James Robinson is a trustworthy fantasy football option in 2022

Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson will enter his third year in 2022. In 2020, the undrafted free agent from Illinois State impressed in his rookie season, breaking the NFL record for most scrimmage yards by an undrafted rookie.

In 2021, he suffered a second crisis. 2021 is also the year the Jaguars selected former Clemson running back and Trevor Lawrence teammate Travis Etienne with the 25th pick.

We never got to see the two ball carriers co-exist in 2021 as Etienne suffered a foot injury during pre-season which required end-of-season surgery.

Under new head coach Doug Pederson, we’ll see that 2022 double and the fantastic implications for both running backs. More hype surrounds Etienne, who has a higher floor, while Robinson has a higher ceiling. There’s still reason to get hype for Robinson as well.

Currently as RB39 in drafts, Robinson has the opportunity to surpass his ADP and become a quality starter in all fantasy formats. On draft day, players can use these five reasons to convince themselves to sign the 23-year-old running back.

1. James Robinson is currently listed as the starting running back for the Jaguars

In week 16 of the 2020 season, Robinson suffered a torn Achilles, ending his season indefinitely. Since then, Robinson has been on a positive trajectory with his rehab, working hard all spring and summer. He did not start training camp on the PUP list and started camp by perform individual exercises. Since then he is cut and run routes in team exercises.

Pederson hopes Robinson will be fully released by mid-August, which is a good sign for his Week 1 availability.

Ahead of the Pro Football Hall of Fame game, the Jaguars released an unofficial depth chart that ranked Robinson as the No. 1 running back, ahead of No. 2 Travis Etienne and No. 3 Snoop Conner.

It’s still too early to tell, but there’s reason to believe the team see Robinson as this season’s RB1, with Etienne coming in for a change of pace or third down situations.

He was a starter for almost two seasons, except when he fell out of favor with former head coach Urban Meyer, which is no longer an issue. The new technical staff believe in him and love his skills.
