Fantasy owners were very pleased with James Robinson’s performance over the weekend as he accounted for 2 of the Jaguars 3 touchdowns in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Robinson was a force to be reckoned with on the field repeatedly running over defenders and making them look silly. Robinson finished the day with 119 yards on the ground to go along with his rushing TD on team-high 22 carriers. Also adding 4 catches for 18 yards and another touchdown through the air. In fact Robinson’s stellar performance on Sunday made him get nominated for the NFL’s rookie of the week award! Jacksonville lost another tough one to the Chargers 39-29 falling to 1-6 on the season but now the Jaguars will have time to rest this coming weekend as the team finally hits their bye week and will get time to prepare for the final stretch of the season.
*Bonus Note: After last Sunday RB James Robinson now joins an exclusive club of other talented RBs such as Marcus Allen, Billy Sims, Joe Cribbs, Ricky Watters & Saquon Barkley to have at least 475+ rushing yards, 225+ receiving yards and 6 total touchdowns in his first 7 career games.
