Denard Robinson rushed seven times for 27 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Titans.
The seven carries matched Robinson's most of the season. Bafflingly, he was the Jaguars' preferred option inside the red zone. Robinson got five carries from inside the Titans' 12-yard line, including two from the two, but failed to turn any of them into scores. It was classic over-coaching from Gus Bradley, who simply should have gone with T.J. Yeldon. Despite tonight's usage, Shoelace remains off the fantasy radar. Nov 20 - 12:22 AM

Coach Gus Bradley said the Jaguars must "find a way" to get Denard Robinson the ball.

Robinson saw a season-high 10 touches with T.J. Yeldon sidelined in Week 6 but didn't play a snap Sunday against Buffalo. Shoelace can help the Jaguars in the passing game, but isn't big enough to be anything more than a situational back. Despite Bradley's comments, it's unlikely Robinson will emerge as anything more than a role player.
Oct 27 - 1:22 PM

Denard Robinson rushed seven times for 19 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 19 yards Week 6 against the Texans.

Robinson played second fiddle to Toby Gerhart against Houston, touching the ball two fewer times and appearing to play fewer snaps. Robinson was in his first game back from a sprained MCL, and there is a chance he was limited by the injury. Even if T.J. Yeldon (groin) is forced to miss another game, Robinson will not be worth using next week against the Bills.
Oct 18 - 4:41 PM

The Florida Times Union's Hays Carlyon suspects Denard "Shoelace" Robinson will out-touch Toby Gerhart Sunday against the Texans, despite the Jaguars giving Gerhart the nominal start.

Carlyon went as far as to predict Shoelace will handle 15 touches, and Gerhart will get only six. Robinson is certainly a more effective runner than Gerhart, with far more big-play ability. It's unclear how much Robinson's health is a concern after he missed the last three games with a sprained MCL.
Oct 18 - 11:58 AM

Denard Robinson (knee) is listed as probable for Week 6.

If T.J. Yeldon (groin, questionable) can't play against the Texans on Sunday, Robinson would share the Jaguars' backfield with Toby Gerhart.
Oct 16 - 1:21 PM

Denard Robinson (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's his first action since going down with a sprained MCL in Week 2. With T.J. Yeldon suffering a groin injury Week 5 and missing practice Wednesday, Robinson could step right into a meaningful role against the Texans.
Oct 14 - 3:52 PM

Denard Robinson (knee) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Bucs.

Still recovering from a sprained MCL, Robinson has been out since getting hurt Week 2. He should be nearing a return within the next couple weeks.
Oct 9 - 11:11 AM

Denard Robinson (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

Robinson is out indefinitely with a sprained MCL. Toby Gerhart (probable, abdomen) will back up every-down starter T.J. Yeldon.
Sep 25 - 7:21 PM

Denard Robinson has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and showed up the Jaguars' facility on Monday with a "big brace" on his left knee.

We've changed Robinson's injury status from "week to week" to "out indefinitely." MCL sprains can last a month or longer when they're severe. On Monday, Shoelace "wouldn't estimate" how much time he'll miss. The Jaguars will likely have to sign a free agent running back this week. In the meantime, impressive rookie T.J. Yeldon will operate as a high-volume every-down back.
Sep 21 - 4:20 PM

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson is week to week with a sprained MCL.

Robinson suffered the injury early in the team's Week 2 win over the Dolphins. With Toby Gerhart (abdomen) still out, rookie T.J. Yeldon dominated the running back snaps after Robinson left the game. That should continue as long as both Gerhart and Robinson are sidelined.
Sep 21 - 1:06 PM

Denard Robinson carried the ball once for nine yards in the Jaguars' Week 2 win over the Dolphins.

Robinson missed most of Sunday's game with a knee injury, the extent of which was never revealed. "Shoelace" is the change-of-pace back behind T.J. Yeldon.
Sep 20 - 8:39 PM

Denard Robinson rushed five times for 19 yards and caught two passes for 26 yards Week 1 against the Panthers.

Robinson was the clear No. 2 to rookie T.J. Yeldon, but he was given a couple series to himself in the second half. Though he could create some chunk plays in a change-of-pace role, Robinson will not be a fantasy asset unless Yeldon goes down.
Sep 13 - 4:49 PM

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco said RB Denard Robinson has a chance to open the season as the starter.

DiRocco has consistently questioned rookie T.J Yeldon's early-season workload this offseason, but this one seems unlikely. The Jaguars used Yeldon as a three-down back in his first preseason action with Robinson filling in as a change-of-pace option. Robinson has played well, but Yeldon has much more upside.

Denard Robinson rushed three times for seven yards and caught two passes for 29 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

Robinson was the Jaguars' No. 2 back in this one, mixing in with the first-team offense behind T.J. Yeldon, who operated as an every-down back. Robinson handled a drive to himself, but was pulled at the goal line for Yeldon, who plunged in from two yards out. Robinson is ticketed for change-of-pace duties in the Jaguars' offense. He's a low-ceiling handcuff for Yeldon owners.
Aug 28 - 10:39 PM

Denard Robinson rushed six times for 19 yards and also secured one catch for seven yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

Robinson was met by brick walls on most of his carries. His longest gain went for just seven yards. It looked like he had a sure touchdown at one point but Blake Bortles didn't put enough mustard on the throw and Jon Beason swatted it away at the last second. Robinson enjoyed a few weeks of fantasy success last year but a repeat performance is unlikely now that T.J. Yeldon is carrying the mail.
