Name these RBs who's "situation is more set in stone." 

 

Alvin Kamara.  Dalvin Cook.  Derrick Henry.

 

Really outside of first rounders or maybe some early 2nd rounders, outside of those picks who has a better situation?

Non-Robinson owners and former owners who "sold high" many weeks ago continue to throw shade at a guy who is: #4 in rushing attempts among all RBs (behind Henry, Cook, Jacobs) #3 in rushing

James Robinson.

Exactly - and NOBODY is trading you Kamara, Cook or Henry without giving up the house.

Honestly a little worried Luton stays under center the rest of the way and we lose those valuable checkdowns. Only 2 targets in that Houston game sucks, did anyone watch the full game, is this going to be the norm going forward or was it a function of something else?

Does Thompson also still play a significant role when they are behind?

Robinson had a 72-28 percent snap count advantage over Thompson last game.  This is greater than JRobs average which is probably in the low 60% range.

Thomson only got 1 carry to JRob's 25.  Thomson had 4 targets and caught them all.  JRob has 2 targets without a reception.

I'd prefer a higher snap count for JRob, but the carries are more than fine.  I do not think Thompson is a better receiving option than JRob even if that is his "specialty".  Unless your passing RB is clearly the better option you are better off using your main RB.  Using a passing specialist RB just signals that you're going to pass.  Thompson should just be used to give JRob some rest from time to time in the game.  JRob should be receiving some dump off plays including some designed short passes/screens.  It's not like he's Henry, the guy doesn't have to just pound it up the middle 25 times to make an impact.

Yes, I'm not a profession football coach or anything and I should be trusting the guys on the field over my analysis, but could I really do any worse than their OC Gruden?  How hard is it to coach a football team to a 1-7 record?

Not really related to his performance, but made an account just to note how professional he is despite having every reason to be cocky or full of himself.  From undrafted rookie to workhorse with the performance to more-than-justify it.  The feeling of "all of you were wrong about me" has to be so big considering the circumstances and his young age.  He's probably in the minority of people who wouldn't be fazed by this new-found success.  When I watch him score, his teammates are more hyped than he is; at most he puts his arms up as he walks towards his teammates before handing the ball to the ref. 

Not just good, but classy as well.  Runs like Ray Rice, carries himself like Barry Sanders.  I know it doesn't contribute to fantasy football, but I really respect this guy from what I can say I know about him.  Happy he's made it so far.

JR has to be legitimately near the top of the list when it comes to fantasy MVP. Sure, he won't win the scoring title in your league but getting him for free off the WW in August might have won YOUR TEAM the scoring title and a Chip. Trade deadline just passed in many leagues, we're in for the rest of the way now. 👍

As a fantasy football fan, You really do love to see it. Love to see a kid who worked his a** off and gets the opportunity he’s been dreaming of since he was a little boy.

Anyone worried this game gets out of hand fast and CT is the pass catching back in catch up mode. Don't get me wrong, I'm playing JRob, just hope they don't abandon the run or atleast use him in the pass game more this week. 

No. They've been down with a healthy CT watching on the sideline.

Yahoo player card notes for this week:

"Matchup Rating
 (11/15 @GB)

James Robinson is averaging over 100 scrimmage yards per game and has seven touchdowns through Jacksonville's first eight games heading into an appetizing Week 10 matchup with a Packers defense that has allowed 15 scrimmage touchdowns to running backs this season."

"Week 10 vs. Green Bay
Green Bay has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to Running Backs this season."

A lot of his catches weren't checkdowns, but rather designed passes to the RB. Those will increase once the team is more comfortable with Luton.

Checking the Jaguars schedule, there have been 6 games where Jaguar opponents scored 30+ points and a 7th where the opponent scored 27 points.  In 6 of those 7, James Robinson had good numbers. 11 carries is lowest he has had in a game.

Weather forecast for Jaguars at Green Bay game tomorrow:  24MPH wind, likely rain before game, and temperature around 39 degrees F.   So conditions point to a lower scoring game with shorter passes. 

James Robinson played college football in Illinois.  He played high school football in northern Illinois just a few miles south of the Wisconsin border. So he should be used to playing in those conditions - but not sure about other Jaguars players.  Green Bay is only 200 miles from his home, so he might have family and friends attending.

How concerned are we for his playoff schedule if we’re fortunate to get there?

WKS 15&16: @BAL, CHI 

Very concerned. I am hoping he does good this weekend so we can package him for top RB’s.

I'll cross that bridge when I get there, but at the moment, I'm not concerned. Things can change between now and then with either the Ravens or the Bears defense. And besides, the Bears are 10th in my leagues in RB PA...so good, but not scary good. The Bears aren't a squad, right now, that would keep me from starting him as my RB2 or Flex.
