Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 12 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-2 targets for eight yards Week 3 against the Panthers.

Robinson and the entire running game struggled against the Panthers, but he managed to save his day with a two-yard score in the fourth quarter. Robinson continues to see 7-10 touches each week as Mark Ingram's backup, but he is not a usable fantasy asset.

Khiry Robinson had five carries for 48 yards in Week 2 against the Bucs.

He added one catch for nine yards. Robinson lined up as a receiver in the first half, but didn’t get his first carry until the third quarter. With C.J. Spiller limited, he was Mark Ingram's change-of-pace for the second straight week. Robinson's role will be reduced when Spiller gets fully healthy.

Saints RB Khiry Robinson was fined by the team for allegedly striking an intern in the head during training camp.

Robinson allegedly got into a dispute with the intern over whether the running back owed the intern money for driving him to a store to get his cell phone fixed during training camp. Robinson was not arrested or charged in the incident, but he was interviewed twice by the NFL regarding the altercation. The first of those interviews occurred without an NFLPA representative present, which is not supposed to happen. The NFLPA is investigating the matter.

Khiry Robinson rushed eight times for 19 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards in the Saints' Week 1 loss to Arizona.

Robinson filled the role that should eventually be occupied by C.J. Spiller (knee), who may return in Week 2 or 3. Robinson shared time near-evenly with Mark Ingram as the Saints' backs rotated in and out of the game. Robinson is worth hanging onto as a bench stash in most 12- and 14-team leagues, but his role won't be as potent once Spiller reenters the backfield.
Sep 13 - 7:45 PM

Khiry Robinson is practicing in full this week.

Robinson missed some practice time last week with an undisclosed ailment. He will be all systems go for Week 1 against the Cardinals, and could handle an expanded role behind Mark Ingram with C.J. Spiller (knee) not playing.
Sep 9 - 8:07 PM

Khiry Robinson missed practice this week with an undisclosed injury.

The Saints don’t expect the injury to affect his Week 1 status. Robinson isn’t more than an early-down backup to Mark Ingram, though there are rumblings C.J. Spiller (knee scope) might not be ready for the opener. Robinson should go undrafted in 12-team leagues.
Aug 29 - 3:12 PM

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.
Mar 23 - 7:59 AM

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.
Jan 13 - 9:37 AM

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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:06:00 PM

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.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 12:10:00 AM

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.
