendly skill set. He has a workhorse build at 215-plus pounds, and with a 4.46-second 40 Robinson has the speed to create big plays at a standout frequency. Not just that, but Robinson appears adept as a pass catcher and could do more as an NFL receiver than he did at Texas. While Robinson's single-season high for receptions at Texas was just 26, there's reason to think that in the NFL Robinson could be a 60-catch candidate annually. It's not often that a running back prospect projects for volume, efficiency and versatility to the extent that Robinson does -- and his status as the eighth overall pick further confirms that. He does have decent competition for carries in Atlanta, but within the confines of a run-heavy offense and with the possibility of Cordarrelle Patterson being a cap casualty this summer. While 2022 fifth-round pick Tyler Allgeier figures to retain some sort of role after running for 1,000 yards as a rookie, Robinson is on a different level of talent and shouldn't need long to establish himself as the lead back.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
More carries, less catches in 2024?
RBAtlanta Falcons
July 6, 2024
Josh Kendall of The Athletic posits that Robinson could see his usage on offense shift under a new system.
ANALYSIS
Robinson broke the rookie record last season with 1,463 scrimmage yards while adding eight touchdowns. He was heavily utilized in the passing game last year and finished with 58 catches. However, Kendall notes that offensive coordinator Zac Robinson and head coach Raheem Morris come from a Rams system that doesn't target the backfield heavily on offense, while the top running back sees a larger bulk of the carries. Even though Robinson was the top back for Atlanta last season with 214 carries, Tyler Allgeier still finished the year with 186 carries for 683 yards and four touchdowns.
