2015 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Robinson started nine games for the Jaguars last year and had a four-game stretch during which he averaged 17.7 Fantasy points in PPR leagues. He gained more than 100 yards from scrimmage in three of those games. However, his season was ended in Week 14 by a sprained foot. The Jaguars threw to him only 31 times, which led to 23 catches for 124 yards. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry, which was significantly better than the YPC averages of all other Jaguars running backs (3.95). Robinson was the best option in a low-upside offense, but his success may have just been created by opportunity. That success will give him a solid opportunity to capture the lead RB job, but his skill set and resume suggest he won't keep the gig all year. I like his hot run from 2014, and I think this offensive line can improve in run blocking, but there is no way I'm placing an early bet on him on draft day. Even if he stays healthy, he may touch the ball no more than 150 times with Yeldon now in the fold.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon exited Sunday's game with a groin injury and did not return. However, the injury is not believed to be serious. He exited late in the fourth quarter, so it isn't much of a surprise that he didn't return to the game. Yeldon was likely held out for precautionary reasons.Fantasy Analysis:
The Jags really can't afford to lose Yeldon at this point. Both Denard Robinson and Bernard Pierce are currently sidelined with injury. If Yeldon can't go, they will be left with just Toby Gerhart and undrafted rookie Corey Grant in their backfield. Gerhart will be the starter if Yeldon can't suit up Week 6. The Jags are hopeful Yeldon will be able to play, however, you will have to monitor the situation throughout the week.
