James Robinson 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Jacksonville added some new pieces in this year’s draft, including Trevor Lawrence at quarterback and Travis Etienne at running back. Lawrence and Etienne were college teammates at Clemson and will now get their chance to shine together on the Jaguars after being drafted in the first round as cornerstone pieces for the franchise.

That’s going to hurt Robinson’s value, as he’ll likely take a backseat to Etienne. Etienne was taken with a first-round pick for a reason, and Robinson has been an afterthought throughout his entire career. Unfortunately, he’s already become one in Jacksonville.

As a backup running back, Robinson should still get some time in the backfield and could be used in passing situations. At this point, it’s unclear who will start for the Jaguars at running back. There’s still some value if Robinson is available late and you need a back, but Etienne certainly seems like an upgrade over Robinson.

James Robinson 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)

Robinson scored 10 touchdowns last season and ran for 1,070 yards. He’s not going to break away from defenders, but he does have the ability to fight for extra yards. He’s also more than capable of catching passes out of the backfield and had five starts with six or more targets. If he’s used, he’ll likely be used in passing situations, which could help give Robinson some value in a PPR league.
