On track for vet minicamp

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-21

Coach Raheem Morris said Tuesday that Robinson (ankle) is on schedule for the start of veteran minicamp June 10, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Robinson suffered an ankle injury during OTAs last Tuesday, but all indications is that he's only dealing with a minor issue and will be back on the practice field June 10-12 for veteran minicamp. In the meantime, Tyler Allgeier should take most of the No. 1 reps, while rookie Jase McClellan (foot) could benefit from expanded opportunities if he's able to get healthy before Robinson. With Kirk Cousins (Achilles) now at the helm of Atlanta's offense, Robinson will be a popular Year 2 breakout candidate in 2024 fantasy drafts.

Tending to ankle injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-14

Coach Raheem Morris said Robinson will not participate in Tuesday's OTA practice due to an ankle injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Morris said that Robinson is expected to be on the field for Atlanta's mandatory minicamp, as is rookie Jase McClellan (foot), who is also currently sidelined. The insinuation that Robinson's injury is only a minor issue is a relief, but the situation will still warrant monitoring until such time as the star running back is officially back on the field. Robinson could be primed for a Year 2 breakout with the arrival of Kirk Cousins (Achilles) promising an improved Falcons offense, but for the rest of OTAs, Tyler Allgeier could get a chance to handle the top backfield reps.

Offense promises improvement

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-13

Robinson looks set to benefit from an improved offense Year 2 with Kirk Cousins (Achilles) slated to sign a four-year, $180 million contract with Atlanta, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Robinson, the eighth overall pick of last year's draft, fell just short of 1,000 rushing yards (976) as a rookie but showcased a three-down skillset, boosting his fantasy totals with a 58-487-4 line through the air. Catching passes from Cousins, who will need to first recover from his Achilles injury, will alone provide a boost to Robinson's prospects, but if the Falcons can finally field a more legitimate passing game with Drake London, Kyle Pitts and new face Darnell Mooney, that two-dimensional offense will help keep defenses honest. Robinson and teammate Tyler Allgeier faced 8-plus defenders in the box 20.6 and 30.7 percent of the time last year, respectively, metrics that will stand to decline if Cousins manages to threaten opposing secondaries downfield more efficiently than Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke did. Robinson will be a popular breakout candidate for the 2024 campaign, with the tantalizing promise of an Atlanta offense finally headlined by competent quarterback play.

Big receiving day in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Robinson rushed 11 times for 28 yards and brought in seven of eight targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' 48-17 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Robinson scuffled on the ground throughout the afternoon but paced the team in both receptions and receiving yards. The talented rookie also recorded a 71-yard touchdown reception his longest catch of the season. Robinson finishes his first NFL campaign with under 50 rushing yards in three of his last five games, a downturn that helped land him just short of 1,000 rushing yards (976); however, he complemented those numbers with a 58-487-4 line through the air, and a more aggressive offensive philosophy in 2024 could facilitate a true breakout season.

Garners 86 total yards in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Robinson rushed 15 times for 75 yards and brought in three of four targets for 11 yards in the Falcons' 37-17 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Robinson put together an efficient performance on the ground, crossing the 70-yard threshold for the second straight game. The rookie's carry total was also his highest since Week 13, but he went without a touchdown for the fourth straight contest. Backfield mate Tyler Allgeier logged 10 fewer carries but scored on an impressive 75-yard reception, so the two backs will continue to share the workload to a certain degree in the Week 18 finale against the Saints.

Strong all-around effort in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Robinson rushed 12 times for 72 yards and secured seven of 10 targets for 50 yards in the Falcons' 29-10 win over the Colts on Sunday.

Robinson led the Falcons in rushing attempts and yards, as well as receptions, receiving yards and targets, making him the unofficial team MVP on the afternoon. The explosive rookie's productive day was an especially welcome sight for fantasy managers that were placing faith in him following his tally of 14 total yards in Week 15 against the Panthers. Robinson will aim to build on the impressive afternoon against the Bears on the road in Week 17.

Forgettable day in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Robinson rushed seven times for 11 yards and brought in one target for three yards in the Falcons' 9-7 loss to the Panthers on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.

Robinson's day was as dreary as his final line implies, with the rookie producing his lowest yardage output on the ground since Week 7 against the Buccaneers (three yards). Robinson's sparse usage was especially disappointing in the context of the fact it came on the heels of six straight double-digit rush-attempt tallies and three consecutive games with multiple receptions. Robinson's fumble was also critical, considering it came at Atlanta's own 21-yard line late in the third quarter and led to a Panthers field goal. While backfield mate Tyler Allgeier doubled up Robinson in carries Sunday, it would seem likely the first-round pick reclaims a larger share of the work on the ground in a Week 16 home matchup against the Colts on Christmas Eve.

Rushing touchdown in Week 14 loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Robinson rushed 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and secured five of seven targets for 54 yards in the Falcons' 29-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Robinson logged just one more carry than backfield mate Tyler Allgeier, but he was the only one of the two to get into the end zone. The rookie did so on a three-yard run early in the fourth quarter, which served as Robinson's fourth rushing score of the season overall. Robinson has found running room hard to come by in the last two games, however, netting just 87 yards on 28 carries in that span. The rookie does have multiple receptions in three straight contests, however, and he'll draw a matchup potentially favorable to resurgence on the ground when the Falcons do battle with the Panthers on the road in Week 15.

Gets 21 touches against Jets

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Robinson rushed 18 times for 53 yards and caught three of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.

Robinson had just six rushing yards on eight first-half carries but found more running room in the second half as New York's defense wore down. Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson combined for 37 yards on 13 rushing attempts, so Robinson continues to face competition for touches despite being the most effective running back in the Falcons' run-heavy offense. Nonetheless, Robinson has averaged 18.7 rushing attempts over the past three games and topped 50 rushing yards in five consecutive games. He should remain the top option in Atlanta's busy backfield in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.
