FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
Headed into 2014, Robinson was an attractive late-round sleeper. Once Ingram hit the sidelines due to injury, Robinson awoke, racking up 245 yards and a score on 47 carries during a three-game stretch starting in Week 3. he averaged 4.8 yards per carry for the year, a half yard more than Ingram. However, the Saints like to give their pass-catching backs increased playing time, and Robinson has 53 catches in 50 career games. In 2012 at West Texas A&M, Khiry rushed for 1,741 yards on 273 carries with 15 TDs. He also caught 39 passes for 430 yards and four more touchdowns. Robinson is a power back with good size (6 feet, 220 pounds). He runs hard, can break tackles, and his resume gives him a chance in the passing game. Khiry should be drafted as the handcuff to Ingram.
New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson missed an entire week of practice with an undisclosed injury. Nonetheless, the injury is believed to be minor and he is fully expected to suit up Week 1. The Saints may be relying on him as C.J. Spiller is predictably out with a knee injury. His status for the season opener is very much in question.Fantasy Analysis:
Robinson is a talented kid whose been buried on the Saints depth chart. He is an excellent handcuff given Mark Ingram and Spillers extensive injury history. And quite frankly he's better than Spiller. Spiller just so happens to have a different skill set. Robinson is a sneaky good sleeper pick. He may pay dividends if you take a late-round flier on him.
