Khiry Robinson projects as the "odd man out" in New Orleans' backfield again this year.
Mark Ingram was re-signed to a $16M deal and C.J. Spiller was brought in to be the change-of-pace option. Expect these two to monopolize touches, leaving the #FreeKhiry movement in need of an injury. The talented Robinson is merely a big-back handcuff -- albeit one that will be atop the Waiver Wire adds if anything happens to Ingram. Jul 6 - 10:03 AM

CBS' Jason La Canfora speculates the Saints would be willing to trade Khiry Robinson.

La Canfora is just connecting dots here, not reporting. The talented Robinson is buried in New Orleans behind Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller. Perhaps the Cowboys, in need of running back help, would be willing to part with a guy like TE Gavin Escobar to help the Saints compensate for the loss of Jimmy Graham.

Khiry Robinson is expected to only get "occasional touches" as a "change-of-pace" back.

About a month ago, Robinson was penciled in atop the Saints depth chart at running back. Then Mark Ingram was re-signed to a $16M contract and C.J. Spiller was brought in on an $18M deal. The Saints have used committee approaches at the position before, but Robinson will be firmly behind Ingram as a big-back handcuff only. Last year, Sean Payton saddled up Ingram for 17.3 carries per game.

The Saints were reportedly "primed" to increase Khiry Robinson's role before his Week 7 arm fracture.

It's very notable with the Saints unlikely to bring back Mark Ingram in free agency. Robinson has flashed plenty of ability during his two NFL seasons, consistently ranking near the top of yards after contact per attempt charts and quietly handling himself well in the pass game. Robinson has turned his 130 NFL carries into 586 yards (4.50 YPC) with four touchdowns. There's 2015 breakout appeal here if Ingram walks.

Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 15 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 17 win over the Bucs, adding two catches for an additional 22 yards.

With Pierre Thomas sidelined, Robinson got his most run since Week 5. Robinson missed Weeks 8-13 with a broken arm. The second year undrafted free agent closes the book on his sophomore campaign with 76 rushes for 362 yards (4.76 YPC) and three touchdowns. He added an 8/63/0 line as a receiver. With Mark Ingram headed to the open market, it's possible Robinson could be returning to a much bigger role next season. He's a strong hold in dynasty leagues.

Khiry Robinson rushed two times for eight yards against the Falcons.

He added one catch for five yards. Even with Pierre Thomas sidelined by a foot injury early in the game, Robinson could not get much run in the Saints' struggling offense. He is unlikely to make much noise in the Saints' season finale against the Bucs next week.

Khiry Robinson rushed for 10 yards on three carries in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Bears.

They were Robinson's first three totes in seven games after he missed six contests with an arm injury. Mark Ingram still dominated carries with 17 of them.

Khiry Robinson (arm) was held without a touch in his Week 14 return.

With the Saints behind the eight ball from the opening whistle, there was no room to involve Robinson. We'd expect Robinson to start spelling Mark Ingram 5-6 times per week, but he's off the radar in all formats of fantasy.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:26:00 PM

Khiry Robinson (arm) is active for Week 14 against the Panthers.

Returning from a six-game absence, Robinson should spell Mark Ingram 5-6 times in the Superdome. He's not on the fantasy radar, and isn't a major concern for Ingram's status. Inactive for the Saints are WR Robert Meachem, DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, NT Lawrence Virgil, OT Nick Becton, LB Moise Fokou, OG Senio Kelemente and DB Terrence Frederick.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 11:38:00 AM

Khiry Robinson (arm) is listed as probable for Week 14.

He'll serve as a breather back behind Mark Ingram versus the Panthers.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 03:44:00 PM

Khiry Robinson (arm surgery) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Robinson is finally ready to return after missing six games. He'll occasionally spell Mark Ingram, but isn't a threat to Ingram's top-18 status. We wouldn't expect Robinson to handle more than 4-5 carries on Sunday.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 05:32:00 PM

Khiry Robinson (arm surgery) returned to practice Wednesday.

He was officially limited. Robinson should return this week, but is expected to play limited snaps. He isn't a major threat to Mark Ingram's workload, and won't be a recommended fantasy option.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 05:43:00 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects Khiry Robinson (arm) to be eased back into the lineup starting Week 14.

Mark Ingram has been running far too well for Khiry to really steal anything more than a couple big-back carries. Robinson also isn't as strong as a now-healthy Pierre Thomas in the pass game. Khiry's most likely role will be as a breather back and insurance down the stretch.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 09:41:00 AM

Saints coach Sean Payton said Khiry Robinson (arm) is expected back Week 14 against the Panthers.

Robinson has missed six weeks with an arm injury he originally characterized as a "boo-boo." Mark Ingram has dominated touches in Robinson's absence, getting at least 20 carries in 5-of-6 games and averaging over 100 yards a game. Robinson should slightly eat into Ingram's workload when he returns, but Ingram is the clear-cut No. 1 in the Saints' backfield.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 06:36:00 PM

Khiry Robinson (arm) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Mark Ingram should expect a sizable workload Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
