Stellar all-around numbers Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-26

Robinson rushed 16 times for 91 yards and a touchdown and secured three of six target for 32 yards and another score in the Falcons' 24-15 win over the Saints on Sunday.

Robinson led the Falcons in rush attempts and rushing yards while also recording his third rushing touchdown and fifth score overall on a 10-yard run in the second quarter. He then added a a key 26-yard touchdown grab early in the fourth quarter, his third score through the air as well. The rookie now has back-to-back 90-plus-yard rushing tallies for the first time in his nascent career, which, when combined with the 38 total carries he's managed in that span, sends him into a Week 13 road matchup against the Jets with no shortage of momentum.

Tops century mark in tough loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-12

Robinson carried the ball 22 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 25-23 loss to the Cardinals.

It's the first time since Week 4 that the rookie RB has recorded over 100 scrimmage yards, and his five-yard score in the second quarter was only his second rushing TD of the season and fourth trip to the end zone overall. Robinson's usage has been strangely erratic and not in line with the draft capital used to land him as the eighth overall pick in 2023, but with the Falcons on bye next week, the coaching staff could get a chance to reassess the backfield workload heading into a Week 12 clash with the Saints.

Only 59 total yards

Robinson rushed the ball 11 times for 51 yards and also lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Vikings. He added two catches on four targets for eight yards.

Robinson had six carries at halftime as opposed to only three for Tyler Allgeier. That usage flipped when Robinson lost a fumble late in the third quarter, and he found himself on the bench for Atlanta's next two possessions. When he was on the field, Robinson didn't record many big plays, but he consistently picked up several yards per carry. Despite being selected eighth overall in the 2023 NFL Draft, Robinson has seen fewer than 15 carries in all but one game in his rookie campaign.

First rushing score of career

Robinson rushed the ball 11 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans. He was targeted five times but did not record a reception.

After receiving only one carry in Week 7 due to an illness, Robinson led the Atlanta backfield with 11 carries. Even with relatively limited opportunity, he made his mark on the game with a long gain of 25 yards as well as a touchdown run of 13 yards -- the first rushing score of his career. With the performance, Robinson topped 50 rushing yards for the second time in his last six games.

Avoids injury report

Robinson (illness) wasn't listed on the Falcons' first Week 8 practice report Wednesday, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

Robinson was the subject of some angst in the fantasy realm for his lack of usage this past Sunday at Tampa Bay, but an illness was chalked up as the reason for one carry and no targets on 11 offensive snaps. He told D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution after Wednesday's session that he was a full participant, which came to pass. Robinson thus is poised to return to the workload that he handled for the first six weeks of the season (17.7 touches per game) Sunday at Tennessee.

Set to practice

Coach Arthur Smith said Wednesday that Robinson (illness) will participate in practice, Terrin Waack of the Falcons' official site reports.

Robinson only handled one touch during the Falcons' 16-13 win over the Buccaneers in Week 7 after alerting the coaching staff he "wasn't feeling like himself" during pregame warmups, but he's not expected to be hampered in any capacity during Sunday's road matchup against the Titans. The rookie first-round pick hasn't missed a practice all season, and it appears likely that he'll be listed as a full participant on Wednesday's injury report.

Won't be affected by illness Week 8

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-23

Robinson (illness), who carried once for three yards while being limited to playing 11 of the Falcons' 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Buccaneers, isn't expected to face any restrictions heading into Atlanta's Week 8 game against the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Though Robinson wasn't included on the Falcons' Week 7 injury report, Rapoport relays that head coach Arthur Smith was made aware during pregame warmups that the rookie running back "wasn't feeling like himself." Robinson took only a handful of snaps in the first half of the contest as a result, then sat out most of the next two quarters before checking back into the contest late in the fourth quarter and getting his lone carry with less than a minute remaining to set up Younghoe Koo's game-winning field goal. The Falcons leaned more heavily on Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson as a result, but whatever ailment was bothering Robinson on Sunday isn't expected to be anything that follows him into the upcoming week. Robinson seemingly has a good chance to turn in a full practice when the Falcons begin Week 8 prep Wednesday.

Doesn't feel well, gets one touch

Robinson (illness) rushed once for three yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Buccaneers.

Robinson played just one snap in the first quarter and didn't log a touch while Atlanta went with a combination of Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson in the backfield. Atlanta's 2023 first-round pick finished the first half without a touch on six total snaps, and coach Arthur Smith relayed after halftime that Robinson "isn't feeling well," per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Curiously, Robinson's lone carry came in the final minute of the fourth quarter, two plays before the Falcons kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired. Whatever was bothering Robinson isn't expected to impact his availability for Week 8 against the Titans, though his fantasy managers would have appreciated advance notice about the rookie's status from the Falcons, who did not list Robinson on their injury report heading into the game.

Modest production in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-15

Robinson rushed 13 times for 37 yards and caught five of eight targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders.

Robinson and Tyler Allgeier each saw 13 rushing attempts, but the latter was slightly more efficient, totaling 51 yards. The rookie was still able to somewhat salvage his fantasy production by finishing second on the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards behind Drake London. Robinson's dual-threat ability has been on display to start the campaign, tallying 26 catches for 189 yards and two scores across six games, but fantasy managers had higher expectations when selecting the Texas product in the first round of drafts this summer. Robinson has boomed twice already and established himself as a high-floor option, but he's yet to see over 20 rushing attempts in a game this season. If that trend continues, it'll be difficult for Robinson to finish as a top-10 running back in fantasy this season.
